The Lyrics

A tribute to Kristof thanks to an idea by Philbo...
The Boy From Wagga Wagga

Always best at this endeavor
The boy from Wagga Wagga is clever
Those words he’s writing make those I’m writing seem…blah

Always kind…he’s never boastin’
Celebrities he’s always roastin’
The “comps” he’s winnin’…while we all grin an’ say…ahhh

Sometimes in London so sadly
He longs for the Murrumbidgee
Soon, though, he starts writing madly
It’s a wonder he never gets sick
Forced to eat “bangers” and “spotted dick”

Caustic, dry…yet sweet as honey
The boy from Wagga Wagga is funny
His sense of humor and ours…just seem to connect
(it’s) The “Wagga Effect”… “The Wagga Effect”…

Nice quick turnaround on this, IB.

OMG! Brilliant!!! Loved this, IB; it almost made me homesick...and it looks like you've done your research! (For those not up on their Wagga Wagga facts...Murrumbidgee is the river running through my hometown, and the "Wagga Effect" is used to explain the ridiculously high number of renowned sportspersons who hail from my part of the world, compared to the fairly paltry population.)
How could I not give this the highest of 5s?

p.s. I hate spotted dick....;-)

Lord ~IB~, This is a litttle cabo-wabo, too! Five's for you, Sir!

Lord Kristof, ~The Jolly Knight o'Scotts~ he be. . . . Oh, how the Lassies want to lift the "Kilt of Robertson" just to see! He owns a handsome face, & a Celtic twinkle in his eye, but it is his words that make the Ladies outcry!

Thanks for all the comments on this.

Agri...I'm only as "Aussie" as google lets me be.

Thanks McKludge, alvin Jack and Stan.

Kristof...I'm glad you liked it and thanks for explaining the "local" references.

LLC...The Lassies may succeed in the liftin' of the sacred kilt, but just so you know...that was not the "spotted dick" I was talking about.

Fine tribute to a fine author. Parody is short and sweet but says it all. Yep this describes Kristof well. Nice work.

Cute little tribute, not familiar with Wagga, Wagga but you got me intrigued

Though I've read a few parodies of this OS, I think today is the first time I've heard it. Great tribute to a great writer.

(ABC) another great assortment of leftfield Aussie pickups IB, like spotted dick, etc. very droll and deft use of rhymes and humour as usual - bit short but that's the OS - 555

(ABC) I like tributes. Nice references. Hilarious line at the first (...blah), but then got a little anemic. You messed up the rhythm on the "spotted dick" line: too many syllables. Pretty good job overall. 5-4-4.

(ABC) A nice tribute song, I'm also not familiar with the writer, but I enjoyed the song
