The Lyrics

More than a year ago, I made the Las Vegas scene,
Had a six digit income, rode in limousines.
Things just aren't the same no more, guess I ran out of steam.
Oy vay, I'm back in the Catskills again!

Flew in on a Lear jet, I'm flyin' out economy,
My bags are packed, I'm headin' home to New Joisey.
They want toilet humor, I won't tell bathroom jokes.
Oy vay, I'm back in the Catskills again!

I thought I had impressed the man on the TV show,
Somehow they replaced me with someone from some FOX show.
Came to Burbank, a one night stand - oy, did I lay an egg!
Oy vay, I'm back in the Catskills again!

Now I gotta make a living along the Borscht Belt stretch -
One night stands at the local Hadassah where ladies sit and kvetch.
I'm right back to where I was, livin' from day to day,
Oy vay, I'm back in the Catskills again.
Oy vay, I'm not even Jewish, oh, no!
Tzena, tzena, tzena, tzena, tzena.......

Liked this, TC...had to dig out my CCR CD as I couldn't remember the tune (555). By the way, if I see you rhyme a word with the same word (show & show), I'll kick your a** ;-)....Kristof

This wasn't meant to be Cole Porter sophistication.

Tom Jones impersonators, beware! There's a new guy on the scene, and he's singing this: I WAS, I WAS, I WAS!!!!
