Talking My Fave

My vote goes for the most, IMHO, convoluted theme. "F-Troop"! Take into consideration the following lyrics. Try to find a longer, more convoluted premise.

The end of the civil war was near and quite accidentally,
A Hero who sneezed, abruptly seized retreat and reversed it,
To Victory.

His medal of Honor pleased and thrilled his proud little family
While pinning it on, some blood was spilled and so it was planned he'd command,

Where Idian fights are colorful sights and,
Nobody takes a lickin'
Where paleface and redskin both turn chicken

When drilling and figthing get them down,
They know their morale can't droop.
As long as they all relax in town before they resume,
With a bang and a boom...F-Troop!

...It starts out with the story of Wilton Parmenter, then cascades into the habits of everyone at ol' fort Courage.
One could argue there are other, longer and more convoluted themes in their original form ie: "Hogan's Heroes" or "Bewitched" which had truly awful lyric include versions,but I've never found one as long as F-troop.
