The Lyrics

This may be ancient history to some...but I think it's always open season on "Quayle"
UNCANNY DAN

Who could take potato, end it with an, "E" ?
Try to teach a kid to spell it so ridiculously?
Uncanny Dan, oh Uncanny Dan could
Uncanny Dan could, 'cause he nixes common sense
And thinks with brains of wood

Who could perk the news up, make it fun to read?
Like sayin' "If there's oxygen it means that we can breathe"
Uncanny Dan, oh Uncanny Dan could
Uncanny Dan could, 'cause he nixes common sense
And thinks with brains of wood

Ev'ry word he spoke soon became a joke,
Helped the comics find their niches,
Thanks to all the campaign pitches,
Kept the laughin' world in stitches...

Who could make us giggle, shake our heads and grin?
Like when he said he didn't live in the century we're in,
Uncanny Dan, oh Uncanny Dan could
Uncanny Dan could, ' cause he nixes common sense
And talks with brains of wood

Ev'ry word he spoke, soon became a joke,
Helped the comics find their niches,
Thanks to all the campaign pitches,
Kept the laughin world in stitches...

Who could be the Vice Prez to win for "Mister Strange"?
'Sayin' "Freedom's irreversible, but all of that could change"
Uncanny Dan, oh Uncanny Dan could
Uncanny Dan could, 'cause he nixes common sense
And thinks with brains of wood
