Friday Red Mr. Peanut Bank and Gallito Mescalito Blogging: See Ya, Jake! Edition

For the Reverend Terry Lee Martin Fixed by the Alter Guild

Tune: "See You Later, Alligator" as performed by Bill Haley and the Comets


Well he's gonna close his blog down
That's what Father Jake said


Well he's gonna close his blog down
That's what Father Jake said
When I asked him "What's the matter?"
This is what I heard him say:



See you later alligator
After 'while, crocodile
See you later alligator
After 'while, crocodile
Gonna do sumpin' else now
I'll be back in a while



When I thought of what he told me,
Nearly made me lose my head



'Cuz I like to read the comments
And see what everybody's said
But Jake's Place is closing down now
This is what we heard him say:



See you later alligator
After 'while, crocodile



See you later alligator
After 'while, crocodile
Gonna do sumpin' else now
I'll be back in a while


Big honkin' squawkin' horn solo





That place had great conversations
But some mean talk, too



Yeah, some GREAT conversations,
But I said some mean stuff there, too
Jake said it was getting toxic
And endangering his soul, sooooo



See you later alligator
After 'while, crocodile
See you later alligator
After 'while, crocodile
Gonna do sumpin' else now
I'll be back in a while



David and Lynn've started places
Where we can all congregate




Yeah, they've started online places
Where we can all congregate
And we don't know what might happen
They're may even be comments by Jake!

said But for now it's:

sung See you later, alligator,
After 'while, crocodile


See you later, alligator,
So long, that's all
Goodbye!!


¡¡SSHHRRRRRIIIIIIEEEEEKKKK!!

A fitting tribute...I put on da tune courtesy of youTube in another tab for full effect.

Ann said...

perfect-- good to know when to quit - but a loss for the rest of us.

johnieb said...

Outstanding, worthy of him and of you.

I likes it!

Padre Mickey:

you have out done yourself! And the music is wonderful!!!!

FranIAm said...

Bravo to you and of course to Jake/Terry.

Good on him- good on him.

Two things... I see this morning that Jake's place is already closed... and second, is anyone else having trouble getting the Mad One's page to load? It must be the Lambeth song that is causing Firefox to freeze. Just curious.

Padre, I made a weak attempt at a Salsa posting over at OTA. Can someone from the "global center" help a girl out? Some dude named Fred posted a Cuban-style salsa - perhaps you can coax something from your lovely Mona...

Padre, not only is there a Tony in your future, you may want to clear some space on the mantle for the Grammy that's coming!!!

pj said...

Aw. Take a break, Fr. Jake. You sure deserve it.

This is a lovely tribute, Padre.

Paul said...

The Dance Party crew delivers once again.

So much love and gratitude for Fr Jake. Hooray for the community that carries on.

Hooray is right! I'm in California being pursued by small fictional charactors in animal costumes...thank God I was trained at Padre Mickeys and Fr. Jakes for weird encounters...btw, it seems that everyone dislikes Bush AND religious zealots here (and they aren't even LGBT people I'm hanging with).

See you when I see you and thanks for being here (wherever here is) Padre!

I See You!
