Stacy Looking for Parodies (5) RE: Looking for Parodies 28 Aug 98


Funny you should ask, Tony...

Tomorrow at a county-wide training for all library staff, I'm going to be singing a parady I wrote for our retiring library courrier driver. Jean is a well-liked woman known to all the library staff in the county... she shleps books around to all the county libraries five days a week. She's moving over the Cascade Mountains, so this is sung to the tune of "She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain":

She'll be comin' to your library when she comes
She'll be comin' to your library when she comes
She's haulin' box after box in color-coordinated hat and socks
She'll be comin' to your library when she comes.

She'll be drivin' a great, big white van when she comes
She sings along to the radio, sometimes just hums
She changes the oil, rotates a tireShe'll be drivin' a well-maintained van when she comes.

Then y'all go out and greet her when she comes
She knows everybody in all the libraries when she comes
Julie, Jen, Jan, Judy and Suz she knows from Bandon, not from Coos
in North Bend she knows Joe and Mary and the head librarian's assistant Gary
she knows Krista from Dora and Joanie from Powers that's two long drives she's gone for hours
Well, Nadine and Deirdre really care, up in Lakeside Jean has her very own chair
She knows everybody in all the libraries when she comes.

The next time you do an interlibrary loan
You say "Yes" to our FAX or call us up on the phone
Well, a property stamp would help Jean know where your in-transit book should go
When it's time for your book to come back to home sweet home.

She'll be goin' over the mountain pretty soon
Then I won't see her every morning and late afternoon
Today let's show Jean how much we'll miss herThat there brings us to the end of this here tune.

I hope she likes it.

The point of my post being that if even I can come up with words to creat a parody, anyone can!!!

Stacy
