The Ballad of Tom Long
BlueBell is a-buzzing with this tight mayoral race
And the Belles, they still run this town with dignity and grace.To have a fateful run-in with that armadillo, Randy.
And my girl Wanda serves the meals and doles out salt and pepper,
But I’m still stuck on the other week, when I almost was a leper.
No, seriously, was I supposed to move on and forget?
Despite my OK from the doc I went and saw a vet
And he said “Tom, you are not sick, at most you have a cough.”
But I could not rest easy – what if my legs fell off??
When you are close to death as I, you reevaluate
I’m now as sure as ever that it’s Wanda I should date.
And Zoe, I am over you, my flame for you is out.
Wanda is the one for me, there’s hardly any doubt.
It’s hard to bring myself to care about this election anymore.
When I have come so very close to knocking on death’s door.
But I know what’s important now so I guess it’s kind of handy
