Little Bunny Foo-Foo Songs

#1 by Iris

Here come Iris and Shiloh,
Hoppin' through the forest,
Scoopin' up the Munchkins
And boppin' 'em on the head!

Hear them squeal in terror,
Tremblin' at our presence,
Makin' piddle in their pants,
We fill them full of dread.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

#2 by Becky

Here come all the Munchkins,
Hoppin' through the forest,
Huntin' down the Tall Folks
And aimin' for them knees!
Hear them squeal in terror,
Watch them hop on one foot,
Munchkins dance a vic'try jig,
And laugh and laugh -- hee-hee!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

#3 by Debra C

And along came Hairy Blairy,
To keep the Munchkins safe.
With his converted Tall Folk henchmen,
Banks, H., Jim, and Rafe.

He peered up at Eiffel Iris,
And said, "Look, can't you see?
Bopping Munchkins on the head,
is *SO*, like, not PC.

I've warned you once and warned you twice,
and now you'll rue the day
For bopping Munckins on the head,
you're surely gonna pay.

Now take this bag,
and take this trial
and pick up all the trash,
And at the end give it to
the fellow...name of Lash.



The Sentinel Fanfic Writer's Anthem
by Iris

Write away! Write away!
Imagination is at play.
Take your pen into your hand,
And travel to a far-off land.
Cross o'er river and valley wide.
Trust your heart and soul to Guide.
Snow-kissed mountains, strong and tall,
Standing Sentinel, guard us all.
Until at last our journey's made,
And friendship reigns throughout Cascade.


To the Tune of The Oscar Meyer Weiner song
by Cat

My fandom has a first name,
It's J-A-M-E-S

My fandom has a second name,
It's B-L-A-I-R

Put them both together and they spell
S-E-N-T-I-N-E-L


To the Tune of Home on the Range
by Iris

Oh give me a home,
Where the spammers can't roam,
Where news groups can no longer post.
And if they dare do,
Red Munchkin promises you,
They'll be summarily reduced to toast!

Sweet, sweet Cascade Times!
You spammers are not welcome here.
Where never is heard,
A single ng's dumb word--
I think Red made that perfectly clear!


To the Tune of Imagine This by John Lennon
by Impala
(all apologies to John Lennon....but I know he would forgive....he would be with us if he could)
The original, of course, belongs to him......

Imagine there is no up of n*
It's easy if you try
No hell for TS writers
No need to question, "Why?"
Imagine all us fans
Watching TS everyday.....

Imagine there's no Moesha
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to write affiliates for
No 7 Days too
Imagine all the smarm fans
Watching TS everyday......

You may say I'm a schemer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And make the Nielsen's move past 1.

Imagine nothing but the boys
I wonder if you can
No need for tears or taping
A brotherhood of Senfan
Imagine all the list sibs
Watching TS everyday......

You may say I'm a schemer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And make the Nielsen's move *way* past 1........


Ode To TS
by Angie

My show it has a first name
it's S-E-N-T-I-N-E-L

My show it has no second name
But still it did so well.

I loved to watch it every week
Until deano made it sink!

That's why I'll only say hooray
when upn is gone away.


Boxers of White Satin
sung to tune of Nights in White Satin*
by Impala
*original song, Nights In White Satin, belongs to the Moody Blues who write many items for the TS fans enjoyment, BTW

Boxers of White Satin
And plaid for Talls/Munchkins
Ad Group letters I've written
And still have to send.
Each Monday we ne-ver miss
Taping each ep. is a chore
But how much TV time is left
We can't say anymore.

But I love ya'll
Yes, I love ya'll
Oh how I looove youu guuys

Gazing at Nielsens
That scourge of Sen fans
Just what we go through
No one else understands.
Some try to say things
Stuff they can't defend.
That our show may be cancelled
So we can't stand up of n!

But I love ya'll
Yes I love ya'll
Oh how I looove yooouu guuys!!!!!


To the Tune of the Armour Hot Dog song
by Bonnie Stargazer

Sentinel, The Sentinel,
The TV show everybody loves.
Tall kids, munchkins,
even kids with dust busters,
love Sentinel, The Sentinel,
The show we all love to write!


DV Got Run Over by a Sentinel
to the Tune of Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer
by TAE

DV got run over by a Sentinel
Driving home from upn last night
Folks say (those who saw it) found it funny,
And hope we get our show back on tonight.

Blair bemoaned the wrecking of his friend's truck,
But thought that it was in a real good cause.
Simon grinned and lit his cigar
While Joel threw tn in their car.

DV got run over by a Sentinel...

Poor tn, how he cowers,
trapped in the car, with no way out.
Begs for someone to free him,
Simon tells him to shut his mouth.

DV got run over...

Now poor tn, they cannot find him,
Though upn's looked high and low.
They don't know he's gone to Canada
Where the guys buried him in the snow.

