Kelly/Sinatra, and Victor Borge
Parody Song Title:
"Take Our Hats Off To Borge"
Victor’s “Clown Prince of Denmark” -
Unique musical gags;
He detached lyrics and melody -
Spiffier spoof than an old parody.
For if you can handle the offset
The cadence will hit the mark,
Seventh Inning home-run you’ll score
At the old ballpark.
Tickets cheap for the ballgame,
Seats right up in the clouds;
We won’t buy overpriced drinks and snacks -
Friends snuck in with a couple six-packs.
Let me hoot and jeer at the home-team;
My date’s dismayed that she came,
For it’s one, two, three beers you’re out
At the old ballgame.
[F] Tickets cheap for the [C] ballgame,
[F] Seats right up in the [C7] clouds
[D7] We won’t buy overpriced [Gm] drinks and snacks -
[G7] Friends snuck in with a [C7] couple six-packs.
Let me [F] hoot and jeer at the [C7] home-team;
My [F7] date’s dismayed that she [Bb] came,
For it’s [Gm7] one, [C#7] two, [F] three beers you’re out
At the [G7] old [C7] ball-[F]-game.
BORGE +ve Version:
