Oh, I tried to write a song for Mr. Barnes
About his kind blue eyes
And how they shine when he laughs
I tried to write a song for Mr. B.
But not a word came to me
I tried to write a ditty
’Bout the way he calls me “kiddo”
He makes me feel at home every time
I thought I’d recite a sonnet
’Bout his patience and his wit
But however do you fit it in a simple little rhyme?
Oh, I tried with all my heart
But where, oh where is one to start
When writing songs for the incredible Mr. Barnes?
