"Born Free"

Original Performer:

Matt Munro / Andy Williams

Parody Song Title:

"V/C (Vote/Comment)"

Parody Written by:

Tommy Turtle

The Lyrics

For newer readers, "v/c" is a common abbreviation here for "vote and comment", as in replying to a comment: "Thanks for v/c."

If comments are thin: blows!
"Ones", three, from some a**holes
V/c: opinions, impart

"Fives", three?
Song witty, propound, you
The world thinks: profound, you
Sublime! They're hooked! You're a star!

Pray, thee
That no one deride you
A spree of good scores applied
So AIR can feed your pride!

Are readers, forth, giving
Our songs: long, reliving
Please: your ... v ... c !

Let me be the first to 555 you. Sadder than a string of 111 is a song ignored entirely. Happened to me a few times. I'm old enough that when I kept seeing you write "V/C" I thought "Viet Cong". What did they have to do with this site? Security code for this message "SKS", a common Russian/Chinese rifle used by the Viet Cong.

Words of reptilian wisdom! Don't underestimate the power of a truly funny comment. Some of us put as much wit into our reviews as we do our songs. ;D

My first though: venture capitalists. Good point, short and to the point.

V/Cing you 555's for this one! I echo all comments above!

Patrick: Well, you could have *asked*, you know! ;) ;) ;) ... Perhaps being controversial, perhaps even being annoying , is the key to having never been ignored. Sometimes unibombed, never no-voted. :-D DK why your stuff would be ignored - it's well above the median here, often excellent. Thanks for v/c - oops, I mean, "vote and comment" :-D

Mark Scotti: Thanks. (ditto)

TJC: Grati!

Old Man Ribber: "Some of us"? Gee, I wonder who? (Not a slam - I, and many others, *love* your punny comments! ... And why isn't there one *here*? KIDDING!) ... TT sometimes tries for a bit of wit in his comments - he's frequently been called a "bitwit", or something close to that. :-D

John Barry: You've been here for more than six years, and you DK v/c? I'm not buyin' it... lol. Thanks for v/c, and somehow, I doubt that a paean to venture capitalists would go over too well here, but I could be mistaken. :)

Christie Marie M: I echo thanks!

"I'll v/c-ing you, for all the old familiar paces..." or something like that. Here's something like 3 5s! :)

I think I have had three songs ignored entirely. One was actually a piece of debris, trying to put lyrics to a tune that should best remain an instrumental (and, in fact is rarely ever sung). Another was targeted for a particular day, the only day it would actually be relevant. The third was a somewhat controversial song, during a spell when you, me, and Michael were all going at each other over a still hot issue, yet not one vote or comment. You just never know.

Patrick: Now, you don't.

Hard to see how the two that had view numbers in the high 200s didn't get any v/c -- I suspect either a software glitch, or forgetting to enable comments. (Which is one reason that I suggested to ChuckyG that "Enable Comments" be checked by default. Several others agreed, and he made that change a few months back.)
