Subject: Lyr Add: That's Amore (parody)
From: Nathan in Texas

This just came over the internet and I thought it worthy of archiving here.
--Nathan

When the moon hits your eye,
Like a big pizza pie,
That's amore.

When an eel bites your hand,
And that's not what you planned,
That's a moray.

When our habits are strange,
And our customs deranged,
That's our mores.

When your horse munches straw,
And the bales total four,
That's some more hay.

When Othello's poor wife
Becomes stabbed with a knife,
That's a Moor, eh?

When a Japanese knight
Uses his sword in a fight,
That's Samurai.

When your sheep go to graze
In a damp marshy place,
That's a moor, eh?

When your boat comes home fine
And you tie up her line,
That's a moor, eh?

When you ace your last tests
Like you did all the rest,
That's some more "A"s!

In New Zealand you see
An aBOrigine,
That's a Maori.

Alley Oop's homeland has
A space gun with pizzazz,
That's a Moo Ray.

A comedian ham,
With the name Amsterdam,
That's a Morey.

When your chocolate graham,
Is so full and so crammed,
That smore, eh.

When you've had quite enough,
Of this dumb rhyming stuff,
That's "No more!", eh?

Nathan, I think you were around when we went through these before. Maybe you'd want to link your thread to this older one.

a search would reveal that we have many of those...and similar.. already...*grin*...that parody formula has been popular for many years, but the internet allows new folk to send it out again and again and again and again and again and again...at lightspeed....

no matter...it is fun and clever and hones the creative impulse...

I guess I missed it the first time. I figured it would be here, but I searched and didn't find it; so, here it is again.

The Maori verse is different and it's a great one. Nathan, if you hadn't started this thread, no one would have linked to the old one and I would have missed Micca's "The Bonnie Eel o' Moray."

When you find something new, but you think it's just you, then you foray
Into the 'Cat, to see the posts that came before, eh?
There are no post so named, so you post, then you're flamed, by that bore D...oops

(Any resemblance to an authentic - and intended - nasty comment is purely accidental. It was a cheap rhyme, you can get me next time, don't get sore, eh?)

I always thought that:

"When the moon hits your eye, Like a big pizza pie"
That's slapstick.

Got thes from other divers (may have been posted before, I dunno)

When you see in that reef all those bright shiny teeth, that's a moray,

Put your hand in that crack and you won't get it back, that's a moray.

Cheers,

When an eel rushes out
And bites off your snout
That's a moray.

There's also a Kerry version of this that I've heard (the Irish) Frankie Lane singing called Thats a Mháire.

"So you see as they say down in Condae Cíarí
Thats a Mháire"
