The Lyrics

Lorne Greene keened a song called "Ringo";
Sounded like a dingo.
Lorne Greene could make your ears smart.

Hearing his tuneship surround you
Was much like the sound "moo."
Better in TV part.

Played, Green, the pa of Cartwright crew.
In that role, he got it right
Every Sunday night.

Lorne Greene, each night in my living
Room, in color living,
I'd watch Lorne Green.

Made green-backs with the Cartwright crew
The show ran 400 nights,*
That's a lot of Klieg lights!

Lorne Greene, he was Canadian. . .
Not an Acadian. . .
Ott'wa-born, Greene.

*404 episodes of Bonanza, according to

"Sounded like a dingo"? Lorne Greene ate my bay-beeeee (sounded in crappy Meryl Streep mock-Aussie accent). Good job, JAB.

I also remember Lorne Greene singing a parody to the tune of "Born Free", but it was a self-flattering version, ending with the idea that Greene was a good singer & actor and he got all these perks because "I'm Lorne Greene"! Does anyone remember this?
