The Lyrics

I'm giving away the secret of my whole life of writing. Here it is.
This mag I've read since I was a boy
It's brought me laughs, and brought me joy
I'm telling you, it's taught me lots
When they point out flaws in movie plots
Cunning, cunning
Fold the back page, all right

It's been to me quite a teaching tool
Learned more from it than from my school
I'm telling you it's helped my brain
Made much more sense, than life insane

Well the face says what-me-worry?
Right on every single mag
As I sit there on the crapper
And take in every gag

I'm readin' Mad, It's Mad -dumb on
(Mad, Mad silly, silly Mad)
It's always Mad, it's Mad, you know it
(Mad, Mad silly, silly Mad)
I'm readin' Mad, it's Mad, dumb on you know
(Mad, Mad silly, silly Mad)
And the whole world needed giggles back then
And it needs some once again----read Mad

I've seen this world for many years
I've tried to run, tried to drown in beers
Our leaders lie, and we got the proof
Just open up my favorite spoof
It once was CHEAP!- Just fifteen cents
Now costs much more, but still makes sense

Well the face says what-me-worry?
It's the one of Alfred E.
Even reading the back issues
It's hard to hold my pee

I'm readin' Mad, It's Mad -dumb on
(Mad, Mad silly, silly Mad)
It's always Mad, it's Mad, you know it
(Mad, Mad silly, silly Mad)
I'm readin' Mad, it's Mad, dumb on you know
(Mad, Mad silly, silly Mad)
And the whole world needed giggles back then
And it needs some once again----read Mad

It's got politics and hist'ry
All the folks that made a splash
It's available on CD
All fifty years of trash

I'm readin' Mad, It's Mad -dumb on
(Mad, Mad silly, silly Mad)
It's always Mad, it's Mad, you know it
(Mad, Mad silly, silly Mad)
I'm readin' Mad, it's Mad, dumb on you know
(Mad, Mad silly, silly Mad)

Hee Hee Hoo!
(And the whole word needs some laughter right now let me tell you once again!)

I'm readin' Mad, It's Mad -dumb on
(Stan Hart and Dick Bartolo)
It's always Mad, it's Mad, you know it
(Dave Berg- Angelo Torres)
I'm readin' Mad, it's Mad, dumb on you know
(Paul Coker-songman Frank Jacobs)
I'm readin' Mad, It's Mad -dumb on
(Mort Drucker, Al Jaffe, Bill Gaines)
It's always Mad, it's Mad, you know it
(Small print, S. Aragones)
I'm readin' Mad, it's Mad, dumb on you know
(Jack Davis, Don Martin, Woodbridge)
And the whole world needed giggles back then
And it needs some once again
Read Mad!
New song on Soundclick---Claude and RAD- together at least!

Its a shame how Bad Mad has gotten in recent years
Mari D - April 10, 2004 - Report this comment
I feel nostalgic for the old Mad too, Billy! And now they have ads, which are especially annoying. I still think, sometimes, that they're joke ads.

The ads in Mad are bad and I'm so sad! Don't think they've got it!

Mad didn't jump the shark when bill Gaines died, but it sure did when they started advertising and went to color. (I'm sure they went to color because of the ads)
