Original Song Title:
Parody Song Title:
After twenty-nine long years of workin'
In this shop with Johnny on the radio
Today when that old buzzer sounds
I'll check in all my gear and I'll retire ...
The superintendent just walked by and said
They'd planned to have my little get together ...
Then he said that in my honor,
my foreman would sing the "Ring of Fire. "
I've heard Johnny in my dreams at night
And woke up to the Folsom Prison Blues ...
Then I'd eat my lunch in haste
while the dusty radio blared "A Boy Named Sue."
And if it plays "The Legend of John Henry's Hammer"
while we are on break
then you might as well sit and relax
'cause you know the line will start five minutes late.
But today they'll gather 'round me
Like I've seen 'em do when anyone retires
And they'll tell me from now on
I'm free to listen to whatever I desire ...
They'll present me with that gold-electroplated watch
They give at times like this ...
But there's one thing they're not countin' on
Today's the day I give old Johnny his.
Now, please don't get me wrong,
I like what Johnny's contributed to society....
As you can see, I'm wearing black,
and I've got half his songs on mp3's.
But some people are too old to sing,
in a few hours I'm gonna that point across
With a right hand full of microphone
'Cause tonight I show Bruce Springsteen who's the boss!
Hmmmm! What time is it? Seven-thirty?
Hey, Johnny? Johnny??? Ha ha ha ha!
