Coca-Cola is sponsoring a commercial program featuring various souls humming the tune to Donovan’s There Is A Mountain. Oh, please, spare me the grief! This purveyor of mindless tripe has become some sort of central ’60s touchstone. I can still recall one of our elementary-school parodies on one of his songs:

Jennifer, juniper, stuck up in a tree.
Jennifer, juniper, has to take a pee.
Watcha’ doin’, yes you know it.
To release it, you must show it.
Watcha’ doin’ Jennifer my love?

This is like, 5th grade. And are not these lyrics better than the original?
