Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )

Song of Corporate Alley


Song of Corporate Alley

I worship the gods OhByGosh and ByGolly
One’s rather rash, the other quite jolly

Neither asks tithing except initial teething
Both entail writhing with a bit of reeling

One comes from Heck, the other some Heaven
On wrong side of track with odds uneven

With their Holy Gulpees and Thin Wafer Stew
They purge your sin while cleaning out you

And putting on pounds while weakening spine
Making it easier to swallow the official line

Of there’s no wrong, it’s all to the good
Now handcuff your hands, put head in hood

Trust us to muster the checks and pays
It’ll be good long as you do what we sez

For oh by Gosh by Golly is now official volley
As we walk through The Corporate Valley

With corporate race run all night long
due date due date
