John Goodman's Monologue

Mighty Mack.....John Goodman
Elwood Blues.....Dan Aykroyd



John Goodman: Thank you! It's a treat to be back here at Studio 8H, hosting this show for the sixth time! The last time I was here, I became a member of the 5-Timer's Club, and, let me tell you, life as a 5-Timer is.. good! You don't have to learn any lines, you don't even have to show up until Saturday! But tonight, I've become a 6-Time host, and am being upgraded into a club so exclusive, so elite, that I can basically do anything.. I.. want. And this is what I want to do. Put on this sacred uniform, and introduce a friend of mine, without whose sanction, this would not be possible! [ puts on dark shades and a hat, the Blues Brothers look ] Ladies and gentlemen - from City, Illinois.. Mr. Elwood Blues!

[ Elwood Blues walks out ]

1, 2, 3, 4!

Mighty Mack & Elwood Blues:
"Well now when I get the blues, gonna get me a rockin' chair
Well now when I get the blues, gonna get me a rockin' chair
When the blues overtake me, gonna rock right away from here

Now when I get lonesome I get on the telephone
Now when I get lonesome I get on the telephone
Well, I call my baby, tell her I'm on my way back home

Well, flip, flop & fly
I don't care if I die
Flip, flop & fly
I don't care if I die
Don't ever leave me, don't ever say goodbye

Give me one last kiss; hold it a long, long time
Give me one last kiss; hold it a long, long time
Well, hold that kiss 'til I feel it in my head like wine

Well, here come my baby, flashin' a new gold tooth
Well, here come my baby, flashin' a new gold tooth
Well, she's so small she can mambo in a pay phone booth

Well, flip, flop & fly
I don't care if I die
Flip, flop & fly
I don't care if I die
Don't ever leave me, don't ever say goodbye

Lou Marini!

Well, like a Mississippi bullfrog sittin' on a hollow stump
Well, like a Mississippi bullfrog sittin' on a hollow stump
I got so many women I don't know which way to jump

Well, flip, flop & fly
I don't care if I die
Flip, flop & fly
I don't care if I die
Don't ever leave me, don't ever say goodbye."


John Goodman: We've got a great show! Dan Aykroyd is here! The Tragically Hip is here! So, stick around, we'll be right back.
