I happen to love the song. I think it's a wonderful story song, on par with Michael Knott's "When She's Gone." Both songs are full of wonderful narrative gaps that make for good, good storytelling.
Give "The Coming Home Party" a listen and see if Tiny Tim's own scathing assessment is correct. And give the Lifesavers' "When She's Gone" a listen for good measure.
