The Lyrics

Same topic that Phil A. used yesterday, but with a different original. London also hosted the Olympics in 1948.
I saw Olympic organizers talking up a storm
Trying best they could to narrow it down
They were meeting in a place called Singapore
Gonna give the big games to London town

Woo Hoo! 'Lympics in London
Cheer-yo!
Woo Hoo! 'Lympics in London
Cheer-yo!

You can see them coming 'round in twenty-twelve
Get our land ready then
Little old lady first saw them back in forty-eight
They're back in London again

Woo Hoo! 'Lympics in London
Cheer-yo!
Woo Hoo! 'Lympics in London
Cheer-yo!

[guitar solo by guest musician Tony Blair]

Give the ladies and the gents a soccer field in Kent
Watch them out in Kensington or Mayfair
Got a venue just for some, it's Wembley Stadium
I hope I'm a spectator

Woo Hoo! 'Lympics in London
Cheer-yo!
Woo Hoo! 'Lympics in London
Cheer-yo!

Well, I saw Dick Cheney walking with the Queen
Watching Olympics in London
I saw Dick Cheney's old boss walking with the Queen
Watching Olympics in London
I saw Prince Charles drinking a pint down at the local pub
Stepped out with Camilla

Woo Hoo! 'Lympics in London
Pour ale
Woo Hoo! 'Lympics in London

It's a good thing Dick Cheney's old boss was just walking with the Queen. I doubt he could talk to her without a teleprompter....555

Pretty good, but I had to dock you a point for not knowing that the first London Olympics were in 1908. It featured a marathon where Italian runner Dorando Pietri collapsed just before the finish line, and officials, including Sherlock Holmes creator Arthur Conan Doyle, picked him up. He was first declared the winner, then disqualified in favor of the second-place finisher, John Hayes, a store clerk at Bloomingdale's in New York. Johnny: Not only has Charles' hair NEVER been perfect, but Camilla's less so. And -- you'll appreciate this -- Dorando fell, and he couldn't get it up. Rick C: By 2012, we'll have a real President to walk with the Queen (assuming, at 86, she can still walk). As for Cheney's boss, well, as LBJ said of Jerry Ford (before Ford fell down the AF1 steps at Salzburg), he can't walk and chew gum at the same time. The Queen can -- but why would she chew gum?

JD - You mean Charles will still have hair by then? RC - I think that Chaney's old boss could walk with the queen. Just don't ask him to ride a bike. MP - If her mum was any indication, the Queen will still be walking in 2012, and Charles will still be waiting for his turn on the throne.

Today was certainly a sobering day in London, but I enjoyed this light-hearted look at yesterday's announcement.
