Lyrics

One good thing to come out of Tony's absents today was the incredibly talented KJ Ohmstad graciously agreed to sing on my just-in-time jingle. Predictably, she hit it out of the park. Thanks KJ!

He waited 'til nine forty one
I don't know why Tone didn't come
He don’t call in sick as a rule of thumb
I don't know why Tone didn't come
I don't know why Tone didn't come

When I heard Nigel’s voice on air
Wondered why Tony wasn’t there
Instead yakking on the mic
Warning bicyclists to do wear white

Kornheiser was bedridden
But he’ll be back boiling eggs
‘For you know it

Something made Tone reassess
So all day he convalesced
From meat cancer he won’t succumb
I don't know why Tone didn't come
I don't know why Tone didn't come
I don't know why Tone didn't come

Nice one, Anita! I love this song and was actually writing lyrics of my own (that weren't going anywhere) when Steve asked me to do this one. So, thanks for thinking of me, Steve! And thanks to you 3 for the kind words too.

This is excellent all around, and even more impressive with the quick turn around. Kj smooth as butter. Anita taking shots at all of us non-same-day listening Littles! (And really making me laugh.)
