The Lyrics

As it turns out, the Olympic athletes weren’t the only ones receiving acclaim last week. Tommy sends the following postcard message, which Fiddlegirl very much regrets having to relay…

Live-performance OS video here.

As I watched the Olympics
Ewes were on my mind
Their schmooze was on my mind
Women: trouble, whoa oh
Marriage: hurries (Moi? No!)
Ties, too soon, that bind

So I went to the farmer
Where the sheep all range
I must release these pangs
In the stable, whoa-oh
'Neath the surrey, (oh, oh!)
I got thrown again

I was stoked up this morning
Sim'larly incli-i-i-ined, and
Ewes had formed a line
Burst their bubbles? (No, no!)
Never hurry (go slow)
Love those moves, ovine

That barn was a-reelin'
Each sheep enthu-u-u-u-used by --
-- Way down deep-ish screw-ew-ews
Yeah, I got the lambs all "you know"
I had a groove on (Mo-jo!)
I did it all, to rave reviews

Then I woke up this morning
Looked around to find
All been in my mind
What a bummer (Oh, no!) [1]
Shrink is worried (psych-o)
Padded room is mine…

[1] No relation to Apolo Ohno, despite our several tribs to him recently. ;)

More ewe-phonious sounds from the house band of the Bow and Shell! ;D

Many right wing zealots refer to the politically indifferent majority as "sheeple". It appears you have indulged in yet another time-(honored?) procedure for generating this species. I am trying to visualize the result, should this genetic bridge be crossed.

Thanks, all!

OMR: And the ewes just *keep* phoning... it's getting ridiculous! ;)

Patrick: Eeek! Scary.... ;)

Mark "Starling" Scotti: TT assured me he was going away to get some help... You can't imagine my dismay at receiving the postcard! ;)

Double Ewes: And the bleat goes on... ;)

Phil: Now, don't be shy. I'm sure TT could, upon request, provide you with an extensive list of similarly-themed parodies, by various authors. It must be some kind of catharsis... or something... ;)

Old Man Ribber: As you can see by the ending, it was all ewe-phony. (I *kill* me!) ... Just worried about when their lawyer calls -- you know, Sues-a-phone-he-us -- down the tuba, we go....

Patrick: When you cross a sheep and a turtle, you get the Space Shurtle -- what an achievement!

Mark Scotti: They're screams of ecstasy, I assure you....
@ FG: Well, if *you'd" "help out" once in a while ... Besides, you're the one who needs help. I sent the postcard dismarch, not dismay. ;)

Ewephoric le Ewefornic™: Ya actually gonna sell a product by that name, or ya just makin' fun a' us?... WE would *never* make fun of anyone! (cough). .. besides, when a guy becomes so fornlorn....

Phil Nelson and Fiddlegirl: It's already been done, by TJC:
Obviously, the list needs updating, as TT has more than doubled that proud number :), but at that time in late 2007, there were 45 ewe-logies, with five other mulit-transgressors, and 23 authors who only "experimented" once. :-D

Meriadoc: TT is a proud member of the Sheepster's Union. (US-centric joke; one of the largest labor union in the US was called the Teamster's Union).
