Again, all of these are examples of what at WABC were called "Toys" (a Ron Lundy inspired name). The engineers would move the lyrics of songs around. Ed Johnson was a summer relief engineer in 1973 at WABC/WPLJ and sent me this account back in 1997:

"I was a summer relief engineer for WABC/WPLJ for a large portion of 1973.
I ran the board for Dan, Bruce, and almost all the rest of the gang as I
ended up working most shifts.


I created some of the "toys" as Ron Lundy called them. These were trick
songs with changes made to the lyrics. I did the Kodachrome version
for Harry Harrison that took the word "crap" out of the lyrics. The most
fun was when I created "My Glove" in response to a challenge from Dan
which was a very suggestive parody on My Love, by Wings. I have originals
of many of these toys and copies of many of the bloopers that were
collected."
