"Joke Contest Ballad of Sadness"

A contest I entered with hopes held up high,

That I may be chosen to meet the Groban Guy.

My joke it was funny though maybe a bit long,

Still, I thought I could win, but alas I was wrong.

For another had chosen the same joke as I.

The moment I saw that, I heaved a great sigh.

I had entered the contest with hopes held up high,

then I saw in an instant my hopes fall from the sky
(figuratively speaking of coarse).

But I mustn't be dreary, or weary, or sad.

I'm seeing Josh in really isn't bad.

But the one little chance, to meet him and say,

"Howdy Mr. Groban. You're my favorite! Hooray!"

Well, all well, it's over... and now I can move on.

But not without saying:


....and something that rhymes with "on"

the end.
