"Two Reelers" as written by and Charles Thompson....
A lot of people love that Jerome
Did you know he missed his comb?
All his life was in pain
Made us laugh he never did complain
Brother Sam was more than okay
Returned once more to save the day
Slicked-back hair he did keep
Making a heep, heep, heep, heep, heep

If all you see is violence
Then I make a plea in their defense
Don't you know they speak Vaudevillian?

And for what it is hear what my theory is
Some gibberish it is so serious
What we need is more silly men

Though underrated all the time
Louis was so very fine
Without him, imagine
Did you know he could play the violin?
Most important was brother Moe
He was the one who made it so
He got a Joe and another Joe
He would not quit, he would not quit

And Mr White heard bad report
And so it ends the two reeler short
'Cause you cannot do what you can't
And Mr White heard bad report
And so it ends the two reeler short
'Cause you cannot do what you can't

If all you see is violence
Then I make a plea in their defense
Don't you know they speak Vaudevillian?

    General CommentThree Stooges.

    Jerome is Curly, Sam is Shemp, Louis is Larry. Mr White could be Jules or Jack White who directed a lot of Stooges shorts.

    General CommentVaudeville was a type of theater popular in those days. There was violence but it was lighthearted unlike the crap that is out nowadays.

    General Comment"He got a Joe and another Joe"

    After the death of Shemp (who himself was a replacement for the ailing Curly), Moe Howard hired Joe Besser as a replacement. After Besser left the team, Joe DeRita was hired.
