The Lyrics

Dear Jeff Reuben - I'm so excited about entering this parody into the ABC comps. Could you please let me know which one? (wink)..............OS available here
Don't think me unkind
to want to test your mind
and ALL the rules that you've defined
in case they need to be refined

Use due diligence Jeff Reuben
Your logic needs a bone to chewwww on

"The a a a, a the the the"s
the title of this parody
"The a a a - a the the the"
...so place it alphabetic-ly
"The a a a - a the the the"
I like that name a lot, you see
"The a a a - a the the the"
It's meaningless but not to me

ABC song competitions
do specify certain conditions
Put a title on submissions
OR they will not gain admission

What about this paro-dy? Huh?
It qualifies on all criteria

"The a a a - a the the the"
Does it start with A or T?
"The a a a - a the the the"
stuff homogeneity
"The a a a - a the the the"
Jeff will solve it - wait and see
"The a a a - a the the the"
(IF he's not irate at me)

oh......whoa......oh, oh, oh

"The a a a - a the the the"
Because it's such a splendid thing
"The a a a - a the the the"
...the ABCs it's entering
"The a a a - a the the the"
Does it start with anything?
"The a a a - a the the the"
(at least it makes more sense than Sting's)




just kidding Jeff :-)

A definitely articulate article of indefinite articularity. Here's a five. Here's the five. And he-ya'a the-a' third five.

I cracked up laughing on this Stu, just from the title. Since the entire title is articles, you need a special ABC contest for this one- "other". The real question though is this: if a contest has but one entry and you can't vote for your own song, do you win or lose? ;-)

Good one. Things that make you go hmmm, or just break things...

This article was definitive! 555

Nicely done but, I disagree about Sting's song not making sense. Well, at first it didn't but, ever since the lobotomy, it's all very clear. 555

Well, Mr Riddle, someone has to tell you, and it might as well be me, that the hyphen in the title sends this song straight to the "numbers and other characters" category. Bwahahahahaha, I guess you didn't thought of that.

OK, so that was just my HO, but anyway. :-)

thanks JD
thanks, Red Ant - d'oh! - I guess someone (whoops) didn't do their homework!
Thanks Tim, hmmm?
thanks Agri :-)
Again you make a very sound point, Rick, and your logic is impeccable - maybe Jeff will require your learned advice - thanks for the 5s
*strokes white cat* ah, Mister Andersson, but does it? Some other characters are disregarded (eg. the '(' was considered unworthy for the position of leading letter in last year's comp, because Jeff over-ruled my '(' entry - so is '-' higher up the pecking order than '('? - hmm, quite the conundrum, and one that Jeff and his team will soon be wrestling with) - oh, and thanks for the 5s :-)

Very clever. And I used to be a member of the AAA.

LOL! It qualifies for the round of X, of course =) You got me laughing (thanks for the heads up!)
stuart mcarthur - October 20, 2005 - Report this comment
thanks, Jeff - it truly would've been a lame exercise if you didn't ever read it - btw what does "the heads up" mean? (and can I seriously post this in the round of X? - that is a very lateral solution, oh wise one)
Jeff Reuben - October 20, 2005 - Report this comment
Giving me a heads up = making me aware of something. I think it came from soccer (or some sport with a ball). When the ball is coming towards someone's noggin and they're not paying attention (maybe they're on the sidelines flirting with the cheerleaders or something), you yell "Heads up!" to make them aware something's coming their way. Of course, if you yell it too late, you'll only succeed on getting them nailed in the face instead of the back of the head!

(disappointed) oh, I was thinking its origin might have been more Bill-and-Monica-ish...
