Sing to the tune "Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam" (as Lou Midgley would sing it)

Danny wants me for a poster
on Sic et Non each day,
In every way try to please him
I spit, I fart, I bray!

A Jackass, a Jackass
Apologist for the Lord every day,
A Jackass, A Jackass
I post insults all the day!

Danny wants me to defend him
and swat the critics away,
I give this gift to him daily
by letting myself bray!

As apologist, an apologist
I'm a Ph.d holding apologist,
an apologist, an apologist
I please Danny everyday!

Jesus wants me to brag on my greatness
I travel, I type, I read,
I can insult with the best of 'em
as I sit and swig my Meade!

A great man, a great man
I can't help it, I'm a great man,
I travel, I argue
I'll be an Elohim someday!

You're on a roll today with this song writing in multiple threads. Well done.

"Midgley Popping Off on Sic et Non" (to be sung to the tune of "Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree":

I looked out the window and what did I see?
Midgley pop-ping off in a-po-plex-y!
Sic et Non's a place for really mean guys
Boas-ting, cru-elty, and quite a few lies!
Midgley can o-pine up a big ol' storm,
Tearing down oth-ers is just their norm!
They'll always want revenge, anger always rules,
But Midg-ley 'n' Dan are a coupl-a rubes!

Praise the a-polo-gist who trav-eled to Egypt!
From Syria to Spain and France
But to Gre-ece only twice.
The Roman Col-o-sse-e-um did inspi-re a vi-sion
for a comment sec-tion where Gemli won't be treated nice!

Philo Sofee and Gadianton:

Please sing your songs out loud, then it'll become clear how many excess syllables you added to each line.

Doctor Scratch:

If you eliminate the "a" in your last line, then every one of your lines will contain the correct number of syllables. Other than that, good job to you.

You are right, Dr. Shades, but I am willing to sacrifice adherence to the syllable count in exchange for coherency in this case. I assume you'll be adding your own contribution shortly?

I’m a stickler for meter, too. If you replaced the “are” with a dash or colon and replaced “couple” with “couple of,” I think the Gods of meter and coherency would be satisfied with no needed sacrifice.

I just hate to see perfection fumbled at the goal line... :twisted:

"I Hope I Get to Throttle Sandra" (sung to the tune of "I Hope They Call Me on a Mission")

I hope I get to throttle Sandra.
To dig my thumbs into her throat.
She's such an anti-Mormon jackass;
And she sells pure rubbish authored by that "queer."

I'll take Matt Roper and G. Novak.
We'll gather photos of the deed.
I'll post the details of this to SHIELDS
And celebrate how much pain I've dealt out to them.

All right, all right--I give. Eliminating the "just" will work as well, though the dash and colon certainly have their appeal....

Wow, Shades, I guess taking you bar singing is out of the question, huh? My understanding is that the hymns are based on old drinking songs, and I know when I sing Mopologist songs with the guys drunk, we like to improv and spice it up. Generally, we don't have a problem staying together.

Going over Philo's work, I can hear the meter tune to Sunbeam, the stated subject of the thread, just fine, except for a line here and there, but those parts are where it really gets raw and the expression comes out.

As for my own work, I'll "take the L" for the last line, but I see no fault elsewhere. As it went, I did sing the song; in fact, it was composed while driving and I had time to pass. I hadn't quite nailed the last line (the last line written here, that is), and had sung it two or three different ways. When I got home, I was so inspired that I threw back a few shots of Bourbon (in another post that night I hinted at this) and then wrote it out. That may have been a mistake, however, I figured everyone knew the tune well enough that with a hyphen here and there as hints, it would be obvious how it sounds.

CFR my friend, save the last line, which has an excess of 1.

As I'm fully alert now, I'll re-do the first line to clarify the rhythm. Feel free to point out the "excess syllable".

one - two and one and two and one - two and one - two
praise the apologist who traveled to Egypt!
