Now This I Can't Believe: Someone Wrote A Song For Jenny The Elephant
I kinda wish this was a joke. But, no, even though"Jenny's Song"
like a joke (check this lyric: "Yes, people care for you in Texas / We found your freedom in Tennessee!"), it's not.
Says the CBS 11 report on the recording:
One songwriter is hoping her effort will help give Jenny a new home.
"There's nothing that really tells about an issue more than a song… more than music," explained singer Beverly Perry... "The verses themselves are talking to Jenny and the chorus is actually speaking to the City of Dallas."
Nice sentiment, I guess...
But the song itself? Um...listen to it.
There's just no way this song can possibly help Jenny's case (which, I thought was pretty much settled, anyway), is there? Not unless Mayor Tom really digs him some really, really, really sappy tunes.
