This was mentioned in Gooney Bird thread so I thought I'd post it. The ABC was done by hand and I have no way to check it so would appreciate it if someone could try it out & see if it sounds OK

TETERBORO TOWER - by Oscar Brand & Jac Holzman

Teterboro Tower this is Piper 2-0-2
I'm turning on my downwind leg, My fabric's come unglued
The stick is burbling in my hand, I think I feel a stall
& a bug's caught in my Pilot, my gauges don't read at all

Now listen Piper 2-0-2, this is Teterboro Tower
I cannot raise the crash crew cause it is their coffee hour
& you're not cleared in the pattern, don't try a landing yet
Just circle for departure while I mooch a cigarette

Help Teterboro Tower, this is Piper 2-0-2
I'm sweating out this landing, I don't know what to do
My superhomer's on the blink, & your voice is fading fast
Please clear my on my final, or this flight may be my last

Now listen Piper 2-0-2, This is Teterboro Tower
I'd like to help you buddy, but I just don't have the power
The F.A.A's your only hope, so if you've time to spare
Just file a form in triplicate & sign the questionaire

Teterboro Tower, this is Piper 2-0-2
I'm in Secaucus Hospital & I owe it all to you
I'm sorry that I cracked her up & messed your pretty field
We'll try it once around again if ever I get healed
