Subject: Lyr Add: Alexander Technique Rag
From: SPB-Cooperator
Date: 30 Jun 20 - 08:11 AM

Oh my honey! It's not funny!
When I woke up I couldn't move a muscle.
I was achin', my back was breakin'
I was feelin' sore, couldn't take no more.
I was then sure, it was my posture
So I went out to find an Alexander
Teacher, reacher,
To get me moving again.

   Come on around, come on around
   For the Alexander Technique rag
   Lay on the ground, lay on the ground
   For the Alexander Technique rag
   In just half an hour, it will make you feel so glad
   It'll cure aches and pains that you never knew you had
   You'll walk home feelin' ten feet tall
   An' that's not all.
   Come on around, come on around
   There's this gal you ought to meet.
   An' lay right down, an' lay right down
   An' let her take you by the feet
   An' if you want your spine to feel just fine
   Tomorrow mornin'
   Come on around, come on around
   For the Alexander Technique rag!

On the table, I was able
To move my hands and legs in all directions
And then to sittin', I got to quittin'
Slouchin' on the seat, crossing legs and feet.
I got to walkin' I started talkin'
In a voice so deep, and so seductive.
Upright, alright.
Back on top of the world!

   Come on around, come on around
   For the Alexander Technique rag
   Lay on the ground, lay on the ground
   For the Alexander Technique rag
   In just half an hour, it will make you feel so glad
   It'll cure aches and pains that you never knew you had
   You'll walk home feelin' ten feet tall
   An' that's not all.
   Come on around, come on around
   There's this gal you ought to meet.
   An' lay right down, an' lay right down
   An' let her take you by the feet
   An' if you want your spine to feel just fine
   Tomorrow mornin'
   Come on around, come on around
   For the Alexander Technique rag!

   If you wan't that spell, that makes you well
   Then go to see her.
   Come on along (come on along)
   Come on along (come on along)
   The Alex - an - der - Tech - nique Rag.


Words S P Belsey (1996), Tune Irvin Berlin

Went to a talk once by well known musician and discovered that AT is a whole way of life. Not a fix.
SL sings The Hedgehog Blues which I assume he wrote, lamenting acupuncture.

Having introduced the Alexander Technique,
one could proceed to the Feldenkrais Method and beyond,
but I don't know where to start, parody-wise.

I've done my my bit for alternative therapies anthems. I'll leave that to you.   

Hmmm...

Feldenkrais, Feldenkraise
