I get all my ideas in Switzerland near the Forka Pass. There is a little town called Gletch, and two thousand feet up above Gletch there is a smaller hamlet called Über Gletch. I go there on the fourth of August every summer to get my cuckoo clock fixed. While the cuckoo is in the hospital, I wander around and talk to the people in the streets. They are very strange people, and I get my ideas from them.
Two themes for the end of the lyrics month! First, a children's theme, which I'm kicking off with what I think of as a poem for two voices from Seussical:
Steve Songs. He has a lot of inventive, interesting lyrics.
They Might Be Giants cover many science topics in a fun way.
Bonus lyrics that made me laugh:
My second theme is "I can't keep quiet." I already featured this first song, but it's back with a choir of 1,300:
Cold War Kids: Locker Room Talk
Bonus for people who like political parodies: The Russian Connection (to the tune of "The Rainbow Connection," song starts 2 minutes in)
Reflections on the Teche has the Poetry Friday round-up. Thanks, Margaret!
