The Self-Righteous Brothers', ""Rock & Roll Heaven" Parody (unknown)"
The Lyrics:
This song came out in the mid-70's after the death of "Mama" Cass. It was made by an American comedy group (possibly Flo & Eddie, Firesign Theatre or The Credibility Gap), under the psuedonym "The Self-Righteous Brothers", not to be confused with the Australian group of the same name. Partial lyrics follow: She made her own kind of sandwich she used her own kind of bread She sat her own kind of table And now, she's her own kind of dead There's Janis and there's Otis And Ritchie Valens, he's dead too. There's Martin, John & Bobby And the late, great Lash Larue Does anyone know of this song? I haven't heard it in over 30 years.
Who They Mention:
"Mama" Cass Eliott, Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, Ritchie Valens, Martin Luther King, John & Robert Kennedy, Lash Larue
