Liz Immortalized In A Song
When Liz’s son Benjamin told me he jokingly refers to her as “meanie”, it was too good for me to pass up. He does it right to her face and it’s all in good fun of course.. Benjamin loves music, so I offered to help him write a song about it. Nice of me, right?
I know Benjamin likes to write music, so I thought I’d help him with some lyrics and I share them with you now. Ladies and gentlemen, some excerpts from “The Meanie Song”
It’s another quiet day in Squan
Not a whole lot going on.
If there’s trouble I don’t wanna know
Cause I’m just haning with my bro.
Then suddenly the silence cracks
Like an NJT comin down the tracks.
Just five words announce the doom
“Hey boys, clean this room”!
Meanie, meanie, meanie, meanie meanie mean
Meanie, meanie, meanie oh meanie meanie mean
The afternoon is hot and long
I’m just tryin to write a song
Then I hear footsteps on the floor
I think meanie’s behind the door
I just wanna soak up the Jersey Shore
Cause who could ask for anything more
But it’s tough to love the sand, boards and beaches
When it’s interrupted by a familiar screech.
I love her with all my heart and soul
I’ll take care of her when she’s old
But it’s not easy being Ben
When you’re hearing “I’m not going to say it again”!
