The Lyrics

To make it work you have to put two syllables in Ly-le
Where's Old Ly-le Lovett ?
He don't sing much anymore
Messed up when he married Julia Roberts,
Mismatched, that's for sure..
He ain't on TV, don't hear his CD's
A has been, out the door..
Where's Old Ly-le Lovett ?
He don't sing much anymore...

He always did a lot of guest shots,
Showed up on those late shows
I wonder where he's disappeared to,
Hibernation, or who knows..
Used to kick back some off beat tunes
Kinda' liked to hear him play
If he ain't in re-hab, he oughta' come around
And not treat his fans this way..

Where's Old Ly-le Lovett ?
He don't sing much anymore
Messed up when he married Julia Roberts,
Mismatched, that's for sure..
He ain't on TV, don't hear his CD's
A has been out the door..
Where's Old Ly-le Lovett ?
He don't sing much anymore

He hails from a town down in Texas
Tall and lanky, kinda' crude
Sports a crazy high pomp haircut
He ain't your average dude..
At one time he toured in Germany,
May be back there, who can say ?
Played in some movies, got a crooked grin,
But he can't be found, today..

(So) Where's Old Ly-le Lovett ?
He ain't seen much anymore
Messed up when he married Julia Roberts
Mismatched, that's for sure..
He's not on TV, don't hear no CD's
A has been, out the door..
Where's Old Ly-le Lovett ?
He don't sing much anymore
........Where's Old Ly-le Lovett ?
He don't sing much anymore

I'm only familiar with one song of his, "Private Conversation". But, I liked that one. As John said, "Good question. Good parody". 555

Great job, AFW. 5''s. There's one Lyle song I like, 'I Married Her Just Because She Looks Like You' that I think would possibly make a good parody. I could never think of anything for it though.

Thanks to John, Alvin, Rick C. and Billy....Maybe that was written about Julia...don't know that one.

Cool song idea, well executed. Lyle's early stuff was funny as hell.

I hooked up with his debut album and bought a few after that.

He's right here:

He didn't write any new material between 1996 and 2002 then moved off of MCA. Guess he got writer's block for awhile...

Oh, BTW 5's
