Wrote Another Song for You….

So sometimes I come up with words of my own to someone else’s song. I’d like to put all the blame on Weird Al Yankovic and Doctor Demento (Google them, kids, if you’re younguns), but I’ve done it since I was two. Anyway, this foolishness is usually just for my own amusement and I don’t inflict these things on others very often. But now I have a blog! (And a weekly post to fill…)

I put up a song a while ago, I’m Not on Facebook. That was based on 10cc’s classic number one hit from 1975 I’m Not in Love. The following is based on a different tune, but from roughly the same era. If you know it, the title probably will give it away. I stay as close to the rhythm and rhyme scheme of the original as I can.

The first person who guesses the song that inspired this nonsense wins ten T of V points! (Which doesn’t mean anything yet, but someday—who knows?)

I Lost on Jeopardy*: WordPressin’ 6

*”I Lost on Jeopardy” is a parody song by Weird Al Yankovic. YouTube it.

Click here for WordPressin’ pt.1; here for pt.2; here for pt.3; here for pt.4!

(Where is pt. 5? Wouldn’t you like to know? Maybe I censored it because it struck too tender a nerve. Maybe I’m superstitious about the number 5. Am I commemorating the week I forgot to post a WordPressin’ article by skipping the number? Or did I forget my numbering in my haste to get a new post done, and then enter all this nonsense later to try to cover? Why don’t I just change the number to five instead of doing all this? I don’t know. Stop bothering me!)

So lately I’ve found myself pressed for time and pressed for words. I neglected to post a “WordPressin'” last week. In spite of that, I vow to press on. Let me apologize to my dear, loyal readers. Both of you. (Haha, self-deprecating humor. I exaggerate. I have at least six loyal readers.) Pressin’ on, allow me to impress you.

In the class, we’ve begun our final group project. Kind of. My team and I all agree that there is a final group project, and that we have been assigned to each other to get it done, and that at some point work will be applied to the project, and that’s where we’re at right now.
