The Lyrics

The Jeremy Lin-go thLing is gettLin’ a Linttle out of hand.
This amazLin’ player took ’em all by surprise,
PlayLin’ in a buildLin’ with Lintels of great size.
A Lincredible player; spLinLin’ around, he
Has Linitiated what’s called Linsanity.
At the Linception of his fame, many Lintrude
With unLinmited wordplay because Lin’s the mood.

ThLinkLin’ that the punsters would give Lin? Not a chance;
Don’t get Lin a Linvid snit at their silly stance,
Although we’re Linto a state of Linanity—
LincreasLin' is the dLin of the Lin Lintany.
Give ’em all a Linch and Lindulge some latitude:
For now he is the Knicks Linchpin and Lin’s the dude.
(Lin’s LinLinsic talent has Linspired a Lin mood.)

Lin’s the mood, a LinLin’ story,
Lin’s the dude, he’s LinLin’ glory.
Lin’s the dude, he isn’t slippLin’.
Those Linterested Lin hoops Lintone, “Lin’s the dude now!”

Lin’s the dude, Linured to hissLin’
(Lin’s the dude; Linjured—no bliss then),
Lin’s the dude Linatics lovLin’,
Lin’s got ’tude, Lintent on pissLin’
Off on each opposLin’ team all the Linept dudes, wow!

Lin Lingo is LimnLin’ naught and it’s kinda skewed,
But hey, he is the Knicks Linchpin and Lin’s the mood.
For a LinLincible season, fans Lin the mood.
Linchpin of once not-LinLin’ Knicks is Lin, the dude.

LinLinabulations risLin’ to the skies.
Lin Lin Lin the wonder canLine saved many guys,
But on Lin I thLink I’d rather Link for a chance;
He ain’t got a Lin-Lin-like cartoon hero stance.
It is Linevitable that Lin will be boo’d
By the Lingrate opposLin’ fans, ’cause Lin’s the dude.

Love to Linish this dLinm tune AABBA;
Linmericks, my main Linterest, are laid out this way,
But the syllable Lintervals go against me:
“Mood” Lines Linstantiated AlexandrLinely*
(And possibly riskLin’ life and Linmb I would be).
The five-Line form at times can be Lintensely rude.
The last mood I’d want to fLind myself: Lin the lewd.


*Alexandrine: line of poetry with 12 syllables

What's with the Lin-cendiary lyrics, JAB? Are you calling for a Lin-junction for these puns here at AMR? Are you Lin-sinuating that it is not a Lin-dication of great Lin-telligence or Lin-genuity to make one of these puns; that, Lin fact, any Lin-bred hillbilly normally Lin-capable of a single Lin-teresting thought who has access to a dictionary can look up an "I" word and then Lin-sert a "L" Lin front of it; and that this doesn't make him the next Lin-ny Bruce or George Car-Lin? (if I may be so Lin-delicate) I have to admit, this is a most Lin-triguing thought, Lin-deed

Ooooooh, I just got that, Linda -- Jeremy, jeremiad. I didn't catch it for about 10 minutes until I moved onto whole other web site; then it hit me. Kind of like a cyber double take

Sir64, . . . please refrain Sir, perchance you are confusing Lint with the season of Lent . . . ?
