King of Mussolini

I’ve been going through old video tapes and transferring them to DVD and then to mpeg so I can edit them and put pieces on here.  It takes a lot of time, but up until the editing part it’s all a “get it going and leave it alone” endeavor, so it takes up little of my own time.

I’d completely forgotten about this song those two 7th graders made up about me.  (That second verse is making fun of my Boston accent that still comes out with certain words).  It was my 4th year of teaching and I was still at, and enjoying, the first school I taught at. 

The kid who is singing the verses, not just the chorus, also happened to be the son of two people I went to high school with.

Anyhoo, here is the world debut of “Big Papa Rossi”
