The Lyrics

I'm Mr. X but I am using the name Mr. Hyde from now on in my parodies. The Myrds again recorded a single this time with Chris Mountainman On Bass and Mike Parke on Drums and Percussion. McHinn does lead guitar while Height does rhythm guitar.
Old George Carlin he wore a ponytail
People everywhere would laugh at his jokes
Everyone cared to take any time to find out
What he was all about, laughing kept them in

Children laughed and played and they didn't know his name
They could tell when he was coming just the same
Walking slow with his friend by his side
Then he sighed, then he died

(Guitar Solo and Strings)

Magic words from him would charm some childrenīs ears
But they laughed at him when he told his famous jokes
All in vain was no game for he'd lost an old friend
in the end, in the end

Old George he wore a ponytail
People everywhere would laugh at his joke
Everyone cared to take any time to find out
What he was all about, laughing kept them in

The Myrds again got a single, a minor hit making it to number twenty-six with B-side Lady Enemy

Dr. Byrds would be proud. Are you in a Byrds revival band? That would be very cool. Old John Robertson's a fairly obscure song, even for Byrds' fans, but it's also one of their tastiest country efforts. I put in my request for a "Mae Jean Goes To Hollywood" parody.
