The Lyrics

hello, everyone this is your action news reporter, with all the news that is the news of every nation.. on scene here at the fish market.. there seems to have been some disturbance here,, 'scuze me sir did you see what happened??
"yeah, ah diyd.. I was standin over there by the coliseum and there he comes,,
runnin through the vines and the grape plants.. ugly as a dodo.. I yelled
"DON'T LOOK ETHEL!.. but it was too late.. he'd already doubled down

here he comes
looka day looka dat
there he goes
looka dat looka dat
he's got a honkin big nose

oh yes they call him the greek
place your bets every week
he's just as proud as he can be, gives the odds out to me
I bet a hundred it's neat
oh yes they call him the greek
analysis is unique
and I bet you have found, if there's a whisper around
he's got a man on the beat

SPOKEN" well this is your action news reporter again, here at the football field
pardon me sir did you se ehat happened?
"yeah, ah diyd., I was standin thar with ethel, and we'is watchin the football practice.. and then here he comes..out of the huddle... eyes lahk two big melons.. like he's a alien or somethin.. I yelled "make book ethel"
but it was too late, she's already put a hunnert dollars on these chumps on sunday...

oh yes they call him the greek
place your bets every week
he's just as proud as he can be, gives the odds out to me
I bet a hundred it's neat
oh yes they call him the greek
analysis is unique
and I bet you have found, if there's a whisper around
he's got a man on the beat

The Streak should never be forgotten. Great job.

Oh, I remember The Greek. He loved the Raiders, what a geek. He made some racist remark, his brain stuck in the dark, and this parody's weak. You missed a verse, Malcolm... and the third verse was set at a sporting event! "The basketball playoff!"
