The Lyrics

It's been quite a year—and *hopefully* there's another one on deck!

Say, where did twenty-twelve go?
Stormed on through!
In—with Costa Concord’ia
Out—Mayans claim we’re through
Say, where did twenty-twelve go?
Fell off ‘cliff’—
Just like Baumgartner, 'Fiscal',
Gaza and hopes of Mitt

Recall Olympics o-pen-ing
While Arabs sprang a *sprong* in ‘Spring’
for freedom?
Then Phelps and Shuttles both retired
While Facebook stock and drought grew dire
Goodbye to E-den!

Say, where did twenty-twelve go?
Word is, Mac—
Though LeBron fin’lly won 'that' Ring
Hobbits stole it back

This year we rarely found rainbows
In PACS or pols of Mitt’s or O’s
Such spinning!
While Trump-n’-Eastwood rant-n’-raved
They crowned Ms. Lohan ‘Miss Behaved’
And Sheen’s *still* WIN-NING!

Say prayer: Next year is better
‘Twelve’s rebirth—
All hope died now that ‘Gangnam’ guy's
Overlord of Earth...

So pray ‘Thirteen arrives—a bet
‘Cause ‘pocolyptic ‘Twelve

Sheer flippin' genius! So many clever lines, with tons of cultural references artfully worked into the pacing. I salute you sir, for a job well done - 555. (Although please GOD don't let that Gangnam guy REALLY be 'Overlord of Earth'!)

Nice recap of the year; a lot of noteworthy things. All years seem to go faster.

But it still was! What Wendy wrote/wrought/wished.

"Sprang a sprong in Spring"-pens: A rocker full of wry!

-Wendy: Thank you so much.. really appreciate your kind comments! And, BTW, it's too late--'Gangnam Guy' just granted himself 'Overlord' status, citing Morsi precedent!

-Timmy: Thanks!
-TTTBF: Thank youu, sir! Youu know I appreciate youur opinion!

As non-Anerican I don't get all of the references but it's an inspired OS match for sure, and very clever the way you worked them all in. Great job. 555
