The Lyrics

Can this really be the first Charles Aznavour parody on amiright? For those who don't know ze.. I mean the original: She - some of the pacing's not completely straightforward, 'cause Aznavour speeds up and slows down so very much.. but I'll probably try performing this one at some point, anyway
A may be ze letter before B
After which you will find C
And zen comes lettairs D and E
And F and G
H ees next, and I zen zere's J
If you look closely, you'll find K
L, M, N, O and P and Q
R, S, T, U, V, W

X - Sank God we're nearly at ze end
Oh, why, oh Y can't we pretend
That Z is really pronounced "zee"
..would be easy
See, if were were to call zed "zee"
Y, X and W and V
Would rhyme and so would U and T
..(not to mention You and Me)

S, and R and Q and back to P
O, N, M, L.. ementary
Zat before zat comes K
And zen J
I and H and G and F and E
Followed straight by D and C and B
And zen remember.. we're back to A

"Zee" maybe American and wrong
But EZR when writing songs
But eet's ze one lettair zat feels me up weez dread

Moi, I'll a deeferent way instead
I will not always call eet "Zed"
For when you end ze ABC
Ze alphabet, eet ends in
Zee.. Zee

Leave it to a Brit to give all us American "English" speakers an alphabet lesson in a foreign accent! I love it! :)

Did not induce any ZZZs but only 555s. Should be taught in US schools; would reduce ADHD drug use!
