Lynne McAennyl

The Lyrics

To be sung to the tune of the song Biko by Peter Gabriel, with thanks and apologies to composer and performer, and honour to human rights martyr, Stephen Biko
SIJO ON SIJO -

Back in seventy seven, - I first learned about Sijo.
A form of po’try from Korea; I thought I'd give it a go.

Oh sijo, sijo, o-oh write sijo, sijo

Oh sijo, sijo, o-oh write sijo, sijo

Constructed in three sentences, divided into two lines.
The beauty of the Sijo is, it doesn't have to rhyme.

Oh sijo, sijo, o-oh write sijo, sijo
Oh sijo, sijo, o-oh write sijo, sijo

Syllable counts aren’t rigid, for any sentences you write -
Fourteen, fifteen or sixteen - whatever you choose is alright.

Oh sijo, sijo, o-oh write sijo, sijo

Oh sijo, sijo, o-oh write sijo, sijo

[Repeat refrain to fadeout]
