The Lyrics

Today, I thought I'd do something different when it comes to parody writing. I don't think anyone's tried this before, regardless,
Here's an attempt to transplant the lyrics of a song and fit them into another song. You might consider it to be a bold new
Experiment.

Gentlemen and Ladies, as you read (or sing) along with this parody, try to think of what song the lyrics have originated from. At
Any point in time while you're reading this parody, you might figure out the answer. It might come to you instantaneously, or it
Might take you a few read-throughs to get the answer.
Enjoy the parody, & let me know if you think you've got it!
Flying like a dove,
Just the two of us, never been strangers to love.
You know all the rules, baby, so do I,
Full commitment’s in my mind,
There’s none from other guys.

I’m never gonna give you up,
I’m never gonna let you down.
I would never run around
And try to desert you.

You know that I’m never gonna make you cry,
I wouldn’t dare to tell you goodbye.
And I’m never gonna tell a lie
And end up hurting you.

We’ve known each other
For many years now, it’s been so long.
Your heart’s got an ache,
You’re too shy to say,
But we both know ‘bout The Game
And we’re gonna play.

I’m never gonna give you up,
I’m never gonna let you down.
I would never run around
And try to desert you.

You know that I’m never gonna make you cry,
I wouldn’t dare to tell you goodbye.
And I’m never gonna tell a lie
And end up hurting you.

Never will let you go.

I want to tell you how I feel,
I want to make you understand.
And if you want to ask me,
Don’t ever tell me that you’re too blind to see.

I’d move Earth just to be together,
I want you to be here forever,
I’m never gonna give you up,
Please stay!

And I’m never gonna give you up,
I’m never gonna let you down.
I would never run around
And try to desert you.

You know that I’m never gonna make you cry,
I wouldn’t dare to tell you goodbye.
And I’m never gonna tell a lie
And end up hurting you.
Oh, oh!

(Not gonna give)
Not gonna give,
(Not gonna give)
Because I could not live –
Not live and be eternally alone.

Da da da da…
