The Lyrics

(Looking out the back window of a car, then front)
That's scenery of late, that am
Scenery of late it am, it am
I just look out of the window not afore
I'm not merry like I twern't before
And every where was that scenery (scenery)
I couldn't look as silly as I am (I am)
That's a late old scan that scenery
Scenery of late, it am.

Second verse clear as the first ;)

That's scenery of late, that am
Scenery of late it am, it am
I just look out of the window not afore
I'm not merry like I twern't before
And every where was that scenery (scenery)
I couldn't look as silly as I am (I am)
That's a late old scan that scenery
Scenery of late, it am.


------ Lead Guitar ------


That's scenery that rates, that am.
Scenery that rates it am, it am
I just looked out of the windows that's afore
And then I saw varied sights galore.
And every one had such scenery (citizenry)
I wasn't quite as silly, not I am (hot damn!)
It's not late old scan, that scenery
Scenery that rates, it am.

C-E-N-R-Y
Scenery (scenery)
Scenery (scenery)
Scenery that rates it am, it am
Scenery that rates it am!

Hee!

Works even better if you pronounce "Scenery" as "Senneree" --- but it still works the other way!

(SOTM) So clearly you've seen nearly every scenery you can see... 5's

(SOTM) This sounds like it could be about where I live Adagio, if I am interpreting this correctly. It's probably above my head though, which amuses me in an odd way. =)

(SOTM) I only have a passing knowledge of the OS, so I'll relearn it before I vote. Nice read, though.

Thanks DAK, Agrimorfee, Tim, Red Ant, Rick C. and Charlie.

Ant..if you're looking at your old place from the back window of a car, it is. :)

Looking this over and over and I got to admit I really don't get it. Nostalgia maybe?
Adagio - June 18, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Scathe and K1...."(Looking out the back window of a car, then front) " says it all...it's just a silly ditty, not deep at all (maybe I should stick to deep ones...lol)

Very good job of maintaining the light-hearted approach of the OS.

I've read this maybe a half-dozen times, and think I finally have a solution to your puzzle: The narrator is a foreign tourist who is still rusty on English idiomatic expressions and verb conjugations. Am I close?
Adagio - June 24, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Spaff and er...yea. If you want it to.

(SOTM) Recollecting those long car trips as a kid, I kinda see where this parody comes from. Kinda. I like the usage of 'Ye olde english' in the lyrics, but it might just confuse people more. Taking Spaff's narrative and my own experiences in the back of that damned VW Rabbit, I say good job. Tri-Fives.

(SOTM) ah, but never look back adagio, oh, and never look sideways either, oh, and watch the road - there's less of it left!

Ahhhh... relaxing. This brings back memories from early last year when I was filming from the inside of a car at the car wash for drama. Another adagio sedative strikes again!

C-E-N-R-Y, heh heh. Very witty odd... um... ness, Pat. Kinda deep and kinda silly at the same time.

Thanks Luke and 2nz. Luke...congrats! First time I've been called a sedative...lol. And 2nz, oddness? Guess that hasn't been used before either (just thought). :D
