The “Silly Season”

This is sung to the chorus of “Mandy” by Barry Manilow.

Oh Ross,
You came and you wrote about rapists
It was a nice try, oh Ross
Blamin’ it all on the 70s
and talkin’ to shrinks, oh Ross
It’s not going away with “contrition”
They raped kids and covered it up
Oh Ross
Oh Rooosssss!!!
