O-kay. . . .
Over 25 years ago (as of 2012), [redeacted] came up with some . . . alternate words to an established song. Whilst I didn't think all that much of them, [redacted] was really taken with them.
Something like 17 years ago (!), I told them to [redacted]. She was . . . rather taken with the little jingle, and remembered it in detail. Well, here it is—in all its "glory."
Sung to the tune of "Spiderman," by Rob Harris:
Gerbil Man, Gerbil Man
Does Whatever a Gerbil Can
Shave 'Im Down, Slick 'Im Up, in a Tube,"
Up the Butt
There Goes the Gerbil Man!
Bwaaaah! Bwaaaah! Bwaaaah!
Well, just recently, it has seemed to have had a "resurgence." It was told to an aspiring tuba player–who was so taken with the little tune–that he sang it to his father, himself a college English professor.
His father found it . . . intriguing.
What are we—save for our stories?
