Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

So that coyote sure was real surprised
You got the best of him and down he flies
You ran off before he could even blink
The one mistake he made was Acme Inc.
Why do you beep?
Why do you beep beep twice?

You live on plains and are a tasty thing
Jump when that Wiley beast has set a "sting"
The same old gag is like a well used riff
For now you're gone and he is down the cliff
Why do you beep?
Why do you beep beep twice?

In the real world he'd face certain dooms
So it's a good thing you are both cartoons
The sound you make took Mel a single take
And fifty times it's used in films they make
Why do you beep?
Why do you beep beep twice?

The Road Runner? He's got real fast legs but we're lookin' at his (beep)!

Loved that ep where the little boys watching the Road Runner cartoon wonder aloud why the coyote chased the R.R., and Wiley C. pauses the chase to give a ponderous lecture (complete with illustrated chart) on the improbable physiology of the tastebuds of coyotes. Watching this as a child, I used to believe roadrunners would taste like sponge cake, beef brisket, and dry martinis. :) The Acme of parody writers is Rick Duncan. 555

For a minute I thought "beep" meant passing gas. Good one about the old Looney Tunes.
