Homework 3 (The Parodies), Draft One

A Pair of Parodies, Modeled After Robert Burns' "A Red, Red Rose"

The Original
O, my luve's like a red, red rose,
That's newly sprung in June.
O, my luve's like the melodie,
That's sweetly play'd in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonie lass,
So deep in luve am I,
And I will luve thee still, my Dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry.

Till a' the seas gang dry, my Dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun!
O I will luve thee still, my Dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only Luve,
And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho' it were ten thousand mile!

My Parody One

O, my Luve's like a rocky road
Studded with sav'ry bits
O, my Luve's like a cool tall cone
That melts the warmer it gets

As good you are, my double scoop
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my man,
Till a' the drips run dry.

Till a' the drips run dry, my man,
And the chips melt wi' the sun;
And I will luve thee still, my dear
While sticky tracks down run  <----------FIX THIS LINE

And fare-thee-weel, my ony luve!
And fare-thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
And skip home with a smile! <----------- FIX THIS LINE

Parody Two (From GP's Classic Corvette)


Oh, my love's like a sweet cream Vette
Thats original radio tuned
Oh, my love's like "Come Together" playing
The Fab Four harmonies crooned

As fair thou art, my showy ride
So deep in love am I;
And I will love thee still, my dear
Till all the gas pumps dry

Till all the gas pumps dry, my dear,
And the pistons rust with the wear.
I will love thee still, my dear,
While the tires of life tread bare.

And fare thee well, my only love,
And fare thee well awhile!
And we will drive again, my Love,
Post tune ups each 10-thousand mile <-------- FIX THIS LINE
