V2: Ted the magic driver with a plan called amnesty

May 22, 2007

Ted, the magic driver lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist with a lamb called Kopechne,
Little Georgie Junior loved that rascal Ted,
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy treads. oh

Ted, the magic driver lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist with a plan called amnesty,
Ted, the magic driver lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist with a lamb called Kopechne.

Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail
Georgie kept a lookout perched on Ted’s gigantic tail,
Noble kings and emirs would bow whene’er they came,
Pirate ships would lower their flag when Ted roared out Jo’s name. oh!

Ted, the magic driver lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist with a plan called amnesty,
Ted, the magic driver lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist with a lamb called Kopechne.

A drowner lives forever but not so little girls
Painted wings and giant rings make way for other swirls.
One grey night it happened, Mary’s vapor came no more
And Ted that mighty driver, he ceased his fearless roar.

His head was bent in sorrow, green tales fell like rain,
Ted no longer went to play along the Chappie lane.
Without his little girl friend, Ted could not be brave,
So Ted that mighty driver sadly slipped into his cave. oh!

Ted, the magic driver lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist with a plan called amnesty,
Ted, the magic driver lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called amnesty.

    The ORIGINAL “Ted the Magic Driver” was written in the very early 1970’s by a group at the University of Wisconsin, and started out

    Ted the magic driver drove through the woods
    And with a half a bag on, he did what he could
    To get his little chickie down in the grass
    But the bridge was not too wide and magic Teddy crashed
