Media Frenzy "Off the Mark"

Another parody for your reading and humming pleasure --
this one to the tune of the Beatles' "Drive My Car."

Apologies to John Lennon and Sir Paul McCartney


Newspapers are not selling too well
And TV news' ratings smell
We need something catchy, a story so mad
To get some readers and sell some ads

Chorus:
We can cover John Mark Karr
He's a real tabloid star
We can cover John Mark Karr
And we will make money

His confession made the story so good
and he knew things that no one could
The prosecution should all go just fine
Except for problems with place and time

Chorus:
Still we headline John Mark Karr
He's the talk of every bar
We can cover John Mark Karr
And we will make money

We couldn't wait to start right away
And then they came out with that unmatched DNA
There is no case and it's breakin' my heart
But I've got a book deal and that's a start

Chorus:
We can still use John Mark Karr
His prosecution we can tar
We can cover John Mark Karr
And we will make money
