One from the ideas bins and RobertSZ - how could I resist ruining another song? It turns out I couldn't!

Oh, I can't take another jingle
About the old man
His dog and his latest rant
You sing, the vocals sound nice
But something isn't quite right
It's set to a song that I used to
Used to like
And now, will ever be

Ruined for life, destroyed a nice pleasure
Ruined for life, it was a very, very, very good song
Ruined for life, jingle with no meaning
Jerry (the song is ruined) the song is now ruined for life

I always switch the "baby" in lyrics to "Tony". That didn't seem right with this one so I used "Jerry" instead.
