The Lyrics

I strolled in my living room
And received an awful scare
Resting there was Ewell Gibbons
In my favorite easy chair
All his clothes were moldy rotten
Roots and dirt were in his hair
As I gathered my composure
I asked Ewell, "Why are you there?"
He said, "Goldenrod makes good tea.."
Fetch a pot, let's make some, could we?"
I got angry, and lunged for him
But, just grabbed an empty chair
No Ewell Gibbons, Ewell Gibbons
Ewell Gibbons turned to air
If I live to be a hundred,
I will never know from where
Came old cold dead, Ewell Gibbons
Ewell Gibbons, in my chair

Very clever title and parody, but why did you attribute the song to "Traditional?" The words and music were the work of Jack Segal and Evelyn Danzig, and the song was recorded by Harry Belafonte, among others.

Thanks for comments, John...I know Belafontehad done it...but I guess by the sound and story..just thought it was an old folk song...

This may well be the most perfect parody of the year! A delight! Smoke some more of that!
