A parody of a group I loved listening to growing up while on road trips with my Dad. M.T.A. was one of my Kingston Trio faves. Let's hope Tony doesn't end up on the Old People's Network.
Well, let me tell you a story of a man named Tony
A cranky old bald, orange man
He won't tweet a word, can't plug in a toaster & I'm scared
He is bound for the OPN!

But, will be ever return?
Well, his contract he's earned, but his fate is still unlearned. (Sonsabitches)
He may roam forever at the Browse About bookstore
Give him a contract so he can return.

Now it's time for the mail at the radio station
Time to hear what the Littles think
From Carla Carroto to Brendan Borzelli, they all think that
This show stinks!

But, will be ever return?
Well, his contract he's earned, but his fate is still unlearned. (What's your deal?)
He may roam forever along the streets of Rockville
Give him a contract so he can return.
