A blast from the past (a song about Raghu)



     From the popular musical, "'Goo' means 'shit' in Hindi!,"* offering a slightly fictionalized account of the life of Raghu P. Mathur in song:

You Did a Raghu Thing (2000)

What’s that stuff across the floor?
What’s that shit upon my door?
What’s this memo over here?
And that crap right under there?

You did a Raghu thing
You did a Raghu thing
You put that shit up on my door
You did a Raghu thing

You been lyin’ like a rug
You been dressin’ like a thug
What’s that guff you’re givin’ me?
So you bought a Ph.D.**?

You did a Raghu thing
You did a Raghu thing
You put that shit up on my door
You did a Raghu thing

I saw you grabbin’ someone’s plant
Saw you grinnin’ at the bank
You put a stink into my world
Don’t you point that thing at me

You did a Raghu thing
You did a Raghu thing
You put a stink into my world
You did a Raghu thing

Good people tellin’ me
Also Glenn is tellin’ me
Everybody listen up!
Everybody listen up!

You did a Raghu thing
You did a Raghu thing
You did a Raghu thing

*I looked it up. I had referred to Mathur as "Goo," an allusion to Mr Magoo, for quite some time without realizing the meaning of "goo" in Hindi. What a bonus!
**Yes, I know. An Ed.D. isn't actually a Ph.D. But who wants to sing about Ed.D.s?
