You often go out
With Bill Simmons and House
Eating goat head without
Rose’s Luxury
Is the place you should be
Not some strip mall fast food thats
I know you’ve been there on a hundred days
Tell Tommy Jacomo we’re on our way
Don’t eat at the Subway Tony
Go back to the Palm instead
There’s no wine at the Subway Tony
So have some red
And get the chicken parm
Or soft shell crabs
You’re at your table again

A parody of “Don’t Sleep In The Subway” by Tony Hatch and Jacke Trent as performed by Petula Clark

Great lyrics and VERY nice job on this melody - cause it's much trickier to sing than it sounds. Loved hearing this on the show. I'm somehow familiar with the original song, although I had no idea who wrote or sang it until now.

Don't bother with Petula Clark's version, Rob. She missed EVERY punchline.....KJ rocks and Barto kills!

I'm with you Anita, you kids get off my lawn :) It's remarkable how well KJ sings it having never heard it before. Thanks to all of you who take your time to record my silly lyrics.

So great! I hope they play it on a day Jeanne is there. She and TK will fawn all over it _and_ the original. Nice work you two!
