RUMBLE ON SESAME STREET
Copyright © 2004 - MickTerry.com
Mr. Rogers and the Captain
had it out in the neighborhood.
When Big Bird jumped in, swinging wings,
it could come to nothing good.
Porky Pig wore big brass knuckles.
Barney swung a heavy chain.
When the fight had stopped & the dust had cleared,
then it all began again.
There's a RUMBLE going down
ON SESAME STREET today.
They're fighting for supremacy,
who rules the kiddie waves.
There's a RUMBLE going down.
It's the SESAME STREET big fight.
& if things don't look so good right now,
just wait 'til tomorrow night.
Thomas Tank Engine was de-railed
by the Rugrats pulling track,
while Mickey Mouse and Wile E. C.
had a one-on-one out back.
Power Rangers and Transformers
ganging up on Elmer Fudd,
while Sylvester gulped down the Tweety Bird
just to prove he really could.
How it started is a wonder.
How it ends is to yet be seen.
Behind those soft and sweet facades
are accountants, hard and mean.
It has all come down to numbers
and the ratings for the ads.
When the big green bucks started pouring in,
maybe that's when things went bad.
There used to be a kindred feel
among the different shops.
While each had their own group appeal,
the goodness didn't stop.
But then there was an influx
of cartoons from across the waves,
& morning shows with an overdose
of toys put on parade.
But now, Elmo has a chokehold
clamping down on Bugs Bunny's neck.
The Teletubbies have jumped in
on the Ninja Turtles' backs.
Donald Duck has knocked out Scoobie.
Papa Smurf just hit Spongebob.
And if mothers get any word of this,
they will all be out of jobs.
