For my Ph.D party over the weekend, a few of my old friends decided to get together and, unbeknownst to me, resurrected an old parody from a surprise birthday party seven years ago. The song, "Littlejohn Has Got it Goin' On" was a remarkably well-done spoof of that strange, out-of-the-blue hit song by Fountains of Wayne, "Stacy's Mom," from 203. Those of you unfortunate enough to have been listening to pop music in the early 2000s may have mercifully forgotten that song, and will now be cursing me for re-inserting its inexpungible catchiness into your head. But, although the performance on Saturday may have lacked a good deal in musicianship, I promised to pay tribute to the poetic effort, and to keep myself humble, by posting the lyrics of this parody-of-a-parody here today (though as with most such things, it may only be funny if you know the original, and may not be even then).
