If you can't take the heat...
« on: November 10, 2008, 01:35:03 PM »
Pygmy Hippo loves word-play. A day is not complete if he hasn't made at least three "puns"*.

Yesterday, whilst getting changed after his swimming lesson, he started singing:
"Take the heat, it's alright, it's alright."
Since this is the only lyric he knows from Wonderland, he just repeated again and again.
After a few times he changed it:
"I repeat: It's alright, it's alright."

We had a giggle about that.
"Go on," I said, "what else can you think of instead of 'Take the heat'?"

So we had:
"Very neat! It's alright, it's alright."
"What a treat! It's alright, it's alright."
"On the street it's alright, it's alright."
And what any gentleman would say to an old lady who'd just got on the bus:
"Take my seat -  It's alright, it's alright!"

But my favourite was a double-whammy:
"I'm a sheep; It's alright, it's alright.
I go bleat! It's alright, it's alright."

I reckon I've got a lyricist in the making here  :D

That made me think of Acoustic Treat :lol:
You talk
You think you own me
You miss the point completely
These things I do they\'re not for you
I\'m sick and I\'m tired
Leave me alone...
