The Ballad of Barry

Now where did that image go?

A Massive Monkey with a Heart of Gold

I wrote the following song for Barry, my new friend and former employer. Never did I have such a boss and never did I meet such a man. Getting to know Barry was a barrier-breaking experience and I leave his company with a few less prejudices.

So far, he is the only one I know who can consistently call me bitch, cunt and dickhead and still make me feel appreciated. So in reciprocal appreciation I dedicated this song to Barry aka The Cyclone.

I’ve recorded the song but since I cannot presently upload audio files, just imagine a Neil Young-like melody, played on a Western Guitar with a shaker and a choir of happy volunteers on the chorus.

The Ballad of Barry

If you’re feeling merry
No matter who you are
Come and hang with Barry
At Camp Moogerah

Chorus:
He is full of fun
Shining like a golden sun
(He’s a pure blonde)
Take you by surprise
‘Til you realize
What a friend you won

There is something funky
Something young and old
‘Bout this massive monkey
‘Got a heart of gold

Chorus

And forever after
Though we say our goodbyes
We will hear his laughter
See his smiling eyes

Chorus:
You are full of fun
Shining like a golden sun
(You’re a pure blonde)
Take us by surprise
‘Til we realize
What a friend we’ve won

Now where did that image go?
