The Lyrics

The first stanza was written in honor of World Oceans Day - June 8. The second stanza is of undetermined origin. Of note, le faon*, in French (pronounced with 'o' silent to rhyme with dans, banc, temps or sang) refers to the young deer, male or female. Like most French animal-words, it is invariant for gender, a use which seems surprising and illogical to English-speakers.
(D'EAUX-RAIN-tsunaMI)
D’océan – c’est maritime
Ray – shark’s friend beneath the sea
Miami – on Biscayne Bay
Fargo – far as you can be
Seoul - near coast on River Han
L.A. -Pacific shore metrop.,
Tij-U(w)an(n)a go there, man
Bordeaux - vineyards where we'll stop.

Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, Ti, Do !

(COCK-AND-BULL)
Doe - a mom on whom stags dote
Ram - a husband for the Ewe
Meal – game-hunters eat them all
Faon* (French) – gendered male, that’s true!
Sow - a female pig that's tame
Laugh - this story's cock-and-bull
Teat - cow's udder, all the same
Ode - odd anagram for 'Doe'.

Doe, Ram, Meal, Faon, Sow, Laugh, Teat, Ode !

This would make an amusing recording. I just happened to look back at my parody of Bob Dylan's "The Times Are A-Changin'". I noticed that in October of last year you wanted to perform this song. I have granted blanket permission to anyone who wishes to perform any of my parodies in public. I only request that if you record it, I would like to have a copy. If you make any money, send me some. Feel free to modify the lyrics if they are outdated or to accommodate some new issue or story in the news. I am right-wing, conservative, libertarian, so if you take a different stance in your version, you can take credit for that part. A fellow who calls himself "Professor Incubus" has recorded a couple of my songs. I think he is on a site called "Soundclick". There are few things I enjoy reading more than my own words, and enjoy listening to others as well.

@Patrick: thanks for reading this and delving into its profound meaning. It's hard to understand how it might have offended someone, don't you think?. @my unrelenting "unabomber" colleague(s): I merely repeat a line of the song, "Teat - cow's udder all the same"......

I love the experimentation (although in line 1 I cannot grasp the pronunciation against the actual song pace). Can you do the entire song? That would be a real treat.
