The Lyrics

Ever since I did the "Or I'm Out the Door" parody on Monday, I've had this silly melody stuck in my head. And when I learned this was Mr. Poe's birthday, I found the rhyming scheme worked nicely for a tribute to Mr. Macabre. So here it is, and here's to hoping I'll finally get this melody out of my head.
Waiting for words
To pop in my head
Glass of wine in hand.
This Amontillado, a delicious find.
Oh, what a guy!

In my mind’s eye
Miss Annabel Lee
We both loved the shore
Now I feel weary, dismal, and dreary
Anna nevermore

oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oooo
My thoughts turned to blue
(his thoughts turned to, his thoughts turned to blue…)

And then I wrote the words
I now share with you.

A pendulum tocked
My mind in a pit
Can I move along?
Maybe solve a mystery with dear Dupin
He’s a Frenchman
Of whom I’m fond.

I hear a knock
As I turn my head.
Should I dare explore?
What is this rapping, who is that tapping
On my chamber door?

Never could I dream within a dream but there it was it seemed,
Nothing there appeared

What is happening?
(What is happen, what is happening…)

There at my window pane
A black feathered thing

A raven spoke and
Flew through the room
Landing on a bust
Never have I found a bird to be so rude
What if he performs
Number two?

That is my tale,
I tell from the heart
Do you want some more?
There’s no supposing, I’m decomposing
I write nevermore.
Thank you, Wikipedia and Mrs. Vaughan, my 10th grade English teacher. More miseducation available at The Blogging Baker.

Very clever concept. But be warned: A bird performing #2 is not a matter of if, but when.

Mr. Barry, I'm what's a maven? Thank you's the booze? OMR, thank you and Ethel Merman. Steve, you're right about the bird...a bird in the hand brings poop from their tush. FG, thanks for the rose, but where's the rest of the cognac? And TT-- Wasn't born today / Not on this news day / twas the day before.

Good to keep the posting delay in mind when doing date-specific parodies. (i. e., if his birthday was the 19th, submit on the 18th.) And watch out for weekends.):-) Still an excellent job!

Mark-I suspect you're not talking about the expensive perfume I buy my wife. But if you are, do you need an address?
