The Lyrics

Tribal Trifles II
Twisted Et [ymology]

The Norse were a force; they set their course
To green isles to hide there among the gorse,
Then take up force and show no remorse:
They twisted what the Brits said.

Although they were Norse, they'd mixed, of course,
With tribes like the Gauls as they took to horse
And breached borders that were very por's,
Other tongues mixed in their heads.

The Brits yakked in Anglo-Sax; they tweaked
It with some Norse francais.
The twisted lexicon we speak
Dates from that 1066 day.

New immigrants take a course, of course,
And screech till they're hoarse the tongue they'll endorse.
Their words get blurred because of the source:
Our talk's demi-French.

Pretty good, John. Pacing's a bit rough, but not so rough that it's not "Lots" like the original (to me, a 5 for pacing doesn't mean "Perfect", only "Lots", like it says on this screen). Good job.

Thanks, Johnny D. Did this from memory and fond memories of ogling Wilbur's filly, Connie Hynes, I think her name was (dating myself).
