The Lyrics

Each day's a new pun crisis
If I've no pencil, the muse chastises
Words and grammar come for me
Eerie rhymes none longed to see

If I weren't out o' mind
(If he weren't out o' mind)
I'd think up a better rhyme
If I'd stop wasting time
(If he'd stop wasting time)
I'd think up the perfect rhyme

'Tis the only way for me
For I'm a rime devotee you see
Sketch book's quite a potpourri
It's full of undies an' French gastronomy

If I weren't out o' mind
(If he weren't out o' mind)
I'd think up a better rhyme
With my grammar in chime
(With his grammar in chime)
I'd think up the perfect rhyme

A million songs are made since "Yesterday"
And we all know that leads to disarray
Golden Oldies, can't let them be
"No satisfaction" until they're parody

If I weren't out o' mind
(If he we weren't out o' mind)
I'd think up a better rhyme
If I were more sublime
(If he was more sublime)
I'd think up the perfect rhyme

Orange
Door hinge


© Peter Andersson. If you feel the need to dock me a point on pacing because the last two lines are each one syllable too long, so be it. As for "door hinge" I didn't make that rhyme up myself, I found it on the internet, my own alternative was "porn ranch" but I think that the band Spinal Tap has called dibs on using that phrase in a context where it makes sense. ;-)

Good OS and congrats for the first submission of it and, apparently, this band. It is funny you mention perfect rhyming when you imperfectly rhymed the chorus. Anyways, I do sometimes think that OSs are sometimes nothing more than parody fodder, but I do once in a while listen to a song without getting some idea for it. As for the "orange/door hinge" I had heard that one before I did mine but the rest were all brainstormed. Needless to say I didn't use rhymezone and didn't find any perfect rhymes. ;-)
