Contracts Songbook

Cherylpreston_1 From the archives of the Department of Contract Musicology comes another classic from Cheryl Preston (BYU), this one about everyone's favorite unnaturally hirsute appendage.  (To hear the tune, click here.)

Hawkins' Lullaby
(Theme Song of Hawkins v. McGee)

lyrics by Cheryl B. Preston
music by George Weiss, Hugo Peretti, and Luigi Creatore

[to the tune of I Can’t Help Falling in Love With You by Elvis Presley]

Wise men say
Only fools rush in.
But I couldn't help
Letting you operate.

Shall I sue?
Would it be a sin
If I can't bear
What you've done to it?

Like a furry bear
Covered all with hair.
Darling so it goes . . . .
This thing's not meant to be.

Take my hand,
Take my whole life too.
But I can't help
Filing a big lawsuit.

I've a major scar
Scratched across my heart.
Darling so it goes . . . .
Some things aren't meant to be.

Fix my hand;
Fix my whole life too.
For I can't help
Filing a big lawsuit.
For I can't help
Filing a big lawsuit.
