Sing along to the tune from Monty Python’s “He’s a Lumberjack“!
Canadian Mounties should be in full dress uniform.
Pat’s a ‘Lil Bro, and he’s OK
Though 6 foot 2, a Little Brother anyway.
He’s retired now, doesn’t work very hard,
Facebook posts when he cleans his car!
Plays golf throughout the South of Cal;
More posts when he’s eats with his favorite gal!
(Repeat refrain and stanza)
He likes to BBQ, has his own smokehouse,
Criss-crosses the country with his enabling spouse.
On some days he goes a gyming
And drinks Arnold Palmer teas!
(Repeat stanza and refrain)
Home Opening Day; he laments his station
So far away from the Phillies Nation.
When he gets to cheer them at the Dodgers’ place,
He pleasures in annoying the local fan base!
(Repeat etc., etc.)
Yes, Pat’s a special Brother and he’s damn OK,
And we wouldn’t want it any other way!
Instead of sending belated Birthday cards,
I’m a quick-thinking, though defective bard!
(Etc. Etc. …)
Happy Birthday, Pat!
Blue & Gold – Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Orange – Philadelphia Flyers
Red – Philadelphia Phillies
Green – Philadelphia Eagles
Wow, Mike, thanks for the original song-craft. I was quite intrigued by the color scheme, I remember rhyme schemes but not color schemes in poetry.
Nothing is too good for you, little brother!
