The Lyrics

All meant in fun. Honest.
In two thousand three we took a little trip
along with Royce, the Florios, and of course, Merry and Pip.
We took a little case of beer and we took our cell phones
and we met up with DiRito in the town of San Antone.

We fired our puns, and Guy just kept a-comin'.
He's keeping us a-laughin' like he did a while ago.
We fired once more, and then he went a-runnin'
on down to Corpus Christi and the Gulf of Mexico.

We looked down the highway and we saw DiRito comin'.
We tried to figure out what was the ditty he was hummin'.
We saw the light gleam off his diamond ring.
We stood beside our Punmobile and didn't say a thing.

We fired our puns, and Guy just kept a-comin'.
He's keeping us a-laughin' like he did a while ago.
We fired once more, and then he went a-runnin'
on down to Corpus Christi and the Gulf of Mexico.

Bill Florio said we could take him by surprise
if we hit him with some parodies as if they were cream pies.
We checked our humor and made sure that we could spell.
Then we hammered on our keyboards and we really gave him... well...

We... fired our puns, and Guy just kept a-comin'.
He's keeping us a-laughin' like he did a while ago.
We fired once more, and then he went a-runnin'
on down to Corpus Christi and the Gulf of Mexico.

Yeah, he parodied Iraqis and he parodied the lib'rals
and he even did some songs that the Pippin didn't know.
We typed so fast that we finally did catch him.
And now he's on the highway down the Gulf of Mexico.

I hit my computer 'til the circuits fizzled out
so I grabbed a generator and it worked without a doubt.
I wrote a Star Trek parody and some the sporting kind.
And when I did some Dubya songs, well, Guy just lost his mind!

We fired our puns, and Guy just kept a-comin'.
He's keeping us a-laughin' like he did a while ago.
We fired once more, and then he went a-runnin'
on down to Corpus Christi and the Gulf of Mexico.

Yeah, he parodied Iraqis and he parodied the lib'rals
and he even did some songs that the Pippin didn't know.
We typed so fast that we finally did catch him.
And now he's on the highway down the Gulf of Mexico.
Of course, the home-State refs called it a draw. I can live with that.

Unfair! It took 4 or 5 of you against Guy? It was rather funny, though. (p.s. I still want you to read the news)

How were the sides determined? If they were decided by political ideology, Michael, it might have been the other 6 against you. But, of course, with parodies like this, you would have held your own.

Honestly, If it was in good fun you would have mentioned me, after all I'm the most fun , besides maybe Mer & Pip. Were all here to have fun . Stop bickering like two year olds, or I will have to use corporal punishment on every one of you. And I'm afraid some of you may enjoy that just a liitle too much.

Don't worry, Wild Man, your day is coming. Then again, considering my past work, maybe you SHOULD worry, chuckle chuckle smirk smirk. Let's see, "Born to Be Wild"? "Wild Thing, you make my puns bling..." "Runaway Child Punning Wild"? "Sunshine Chalupaman?"

Thanks for the many compliments , Mike P. Sometimes being Mr. Sunshine isn't an easy job, but someone has to do it.
