The Lyrics

You're a cheapskate, Mr. Lint
You fly coach on a breeze
You're a clump of fuzzy wuzzy
Camping anywhere you please,
Mr. Lint
Not so tough a squatter,
I'll evict you with a sneeze..

You're a dastard, Mr. Lint
Unmastered is your soul,
A setter on my sweater
The red one I wear to bowl, Mr. Lint
Watch as I pluck you with my
Ninety-nine and a half-cent lint roll

You're an aisle guy, Mr. Lint
You and cousins floor the hall
You may bounce but you can't hide,
So I will find you after all, Mr. Lint
Given a choice between the dust, or you,
It'd be the dust, I'd choose to fall

You're a bad snag, Mr. Lint
Such a fluffy puffy snuck
I hate you on my knitted socks
Off them you're hard to pluck,
Mr. Lint

The three words that best describe you
Are as follows, and I quote,
Stick, Stack, Stuck

You're a clinger, Mr. Lint
Edging in through tiny cracks
Proud big shot on my stuff, but I'll
Stop you right in your tracks,
Mr. Lint

Your plan's to make my house a clump heap
Then hide out in my new clothes dryer,
You'll wind up right outside in my rubbish,
A disposable,
Flat dead duck when garbage truck packs..

So take a hint, now, Mr. Lint
Keep your butt out of my house,
Or you'll wind up like turkey feathers on
A Thanksgiving day rouse, Mr.Lint

In my big bagless Hoover spouting's deep
Dark dungeon..
Good riddance, you louse!

AFW - Good job. A bit of history...in the iconic cartoon special, this song was sung by Thurl Ravenscroft (the voice of Tony The Tiger). His name was inadvertently left off the credits, and Seuss was so distraught that he took out a full page ad in Variety to right the wrong. The music was written by Albert Hague (the white-bearded music teacher Mr. Schransky from the original T.V. series Fame). The man creditied for the lyrics is a Ted Geisel...actually Theodore Seuss Geisel (the Doctor himself). ;D

*Really* nicely done, AF! Loaded with clever lingo and I presume, some neologisms? (ie, 'snuck'---my vocab's limited!) 5 Green Eggs for ewer ham!

He's a clever little devil, and so are you!

I love this! I love this, Sam I Am. I also love green eggs and ham! Newt Gingrich is sometimes nicknamed "the Grinch" and 3 good words to describe him are STINK, STANK and STUNK, among other words. My gym teacher in the 6th grade was a "Mr. Lint". Dr. Seuss 4-EVAH!

Clever! And you need to tell me where you can find a 99 cent roll (2 pets, lots of fur)!

Anything by Dr. Seuss (where I first learned to read) is cool with me. Loved anthropomorphizing lint, and the homage to TOS with Stick, Stack, Stuck. Five, Fave, Fuve. (can't append the F to "Stuck" without getting in trouble. ;)

Take a piece of ordinary tape (I'd say Scotch, but that would move the discussion in a different direction), wrap around index finger with sticky side *out*, so that when the ends meet, they stick together. Roll that up and down the clothes or whatever. Works like a charm. (See? The Army made a *Man* out of me, just like they promised!)

Is this what people mean when they talk about "giving it up for lint"? I'll certainly give it up for this clever parody! 555

@ TT: Did someone say "scotch"??? :D........ BTW, this past week marked the 82nd birthday of Scotch Tape. [It's that kind of trivia mastery that got me where I am today, kids. Let that be a warning to you... ;)]

Thanks TT, like the hint from Turt-loise about the tape..how much would I use, 18 minutes for a Nixon fixin'....and thanks, Fiddlegirl, and great pun, "Giving it up for lint"

You'll give it up for anything -- oops, was I not supposed to say that in public? x-D ... and thanks for proving my point re: avoiding brand name of tape. Sooo nice to have a reliable "straight person". (was gonna use "second banana", but came to senses just in time).
      82nd birthday of Scotch Tape? ... and I wasted all that time tributing a much more trivial occasion -- why didn't you give me a heads-up? (stopping *right there*) xoxoxo.

I could not brush this one off without 555 pills. Glad this was not about Newt.
