The Lyrics

I wrote this a decade or so ago when Sally Jessy Raphael was the reigning queen tabloid tv talk shows. Micky Dolenz read this parody once upon a time and sent me a one word, three exclamation point review: "Wonderful!!!" Hope you enjoy it, too.
I see the neighbors down the street
Are telling all on Sally's show
Admitting things about themselves
I didn't really need to know

Another Sally Jessy Monday
Guys who name their underwear
The girls who date the guys
Who look like dames
And they all want to share

See Mrs. Grey she's on today
Because her brother is her groom
And Mr. Green behind the screen
Is being stalked by a cartoon

Another Sally Jessy Monday
Here in TV talkshow land
A guy who claims he built the pyramids
By remote it's Elvis on the lam

Creatures, tortured souls
An heiress on the dole
All tell their tales on my TV
A guy who barks and neighs
At passersby all day
And one who thinks he's greenery

It warms my heart to hear that at least 25% of the Monkees have discovered Melhi. Cool cool cool.
