"Baby Is Near; I Get High"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

Baby is near; I get high,
sing a melisma refrain.
You will hear it from this guy;
Lengthily I’ll say her name:

A swell kid; I say so!
She’s a swell kid, I say so!

He makes me feel heavenly;
that’s why, Lord, I sing this song.
Just an inch above 5’ 3”…
at midnight she comes along.


She is walking down the street,
doing her enticing thing.
I feel alright when we meet;
this is more than a slight fling.


A knock on my door she makes;
I’ll open it for my girl.
I see her and get the shakes;
her name I’ll tell the whole world:

Long-wind way to say so!
Eighteen syllables I crow.
