The Lyrics

I don't want to say he's funny
That would be too obvious
Even though he's cute and sunny
Like a roly-poly bunny

I don't have to say he's goofy
Even though he certainly is
He acts kind of fey and poofy
And yes, he tends to priss
Though he's rated pretty low
Gotta give it up for Joe

No more putting down Joe Besser
Or saying he's way too fat
I'm tired of hearing that he's lesser
I'm over that

And though he's super sappy
Poked in the eyeballs by Moe
Pushed around by Larry
I still love him so
So unlike the other fans
I think Joe Besser is da man

No more putting down Joe Besser
My affection, it has grown
While Moe may be the aggressor
Joe holds his own


Though he's not the favorite Stooge
My respect for him is huge
Think it's time to take a stand
Cause Joe Besser is da man

No more putting down Joe Besser
Wishin' Curly would return
With his head in a pants presser
My laughs he'll earn

Though he isn't Shemp or Curly
He's an asset to the team
And next to Joe DeRita, surely
He's a Stooge supreme

"Oh, a wise-guy, eh?" 555!!! Sorry, but I never liked Joe as substitute Curly. Shemp, soitenly, but Joe was a no-go from the start!

Thanks for the comments! Yeah, Joe remains a figure of controversy.

Porfle - Thanks for giving Joe his due. Though not one of my top four Stooges I fondly remember him as Stinky the brat kid on Abbott and Costello's TV show and as Julson the building superintendent on The Joey Bishop Show. You nonetheless make a strong case in fine style. ;D
