BY PAUL MULDOON

I’ll be the Road Runner
To your Wile E Coyote
I’ll take you in my stride
I’ll be a Sancho Panza
To your Don Quixote
Your ever faithful guide

I’ll stand by you in the lists
With our market strategists
I’ll be your sideman, baby,
I’ll be by your side

I’ll be a Keith Richards
To your Mick Jagger
Before he let things slide
I’ll be Sears to your Roebuck
Before he took the headstaggers
And opened nationwide

I’ll support you at Wembley
I may require some assembly
But I’ll be your sideman, baby,
I’ll be by your side

I’ll be McCartney to your Lennon
Lenin to your Marx
Jerry to your Ben &
Lewis to your Clark
Burke to your Hare
James Bond to your Q
Booboo to your Yogi Bear
Tigger to your Pooh
Trigger to your Roy Rogers
Roy to your Siegfried
Fagin to your Artful Dodger
I guess I’ll let you take the lead

(guitar solo)

I’ll be a Chingachgook
To your Leatherstocking
A blaze of fur and hide
Our shares consolidated
Our directorates interlocking
I’ll be along for the ride

I’ll be at Ticonderoga
I’ll be there for you at yoga
I’ll be your sideman, baby,
I’ll be by your side
