This is probably the only way you'd get me to sing!

I can't play the guitar for nuts. And I couldn't sing to save my life. This is yet another way of living vicariously through your art.

I've been falling in love with duets and cover versions of songs lately. There are so many awesome duets out there. And I absolutely love the "Let's call the whole thing off" song by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. It is one of the most adorable love songs ever. I thought I'd play around with the words a bit. I know it's cheesy. Poetry is not one of my strong points either. And no, we're not singing love songs to each other.

I'll write about the music bit on my other blog.

In case you can't read the lyrics properly, here they are:

You say eether and I say eyether,
You say wherever and I say whatever;
Eether, eyether, wherever, whatever
Let's call the whole thing off!
You like feta and I like cheddah,
You want pizza and I order pasta;
Cheddah, feta, pizza, pasta!
You say sarcasm and I say yeah right,
You say bite me and I say alright,
You say laughter and I say lawfter…who says lawfter??
You say after and I say now,
Laughter, lawfter, after… it’s awfter,
Let's call the whole thing off!
You like vanilla, No I like Vanilla!
You, sa's'parilla and I sa's'parella; What on Earth is Sasparilla?
Vanilla, My vanilla, No mine!
You say wyte and I say hwhite,
We both say hwhite... we do?
Let's call the whole thing off!
But oh! If we call the whole thing off, then we must part,
And oh! If we ever part, Then that might break my heart! (yuck!)
So, if you like pajamas and I like hyenas,
I'll wear pajamas and throw out the hyenas.
For we know we need each other,
So we better call the calling off off.
Let's call the whole thing off!
