Something Entirely New: Meta-Parody!

Yesterevening, my daughter and I journeyed to Boonton, New Jersey, to see a production of The Music Man directed and choreographed by a friend. A good time was had by both, and on the way home, the following lyric occurred to me, but I could think of nothing to do with it:

Seventy-Six Trombones needs a parody.
I haven't a goddam clue what to write.

That's it. There ain't no more.

My daughter and I decided that no American town name is more annoying to pronounce than "Boonton." The City Fathers really ought to do something about changing it.

Stymied? Perhaps try "Good Night My Someone"...same melody played in different rhythm. Was a good time...daughter sweet and keenly intelligent. O and locals drop the 'n' and the 't' so it sounds vaguely like...Boo-un.
