Gils got Corona

Filed under: Gil Thorp, Mimi Thorp — robmize2013 @ 7:29 pm

His name was Gildo

He was a teacher.

But that was 30 years ago, when they used to make some dough

Now he’s a statue

No need for coachin.

He pretends to give a care

But who knows whats in his hair

He works from 8 to 5

Drinking coffee half-blind.

Then he went to see his doctor

And he found out why



The Corona

Corona virus (the virus)

Has struck him worse than larynghitis

And the ‘Rona’s

At Gils cabana.

Music and passion will be out of fashion

At Cantina.

The coffee cups fell…

Over the sinkwell…


His name was Kaz-man

He wore a diamond

Gil hired him as his right- hand man

He met Kelly on demand

They hit a disco

And did the cha – cha

But some old dude went way too far

Kaz sailed across the bar

And then the punches flew and chairs were smashed in two

There was blood and open wounds

But just who got the flu??


Gil got ‘Rona

At the cabana.

It may be the end of the draaama.

Here at the high school

Where there’s a band of

Cheaters and writers and Marty Moon sighters

And a Duuucey…

Writing the lineups..

Out in the land of….

Gil’dos cabana.













  1. Bravo, rob!

  2. I had memories of Copacabana. An average, lousy song.
    But that hat, The lousy singing. The throwaway garbage lyrics.
    This shall not go unavenged!

  4. There’s a song called dead Rock n Rollers by a punk band called Detention. It laments in a disdainful way the loss of greats like Jim Morrison and Jon Bonham. Then exclaims,”Why couldn’t it be Barry Manilow!”
    Good stuff!

  6. Rob, I agree with Ned and Moon Mullins. You nailed this one to the wall. Touche, My Friend.
