The Lyrics

As a librarian I know once said: In todayīs written language, there are too many suffixizings. ;-)
When I look back upon some songs
Itīs always with an argus eye
I sometimes end the words to sly
For every word prolonged an inch
No matter pi or grr or tinge
Thereīs a reader that will flinch
Itīs a...
Itīs a...
Itīs a...
Itīs a fix!
Its suffix!

Every zing I ever wrote
Every word-prolonging dot
Every pacing-making out
Every ing youīll ever spot
Itīs suffix!

At school they had a spelling bee
Some nerd won, I came eightyfree
I never did suckseed
Too many words I ended y
Like kosher, flash or going bi
And to "thing" it makes some cry
Itīs a...
Itīs a...
Itīs a...
Itīs a fix!
Its suffix!

Every word of mass distract
Every second after prime
Every hyphen I contract
Every birth of a new rhyme
Itīs a fix!

Readers, forgive me, I try hard to make it
Submitted a new song, then saw a "teh" in it
Wherever thereīs comas, I probably had one
Grammar, it fools me, verbs are worse than nouns
But I sometimes get it wright

So when I look upon my zings
Itīs always in a state of fear
I always need a six-pack beer
For every word in my matrix
There are some abbr-rhyming tricks
And some faults therein the mix
Itīs a...
Itīs a...
Itīs a...
Itīs a fix!
With suffix!

Every time Iīm going/dutch
Every spell-check surgery
Every rhyme-supporting crutch
Every transwordīpostropheeee...
Itīs a fix!

Etc

No, there really *aren't* too many suffixes. Freedom of morphological rules is something I really love about English. To quote Steven Pinker, which I do whenever at all possible, "Even more impressive, the output of one morphological rule can be the input to another, or to itself: one can talk about the unmicrowaveability of some French fries or a toothbrush-holder fastener box in which to keep one's toothbrush-holder fasteners" (The Language Instinct, 122). Now how is that not absolutely awesome? Sorry for not voting, I don't know the song at all. Just wanted to add a Pinker quote ;-).

Thanx for reading it anyway and commenting upon it. I donīt expect many votes for this one. PSB seems to be considered a bit obscure among the regulars here. There are only two parodies to their songs, and they are both mine. Theyīve been big in Sweden ever since "Domino Dancing". Hmm... now thereīs a malcy idea again ;-)
