The Lyrics

Have you ever wondered what it would sound like if CCR had sung Michael Jackson's Ben, the theme from the Willard (1971) sequel, Ben (1972)? Well, thanks to this parody, the two of us need look no more. Happy Halloween!
[Verse 1]
Willard Stiles was a social paraiah
Just as young as age 35
Met some rats and he trained them to murder
Revenge on Ernest Borgnine

[Chorus]
This is my furry friend
My rodent pal, a rat named Ben

Squeak!

[Verse 2]
Ben the rat was all over the headlines
But I liked the name anyway
Plot device that was much too convenient
Have to keep exterms away

[Chorus]
This is my furry friend
My rodent pal, a rat named Ben

Squeak!

[Verse 3]
Don't blame me, I am only 11
Fix my heart and I'll be okay
Puppet time can rival Jim Henson
Got an ear for lovely tunes

[Chorus]
This is my furry friend
My rodent pal, a rat named Ben

Squeak!

(Guitar solo)

[Verse 4]
Wrote a song that will be sung by Michael
His first hit since The Jackson Five
Ben and friends will continue their mischief
Try to do your best to survive

[Chorus]
This is my furry friend
My rodent pal, a rat named Ben

Squeak!

Squeak, squeak, squeak squeak
Squeak, squeak, squeak squeak
Squeak, squeak, squeak squeak
Squeak, squeak, squeak squeak
Squeak, squeak, squeak squeak...

(Fade out)
