i have it...you want it?
My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.

It's a live song. It's better to listen to it sung by Ben...

Or read it on the Super D disk.

That I have no idea, the lyrics match the lyrics that are on the Super D CD.

The one I have (or had--not sure where it is) has two tracks.  It's a DC show around 2002, I think... Ben tries to play Uncle Walter but he forgets the words, someone yells, "Tell a joke!" and he tells the pirate joke.  Then, he plays the last few bars of Uncle Walter and starts a new song, which turns out to be the joke put to music, which is what I assume you're downloading above.

So for the ones who haven't heard it, anyone have the Uncle Walter/Ben telling the joke track handy?

And wait, what about Super D?
