The Lyrics

Guilty as charged.
DKTOS? Probably doesn't matter...
I like to write with computer
Hoping new words will take flight
Pacing is spotty with my song
Pacing is spotty
With my song
Writing ain’t too tight
With new words
Pacing is spotty
With my song.

I once had heard a good song
I think it was something really, really nice
And so thought I’d rewrite it
And add to it some spice
And opened my Mac to bring life to this special tune
I must say the groove was nice

Thinking of words with my cerebellum
Stringing out phrases I had heard
Pacing is spotty with this song
Pacing is spotty
With this song
I’m sure not going to
Rewrite my words
Pacing is spotty
With this song.

The words I jot are appropriate
I cherish them for I’m endowed
I think I’m a man of letters
At least the ones on my keyboard that I pound
And when my poetry is finished
Write how you you’re quite fond

Of it

Humming the song with throat
Please like the phrases I turn
Pacing is spotty with this song
Pacing is spotty
With this song
Sang it to my wife
And she said
“Pacing is spotty
With your song.”

I’m happy for decades of schooling
They said my skills were beyond compare
My words, they don’t need no retooling
Perfection can’t be repaired
I think my gift is in my breeding
Mom said the gardener was smart.

Writing brings feast from my fingers
Reading them should be tasty dessert
Pacing is spotty with this song
Pacing is spotty
With this song
I’m swelling with love, pride
With word blurts
Pacing is spotty
With this song.

Now that I’m untamed
Yeah, I’m rhythm impaired, sir
Pacing is spotty with this song
Pacing is spotty
With this song
So excuse me while I type
Inspired words
Pacing is spotty
With my song.

Fun song about the perils of trying to match the pacing of the original lyrics! I like the lines about your wife's critique :)
