BALLAD OF THE WELL KNOWN TRUEFAN Tune: "Ballad Of The Unknown Stuntman" (The Fall Guy) By" Glen A. Larsen Now, i'm not the kind to kiss and tell But I've been seen with Harlan! I've never been seen with anyone but a Pro! Oh no! Oh no! I've been real drunk with Bob Tucker Filksang with Haldeman! Somehow it seems that they all love me so! Ho ho! Ho ho! It's a real Astounding life I lead Hearing all the gossip SF is my hobby but fandom is more fun! But the smartesst thing I ever so By far is to drop the names of Pro's all over While I'm making some gross pun! I might go to Cons all over And I do like Hotel Bars! Oh, I'm the Well Known Truefan That makes Pournelle such a star! I've never spent much time reading But I know Pro's a plenty! It's true I've never written anything But hey! I sing!! Now, I've gotten lost with Gordie D Made boose runs with Aspirin But when the Dorsai start to sing I always say - Oy vey! Oy vey! Oh, I might SMOF with BNF'sOr fall for Tucker's line! Cause I'm The Well Known Truefan That makes Heinblien look so fine!! WASN'T THAAT A FILKSING? Tune: "Wasn't That A Party?" By: Tom Paxton Might have been the Tully Might have been the gin Might have been the three or four Jim Beam's I don't know! But would ya look at the mess I'm in?! Voice like a bullfrog Bleeding fingers make me cry But tell me, me oh me oh my! Wasn't that a filksing?! Well, Gordy went for ice Hasn't made it back! I saw Suzette down by the Hotle front desk Singing to a potted plant! She was singing about Gordie The plant was singing back! Long about then everything went black! But wasn't that a filksing!? I'm sure it's just my mem'ry Fails me when it can! But I think I saw ol' Yang T Seduce a femme fan ("Have some Madeira, M'Dear?") He was grinnijng I could see C. J. was sitting in the Hotle Lobby Blowing on a siren from somebody's Police car! Me and Joe and Yang now Went a little far! We were setting off fire alarms To empty out the Hotel Bar! We were stealing all the Tully The Hotel wants it back! Think maybe we ought to go and pack - But wasn't that a filksing!? So you see Your Honor! It was all in fun! That little bitty track meet through the Hotel halls Was just to see if the cops could run! Well, they run us in to see you I'm in an alcoholic haze! And I sure can use those thirty days! But - wasn't that a filksing!?
