Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Following through on Johnny D's suggestion to parody my own failure to come up with a birthday parody for Arwen last week.
Last Thursday,
Arwen's birth we all did celebrate
But alas, my parody is late
I missed the date --
‘Twas last Thursday

Struggling,
I'd hoped to achieve hilarity
But a blank page was reality --
That's how it was for many days

Ideas came so slow
Then they'd go -- they wouldn't stay
I tried many songs
How I long for last Wednesday-ay-ay-ay

Last Thursday,
Yes, by now it seems so far away
And my parody is very late,
(Though everyday is Arwednesday...)

Clearly, I'm no pro
I don't know what else to say
Her day's come and gone
How I wronged her last Thursday-ay-ay-ay

Last Thursday,
Yes, by now it seems so far away
Maybe I'll make Arwen's next birthday,
(If I get started, like, today)

...Hm-mm-mm-mm
Yes, today

I actually missed it too, since I didn't go online last Thursday. So you weren't the only one, Leo. Anyway...5-5-5. :)

Thanks Jeff, Kristof, Johnny D, Serafina, Stuart and birthday girl!
p.s., Stuart, I just wanted to start a fight on "THE thread..." about whether 'hump day' should be called 'Arwednesday' or 'Ash Wednesday' ;-)
