Oh Bob Ryan, he’s the man
Bob Ryan
He’s a-writing and opining,
Always got us smiling,

Wanna know ‘bout the Pats,
what the food’s like in France,
Ask Bob Ryan, he’s always got a stance.
Ask Bob Ryan, Bob Ryan.
He’s a quintessential writer,
take him to your desert isle,
Bob Ryan Bob Bob Bob Bob Ryan.
He’s a-writing and opining,
Always got us smiling,
Bob Ryan Bob Bob Bob Bob Ryan

Just listened to this...might be the most carefully crafted, brilliantly worded, columnette-like jingle ever.

This was simply brilliant. I was all high on my horse getting a stupid ebola song played two days in a row and then this came on. Boom!

When I heard the opening line my first thought was, "Damn, I wish I'd thought of this." Very good tune & I'm glad they played it on today's show!

This was the wrong thing to play for the woman related to me by marriage in order to convince her that the Littles aren't crazy. *readjusts his tinfoil hat*

Loved it, Kjerstin. The idea came to me over the Summer and I put it in a drawer and forgot, but it NEVER would have been as good as this is.
