The Lyrics

Fg-TT writings make our days complete
All of their entries are a pleasure and a treat
With eye candy of confection reaching peaks of high perfection
Clever lines make each selection, hard to beat

They're the Bards of Parodies, their Shakespeare glows
Just as elegant as William, Heaven knows..
Tough as Foxes, yet as sensitive as "does"
From the Bards of Parodies..great phrasing flows

They choose many good old tunes from Broadway shows
Master-Mistress of fine poetry and prose
Intellectual and prolific, they're a duo that's terrific
Painting crafty puns to keep us on our toes..

As the Bards of Parodies, they've raised the bar
Higher standards find us shooting for a star
Give us honest critique when we're under par
They're the Bards of Parodies, that's who they are

They're the Bards of Parodies, that's who they are

I'm glad you didn't leave this one hermetically sealed inside a mayonnaise jar.

Just like attending a Shakespeare play, you have to pay close attention to their language and how it is used. The effort will be rewarded. A nice tribute to my favorite critics.

AFW : TT and FG truly may be our Bards Of Rave-On, but you certainly aren't Christopher Marlowe or Francis Bacon yourself! Did that come out right? Great topic for a tribute, delivered with your undoubted skill. ;D

What a nice surprise! DKTOS, but WhoTF cares???? !!!

Strange, I just e-mailed FG, ragging on her for not v/c-ing my two subs today, before I saw this. Will put an "Urgent" stamp on the next one, as soon as this is sent.

Loved the internal rhyming. Faves: "eye candy of confection" ... perfection". Alliteration: "phrasing flows".
And "does", my Dear, my female Dear.... :-D

"Master/Mistress" - mwahaha! Oh, is TT gonna have fun with her with that! ... hmm, what to vote, how to vote??? Seriously: Thanks.

Very fine compliment in the first sentence, and amped up even higher in the second. Thank YOU ;)

Great nod to the famous AIR parody duo! Yeah, enjoyed their Broadway and Shakespeare based parodies. They certainly are Bards of Parodies! Granting 555 stars for this one!

As TT said, what a wonderful surprise, and terrific parody. Tough internal rhymes, well-executed!

BTW,I love the OS... My dad played and sang a number of Little Jimmy's songs when I was growing up. My husband and I visited the Ryman Auditorium this summer on a vacation and found that he's *still* at the Opry every week and still loves coming out to meet and have pictures taken with fans. Cool.

Thanks, Michael...shades of Johnny Carson, there...and thanks, Patrick, must admit that my Shakespeare is limited to, more like, "Shakes Beer"...and thanks, that a lispish dialect? or Shakespearean pronounciation?...thanks, Christie...yes, they are...and thanks, DoubleT..I was sure you'd play off the Master/Mistress also wondered if some might take the word, "does" as past tense of "do" and pronounce it "duz".and thanks, Fg..glad you knew the other song..yeah, catch Little J on some of the older "Country Family Reunion" shows on the RFD channel..was your Dad a country musician? wonder you have your fine lyrical knack

TJC is playing on TT's "sheepish" parodies, by substiteweting "ewe" for each "u" sound, as I just did. He often "does" that at my own songs, but not eweseweally (heh!) -- uh, usually at other writers'. Consider it an additional nod in this direction, though perhaps the fact that not everyone would get it might have been considered.

The past tense of "do" is "did". "Does" is present tense, third person singular:

I do (NEVER say that! ;)
You do
He/she/it does
We, You (plural), They do '

But I totally agree with enclosing in quotes to prevent confusion with the verb, "does", whatever tense it happens to be. Sign of a good writer, to anticipate and prevent confusion. (TT to FG, many times. "Roadmap., Roadmap".)

I kind of get the impression that you're retired. Try a little of Shakespeare - get an "annotated" version, where they have footnotes (See where TT got the idea?!) explaining the archaic Middle English words.
  Here's a *huge* incentive to get you started: You're a fan of the Golden Age of Broadway. Did you know that "West Side Story" was a remake of "Romeo and Juliet:"? ... seriously. Same plot, same characters, just changed the time, place, and names. Capulets and Montagues = Jets and Sharks. R & J = Maria and Tony. I think you'll enjoy it, and that could lead to others. Rich literary vein to mine, and gives more references for your/our work here. Cheers.

On "Does" got me there, Prof. Higgins... .........On Shakespeare...and, West Side Story..I think I did hear that somewhere....Retired?...not yet, but I retire every night about 1 am...or when my wheel rubber wears down to the nubs...(yawn) I know..old corny jokes..But seriously, sort of retired, stay busy renewing and selling washer and dryer appliances....Over the years have worked in factories, and several years in Insurance business..not selling, adjusting and inspecting, etc. blah, blah, blah, (yawn, again) who cares? I do appreciate your grammar corrections and tips...although, English and Math were favorite school subjects..grammar and punctuation have never been my strong points...

Can't believe I've missed this one... great tribute to TT and FG, and you sound like you have done a lot with your life, from reading your little biography fragments on different parodies here on AIR. Lately I work 3 days a week in wildlife rescue/rehabilitation, and fix up 1930s-80s electronics as a hobby and income booster, although I have worked doing many other things and majored in world history, this is what I like best. Have these well-deserved 5s.

Thanks, Andria...Don't know if I've done that I get older, wishing I was young again, so I could do more and do it a lot differently, but I guess everyone wishes for that...Wildlife rescue sounds like good humanitarian work...and refurbishing old and classic elect.'s is interesting...I love electronics like that; old radios, etc...I've pack-ratted a bunch..still have an old Sony 4-track tape cassette recorder/player/ turntable...purchased new about "63"...used to transfer favorite 45 and 33 records to tape and play 'em in the car..Like Archie Bunker said and sang, "Those were the days"...never hit college, high school grad, only...not too fond of WH, but always liked American History, math, and of course, English.
