-> "Ribber's Intros"
Original Song Title:
"Second Hand Rose" (MP3)
Parody Song Title:
There's an amiwriter - who is one sly dog.
He begins each biter - with a long prologue.
Carefully he'll lay out - background for each spoof,
Then his songs will play out. Brother, what a goof!
'Though his work is sometimes glib and smart,
His prefaces are often the best part.
Before you read any song - he gives you prose.
We always see long - Ribber intros.
There's no author from Maine to Saint Lucia
Who gives you more info and minutia.
Quirks in the rhyme and variations in time?
He warns you so you'll know how each lines goes.
He explains his ref'rences so you'll get each joke.
Why's he do this? He is one considerate bloke.
Only Bozos - will aim one-bombs and low blows
At Ribber's long intros.
Although his style has evolved, many faults solved -
Ribber's long forewords are still quite involved.
It's not hard to see how his brain functions
When you read his lengthy introductions.
After "pre-wit" - he fin'lly gets on with it.
He'd rather be the M.C. than the shows.
Just as T.T. is the king of thoughtful footnotes
Prefaces are where that O.M.R. gets their goats.
How apropos!* He puts his ducks in their rows.
It's Ribber's long intros.
That's how the story goes.
