No one remembers Jack Benny
I find that sad
He was one of the funniest comedians
That we’ve ever had

I went to Waukegan Illinois
To the town where he grew up
There is a statue there in honor of him
I don’t think hardly anyone there knows who he is anymore

He didn’t like to spend money
I don’t like to spend money
His humor was born from hard times
I don’t know if most people could appreciate it today

We drove past the statue
I didn’t want to pay for parking
