The Lyrics

Looks like Dick Button has popped up in two of my last three parodies. After more than 40 years behind a microphone, I think he deserves a parody of his very own. This is my tribute to the venerable Dick Button, commentator of commentators. Long may Dick wave.
With a folksy demeanor and a voice you can trust
He leaves his colleagues choking on his dust

Hapless skaters with programs weak
Quake with fear as he begins to speak

He sometimes says things that don't make any sense
But he's always forgiven by his long-term audience

Yo, ho! He'll tell you all he knows
Go, go Dick Button! Whoo-oo-oo-oo
You, ho! Tell us when they blow
Go, go Dick Button! Whoo-oo-oo-oo

(Dick Button, Dick Button, Dick Button, Dick Button...)
Flutzing is illegal
Flutzing is illegal
She's the Anna Karenina of skating - beautiful, gentle and headed for the train station
Look at that slash-and-burn vitality!
Look at that slash-and-burn vitality!

Yo, ho! He'll tell you all he knows
Go, go Dick Button! Whoo-oo-oo-oo
Yo, ho! Tell us when they blow
Go, go Dick Button! Whoo-oo-oo-oo

Every athlete and figure-skate fan
Knows Button is Indispensible Man
Dick Button!

Every athlete and figure-skate fan
Knows Button is Indispensible Man
Dick Button!

Every athlete and figure-skate fan
Knows Button is Indispensible Man
Dick Button!

Great! I have learned a lot from his commentary. Go, go Dick Button!

Hmmm...I'm thinking I don't follow figure skating closely enough to fully get this (but love the original song, so I had to look)

Thanks! Jeff, you don't know what you're missing. Laurie - if not for Dick, I wouldn't know dick about skating myself. ;)

Figure skating is not a sport. If I'm gonna see Americans, Canadians and Russians on ice, they better have sticks in their hands. Face it, if Tonya Harding had hit Nancy Kerrigan on the knee with a hockey stick, she would've gotten a two-minute penalty, and that would be it. Lockout's a lemon and I want my hockey back!

Figure skating is too a sport, Michael! However, I'm not going to risk rousing the ire of a man suffering from hockey withdrawl (at least not without padding and a goalie mask), so I won't argue the point with you. For what it's worth, I feel your pain - I'm also a hockey fan.
