old club veg parody of billy joel

Billy Joel’s We Didn’t Start the Fire was once parodied by MMM radio’s Club Veg. For some reason, as I was telling trev, I have that parody stuck in my head, even though it’s based on an event that happened in 1990.

Here’s what I could remember:

with babies screaming in the grandstand
the referees are blind and
i threw my racquet to the ground
and told ’em where to go


The grand slam man said
“Scram McEnroe”

I am truly sorry
i’m a different man
as gentle as a lamb now
i am really very sorry
if you let me back in
I’ll never swear again.

i’ll bite my tongue; i’ll count to ten;
i’ll never swear again..

Can anyone else even remember this song?
