The Lyrics

I don't speak English like the natives might
I don't write it like they'd do
And you can see it in my lyrics when I write
I'm a Finn on an Anglophone site

See me writing 'nother parody
A dictionary by my side
And thesaurus just for checking all the rhymes
I'm a Finn on an Anglophone site

O-oh, I'm an alien
I'm linguistic alien
I'm a Finn on an Anglophone site.
O-oh, I'm an alien
I'm linguistic alien
I'm a Finn on an Anglophone site

Pacing is a thing I find so difficult
and how to get the rhyming right
Pronunciation is an issue on itself
What they say is not always what they write

O-oh, I'm an alien
I'm linguistic alien
I'm a Finn on an Anglophone site.
O-oh, I'm an alien
I'm linguistic alien
I'm a Finn on an Anglophone site

Irony, parody can lead to notoriety
You could end up as the only one
Feedback and cricticism are good in this society
At night a candle's brighter than the sun

Takes more than pacing rhymes to make a song
Takes more than a parody for fun
check out for Finnish phrases, avoid them when you can
A pacing song will walk and sometimes run

If, lyrics maketh song as someone said
it's bit difficult to me
Finnish is so diff'rent from Germanic tongues
But I try no matter how hard it's for me

O-oh, I'm an alien
I'm linguistic alien
I'm a Finn on an Anglophone site.
O-oh, I'm an alien
I'm linguistic alien
I'm a Finn on an Anglophone site

You keep writing, Susanna, and flying the flag for Finland! Considering English is not your first language, you are a remarkably clever parodist. 555

For someone bewailing her lack of fluency in English, it doesn't show in THIS parody. Keep up the great work--fives all round!

Awesome for a second language parody. As Dylan once said, and I misquote, " We ain't seen nothing (yet) from this mighty Finn" 555
