GUEST,Chicken Charlie BS: Oh, ye Pedants, it's your day! (30) RE: BS: Oh, ye Pedants, it's your day! 06 Mar 08


Found this on an old Edison cylinder recorded by Epiphany Quimble and the Madhouse Four in 1908:

Come all ye fair and tender pedants,
Take warning how you proof our speech--
Someone my steal your prized thesaurus
And hide it quite beyond your reach.

Come all ye fair and tender pedants,
Take warning how you parse our graphs;
Someone may seize your dictionary
And try to stuff it up your aphs.

Take care you fair and tender pedants,
And do not count apostrophes;
Mock not our dangling participles,
But let us write just as we please.

Anyone know the chord progression?
