Parody Song Title:

"A Synonym"

Parody Written by:

Adam Eccleshall

The Lyrics

What can take a lyric, that doesn't seem to rhyme,
Fool around with language, just to make it fit the line?
A Synonym
A synonym can
A synonym can
As it flips the words around, for a grander sound

What can take your poem, that's full of clumsy prose
Mess with the semantics to ensure the cadence flows?
A Synonym
A synonym can
A synonym can
As it alters sentence structure for a greater hook

A synonym makes all the little breaks
In the rhyming and the tempo
Sound just like the author meant to
(Although they sometimes really won't do)

What can make your diction, from another verse
Lexically similar, but rather more diverse?
A synonym
A synonym can
A synonym can
As it turns a phrase about so diff'rent words come out

This was so good! It's late at night, I'm ready to go to bed, decide to look at some parodies, and was pleasantly surprised! Kudos!
