( With appologies to Allan Sherman)
Hello readah, hello bloggah,
It feels like my brain's a pinata.
Writers' block is very paining
And I still can't think of anything that's entertaining.
I went surfing, I used Ask Jeeves.
Found nothing, now I am peeved.
Wanted something new, a real winner.
Now that I've found it, I think I'll post it after dinner.
All the journalists hate the bloggers,
And the Web is full of us cloggers.
And all you readahs want no sissies,
So I post something that reads a lot like Joyce's Ulysses.
Now, I won't short change ya,
And I surely won't estrange ya.
Read it, I hope you won't pity it,
And hopefully I won't come across as an idiot!
Read my blog, oh readah, bloggah.
Read my blog, don't hit this pinata!
Don't leave my site in a big huff
And I promise I won't post it in the buff!
Read my blog, I promise I won't make it too long
Or spell too many words wrong.
Oh, please don't make me cower.
I've been here ... ONE WHOLE HOUR.
Dearest bloggah, wonderful readah,
Please don't make me into a pleadah.
Read my blog, coz I am at an impasse,
And if you don't like it, then you can kiss my ass!
Wait a minute ... Outside it's storming!
The words are flowing ... Thoughts are forming.
Going to post it and run it up the flagstaff.
Readah, bloggah, kindly ignore the previous paragraph!
The above is sung to the tune of "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah (A Letter From Camp)" by Allan Sherman. I have parodied it with respect for the original song and for Allan Sherman, one of the great Novelty song writers.
