I saw him on television
this wizened old man
speaking softly
of days of yore.

And then the host
Don Imus, said,
somewhat cruelly,
I thought,
“Would you do a
song for us?”

As this little old man
shuffled toward the piano,
I thought “This is awful;
an affront to my memory
of a legend.”

And then the old man
sat down at the piano
and time reversed
the hands flew
the voice bellowed
and “Great Balls Of Fire”,
Jerry Lee Lewis was back!

and so was I!
