The Spani-Man by Tim Tyler

He was a punster and a punter

He was a fisher and a sporting fan

A jokester who liked cards and Keno

He was the Spani-Man

He drove a VW bus to the river

He fished off Indian land

They even gave him a key for the gate

He was the Spani-Man

He was a kind and gentle soul

A good father to Trish and Dawn and husband to Diana

His friends numbered in the 100’s

He was the Spani-Man

He fell down in the ghetto one day

And from his back devised a plan

I’ve had enough, he said I quit

I am the Spani-Man

So he retired to mow the lawn

And take the bus to casino land

He was happy in his golden years

He was the Spani-Man

He died on April 14

He will be missed by all his fans

So raise a glass to our Ken

He was the Spani-Man
