The Lyrics

No, Old Chucky B. didn't kick the stage dust....He's around 85 and about Gonged out, but I just felt he deserves a Still-Living tribute..
When my flat screen now glows - on old game shows
And someone makes a joke that is wise
From the laughs and applause
,I recall what fun it was
And more and more do I realize...that

We loved Barris on The Gong Show
Crazy hat, big grin and cane
We loved Barris and his humor
All the gimmicks
We loved Barris, Baby Boomer
Corny whim mix...

We loved Barris - funny antics,
He could snap sharp wit so fast
We loved Barris,
In his heyday, he was charis-
matic, and we had a blast..

We loved Barris, and his novel
Claims he spied for CIA
We loved Barris, is it true,
Or did he snare us
And fool us all his way

We loved Barris, fun, his show meant
More than just those cheesy lines
We loved Barris,
Entertainment, he'd not spare us
Those were the great old times

They were some great old times

Expertly done, but topic is trivial and "charismatic" doesn't track. 455. This OS was done over a year ago.

And my diagnosis, also. This is one of the worst I've seen all year. Chucky should've gonged this right out of the gate. Yuck!!

Thanks, appreciate your vote and comment...Al? is this you? Trivial?...perhaps, but you know what they say, there's nothing new under the sun, just different ways of presenting it...I know using charismatic here adds a couple extra syllables, but it still seems to flow well when you sing it....about the other song being done before, I wasn't under the impression that an original song could only to be used one time by one parodist...if that's the case, myself, as well as almost every other writer on here has been breaking that rule all over the place...thanks, again, just wish you'd use the name you submit with, if you're a regular here.

AFW: First of all, I think you're easily in the top 10, or maybe top 5, parodists around here. I'm an infrequent contributor under my own handle. I'm not a troll or Al. If I'm disappointed in a parody and have something negative to say, I'm embarrassed to use my author name. Anyway, 455 isn't bad at all. By the way, I gave the address to Al's parody because I wanted to show how rarely the OS is used, not how often. I wasn't clear on that point. That parody stuck in my mind because it was funny and irreverent. Also, I Love Paris is one of the few originals used here that I didn't have to learn from Youtube. That's what you get for being 83.
