:( The last of the original rock 'n roll generation. RIP Jerry. :(

I wrote this for him about 9 years ago. Hope it makes you smile :)

"Great Wall of China"
(parody of "Great Balls of Fire" by Jerry Lee Lewis)

They built it so many years in the past;
Some people said it never would last.
And now it's here -
Let's have a beer!
Goodness gracious, Great Wall of China!

(band joins in)

So many tribes tried to break it all down,
But it made all of 'em look like clowns.
So very strong -
Never wrong -
Goodness gracious, Great Wall of China!

It's so stony -
Woo... looks good!
It's not bony -
Oh, and it can never be a-used as food
It's stone -
Not gone -
Mongols would not leave it all alo-o-o-one!

The river Yangtze, it runs all along
It's quite extensive - it sure is long
They built a wall -
'Twill never fall -
Goodness gracious, Great Wall of China!

(piano solo)

Well, it's so stony -
Woo... looks good!
It's not bony -
Oh, and it can't ever be a-used as food
It's stone -
Not gone -
Mongols would not leave it all alo-o-o-one!

The river Yangtze, it runs all along
It's quite extensive -- it sure is long
They built a wall -
'Twill never fall -
Goodness gracious, Great Wall of China!

I said -- goodness gracious, Great Wall of China!
Oooh!
