Here's one of those traditional, melancholy I-can't-wait-until-Mr. Tony-returns-in September summer jingles Jerry eluded to on last week's prodcast. Buckle your belts- it's a full length jingle.

Oh the bitter winds will soon be coming in
So I know I should be soaking up the summer
Minnesota's cold & I've been told
I was born to endure its crazy weather.
But instead I find (must be losin' my mind)
Seem to be wishin' this season to wind down

So tell me am I screwed? Cuz since you left in June
I've been to the zoo in search of a friendly baboon. 
And Then I asked him "Please hold my koozie
and smile, little monkey, smile for me!”

Now everyone knows this is one big stinkin’ show
So you’d think I could have some more patience
And I’ve been here before yet I still want more
Hope Tone starts before that September promise
But I’m not holding back, that’s the strength that I lack
Every morning keep searching through my inbox
Ain’t just Tone’s dormant state, I miss my jingling mates
and our daily conversations.

And I’ve been in a sullen mood since the end of June.
Waitin’ for more quips from Brad and a Johnny croon.
And here’s me asking all of you
Just sing, Little jinglers, sing with me.

And yes my drinks stay cool
And my golf game's improved.
And I know we’re not missing much to tell you the truth.
And my summer so far has been a blast.
So tell my why this show can’t return too fast.

What’ve you been up to since you left in June?
Golfing with your kid and Bubes too.
I’m just sayin’ that’s nothing new.
Come back, Mr. Tony and yak for me.
Come back, Mr. Tony and yak for me.

*Channeling my inner Swede with a parody of First Aid Kit's "Emmylou"

This is so nice. "Little Monkey Smile for Me" should be the title of your next album.
