It was in lovely Kerhonkson, our own Brigadoon
One summer evening under a silver moon,  
Looking for hot dogs I began to meander
And then I ran into Danny Freelander.
 
I knew right away he was one of a kind
Especially when a hot dog he did help me find.
In short, let me say he's a gift from the Lord
So deserving of the Kinor David award!
