Wally: Fly high Duluth, your spirit has no measure.

Char: Fly high Duluth, the northland is your treasure.

,b>Announcer: Today on Duluth Live: Joyce Crandall from the Chamber of Commerce with some post holidays bargains. And Dr. Paul Peterson for some news you can use to beat those pesky sniffles.

(Darren joins the band standing next to Wally)

Darren: Welcome to Duluth Live. Great job guys. I'm Darren. This is Char and Wally Hammerlink and they wrote us a great new theme song. I'll let you guys finish up while I join my partner. Take us home.

Wally: Yeah, we got it all right here.

Char and Wally: Fly high Duluth.

Joyce: Great stuff guys. What a fun group! That's a really catchy new theme.

Darren: Absolutely, absolutely. They all live right here in the area. And I got to say I like this song a lot better than the old theme. Now Joyce I understand...

Wally: (continues singing) Fly high Duluth, on the wings of emotion.

Darren: They are not done yet. A little bit more I guess.

Char: Fly high Duluth, your spirit is the potion.

Wally: People tryin', buyin'

Char and Wally: Kids spyin', lyin', old folks lyin', dyin'

Wally: Oh, we got rebels making love in the streets everyday!! Yeeeeah!

Char and Wally: Fly high Duluth! (theme song ends)

Darren: All right, that's great. Are you on the market for some post holiday bargains......(Agressive hard rock guitar riff plays, resumes the theme song) Oh, there's more, we got a little more I guess...

Wally: I know a little place called Duluth town, went down there by Mexico way, the women are loose and the booze is cheap...

Char and Wally: So if you need good lovin' then you know you gotta say Fly high Duluth!

(back to Joyce and Darren)

Darren: All right, great stuff guys.

Joyce: Yeah, maybe a little long.

Darren: They are not done, they are not done I guess...(hard rock beat continues)

Wally: I'm Wally Hammerlink and this is my she\tiger mate for life Char. Fly high Duluth! Feel the achin' and a-quackin' in my old dungarees for a big legged woman named Sally Sleezle Geezle, she only need one look at my old trouser weasel and I throw myself down on sweet charity oooooohhhhh!!

Char: Fly high Duluth!

(Joyce and Darren sit with stunned looks on their faces)

Wally: Oh, oh, I see my main man Stack Sanchez a-come my way and I think his axe has something to say about this.

(Stack Sanchez breaks into a screeching electric guitar solo while Darren and Joyce look on with a mix of boredom and anger)

Char: Let's bring it way down guys, bring it way down.

(the fast rock beat changes to a slow menacing rock beat, Wally has a bottle of Jack Daniels on his hand)

Wally: Sssshhhhhh! Now let me kick it out to you people like this. See, we got a lot of crazy stuff going on in this country today. We're out there dying in the streets EVERYDAY!! YOU DIG!! Hit me!(1 drum beat)

Joyce: He's still going on?

Darren: Yes, it is, yes, it is.

(Wally takes a swig of the JD bottle)

Wally: OH, THUNDERBIRD SPIRIT!!! I see old glory over on the horizon!! I see the tattered standard of an invading army and their numbers ARE LEGION!!!

(Wally takes a monster gulp of JD and finishes the whole bottle, Joyce and Darren wait helplessly)

Wally: Hit me two times! (two drum beats)Mama, don't you point that gun at meeeee! I said PLEEEEEEESE MAAAAAMA!!. Don't you point that gun at meeee!! Because my loooove is consecrated in the blooood of the APAAAAACHE NAAAAAATIONS!!!! OH, DULUUUUTH, YEAH!

(Darren, Joyce and the show's coordinator argue about the performance that they're witnessing, Wally continues)

Wally: Now wrap your heads around this!(drummer breaks into a bombastic pull out all the stops drum solo, Joyce and Darren are reading magazines. At the end of the drunm solo more stunned looks)

Wally: Everyone give it up for my man Freddie Fingers on the thunder machine! Yeah! Fly high Duluth!(Joyce gets up and stretches, Darren lifts his pants leg and examines his knee)

Char: Fly high Duluth!

Wally: Fly high Duluth!

Char: Fly high Duluth!

Everybody: Fly high Duluth, Fly high Duluth, Fly high Duluth, Fly high Duluth!(faster rock beat resumes, Joyce and Darren sit down and laugh)

Wally: Tell me what we're doing now!

Everybody: Fly Hiiiiiiiiiiiiigh!!(music reaches climax)

Wally: I can feel it! WAAAAAAAAAAAYYY DOOOOOOOOOOWN IN MY LOINS!!, my loins!, my loins!, my loins!

(more bored looks from Joyce and darren)

Everybody: FLY!, HIGH!, DULUTH!

Wally: DULUTH! DULUTH! DULUTH! FLY HIGH DULUTH OH, YEEEAH!! (Stack smashes his guitar to pieces into the floor and Freddie kicks and dismantles his drum set in real The Who fashion)

Darren: Ok, that's our show for this morning. I like to apologize to all our guests cause we're out of time.

Joyce: Bye, bye now.

Darren: Maybe no band next time.

Joyce: I don't know, they were a lot of fun.
