Lyrics

Here’s both an homage to and a scolding of Nigel for his wonderful support of our jingles and with that support, subsequently creating (jingle) monsters (who may or may not be jingling when they should be doing other things).
Set to “Kaw-Liga” by Hank Williams, although Charley Pride’s version is the one I grew up listening to. Happy summer, all!

Lyrics:

He's Nigel, he's a sneaky Englishman, runs the mailbag.

He picks our notes, the jingle that's played, & even if we'll get some swag.

He's Nigel, yeah, well he really runs the whole damn TK show,

If not for him, there'd be no jingles, no!

Well, now we're in the summer months & Tony's show is dark

I still email just in case but it's just some dude named Marc!

Hey Nigel, where are you?

Now, I'm sending songs to a show that's not on,

At least I've still got tkjingles.com

What have you done Nigel, in 1 week I'll be hitched.

Oh man Nigel, my fiancée's really pissed.

I don't have to wonder why I tempt my fate

It’s cuz Nigel you played my song one day!

Considering that the original was written and recorded before the birth of rock and roll itself, I say you get a pass!!

Another interesting thing about this jingle's original was hearing Jerry's pronunciation of the title on this week's podcast. I believe he said something like COW-LEEGA. Sorry Jer, couldn't resist!!

That's so nice Joe, thank you! Jerry- Yes! But not on purpose, really. As you eluded to a bit in your latest podcast, songs are always running through our heads and we can't help but think of potential jingles. Kaw-Liga popped into my head and I immediately turned that into Nigel and then I started thinking that if he hadn't of played that first jingle of mine, I probably wouldn't have developed this "addiction," yada, yada, yada, and then a little while later, I had a jingle. Plus, it's a great stress reliever and I need that right now :) But, now I'm done jingling for sure. Well, at least until the 27th...

Still working the jingles with an impending wedding?! The show may be over (for now) but the jingles march on.
