The Lyrics

Many well known men named Dave or David
Some from long ago, some recent, too
Celebrities with different occupations,
And for this parody I'll list a few

These are the Daves, my friend,
The list may never end
A common tag on famous males, today
Which ones you choose to cheer,
Or brand a horses rear,
Is up to you, the reader, who will say
La la la la la la
La la la la la la

There's Dave Mathews, and there's Davey Crockett,
There's David Bowie, also David Blaine
Killer of John Lennon, David Chapman
And David Letterman of Top Ten fame

These are the Daves, my friend,
The list may never end
A common tag on famous males, today
Which ones you choose to cheer,
Or brand a horses rear,
Is up to you, the reader, who will say
La la la la la la
La la la la la la

There's David Copperfield, famous magician,
He made the Wall of China go away
Dave Chappelle, who always keeps us laughin'
Dave Garroway, the first host on, "Today"

These are the Daves, my friend,
The list may never end
A common tag on famous males, today
Which ones you choose to cheer,
Or brand a horses rear,
Is up to you, the reader who will say
La la la la la la
La la la la la la

David Allan Coe, the country singer,
Below Average Dave, parodist his trade
A British movie actor, David Niven
For comedy, some still dig David Spade

These are the Daves, my friend,
The list may never end
A common tag on famous males, today
Which ones you choose to cheer,
Or brand a horses rear,
Is up to you, the reader, who will say
La la la la la la
La la la la la la

David Brinkley, pioneering newsman,
David Arquette used to be on "Friends"
A well known funny author is Dave Barry,
And David Beckham has the soccer "Bends"

These are the Daves, my friend,
The list may never end
A common tag they've tacked on males, today
Which ones you choose to cheer,
Or brand a horses rear,
Is up to you, the reader who will say
La la la la la la
La la la la la la

David Grohl and David Jansen, actors,
And David Hasselhoff, the carpet clown
Last David is from David and Goliath,
I'm tired now, think I'll Goliath down..


These are the Daves, my friend,
Their list would never end
A common tag for many males, today
Which ones you choose to cheer,
Or brand a horses rear,
It's up to you, the reader, who will say
La la la la la la
La la la la la la

What about Below Average Dave? Can't believe you forgot to add him to this list.
Matthias - October 25, 2011 - Report this comment
Oops! Nevermind, I must have missed him in your great parody of Daves. Well done. Sorry about that mix-up. Haha
David Copper - October 25, 2011 - Report this comment
Well done Sir- from a true Dave!

I have a nephew named David, he chooses to go by his middle name instead. A nice tribute to all the Dave's out there, good, and (Chapman) evil. By the way, wasn't his first name Mark?
AFW - October 25, 2011 - Report this comment
Thanks, all...and yes, Patrick...but his middle name was David...

Very entertaining list and (at least) 2 terrible puns (Spade and Goliath), but AFW should "Goliath" in a corner for misspelling the name of the singer of TOS. But interestingly, of the 10 AIR parodies of TOS, 5 are (correctly) attributed to Mary Hopkin and 5 to Mary Hopkins.

Thanks, John...and yes, I guess I'm always sticking my "S" in where it doesn't belong;;"S-pecially" in this case where it should beshort

I'll cheer Dave Gilmour for discovering Kate Bush and brand David Cameron a horse's rear for what he's done to the poor and unemployed in the UK!

I just popped in to make sure you put in Below Average. Satisfied, 555, even if Lee Roth didnt make it to the party.
AFW - October 26, 2011 - Report this comment
Thanks, pickle...guess you have your own daves and Davids there..and thanks, Agrimorfee...yeah, kind a' hard to get all the daves in..
