Original Song Title:
"Sweet Baby James" (MP3)
Parody Song Title:
"Baby James Suite"
A young lonely ranch-hand takes shape in James’ mind
As he slows behind snow-ploughs, quick-naps at a Day’s Inn;
Then he steered through clear traffic, babe-nephew to christen,
And blew past green road-signs to North Carolin’.
While musing o’er hues in his faux-cowboy’s scarf
Far-off plays this tune which we all know as fine,
A choir, disembodied, seems mainly to laugh,
And he ponders, horse-powering across the state line
As the moon starts her upward incline.
Slow-down for road construction,
Day-dreaming beer and old flames.
Surgical blues aren’t the colors to choose -
We’re glad he must have stopped for caffeine:
His fans adore Sweet Baby James.
Now the Great Lakes on Monday were dreary with snow,
And so per my e-mails were D.C. and Boston;
Lord, their Dad’s prone to SAD by account of our offspring,
Most worklife behind me, a few winter months to go.
There’s an earworm that plays when I’m stuck in the sigh-way
A sad song contrived on a drive by “JT”;
A song we’ll escape where old fogeys retire,
Unsaddle that song and its two puzzling themes
When we take to our place near the sea.
So Ciao, frozen char from the Arctic
Hello, fresh flounder and grits;
The earworm is shared by a work-friend named Shaun
Who helps shake me out of my sad fits:
We’re both great fans of Sweet Baby James.
