"Cully Surroga He's Almost Blind" as written by and Dory Previn....
cully surroga he's almost blind
one day his eyes just went dim
how could such a terrible think occur
when his mother took such care of him?

she cherished him
she nourished him
she praised him to the skies
she polished his mind and his body
so he would be both strong and wise
she saw to it he had a bicycle
to develop his arms and legs
she read him thoreau and theosophy
she fed him organic eggs
she saw to it he took his vitamin pills
five one-a-days every day
he choked every time he swallowed them
but she never heard
him say one word
but hey mom that's okay okay o
hey mom that's okay okay o
hey mom that's okay okay o
hey mom hey mom hey mom that's okay

she made him take up yoga
for the strength and the meditation
she saw to it he ate greens and beads
for good elimination
he happened to hate those beans and greens
but she never never never never heard
him say not one damn word against them
but hey mom that's okay

one day she got this notion
if he stared direct at the sun
he'd get his energy right from the source
it would shoot through his brain like a gun
like a gun
and universal light she cried
will penetrate your cells
and it will ring throughout your body
just like metaphysical bells
and you'll be better built
and you'll be better read
and you'll be better able to run
and then in the little league
and then in the basketball
you'll be the graduate number one
mother's son
you'll be the graduate number one
mother's son

well he stared at the sun dear mother
he stared every day for an hour
till the sphere began to fade
and the light lost most of its power
and the day went dim
dear god dear mother
and the sweet sun slipped away
and there ain't no sun no more no more
there's just a ball of grey

he wrote that for some reason
whatever
he can't recall
dear mom he wrote
there ain't no sun
he wrote it on a men's room wall
no more sun he wrote
no more shine he wrote
just a ball of grey
other than that mom i'm doin' fine
i take my vitamins five a day
i hang out in bookstores like i should
i meet some well read girls that way
my elimination is very good
so there's nothin' more to say to say
but hey mom that's okay okay o
hey mom that's okay okay o
hey mom that's okay okay o
hey mom hey mom hey mom that's okay
