The Marvelous Sammpon
This song was created for Game of Bands round 103 : "Under the Influence"
THE MARVELOUS SAMMPON*
It was the big Senior Center Showtime
Marvelous Sammpon was the star of the show
There was no talent around that was more prime
Under his influence the subjects would go.
Old people flocked to the Center
The Greatest Hypnotist ever to live
The deepest of trances they'd enter
The greatest of shows he would give
"And so!" Said the Marvelous Sammpon
As he raised up his arms oh so proud
I won't hypnotise only one person,
I'll mesmerise the entire crowd!!
The shocked audience sat there and gawked
as he reached down deep into his vest
And pulled out a small antique clock;
The pocket watch waved in front of his chest.
"For six generations my family owned
this watch - it's so special to me "
Stated Sammpon as it waved to and fro
Its bezel shined tantalizingly.
It swung back and forth while chanting,
"Watch the watch, watch the watch, watch the watch"
Seniors hypnotized by the mantra
"And now in your mind, a command I will lodge"...
But then the watch slipped out and was gone!
It fell to the floor, and smashed into pieces
"CRAP!" screamed out the shocked Sammpon.....
and it took 3 days to clean up the feces.
