Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Written by request for 40th surprise birthday party of Ron Hasse, Los Angeles Times Director of Sales & Marketing, based on information provided, & sung by all attendees.
He left the Midwest town of Chicago
to find the Valley of- San Fernando.

WHY CAN'T WE- BE RON? WHY CAN'T WE- BE RON?
WHY CAN'T WE- BE RON? WHY CAN'T WE- BE RON?

He found himself three lovely kids and a wife.
Starts selling papers, saying, "This is the life!"

CHORUS

He worked his way up through the Daily- News.
Up near the top, he wasn't singing no blues.

CHORUS

Jack Klunder says, "Hey, Ron, The LA- Times
could use a man with your ambition and drive".

CHORUS

Now at The Times, he's known as "Big Boss- Mon".
I wonder where he stole the talent all from.

CHORUS

Ron's kind of shy, not one for putting on airs.
Just don't go dissin' his Chicago- Bears.

CHORUS

Probably had more meaning to the people it was written for
