Wasted Away in Megnaritaville

 

Nibblin' on sponge cake,

watchin' the sun bake,

all those trenchers covered with oil.

Focusin' my Meade, out in the weeds.

Smell those burgers beginnin' to broil.


Wasted away again in Megnaritaville,

searching for that lost eyepiece from Walt.

Some people claim that Glenn Malcolm is to blame,

but I know it's Mark Rader's fault.


Don't know the reason,

stayed here all season,

with nothing to show but this telescope ad.

But it's a real beauty, an Italian cutie.

When it will get here

I haven't a clue.


Wasted away again in Megnaritaville,

searching for that lost eyepiece from Walt.

Some people claim that Dan Coley is to blame,

Now I think - hell, it's Mark Rader's fault.


I blew out my GOTO,

no longer slews through.

Packed up my stuff, had to cruise on back home.

But there's booze in the blender,

and soon it will render,

that frozen concoction that helps me hang on.


Wasted away again in Megnaritaville,

searching for that lost eyepiece from Walt.

Some people claim that Mark Melnyk is to blame,

but I know it's Mark Rader's fault.

Yes, and some people claim that Teri Denson's to blame,

and I know, it's Mark Rader's fault.
