  • Parody of "Greensleeves" (M_Robertcop)
  • Song Lyrics:
    In Sherwood Forest
    There dwelt a knight
    Who was known
    As the righteous Sir Greenbaum

    And many dragons
    Had felt the might
    Of the smite
    Of the righteous Sir Greenbaum

    I chanced upon him one morn
    When he'd recently rescued a maiden fair
    Why, why art thou so forlorn
    Sir Greenbaum, is thy heart heavy laden?

    Said he, "Forsooth
    'Tis a sorry plight
    That engendered my attitude bluish"
    Said he, "I don't wanna be a knight
    That's no job for a boy who is Jewish"

    All day with the mighty sword
    And the mighty steed and the mighty lance
    All day with that heavy shield
    And a pair of aluminum pants

    All day with the slaying and slewing
    And smiting and smoting like Robin Hood
    Oh, wouldst I could kick the habit
    And give up smoting for good

    And so he said to the other knights,
    "You may have my possessions and my goods
    For I am moving to Shaker Heights
    Where I've got some connections in dry goods

    Farewell to the dragon's paw
    And the other swashbuckling games and sports
    I'll work for my father in law
    When I marry Miss Guinevere Schwartz
