TRIBUTE TO JOE OFFER
(Big Al Whittle)

Oh, special Offer, special Offer, you all ought to know
We've a special Offer and we call him Joe

The white smokes over the Vatican, they want Joe for pope
But without him down at Mudcat, we just couldn't cope

It's special Offer, special Offer, from his beard to his big toe
We've a special Offer and we call him Joe

[SCAT INTERLUDE]

Now when it comes to idiots he's so very tolerant
Because he's only twenty-one, he uses gray-hair colorant

Oh, special Offer, special Offer, you all ought to know
Yeah, we've a special Offer and we call him Joe

Now his head fell out on a midsummer's mornin', the folk sing-i-ers, they sang off key
Them pretty flow boys, they put on silk perjammers, and the silky came off; how tough to see

All over Mudcat did the valleys ring
In every green tree and every farmstead you could hear them sing

They sang special Offer, special Offer, you all ought to know
We've a special Offer and we call him Joe

Yeah, special Offer, special Offer, you all ought to know
We've a special Offer and we call him Joe

Foe dee oh doe!

As usual, I forgot to mention: I transcribed the lyrics from the source provided above.

Big Al, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong--it is your song, after all!

I gotta admire a man who rhymes tolerant with hair colorant.

Thanks, Al, for expressing the gratitude so many of us feel.

My, but you play the guitar well.
