The Lyrics

By the end of 2019, This fellow talented man will throw in the towel of the radio industry after 25 years and retire.
[[1st Verse:]]
I probably could hear more of him, yes
But not too much
Cause I know his rocket to retirement yes
So soon
His contract is expiring soon
Memories that will cherish us
Whoa I hope that I can catch him now
For one last time
Ohhhhhhh, one last time

[[Chorus:]]
Whooooooa, Tom
Joyner's retiring soon
Twenty-five years came very swift
And I sure do will miss all his talent
I will also not forget those great dandy jokes

[[2nd Verse:]]
Whooooa, He entertains me each week morning
And so does Huggy Lowdown as well
Sybil and J. Anthony are so best to none
Best to none
Well Tom shared so many laughs
And he too was so very strict
Oh, yes when it comes to health problems
So fun, so great, so cool, baby

[[Chorus:]]

Oooooooh, ooooooooh
Oooooooooh, oooooooooh
Ooooooooh, oooooooooooh
Oooooooooh

[[3rd Verse:]]
Whoooooah
Tom Joyner's counting down the seconds
Til his rocket
Takes off to his rocking chair
The great planet
Planet Retirement

[[Chorus:]]

[[Instrumental Break:]]

Tom, (Tom baby)
Tom Joyner's blasting off
(Yes he's about to blast off)
(Tom, Tom)
(Yes he's about to blast off)
Tom, (Tom baby)
Joyner's retiring!
(Yes he will do this for real)
Tom, Tom
(Yes, he will do this for real)
Tom (Tom baby)
It will be history!
(Joyner's rocket is waiting)
Tom, Tom
(Joyner's rocket is waiting)
Tom, (Tom baby)

I wrote this parody because Tom Joyner used to be a part of The Commodores, along with Lionel Ritchie.
