Parody Song Title:

"Wish You Were Here"

Parody Written by:

Merry & Pippin

The Lyrics

Pippin: Merry doesn't know this is coming. I could yet be in deep for this! This is to celebrate her return to parody readiness, and to let her know how much I love writing with her. It also highlights the frustrations as writing as part of a virtual team.
So, on these lyrics I dwell
Parody hell...
This guy’s in pain
‘Cos you’re so far afield
It’s so cold, e-mail
These miles form a grail
Caused this song to impel

When you get my tirades
You’re really the most
I’m gnashing my teeths
But, Mer, you just ap-pease
No, don’t ever change
Though we’re estranged*
My talk, in part, it implores
You’ve a neat soul, come of age

How I wish, how I wish you were here
Pair would fuse as whole
Whims we each could console
Let me be clear
Coming up with ideas profound
With you not ‘round
I’m so austere
Wish you were here...
* as in "removed from customary environment or associations", not the more common legalistic interpretation.

Touching write, Luke. You and Merry have something really unique: being able to write parodies with another author is something I've never been able to pull off. You two do it all the time and quite well at that. Looking foward to more submissions by the two of you.

This is a really lovely tribute Peregrin. Merry will be touched, I'm sure :) But....where is she ???

Pippin, I hope you're not estranged in more ways than one after Merry learns that you submitted a parody without her blessing. And thanks for sharing with us that collaborating is not always as easy as you two make it seem.

I knew something was afoot, but wasn't sure what it was - hadn't found time to come by here - thanks Mooey for alerting me.

Pippin sweetie, I AM touched - you put a big smile on my face. And you know my sentiments are the same. :-)

Hey Dave, WYWH rarely iliicits a really funny parody...usually a heartfelt Hallmark card (in a good way ;)). 555.

Is is a real treasure to have a relationship such as you both have, that results in such a creative, poetic endeavor! Merry will cherish it.

That was so tender, it made me misty-eyed. I look forward to one by the both of you as well. Pippin, 5's
Peregrin - April 08, 2008 - Report this comment
You are all too kind :) You're all too kind, even Mr One Nut.

Adagio, by the time you see this, there will be another, much more typical M&P effort for your edification.

I am SO glad, Pippin! I spotted one, I think, by the both of you. It just wouldn't seem like amiright without you two! :)

I have felt that way many times about Fiddlegirl, but I didn't see this because she didn't arrive for more than a year after this was posted; hence, it wouldn't have resonated so strongly. Thanks for the link. 555 hearts.
