Patsington has become obsessed with the theme from The Fall Guy. He wants to cover it with his band. And he keeps playing it.
And oh my God, it's kind of cool. And totally fucking hilarious.
Well, I'm not the kind to kiss and tell,
But I've been seen with Farrah.
I'm never seen with anything less than a nine, so fine.
I've been on fire with Sally Field,
Gone fast with a girl named Bo,
But somehow they just don't end up as mine.
It's a death defyin' life I lead,
I take my chances.
I die for a livin' in the movies and TV.
But the hardest thing I ever do
Is watch my leadin' ladies
Kiss some other guy while I'm bandagin' my knee.
I might fall from a tall building,
I might roll a brand new car.
'Cause I'm the unknown stuntman that made Redford such a star.
I never spend much time in school
But I taught ladies plenty.
It's true I hire my body out for pay, Hey Hey.
I've gotten burned over Cheryl Tiegs,
Blown up for Raquel Welch.
But when I end up in the hay it's only hay, Hey Hey.
I might jump an open drawbridge,
Or Tarzan from a vine.
'Cause I'm the unknown stuntman that makes Eastwood look so fine.
And Glen Larson wrote the lyrics himself! Fantastic.
Patsington and I just went to put up our (fake, alas) Christmas tree to find that its little tripod legs have disappeared! So we can't put it up! And I had the fresh cinnamon bundles all tied up with red ribbon, and the reindeer (Arthur and Lee) which missbassey and mr bassey gave us, all ready to decorate the branches. But this gives us an excuse to get a real tree, which will we do on Wednesday. Huzzah!
