Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

One last "thank you" to her who created, and added, so much of tomorrow's biggie; came up with better subs; caught many of my glitches (they *do* happen); and without whose support and cyber-companionship, I would never even have considered tackling, much less have finished, this monster.

Waaay under-rated, under-played, beautifully-voiced OS. Don't take TT's word for it -- Original video here.

You're my girl; you're ev'ry song I write
You're my girl; you're ev'ry bit I byte [1]
Other LAMBs see the scars of shepherds' plies [2]
But for me: entwined, we'll win the prize

See TT reach for a pun so poor
Come to his beach for the sun, and more! ;)
With your wit wrestling with mine
It's such a pow- ... -erful ... combine!

You're my girl; you are my night-ingale
You're my girl, whose sheer delight .. I hail
If our pair ceases to be
There'd not portend oth-er pair for me!

[Interlude -- turtle on piano, flippered though he be; fidlle on, well ... violin. The actual interlude duet is *very* pretty in OS -- *really*... Oh, go ahead, click the video -- it'll cost you a whopping 2 minutes 57 seconds of your time. Money-back guarantee.]

With your mind grappling with mine
Sometimes, each oth- ... -er, we ... malign!

You're my girl; you are my blight; dismay
You're my girl, spite ev'rything I say
If our team ceases to be
Then it's the end of the pair ....
No other pair...
No more of AIR ... for ... me!



[1] A little geek pun: one "byte" = 8 "bits" (Binary digITs, or is it BInary digiTs?) of data, 0 or 1

[2] A little private joke: FG = Liberal Arts Major, Bi-degreed (TT's impressed! He's not even pe-digreed!)

Gotta love that change from minor key to major partway through -- changes the whole tone, and makes for an exuberant ending. Go ahead, tell me that wasn't worth 2 minutes 57 seconds....

Beautiful OS, and a beautiful tribute to a great writer. (And no, I didn't think it was about me. Not for one nanosecond.) I hope more good parodies come out of this partnership, and 5s to you.

Timmy1000: Quite a compliment, to have captured such a beautiful OS. Thanks much.

blackjack21: Of many of us, I'm sure. Thanks much. (and clever caps/acronyming there! :D)

TJC: I *tried* to keep part of it in my shell, but it kept hanging out... j/k. Thanks for kind v/c.

metaphorsbwithu: The reason that turtles have such hard shells is that they're such softies inside.... thanks for v/c :D

Fiddlegirl: Huh? I don't remember any fights... heartfelt thanks for comment to heartfelt tribute.

Andria: Thank you very much. Might need a little break after all of the work that went into this one (you'll see, I hope), but I certainly hope for more, as well. Thanks for v/c.
