The Lyrics

Jeff Reuben: You thought you'd outsmarted me with your reply to this little conundrum by telling me to enter it in the X comp...BUT!! your ploy has failed because X is not the first letter of the titl.......D'OH!!!!!
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)

I have no idea what this parody is about because I don't go to this site's message board, but I'm a fan of TOS, the new lyrics flow well, and I see the subject as pure Dadaist surrealism, so all the better for you! Three fives.

(ABC-X) See above, and (at least it makes more sense than Sting's) was the best line.
