The Lyrics

I decided to pull a John Barry and write five quick parodies on the same song. afterwards I looked them up and saw Alvin Rhodes had already done this one. Kudos to him for getting there first. but I hate to break up my set.
Erich Weiss, Erich Weiss
Squeeze him someplace that's teeny
There's no doubt, he'll get out
For he's Harry Houdini

Boxed and handcuffed, dumped in a lake
With no pry or lever
Erich Weiss, Erich Weiss
He'll escape cause he's clever

No straight jacket will hold him long
Jailbird? Hardly ever!
Erich Weiss, Erich Weiss
Showman, Artist forever!

This is the right one of the three with this title. I screwed up the other two. Man, getting old is a bitch.

Getting old is not a b!tch,it is a privilege reserved for the healthy,the wealthy,the lucky,and the wise. Being dead however,is the ultimate b!tch. 555!

Wow! I'm an eponym. As I kid I was fascinated by Houdini; nice to see him making it to amiright.

As a kid,I was fascinated by Who-dini (The rap group),now I'm fascinated by Paul Dini (animator and creator of the comic book series,"Jingle Belle"). nothing relevant here,I just like names ending in, "Dini" !

If this is considered good..then the man himself must be bursting to get out and strangle the author. Give the job to an average 16 yr old girl who feels she can least she'll use words that suit..pathetic and gormless attempt. go back to selling cars!! No wonder he died...probably of embarassment if he'd read that.
