The Lyrics

I've submitted another to this tune today: this one was an interesting by-product. Read on...
While I was writing
Noticed something exciting
Don't you too? Haiku
Haiku
Haiku
Haiku
Haiku

Meter is spot on
Polysyllabic pattern
Ain't it cute? Haiku
Haiku
Haiku
Haiku
Haiku

Bridge in the middle
It fits the scansion as well
Ain't that fantastic?

No? Go to Hell

Let's write one neater
In 5-7-5 meter
Whoopidoo! Haiku
Haiku
Haiku
Haiku
Haiku

Very clever, Phil.

Royce - I have (as have a lot of others, I'll bet) considered writing "Aachoo, Aachoo, Aachoo, Aachoo, Aachoo", sort of "I can't stop sneezing, can't stop coughing and wheezing. Got the 'flu - Aachoo, Aachoo, Aachoo, Aachoo, Aachoo", but it's never seemed worthwhile: the MyDoom one, OTOH, was a colleague reading his email and bang! there was the chorus... this one came about because I noticed that the verse structure in this song is pretty much in haiku.

Very good, JD
Do you think we could enforce
Comments as haiku?
Johnny D - February 12, 2004 - Report this comment
Gee, I don't know, Phil
It might get old pretty soon
Or, it might catch on!
Royce Miller - February 12, 2004 - Report this comment
Phil--Well we can only hope that we're not the only two weird people in the world who have thought of making a sneezing song out of this; however, you have already got it pretty tightly written, it seems. keep smiling...

PS Good parody, Phil
Serafina - February 12, 2004 - Report this comment
Sorry Mari D: "Perfectly -- did original" is 8 syllables.
Phil Alexander - February 13, 2004 - Report this comment

The original
I mean the one by Abba
Goes something like this:

Love me or leave me,
Make your choice but believe me
I love you, I do (x5)

I canít conceal it,
Donít you see, canít you feel it?
Donít you too? I do (x5)

It was this rhythm
That inspired me to write this
Haiku parody

Please restore your votes;

Twenty-three straight fives

Extravaganza!
Ingeborg - September 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Great pacing/rhyme, reasonably funny lyrics--but "go to hell" seems a bit out of place in an otherwise upbeat, fluffy parody.

Refound this via your comment on Drewster the Rooster's parody of KISS' "I was made for loving you". Restoring some 5s.
