When The Game Was Ours by Larry Bird and Magic Johnson with Jackie MacMullan

A forward who hailed from French Lick
That a Lansing kid thought was a hick
Great rivals in sport
On and off the court
But if they wrote this book I’m St. Nick

Strange Things Happen:  A Life with The Police, Polo, and Pygmies by Stewart Copeland

For Stewart the drums were his thing
Of world rhythms no greater king
But no matter how cool
Sitting high on his stool
He can’t hide his loathing for Sting

Star:  How Warren Beatty Seduced America by Peter Biskind

A world-famous actor and beau
Thousands of girls he laid low
Most amazing of all
Of those he did ball
He claimed to have porked Jackie O.
