Change Roy Orbison's "Only the Lonely" lyrics into "Joey the Lonely" in honor of Lieberman.
There seem to be some juicy opportunities in this rewrite attempt.


Roy Orbison Only The Lonely lyrics

Only the lonely
(r.orbison/melson)


Dum-dum-dum-dumdy-doo-wah
Ooh-yay-yay-yay-yeah
Oh-oh-oh-oh-wah
Only the lonely

Only the lonely (dum-dum-dum-dumdy-doo-wah)
Know the way I feel tonight (ooh-yay-yay-yay-yeah)
Only the lonely (dum-dum-dum-dumdy-doo-wah)
Know this feelin aint right (dum-dum-dum-dumdy-doo-wah)

There goes my baby
There goes my heart
They're gone forever
So far apart

But only the lonely
Know why
I cry
Only the lonely

4. Second that.
Find something else to ridicule Holy Joe with. There are plenty to choose from.

6. How about the tune "Hey Joe" ?
Hey Joe, where you goin' with that knife in your hand?
Hey Joe, I said where you goin' with that knife in your hand?

I'm goin' to backstab my ole party, after messin' round with a Maverick man.
I'm goin' to backstab my party, you know I got caught messin' round with a Maverick man.
And that ain't too cool.


Hey Joe, I've heard you knifed your party down, knifed it down, now
I said I heard you knifed your old party,
You knifed it down to the ground.

Yes I did, I knifed it.
You know, I got caught messin' round, messin' round town
Yes I did, I knifed it.
You know, after I got caught messin' 'round town
And I gave it the knife.
I KNIFED IT!

(guitar solo)

Hey Joe, I said now
Where you gonna run to now?
Where you gonna run to?
Hey Joe, I said where you gonna run to now?
Where you, where you gonna go?
Well, dig it

I'm goin' way down for some healthcare.
Way down to Medicare way.
Alright!
I'm goin' way down for Medicare,
Way down where I get it free
Ain't no one gonna bill me

Ain't no insurance man gonna,
He ain't gonna send a bill to me
You better believe it right now
I gotta go now
Hey Joe, you better run on down
Good by everybody
Hey Joe, uhh
Run on down

8. There goes my gavel -There goes my heart - They're gone forever - So far apart
There goes my gavel
There goes my heart
They're gone forever
So far apart

But Joey the lonely
Knows why
I cry
Only the lonely