DV got run over by a Sentinel
Driving home from upn last night
Cascade Times all found it very funny
Now we're in charge, TS is on each night!


To the Tune of the Camping Favorite
Gluck, Gluck Went the Little Green Frog One Day
by Impala
Preferably this song is performed with a pair of glasses that are made to move outward at each line,
giving an eyeball popping appearance.
Song best performed with grimaces and soothing motions as indicated in verse

Ow ow said our little Blair one day
Ow ow said our cute little Blair
Ow ow said our little Blair one day
And his eyes squinched ow ow too

"There there" said Big Guy one day
"There There" said the buffed Big Guy
"There There" said Big Guy one day
And his hand patted "there there" too


We are the Muchkins/Talls
by Wolfshy

We are the munchkins/talls.
Just come on down the hall
We are here to save the day.
and make ol' Deno Pay.

We are a little Crazy.
But ol'Deno is a little hazy
For talking T.S. Off the Air
Which wasn't Fair..

We are the Muchkins/Talls.
Just come on Down the Hall.
We are here to take over
and make ol'Deno Roll over.

We Are The Muchkin/Talls
Just come on Down the Hall.


To the Tune of I'm a Lumberjack
by Sue Wells

Oh, I'm a Sentinel and I'm Okay,
I sleep all night and I work all day.
I chase bad guys, I protect Blair, I drive a hayseed truck.
On Wednesdays I was acting, moved to Mondays - just my luck.

second verse by TAE

Oh, I'm a Sentinel and I'm OK,
I sleep all night and I work all day.
I capture crooks, Blair totes his books We flirt with the Babe of the week,
But when I have a zone-out, that's when Blair will freak.


To the Tune of I wish I was in the Land of Cotten
by Cat

Oh I wish I was in the Cascade mountains
good times there are not for-gotten.
Get away, get away, get away, UP-N.


To the Tune of She'll Be Comin' Round The Mountain
by Cat

Jim's a comin' round the mountain at a run
Jim's a comin' round the mountain at a run
Jim's a comin' round the mountain
Jim's a comin' round the mountain
Jim's a comin' round the mountain at a run

Blair'll be runnin' from a psycho when he comes
Blair'll be runnin' from a psycho when he comes
Blair'll be runnin' from a psycho
Blair'll be runnin' from a psycho
Blair'll be runnin' from a psycho when he comes

Simon's smokes big cigars all day long
Simon's smokes big cigars all day long
Simon's smokes big cigars
Simon's smokes big cigars
Simon's smokes big cigars all day long


God Bless Petfly and Paramount
To the Tune of God Bless the U.S.A. by Lee Greenwood
by Wolfshy

If tomorrow all the things were gone
we'd worked for this year,
And we had to start again
With just all of us
we'd thank our lucky stars
to be helping again,
'Cause the show still stands for friendship
and they can't take that away.

We're proud to be a fan of The Sentinel
where at least we know we are a family,
And we won't forget the shows that died
and gave that right to us,
And we gladly stand up next to them
and defend The Sentinel still today,
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this show
God Bless Petfly and Paramount.

From the lakes of Minnesota
to the hills of Tennessee,
Across the plains of Texas
from sea to shining sea
From Detroit down to Houston,
New York to L.A.,and
All Around the world.

There's pride in every heart
and it's time we stand and say:

We're proud to be a fan of The Sentinel
where at least we know we are family,
And we won't forget the shows that died
and gave that right to us,
And we will gladly stand up next to them
and defend The Sentinel still today,
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this show
God Bless Petfly and Paramount.


To the Tune of Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer
by Annecat

Sandburg the small observer
Had a lot of curly hair,
And all his shampoo bottles
Filled the Loft right up the stair.

Sentinel Jim his partner
Started tearing out his hair,
"House Rules say get these bottles
in the bathroom NOW, dear Blair!"

Blair ran here, there, everywhere
Picking up his bottles
Shampoo, mousse, conditioner,
Uh-oh one’s just toppled!

Sentinel Jim the tidy
Threatened him in mock despair
"Next time I see one bottle
out here Chief, you’re bald, I swear!"


A Sentinel's Guide
to the tune of The Sound of Music's My Favorite Things
by Kate Fitzsimons

I am a police officer, I deal with the reckless,
The hopelessly stupid, the brainless, the neck-less,
I have supersenses with pitfalls galore,
My job is many things, but never a bore...

Chorus
When the bomb blows, when the car splats,
When the world goes mad,
I take a deep breath and I yell for my Guide,
And somehow it's not so bad

My Guide is a good man, his heart's in the right place,
And though his legs are shorter he keeps up with my pace,
Why he would want to I never will know,
But I'm sure without him my temper would blow...

