I Want a Li'l Karempelis for New Year's

I mentioned in the comments of this hilarious post by MaconDawg that I had tried to write some Dawg Christmas carols last year but had not been able to make them flow. This title was one that I really wanted to make work, but was unable to do so at the time. Fortunately, I had better luck this year, and present this as my Capitol One Bowl Poem.

For those who may not know who Kyle Karempelis is, he's a back-up back that we often want to see because his presence on the field means that we're up by a lot of points. And because his name is really fun to say, but mostly because of the "lot of points" thing. So here's hoping that we play so well that we get to see a little Karempelis for New Year's. With apologies to Gayla Peevey:

I want a li'l Karempelis for New Year's;
only a li'l Karempelis will do.
Don't want to play our starting stars all game;
I want to hear Karempelis get called upon by name.

I want a li'l Karempelis for New Year's.
I don't think other backs will mind, do you?
They won't have to do a game plan that's brand new;
just run like they've done all year, that's the easy thing to do.

I can see me now on New Year's Day reclining in my chair.
Oh what joy and what surprise when, amidst Huskers' demise,
I see a halfback hero scoring there.

I want a li'l Karempelis for New Year's;
only a li'l Karempelis would do.
Some Boo Gurshall the Intravenouses;
I want to see hip Karempelises,
for hip Karempelises can play, too.

Some say he's right when he's all that's left for us,
but I believe Karempelis is ambidexterous.

There's lots of time for him to get his hundred yards;
so play him there and run him there and give him his rewards.
I can see me now on New Year's Day reclining in my chair.
Oh what joy and what surprise when, amidst Huskers' demise,
I see a halfback hero scoring there.

I want a li'l Karempelis for New Year's;
only a li'l Karempelis would do.
Some Boo Gurshall the Intravenouseses;
but I want to see hip Karempeliseses,
for hip Karempelises can play, too.
