The Lyrics

A followup to my previous post "Gnats Stang; Gnus Sung"
If you're the type not vexed by "Joy of Lex",
Get your fix by fax or telex or Express
The best letter is rated 'XX'.
It's boxed in the space before 'Y',
Sly x-axis, it seldom rides high,
Best letter is rated 'XX'.

Now there's… No 'x' in Nixon
No 'xx' - Exxon
No 'x' Al, knit on; toot no tin klaxon
None Xmas, Sam, xenon
"Laid Fixes" - sex, if dial
Sex-aware era waxes
Six axons, no x-axis.
Mix a maxim. No 'x' - a Saxon.

Just flex to the nexus of this text,
Next exit past Texas and New Mex,
Best letter is rated 'XX'.
The best jest is "Xerox, O Rex."
Best letter is rated 'XX'.

Not 'UF', not on futon!
No 'yarn' in rayon
Un nu? No! it's a bare-era bastion
Lapse - porno on ropes, pal
Llama - nix in a mall
Sex at my gym taxes
Six at my gym? Taxis!
No rod-lid dildo, Ron. Sex-elf flexes.

Get relaxed with the moxie of this text,
More exotic than Texas or New Mex,
The letter that ends “Joy of Lex”,
That letter is rated 'XX'.
The best letter is rated 'XX'.

Amazing, GioLio! Sui generis and tour de force. Got my kicks. I can't begin to imagine how you invent your palindromes and then integrate them into a coherent lyric. I wish I could travel your way on the highway that's the best. Just reading it should thwart Alzheimer's. Big plus: For once, I know the OS. 5s, of course.

Rubbish! Nothing more that tongue twisting trash meant for gents that like perversion. One wonders if GioLio is the alias for Mr. John Barry as the OS artist credit is one of his favorites oft repeated! If so, for shame. And Mr. Silver? No doubt a dubious supporter. Use a bit o' common, man. This routine must end at some point.

@Top Hat:
1. There is nothing doubtful or suspicious about me or my support. GioLio and I prefer working with the classic originals. I enjoy his intellectual convolutions; apparently, he likes my eccentric simplicity.
2. I was present at the creation of the sobriquet "GioLio" for GiorGio ConigLio.
3. I believe your last comment a few weeks ago was also negative and contained the word "rubbish."
4. Your bar for "perversion" is terribly low.
5. This is not a conventional parody. "Are we not drawn onward to new era?"

@TopHat; It should be obvious that this song is far more directed at the "Joy of Lex" than at the "Joy of Sex". Checking my blogpost, you'll see that creative nonsense is my primary goal. Had real titillation been important, I would have used more scurrilous palindromes like "Too hot to hoot" or "T.Eliot nixes sex in toilet". Alas, neither sort of joy seems to appeal to you. @Al S; Right. I enjoy your straightforward eccentricities. Thanks for honoring my convolutions (did you actually mean "ineffectual"?)
