I Call Myself Ice
By ice rivers
Marion Morrison had a dog
Marion named his dog Duke
Marion Morrison went to Hollywood
Hollywood named Morrison John Wayne
Morrison didn't care for the name John Wayne
But he didn't like Marion Morrison either
So throughout his acting career Marion
On the sets and in the poker games
Morrison wanted to be called Duke
Which was the name he had given his dog
Before he became John Wayne.
Today I found out that I am older
Than Marion Morrison was when he died
And I thought he was an old man
And I call myself Ice and think I'm young.
I better giddyap, pilgrims.
Only Issur Danielovitch called Duke John
Whenever they worked together
Hollywood named Danielovitch Kirk Douglas
Kirk Danielovitch is alive today at 103
Maybe I've got some time left on the saddle
