The Lyrics

ma goose tales are lovely
and aesop's tales are fun
really hard to beat that ol' walt disney
he's a tale tellin' son of a gun
but i kid them some...with jokes and puns
every story that i come across
and i piece parodies all together at night
but on certain ones i'm at a loss...just because
and i say

well, i'll rag on mother goose tales
i'll upset...aesop on whims
and i'll pull the rug on ol' walt disney
but i won't mess around with grimm's

well, i've written 'bout a cricket and a wooden boy
and i've written bout ol' simon, dim
bambi jokes i've employed...lots of fables destroyed
and i've worn poor snow white thin
i've written 'bout the pumpkins peter piper eats
and i've twisted cinderella facts
took on the speedy bunny and his tortoise buddy
but some stories never get the ax
i just don't have the knack, jack...doncha know

but i will rag on mother goose tales
i'll upset...aesop on whims
and i'll pull the rug on ol' walt disney
but i won't mess around with grimm's

ribbed alice for eatin' those mushrooms
and i've taken on little bo peep
yeah, even dumbo's been done
also br'er fox and his buddies
have been ridiculed quite complete
yeah, most fairy tales i've truly wasted
and i'm sure i'll write a couple more
but you'd better believe i shy away from certain stories
because i'm sure i'd do 'em poor

but i will rag on mother goose tales
i'll upset...aesop on whims
and i'll pull the rug on ol' walt disney
but i won't mess around with grimm's

yeah, i won't mess with that
it might come out flat
i know that might sound strange to you
but there's just some things that i will never do

but i will rag on mother goose tales
i'll upset...aesop on whims
and i'll pull the rug on ol' walt disney
but i won't mess around with grimm's

...And Alvin stayed in the castle with the King and Queen, and told his stories to all the little children of the kingdom. And they lived happily ever after.
