The Lyrics

Continuing my 'Sound of Music' series. Those yodels were hell to key in. Maybe more to come. If you have a problem with gay marriage, maybe you shouldn't read it, but even if you do, I think you'll enjoy it anyway.
THE MANLY DOTARD

High on a hill was a manly dotard
Lay-ee-yodel lay-ee-yodel lay hee hoo
Deep was the voice of that lonely dotard
Lay-ee-yodel lay-ee-yodel ooh

Odin was his name - folks had oft this quote heard
Lay-ee-yodel lay-ee-yodel lay hee hoo
Lusty and clear from his manly throat heard
Lay-ee-yodel lay-ee-yodel ooh

Oh ho lay dee yodel lee ho, oh ho lay dee yodel ay
Oh ho lay dee yodel lee ho, lay dee yodel lee ho lay

A mince in this prince as he wandered inferred
Lay-ee-yodel lay-ee-yodel lay hee hoo
His Maker on him had the wrong sex conferred
Lay-ee-yodel lay-ee-yodel ooh

Odin consulted a surgeon, got word
Lay-ee-yodel lay-ee-yodel lay hee hoo
Certain procedures could render him she-bird
Lay-ee- yodel lay-ee-yodel ooh

Under the knife went this lusty dotard
Lay-ee-yodel lay-ee-yodel lay hee hoo
All his assets he did have to float, heard!
Lay-ee-yodel lay-ee yodel ooh

He selected a pale pink coat, furred
Lay-ee-yodel lay-ee-yodel lay hee hoo
Then Odin went back to his friends to gloat, heard!
Lay-ee-yodel lay-ee yodel ooh

Soon all his friends from near and remote heard
Lay-ee-yodel lay-ee-yodel lay hee hoo
What have you done? You look totally absurd!
Lay-ee-yodel lay-ee yodel ooh

Odie lady! Odie lady!
Odie lady-ee! Odie lady-ee!
Odie lady!

Felt like a girl in her pale pink coat, furred.
Lady Odie, lady Odie, lady ho.
Had a duet on her brand new boat, heard!
Lady Odie, Laddie Eddie ooh!

Soon they were wed with a nuptial rote-word
Lady Odie, laddie Eddie. ho ho ho
Blushing big bride with her best beau Edward
Lady Odie, Eddy-Odie ooh!

Happy are they, Lady Odie and he oh
Lady Odie, lady Eddie, lady ho
Want to adopt and become a trio
Lady Odie, laddy Eddie ooh!

Odie lady! Odie lady!
Odie lady-ee! Odie lady-ee!
Odie lay Eddie lay, Odie lay, Eddie lay, Odie lay Eddie lay
Odie lady, Eddie laddie oh
Whew!

As a SOM fan I always liked this OS and I think you did a fantastic job with it.

Much appreciated, Porfle, esp. coming from you. There are a couple of minor cock-ups (no pun intended) hidden in there but it was a tough one to tackle so on the whole I was pleased with it.

In light of Trump the Dotard...I think it's time for you to re-write and recirculate this little ditty. Do it right and it will be a viral sensation!
