Almost certainly unused, in too bad taste even for NewsRevue.
Some good lines in it though.
Postscript: false memory. My submission letter of 26 November 1995 indicates that this one had been used 7+ times – i.e. in more than one run; perhaps several.
My cata-log indicates that it was originally written on 16 May 1995.
So not too bad taste for NewsRevue – not in the slightest. Whatever was I thinking when I wrote the above note?

Say it soft, and its a brand of corn oil.
Won’t go through you as fast as,
Maria from West Side Story is a nice song in its own right:
