"A Melting-Pot Idiom"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

Often kibitz in a melting-pot idiom. . .
Use words that end in "ation"--that is francophilia,
"Ciao," a salutation from Sardinia,
"Auf Wiedersehen," which hails from Westphalia.

To greet you, I will say "Wilkommen,
Bien-venidos-venue, welcome"
And, of course, universal morpheme, "OK!"
Liberally from lingos I borrow. . .
"Hasta mañana," "till tomorrow."
Spanglish, Franglais, Yinglish, too.

While I plotz in polyglotz America,
My tech-support guy, "Sam," sounds like India.
I know that he can't be from Alabama,
Because he has got a too good grasp o' grammah.

"Achtung!" I will use for "attention!"
A French word not used by the menschen
(Unless they are Alsace-Lorrentian).
"Adieu, amigo--¿comprende?"
"No way, Jose!?
Liberally from lingos I borrow.
Ain't learned any Aleut.

Often kvetch in a melting-pot idiom.
One nation with polyglot media,
Information idioglossia.
We call in neologistic interlingua.

If they need to get your attention
In crossover alien nation,
They just use the phoneme phenom of "OK."
Television frequently borrows
From a field that never lies fallow.
¿Qué pasa, pal? Schoen bist du.

Congrats on another Green Day parody John A Barry--I love this diversity of genres from you of late. . .though I must say you really pulled a fast one on me here, talk about language barriers:)
