The Lyrics

Along the same lines as "Brainfart" from a couple of weeks ago...
I make a little mistake
I hear the clanging of a gong
I feel the blood rush at the question
I get another answer wrong

Valencia is in Italy
Chelsea play at The Dell
H2O is plastic
I ain't doing very well
And no one's gonna help me
And everyone'll stare
'Cause I know the camera's rolling
And it's broadcast live on air

Made a right howler - just couldn't stop
Made a right howler - cocking it up
Oh, no t'was a right howler - they all laugh at me
It was a right howler - on prime-time TV

Too scared to turn my brain on
For the ones that I should know
A quarterback plays baseball
The Jets come from Chicago
Leonardo da Vinci
Cried "Eureka" in his bath
Two wrongs *can* make a right
Is what is on my epitaph

I made a right howler - my mind has gone wrong
I made a right howler - it's gone on too long
Oh, no t'was a right howler - unfortunately
It was a right howler - and on live TV

Guitar Sloo

I made a right howler - how stupid was it?
I made a right howler - do I feel like shit?
Oh, no t'was a right howler - don't you point at me
It was a right howler - shown on your TV

I made a right howler - my face is turning red
I made a right howler - wish that I were dead
I made a right howler - Denis Norden's here "It'll be
Alright on the Night", howler - Says will I appear?
And they're showing it again
And again
Showing fluffing
Showing fluffing
And they're showing it... aarrghh

Being an Aussie (and Acka-Dacka fan) as well as living in Blighty (hence I get the refs to Chelsea and Denis) I thought this was expectations of you are so high, Phil, I could only give you a 4 for humour. I'm such a s**t!! :-). Still, I think your stuff's great. ps What's a guitar sloo? Sounds disgusting....

>ps What's a guitar sloo? Getting a guitar solo wrong ;-)
This one could possibly have been funnier - I was originally intending to use all "real life" responses (such as this:­), but my patience ran out, and I made them up instead.

(Aust comp... hmm, this may be confusing for next week's Austrian theme) Great parody Phil, fine rhymes and your usual high standard, I second Kristof though. 5-4-5

Ha! I made the big mistake of reading Merry's comment first. Then I read the parody and though WYF, it's in friggin' Spain!!!! The I saw that Chelsea played at the Dell, and I thought Phil's off his rocker. Then I read the parody and felt really stupid ;-)

Good one Phil, great idea.
