Ode to Edwards

Remember the old song, Poor Johnny One Note?

Poor Johnny one-note
Sang out with "gusto"
And just overlorded the place
Poor Johnny one-note
Yelled willy nilly
Until he was blue in the face
For holding one note was his ace

I remember hearing that for the first time twenty years ago. For some strange reason that song came to mind as I was checking in a lease return at work today. But somebody else's name seemed to fit even better ...

Poor Braylon Edwards
Drafted by Cleveland
But just couldn’t smile in this place
Poor Braylon Edwards
Traded to New York
And now as a Jet sets the pace
Still dropping the ball is his ace
