OP. My 1st try

Hello to The Limericist,
This is a song parody rather than a limerick, but I think due to its salacious content, it deserves a debut in your excellent blog. I hope you agree.

It has been several decades since Dr. Seuss introduced The Grinch as the best Christmas villain since Ebenezer Scrooge. But the news events of 2011 may have spawned a new candidate for Xmas Expat. With due attribution to Haven Gillespie and J. Fred Coots for their original version, let’s sing:

You’d better watch out,
You’d better not squeal,
You’d better not doubt.
I tell you, he’s real:
Sandusky is coming to town.

He’s making a list
Of boys whom he’s found
Will shower with him
While “horsing around.”
Sandusky is coming to town.

He’ll seize you when you’re sleeping,
He’ll charm you with his guile,
He’ll know you in the biblical sense
If you “walk The Second Mile.”

You’d best be a snitch;
Report, be pro-law.
That son-of-a-bitch,
He brought down JoePa!

Santa Claus is knowing
That Jerry’s crimes are growing.
For all the seeds he’s sowing,
And boys whom he’s been blowing,
Sandusky is going to--------GO DOWN!!!


* Coda lines 2-3-4 employ a one syllable pick-up to the tune: Fa mi sol do mi re fa.
Line 5 starts on the beat and is sung: Mi sol do mi re fa re-------re(9) do(8).

  1. I DO agree, Okey! If it's OK, I'm prepending "OP" for 'Other People's' (posts) to your title, but without a number since it isn't a limerick. Do you write limericks? If so, please add to the fun!
