The Lyrics

Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
Some Sesame Street songs stirred young Agrimorfee
To think of writing lyrics that were silly and swell
Put in the paper, Algonquin Junior High School*
Helped him to figure his calling in life
And there weren't many like him, an erudite kid
Sure enough, people were smilin' at the work that he did

Now let's all honor Agrimorfee
For the lyrics he's penned
"Learning to Swim"
Looks like all "5's" once again
He took his name from "Amphigory"
Anagram with a spin

He parodied both "Heroes" and "Barber of Seville"
And then Agrimorfee, he wrote the words to "For You A Pill"
He's trained his brain cells and he's energized them
So they'll take lyrics and then satirize them
Like with "Love Ain't No Stranger", and then "Do You Realize"
There's hundreds of entries on his AmIRight page

So give a cheer for Agrimorfee
Expertise without end
"Pile of Bricks"
Looks like all "5's" once again
So let's give thanks for Agrimorfee
Hallelujah, amen!
* Ok, so it was really Algonquin Middle School. If I had written the music I wouldn't have had to take artistic license. :-)

Great tribute to a great parodist! Not very funny but still a generally good song.

Between Carly Carlz and Rex today, I feel so loved it may cause my head to explode. :D
