A song for BS Johnson

The Pernice Brothers, a band I quite like a lot, has a song called BS Johnson on Live a Little, their latest LP (which I have yet to hear). The chorus goes:
You were gone by 42
There'd be no rigid form for you
Jammed into a plot where you never would fit
A tiny manuscript with a hole cut in it.
You can hear how good it is on the band's AV page. The LP also reworks Grudge Fuck, one of Joe Pernice's best songs, written when the band was The Scud Mountain Boys. The original is much better.
