The Lyrics

Written from a lyric sheet for the Artistry comp.
His puns will brighten my day today (his puns are fine)
He acts like a goon when he flips his toupee
(We ring people's doorbells then run away)
He says (laughter) laughter makes everything right
(I can't wait) I can't wait 'til we reunite, yeah
One day he tie-dyed his wife's pony pastel-y
'Cause his (weird life) life's motto is "just horse around"
(And that makes sense to me)
It's just my crazy uncle (ha ha ha!)
And his slingshot's a garter (ha ha!)

Crazy uncle (ha ha ha!)
Always got to make a (ha ha ha!) jest, oh yeah
He's wacky and offbeat
With such esprit, ooh la!
He is a comic inspiration to me
G'yeah, now - (clever, clever) He went to church in a dress
(clever, clever) And then again, just to redress it
Yep, he is always acting like a clown
And wants to teach me, 'cause he (oh my)
He's got to pass along his jester's crown
(his successor is me), he-yeah!
Love my crazy uncle (ha ha ha!)
He says, "Be like a blind man, see?" (ha ha!) zowie!
Crazy uncle (ha ha ha!)
He calls me "mini me" (ha ha ha!) now

He says his wife (sweet wife) has said his antics wear her down
(she said "it's pranks or me")
So he said: "crazy uncle's (ha ha!) who you wed -
Our union (concluded) Yeah."

Crazy uncle (ha ha!) baby, that's who he is
Crazy uncle (ha ha ha!) now, yeah!
Crazy uncle (ha ha ha!)

Drew banjos on his knees (ha ha!) now

You had me at the title switch, especially because my nieces no doubt view me this way. ;-D

Your uncle sounds like a fun guy to fool around with and I'm glad that your his jester in training. If you're as crazy as we all know you are your uncle has to be one "special" man.

(Artistry) Interesting parody, a bit tricky to pace due to Marley's style of speech, but I highly doubt that you would make any grave pacing errors. Highly amusing, and it reminded me that I'm soon to be an uncle myself. Oh dear. 555!