Chorus

Before I met him my anger was biting,
My heart was weary, I never stopped fighting,
A problem for one sworn to serve and protect,
My captain was hard pressed to keep me from breaking perps' necks...

Right before I found Blair, my senses started working,
He said he was a doctor, but really was lurking,
The second time I met him, I shoved him into a wall,
But soon enough he took over my life; work, loft, and all...

Chorus

The trouble with having a Sentinel's senses,
Is that there's more to them than looking through fences,
A sensitive nose is a blessing and curse,
For just think how it makes your allergies worse...

When too much information has me half in a concussion,
Or I need to keep my secret advantage from public discussion,
No matter the problem, my Guide talks me down,
And as for obfuscation, he's the best in this town....

Chorus

To allow him on cases, he's now an observer,
And he's my own personal live life-perserver,
I think Sandburg likes that no Guide's life is slow,
And when I need help, he will never say no...

Chorus

Repeat first verse

Chorus

Chorus


To the Tune of I've Been Working on the Railroad
by Hephaistos

We've been working on a campaign,
All the live long year,
We've been working on a campaign,
To keep our Sentinel here,

Can't you see the TV flicker,
9 o'clock on Monday night?
We don't hear the Nielsens counting,
Something there ain't right!

Sentinel don't you go!
Sentinel don't you go!
Sentinel don't you go away-ay-ay!
Sentinel don't you go!
Sentinel don't you go!
Sentinel, please, please stay!

We're all watchin' TV on a Monday,
We're all watchin' TV on a Monday night,
We're all watchin' TV on a Monday,
The one show UPN got right!

(We're singing...)
U... P... N is pretty slow,
U P N is slow like es-car-got.
U... P... N you've got to know!
You're loosin' a really damn good show.


The Ballad of the Sentinel
based on The Ballad of Jed Clampett by Paul Henning
by Impala

Come and listen to a story about a man named Jim
A big ole detective, no one ever messed with him
Then one day his senses went off line
He had to get some help before he lost his mind.

For the senses that is, the heightened ones.

Well, the first thing you know Jim meets this hippie guy
Who tells him he's a sentinel as he looks him in the eye
Sandburg says, " Jim, I'm working on a diss...
I know how to help you, you gotta trust me on this!"

"Trust me," says Jim. "Two very scary words...coming from you."

Well now its time to say good-bye to Jim and all his friends
And they would like to thank you fans for kindly droppin in
You're all invited back again but to a different locality
We're having a new 5th season on Sci Fi Channel TV!

"The Sentinel" that is. Set a spell. Take your shoes off (at the door).
Ya'll write letters now, y' hear?


That Does Impress Us Much
to the tune of That Don't Impress Me Much by Shania Twain
by Wnnepooh

I've known a few guys who thought they were pretty smart -
But you've got obfuscation down to an art.

You are a genius - and those eyes drive us up a wall.
You're an ab-original know-it-all.

Oh-oo-oh, we know you're special
Oh-oo-oh, we know you're something else.

Okay - so you're an anthropologist

That does impress us much.
So - You got the brain and you have got the touch -

Don't get confused, we think you're all right,
And we're lining up so you can keep us warm at night

That does impress us much.

~~~~~~

I never knew a guy who carried a mirror in his pocket
And a comb up his Armani sleeve - just in case

And all that extra hold gel in your hair oughtta lock it
Cause Heaven forbid it should fall out of place.

Oh-oo-oh, we know you're special
Oh-oo-oh, we know you're something else.

Okay - so you're Detective GQ -

That does impress us much
So - You got the looks and you have got the touch -

Don't get confused, we think you're all right,
And we're lining up so you can keep us warm at night

That does impress us much

~~~~~

You're one of those guys who needs a sturdy driving machine
You make us take off our shoes before we step in the loft

I can't believe you still wear white socks...
C'mon Jim tell us - others are in the wash, Right?

Oh-oo-oh, we know you're special
Oh-oo-oh, we know you're something else.

Okay - so you're the most Sensitive Man in our Universe...

That does impress us much
So - You got special senses - ooh you've got THE touch -

Don't get confused, we think you're all right,
And we're lining up so you can keep us warm at night

That does impress us much

~~~~~

(And just for Simon fans - An alternate third verse)

You keep 'em in line, while never losing that old stogie -
You keep a tight reign on the Major Crimes' bull pen

I can't believe you still yell that much.
Just massage your personnel a little more, alright?

Oh-oo-oh, we know you're special
Oh-oo-oh, we know you're something else.

Okay - so you're the Captain...

That impresses us much
So - You got the badge and you have got the touch -

Don't get confused, we think you're all right,
And we're lining up so you can keep us warm at night

That does impress us much

~~~~

Don't get confused - we know you're alright!
And dreams of all of you will keep us warm at night...

You do impress us that much...

Okay - so you're God's gifts to women.... Whatever...

That does impress us...
