Our University song

Recommended Posts

Conversing in verse could be a curse or worse

To pen our lines with all rhymes defines our confines

I think, wink wink, we need our ink in sync

I could be wrong all along with a song rhymes belong beats playing pong

This game needs more of a chore for us to score and hear the roar

We're in a bind oh so blind need to find a way to leave behind this kind of grind

I see Chris is now in bliss about the hiss that we won't miss, no not that abyss

Yes, it's totally addictive

But, I find its not restrictive

How about your new recording?

Have you and Kenny been consorting???

Have you posted this creation?

And will it please the total nation?

If so where, I'd like to know,

Maybe you're too shy to show?

By the way if you should choose

The Lefty Challenge to peruse

I have posted number 2

Now I think its up to you.

People here think I've gone nuts

Except the dogs, (they're loyal muts)

I just can't stop it, night or day

Instead of work, I'd rather play.

In fact I love it, in its way

Of turning thoughts that come each day

Oops.......

there's the door-bell - must away!

I checked out the left handed thread

That Carol M's left me for dead

Kenny where should we go now

Pray tell us your ideas

I may not be all left fingers

But I'm definitely all ears

Chris there is something we have to discuss

Kenny craves order and encourages us

To stick to a structure and somehow contrive

To give this a driver and that we should strive

To give it direction, and some sort of tension

But I am quite happy, to just go with the flow-

Do you have any views? I would sure like to know.

My intent as we go, along this new road

were only thoughts, not meant to scold

life is a journey, or so I've heard say

no rush to the end, we've time to play

to converse by rhyme, is just one thing

I have hopes to create, stuff that sings

far be it from me, to steer this bus

I just thought, it would be a plus

I think we should have another stab at a song

Write and compose it, and then sing along

A collaboration from beginning to end

Would be quite special we'll set a new trend

We should all get something from such an endeavour

What do you think, could this plan work

Or would it just drive us all quite berserk

I've started talking in rhyme at home do I need therapy:laughingg:

To make stuff that sings, makes good sense to me

And don't worry Ken, I'm not feeling scolded

It's maybe the way that the rhyming unfolded-

I'll go happily along with a rhyme and a song

A bus with no driver could never last long.

You should be captain of this little ship

I'm not one to mutiny, not even a bit

It's just that I saw you were not well at ease

With such looseness and chaos upon these high seas.

I seem to be mixing my metaphors now

What I need is a Captain up there in the prow

To guide me from all of my very loose ways.:oops:

And, as you are the guy with very the best map

I think I should shut up and stop all this.............:dunno:

I find that now I'm not rehearsing-

It's head to page in all my versing.

I think this might be a mistake

(And as for nerve it takes the cake)

I'm mindful of Les Jones' great adage

That, if you want to craft a package

Full of joy and added meaning

Avoiding flubs (they're so demeaning)

The re-write's always quite essential

Especially in matters existential.

Note to Chris, the answer's yes

Your brain is clearly in a mess

Mine is too, so don't feel bad

I'm going to blame mine on my Dad.

Any direction is fine by me

our bus is a boat out to sea

was only a thought not a plea

my mind it does often flee

has the size of a geen pea

just to play brings it glee

at least to some degree

but at last I must decree

I'd make a lousy emcee

take my name off the marquee

things work out I guarantee

now this verse I'll set free

I hear you laughing tee hee

Laughter spreads around the world

As our ship its sail unfurls

It spreads its wings, or sails..whatever

Just like that famous ship Endeavor (look it up!)

Well done Chris, you've earned top marks

In Australia, there are some parks

That bear the name of Captain Cook

Who thought he didn't need to look

For natives who, in anger, not fear

Felled him with a trusty spear.

And so with my name as Cook

I always do a double look

don't want to feel the hook

of being offed like in the book

My brothers name is James as well

not much to say just thought I'd tell

I notice that you rhyme Australia

With that wondrous title, Sailor

People here get pessimistic

Sometimes even solipsistic.

What words rhyme with our Australia?

Apart from 'dahlia' ? - only 'failure'

What does it mean, I hear you ask

Solipsistic????????.....my $#*@

Well I'm not sure, I put my cup down

Looked it up, and with a deep frown

In the book where words are found

I searched and searched, down and around

But couldn't find it anywhere

(I fear my spelling's au contraire)

But its a word, I can assure you

But useful entries? there were too few.

In matters called 'other'

I've heard from my brother

Who thinks I'm both silly and daft -

Oh dear it's returning

The limerick's burning

A hole in what some say's my craft.

:eek:

I heard that sometimes people say

'Too many cooks can spoil your day'

I for one, do not believe it

We have one that's quite a hit

(Notice that I rhyme with care

Little kiddies, not to scare)

Our Cooks (and Sailors) all have class

And licences to drive, real fast

(That was tricky, words that rhyme

Though tempting, can be out of line)

How to end this little ditty?

Oh temptation......what a pity

High moral standards are required

Or memberships could get expired!

All of you are really great lyricist

When God gave rhymes I was missed.

It seems to come so easy for some

But when I try I just feel dumb!

I think I'll just stand by and observe

I just don't have enough nerve

To test my skills against the best,

I think I'll just give it rest!

I'll continue to check in when I'm on

To see where the verse has flown

It has wings that soar away up high

You never know where it might fly.

Sorry, I'm not lyrically bent

I just don't have the talent

of Carol, Kenny or Starsailor

At verse I'm just a failure.

This is fun, but it strains my brain so I refrain, since I really don't like pain!!!!!:winkthumb:

it gets much easier as you go along

its just a way of saying words in song

it starts out just like a letter

keep at it and you'll get better

we weren't born with this thats for sure

and yes some times its pure torture

but don't give up and leave us dry

you don't want to see me cry

Heres where I get my help...just type a word then "go get it"

RhymeZone: sure

Besides I thought that was great!

Hey Aunt Dotty, that was great

But how you recklessly tempt fate

That was awesome, never fear

Rhyming's in your soul, that's clear.

Don't be shy, this forum's open

For all the members, some outspoken

Some are less so - that don't matter

All are welcome, with all their patter.

Yes Aunt Doty

::That did impress

:::::::: If you stop

::::::::::::We'll get depressed

:::::::::::::::::So pray continue

:::::::::::::::::::::Working with you

::::::::::::::::::::would be a real plus

::::::::::A learning curve for all of us

::::::It's like a roller coaster ride

::No need for anyone to hide

:::So keep on putting word to page

:::::::::::It's harmless fun, yes all the rage

::::::::::::::::::::: And if you run out of ideas

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::Or start to feel the nerves

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Do something really silly

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::like writing rhymes in curves

Okay guys and gals, I'm still trying

I'd really hate to see Kenny crying

After all he's such a nice guy

It would be a shame if I didn't try.

Starsailor I liked your verse in curves

We may avoid mental blocks if we swerve

To miss the things that strew our way

And leave us with naught to say

And Carol I'm glad you think it's great

I feel that you surely overrate

My weak attempts to make thoughts clear

But then you're always such a dear

Seventeen hours without a word

What I wonder has occurred

To halt the prolific words for so long

I wonder, is anything wrong?

Or has the fount of rhyme gone dry

And left your brains like stir fry,

All jumbled and tired and needing sleep

Cause it's been awhile without a peep!

Never fear my dear Aunt Dotty

We're all here, but there are times

When other matters drive us potty

And we must put aside our rhymes.

Back soon..............:)
