Go Go Randi!

by: Eddie Scott

Lyrics

Way back in the fifties
From up north of the border
There came a new crusader for truth
When anyone unveiled a preposterous tale
He’d be the voice demanding some proof

If a trickster fraud or hoaxer
Tried to fool the public some way
Well before the con got going
The Amazing Randi was there

Go Go Randi!
We’re having some fun
Cause you’ve got all those frauds on the run
You have truly been amazing
But the job’s only just begun

Go Go Randi!
We’re counting on you
To do that skeptic thing that you do
You are the inspiration for the army that follows you

When people seek their fame making magical claims
They may find they’re being watched like a hawk
When Geller pretends that a spoon he can bend
Or Popoff fools a gullible flock

When psychic surgeons fake a healing
Or make other claims that are weird
They often face this forceful magician
With his truly magical beard

Go Go Randi!
We’re having some fun
Cause you’ve got all those frauds on the run
You have truly been amazing
But the job’s only just begun

Go Go Randi!
We’re counting on you
To do that skeptic thing that you do
You are the inspiration for the army that follows you

For over sixty years
He’s continued his quest
You could say he leads the Skeptic’s crusade

With his talks in many nations
Through his books and foundation
He keeps the Flim-Flam artists dismayed

For his fans in many countries
He stokes the Skeptical fire
When it comes to pushing reason
He’s the guy all Skeptics admire

Go Go Randi!
We’re having some fun
Cause you’ve got all those frauds on the run
You have truly been amazing
But the job’s only just begun

Go Go Randi!
We’re counting on you
To do that skeptic thing that you do
You are the inspiration for the army that follows you

Go Go Randi!
We’re having some fun
Cause you’ve got all those frauds on the run
You have truly been amazing
But the job’s only just begun

Go Go Randi!
We’re counting on you
To do that skeptic thing that you do
You are the inspiration for the army that follows you
We’re gonna follow you
We’re gonna follow you
