Ode to Edwards

Remember the old song, Poor Johnny One Note?

Poor Johnny one-note
Sang out with “gusto”
And just overlorded the place
Poor Johnny one-note
Yelled willy nilly
Until he was blue in the face
For holding one note was his ace

I remember hearing that for the first time twenty years ago. For some strange reason that song came to mind as I was checking in a lease return at work today. But somebody else’s name seemed to fit even better …

Poor Braylon Edwards
Drafted by Cleveland
But just couldn’t smile in this place
Poor Braylon Edwards
Traded to New York
And now as a Jet sets the pace
Still dropping the ball is his ace
