Give it up for Mike Meehan, one of the guys from my baseball chat group. He's also a Loyal Little and this is his first non-baseball jingle. It's nice to have folks providing you with great material. Thanks Mike!

He takes freebies from the littles
He stands at sink to drink his wine
He calls Michael when it rains
He hates the f*cking purple line

he won’t da-di-da-di-dive
with a spear gun in his hand
he don’t want to die-die-die
The old man we call Satchmo

He can name you all the Rascals
He’s got a booth down at the Palm
He thinks that chimps turn into monkeys
What a f*cking moron

I hope he doesn’t die die
when the show goes away
He better not die-die-die
The old man who sells windows

He’s got a crush on Wendy Reiger
And Wilbon’s not surprised
He puts his hands on the window
To see if it’s cold outside

We’ll say good bye bye
when the show is off again
Please don’t die die die
The old man who sells windows
The old man we call Satchmo

great sign for a jingle: after it's over do you press listen immediately? do you do it a third time? yes, i did.
