The Lyrics

A submission whilst the subject is topical...or is that tropical?
It ripped a plightly tangle
Turned ‘partments into boards
It was real unkind: Katrina
Now clouds build up for more
Gustav is coming harder
All loose-nailing’d flew away
Now high-tailed out ‘fore this weather’s brink
Hurr’caner brought a fray

And wish it would abater
As this killer boldly wails
Hate to face submerse-ed coastly:
Yearn a quieter grade of gale

It’s sad there is no season
Not embued with rain banshee
And I wondered though while praying hard
How those levees be
Soon a pristine crested ocean
May be cleaving to our coast
And while I surmise we’re copin’
I do trust an’ hope it slows

And so as winds buffet ‘er
Ask that clearer climes prevail
For the sake of all that’s coastly
Yearn for quieter grade of gale

And as those winds… (fade... hopefully)

A very good parody, and it happens to match the somberness of the OS also. 5's

I think Twist and Shout might be a good OS. :-) Great job IMO. We don't need no Gulf Wind Action. We don't need no Tropic Gale. Don't plant petunias in the Summer. This monsoon has stole our mail. Hey Gustav! Leave our house alone! Lost our wall to this new squall wrecking our home.

And now for the weather. Be on the look out for a storm of 5's heading your way for the rest of the week including the weekend. And also for those people on the city side it will be quite cold with 555% chance of rain.
