  • Song Lyrics:
    Charles Nelson Reilly was a mighty man the kind of man you'd never disrespect.
    He stood eight foot tall, wore glasses, and he had a third nipple on the back of his neck.
    He ate his own weight in coal and excreted diamonds ever day
    he could throw you down a flight of stairs but you still would love him anyway
    yeah you know you'd love him anyway, oh!

    Charles Nelson Reilly won the Tour De France with two flat tires and a missing chain
    He trained a rattle snake to do his laundry, I'm tellin' you the man was insane
    He could rip out your beating heart and show it you right before ya died
    Every day he made the host of Match Game, give him a piggy back ride
    Yeah, a two hour piggy back ride
    Giddy up, Gene!

    Ninja warrior, master of disguise
    he could melt your brain with his laser beam eyes
    oh yeah
    oh yeahhhh
    he had his very own line at the DMV
    he made sweet sweet love to a manatee
    oh yeah oh yeah
    that was something to see I'll tell ya
    Charles Nelson Reilly sold his toenail clippings as a potent aphrodisiac
    He ran a four minute mile blindfolded with an engine block strapped to his back
    he could eat more frozen waffles than any other man I know
    Once he fell off the Chrysler building and he barely even stubbed his toe
    had a tiny little scratch on his toe
    didn't even hurt

    Charles Nelson Reilly figured out cold fusion but he never ever told a soul
    I've seen the man unhinge his jaw and swallow a Volkswagen whole
    he'd bash your face in with a shovel if you didn't treat him like a star
    'caus you can spit in the wind or touch Superman's cape but Lord knows you just dont' mess around with CNR
    no no no
    talkin' bout CNR

    I posted it from JibJab last night in the Forum. It still works.

    That would be interesting since it was posted on jibjab and Weird Al's youtube account at pretty much the same time. It wasn't like it was just some fan, it was Al himself.

    Maybe JibJab paid for a period of exclusivity in order to have it first.
