Owl, Owl

Luke is a little boy
He has a business card
It says he'll sell you some real estate
If you can show him that you have a good credit score

Luke is a little boy
He has the longest hair
Of anyone in this house
He'll tell you he's going to
Grow up to be a grown-up[1]

Luke is a little boy
He's not a Democrat
Or a Republican
This year he's thankful for cupcakes
He would like to eat five

Luke is a little boy
He rides a rocking horse
Into the living room
Transfers from there to the Metra train
He rides the Purple line[2] north

Luke is a little boy
He likes to listen to Queen on the radio
He dances around and around and around
Another One Bites The Dust

Luke is a little boy
He is a songwriter
This is the second song he ever wrote, it goes:

Owl, owl
Jumped on a light
Flew in the air
Jumped on some sweets
Jumped on a candy
Went outside
Drove to Springfield[3]

  1. Luke gets songwriting credit on all the best lines in this song, including the entire coda. ↩︎

  3. The Springfield in The Simpsons is state-agnostic. In this song, I can assure you, it's IL. ↩︎
