Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

A homage to Homer ...
"When in old Springfield you are"


When in old Springfield you are
You’ll find Homer at Moe’s bar
Long as there are suds on tap
You will see him …

Emptying his tankard fast
Each time quicker than the last
Carl & Len yell “Moe, don’t nap …
Please refill him!”

He loves beer
And to him “getting head”
Means well-drawn ale instead
Of what you may think.

He’d not long survive a drought
Of lager, pils’ner, ale or stout
Like a trav’ler needs a map
He needs his brew.

Looking at the title I was wondering if it was going to be about Illinois or Missouri... I'm not very TV savvy ha ha. Anyway, cute one.

My favorite bars 1) Moe's 2) Cheers 3) Snickers

Thanks, folks. Merry -- actually, the croonin' cricket first performed the OS in the1940 not-made-for-TV movie. Any subsequent boob-tube presentation would've been a Jiminy-come- lately sort of thing. :-) Renaldo -- I'd have to go with 1) the Mos Eisley Cantina; 2) Cheers; 3) Heath, :-)

Hey Stan, I'm a little worried about you. You've been writing a lot about booze this week. Need to talk about it ?

Please, do take care!! Go easy on the liquor, Sir, as I do enjoy your writing.

:-) Not to worry, IB & li'lcakes .. jusbingeing on a theme. Tomorrow's entry, as Cleese and the gang would have it, is something completely different. :-)

So, Stan, was the original title glitch a faux pas or cheap subliminal advertising ? ;-p Good job.

Peregrin ... hadn't 'til your mention noticed my typo in the original title. I'd think it was something frighteningly Freudian, but sometimes a muff is just a muff. :-)
