Jim Brooks treated the Company to a Dr. Seuss blues rendition of “When the Night Wind Howls” at the 2005 Last Gasp Cast Bash, performed by members of the company
Yes, my name is Rod and that rhymes with cod,
And I Rhyme couplets night and day.
Oh, the witch’s curse makes me sing in verse,
In a Doctor Seuss-like way.
Just like One fish, two, red fish and blue,
I try, but I can’t refuse,
And I’ll never take this for one more day.
Ghosts! Help me sing tha-ah blues!
Oh ghosts! Help me sing the blues!
All right! The bluuuuues!
We’ll help you sing the blues!
Rather rob and steal, it’s really no big deal,
But this rhyming is a crime.
Could not shoot a fox,
Would not in a box I’m rhyming all of the time.
Would not in a house,
Could not with a mouse, I can’t stop, so what’s the use?
For I’ll never take this for one more day,
Ghouls help me sing tha-ah blues!
Oh ghouls! Help me sing the blues!
Get Down! The bluuuuues!
We’ll help you; we’ll sing the blues!
Ghost of Dr. Suess ’pears each night in puce,
And demands I repeat his words,
No! You can’t believe, my sense has taken leave.
And I know it sounds absurd!
But I meant what I said and I said what I meant,
(Spoken) Bad Baronet’s faithful 100 percent,
Oh! I can’t take this for one more day,
Art, help me sing tha-ah blues
Oh Art, help me sing the blues!
We’ll help you, we’ll sing the blues.
Good Lord! We’re Through!
