Last Night I Dreamed

Last night I dreamed

That I won a Grammy
It was presented to me
By Debbie Harry
I ran up on stage in my tux
I gulped and I said, “Aw, shucks.”
“I’d like to thank my producer,
and Jesus Christ.”
The audience gave me
A standing ovation
I shed tears of joy
I shed tears of elation
Behind the podium there
Debbie grabbed my derriere
And I’d like to thank my producer
And Jesus Christ.
I took my Grammy, and Debbie
And I walked off stage
We made the cover of Cashbox
And the Random Notes Page
In the weeks that followed
Things went fine for me
An Oscar, a Tony, and an Emmy
Bo Derek and Barbara Mandrell
Meryl Streep and Tammy Terell
A Pulitzer and a Nobel
Five gold and one bronze as well
And I’d like to thank my producer
And Jesus Christ.
(Congratulations to Loudon Wainwright III, for finally winning that elusive Grammy.)
