Parody Written by:

Emile Zola

The Lyrics

Inspired by my cameo in the movie "Crosswords", and by my conversation with Monsieur McArthur here.

All I want is a brief burlesque
Sharp satire, but not grotesque
To read here at my desque
Oh, wouldn't it be Zolaesque?

Lots of choc'late for yummy meal
Dame in velvet for me to feel
A novel by Emile
Oh, wouldn't it be Zolaesque?

Oh, so Zolaesque:
Alfred Dreyfus: thirst for truth, not quench
I... would... read, except one thing: ... I ...
Don't speak a word of French

Lots of art, mostly arabesque
Architecture, all Romanesque
Broads, trim and statuesque
Oh, would.... n't.... it.... be Zolaesque?


Internet pseudonyms are so cool. No one will ever know who "Emile Zola" is. Ha! Droits d'auteur 2007 "Emile Zola". Tout droits en réserve.

There seems to be a certain tortue quality that brings this parody to life. I accuse the author of writing a truly fine parody.

John Jenkins, j' plead guilty as charged. Thanks.

Very interesting and righteously well done... might have tossed in a line about dying from carbon monoxide poisoning from a chimney stoppered by one's political enemies... now THAT'S Zolaesque!

sLow Lerner, thanks... but that's a tough rhyme. "Chimneyesque"? "Carbonesque"? "Monoxesque"? Thanks for v/c, My Fair Lad(y).
