The Lyrics

If you can't figure out the pacing, take my word for it, it really works.I know alot of you understand the frustration of getting criticized on pacing when you KNOW how it goes. A littleartistic license on the grammar, though, viva poetika!
Esperanto, la united stato census
proponi pli alta fences are en ordoni nun
es difficulto kompreni koni rezoni
objeckto bonvolu kapabla doloro

havi vidi la baseball diamonds, knabo?
ili venki own game kapabla
de costa rica de cuba de dominicabla
NBA es ming, ginobili,
turkoglu, peja, kaj nowitzki
sed sola amerikana estas kobe rapisto!

Esperanto, amerikano malnova
ne tasko ne verko, konduki freneza
kaj freedom, de plum gone dankon john ashcroft
via posteno 911 patriot akto

energio prezo en la vintro tempo
minuto men gardi mexico
el karto verda diferenci civitano

lernejo lango ebonico?
estas ne komika korea en LPGA?

Esperanto, kial dont vi akcepti census
konduki down fences, malfermi la gate
poto estas melto, kial dos rainbow da homo
vi better sendi ACLU (sendi ACLU)
vi better sendi ACLU.........al UCLA

This has gotta be a first--an Esperanto parody. I believe I get the gist, and it is really episodically funny. Congrats.

I know the song, pacings excellent, but as to the rest I'm totally lost. You should translate...please?

Awesome - as another non-Esperanto-speaker, there's some lovely obvious meanings that jump out at you even if you can't get every word. Have you recorded this one, John?

What I was able to get was pretty funny. But there are a few Yiddish parodies on the site that are still better.

hey John, don't have your email address handy or anything, but I didn't post the parody you asked me to skip this morning. I didn't think there was anything wrong with it, and you should go ahead an resubmit it.

I don't speak much Esperanto, but I am learning it on duolingo.com. For those of you who do not understand the words to this song you should go there.
