Weird Al Yankovic - Dr. Demento's 15th Anniversary Special Lyrics




In the year of 1970
Underneath the old smogberry tree
First was heard a man that we all know
The one and only Dr. Demento

Nixon, Ford, and Carter, Reagan too
Remember all they did and didn't do
Through it all, one consistency
Spending once a week with Dr. D

So wind your radios way up tight
Raise your glasses high tonight
Like wine, his spirit has fermented
So here's to him, the one who stays demented

Changes come, seasons pass
Like Alice through the looking glass
He shares a world of madness that we cheer
For fifteen roly poly years.

So wind your radios way up tight
Raise your glasses high tonight
Like wine, his spirit has fermented
So here's to him, the one who stays demented

Don't forget to stay demented

Everybody sing
He has a very friendly, fuzzy face
And nobody could ever take his place
His fans around the globe will never dwindle
'Cause he fits so many records on his spindle

Stacks of laughing wax from floor to ceiling
Well, it gives him such a warm internal feeling
Whether you're Italian or Egyptian
He's bound to fill your musical prescription

Wind your radios way up tight
Raise your glasses high tonight
Like wine, his spirit has fermented
So here's to him, the one who stays demented

Wind your radios way up tight
Raise your glasses high tonight
Like wine, his spirit has fermented
So here's to him, the one who stays demented

In the year of 1970
Underneath the old smogberry trees
First was heard a man that we all know
The one and only Dr. Demento

Yeah

    I remember me and my sisters discovered the Dr Demento show on Christmas Eve in the mid 90’s when we were waiting for Santa....

    Does Dr. Demento still has his radio show? If so, where can I listen to it live outside of the US?

    Tiny Tim and Weird Al at the same concert? Damn. If only they'd performed together. That would've been something to behold.

    I can't believe I've never known about this special all these years. I've been listening to Dr. Demento since the 70's, and have hundreds of hours taped on reel to reel tapes. It doesn't get any better!

    My father had the cassette tape of Dr. Demento's 20th Anniversary and we listened to it all the time when I was a little kid. I didn't think anything of it until I got to be an adult and realized the two songs I used to love most from it were "Dead Puppies" and "The Homecoming Queen's Got a Gun." "Dead Puppies" was a family joke and we used to sing it at random from the time I was like, five. Now I'm seriously questioning his parenting, but still love the songs.
