Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Dedicated to John A. Barry and his extremely strange animal-themed parodies to this tune.
It’s now, forever.
Profound insight:
It’s now all morning;
It’s now all night.

Will be now, too.
I feel so clever
Right now, don’t you?

Way back in college
Read Thoreau and Whitman,
T.S. and Ezra,
And other lit-men;

Bhagavad Gita;
Also Saint Teresa;
Alan Watts’ Zen
All meet again
This way:

It’s now, forever
Don’t hold it tight;
Observe, no judgment,
No mind, no fight.

Your sorrow
Is inchoate;
It’s now, forever--
Thus meditate.

I’m not a guru
Or a dolly lama;
Nor half as bright as
Barack Obama;

I sit in silence,
Am opposed to violence;
At very least
I tame the beast

It’s now, forever.
This moment’s gone,
Replaced by others
And on and on;

This song now
Must terminate;
It’s now, forever;
With cows don’t mate!

It’s now, forever--
With cows don’t mate!
It’s now, forever--
With cows don’t mate!
It’s now, forever--
With cows don’t mate!
