You and I and George

I was fortunate enough to receive "The Muppet Show" season one on DVD this Christmas (thanks Drapo!) and I can't even tell you how fun it is to be watching the Muppet Show again. It really was our "Saturday Night Live" when we were kids..guest stars and skits and all. And now I'm going to share with you one of the gems I've found from the first episode. It's a song that Rowlf sings while playing his piano, and it's called "You and I and George". Below please find his intro and the lyrics.

I'm now going to play you one of the great classic songs of our time.
It's called 'You and I and George'.
Now you might say,
'How come I've never heard this ever popular classic before?'
And the reason is
that in its only recording, 'You and I and George' sold two copies
I bought one and George bought one
Where were you?

My own mother turns down her hearing aid whenever I play this song...
here goes

"You and I and George,
went strolling
through the park one day
and you held my hand
as if to say
I love you,

we passed a brook,
and George
fell in and drowned himself
and was washed out to sea
leaving you alone
with me!"

So awesome. :-) (Yes I'm really bored at work. Sue me.)
