In Their Words: “I blame Ray Stevens for this song. Had he not written all those crackpot masterpieces like “The Streak,” “Mississippi Squirrel,” and “Gitarzan,” I might have been able to peacefully live out my days on this earth without sullying my soul in the mire that is ‘the gimmick song.’ But here I am.” — Jim White
