Ah, the joys of having an infant in the house again! In addition to all the neat stuff like being awakened every few hours every night, I also get to deal with all those early childhood afflictions like colic, thrush, and whooping belch... and worst of all, well-meaning friends and family buy us these accursed gadgets with tinny recorded music on them, reacquainting me with all those @$%*ing nursery rhyme tunes.

All is not lost: my motto is “If you can’t beat ‘em, write parodies of ‘em.” So may I offer youse a little disposable verse? Something we can pass on to the next generation, perhaps?

Ka-san Gachou’s MegaTokyo MicroRhymes after “Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes”

1. Poor, poor Piro,
Have you any chance,
Trapped here in Tokyo,
Threatened by romance?

Seeking after Kimiko,
Sought after by Yuki:
The outcome of this triangle
Is certain to be spooky!

* * *

2. Wh3re c4n Gr8 T34ch3r Largo b3?
Wh3re c4n Gr8 T34ch3r Largo b3?
Wh3re c4n Gr8 T34ch3r Largo b3?
Bu1lding h1s R0botz 0f Ph34r?

H3’s try1ng to d3f3nd d4 c1ty fr0m Z0mb13z,
H3’s try1ng to d3f3nd d4 c1ty fr0m Z0mb13z,
H3’s try1ng to d3f3nd d4 c1ty fr0m Z0mb13z,
But n0w h3 h4s run 0ut 0f B33r!

* * *

3. A tiny Conscience has Piro --
She’s like a brunette Cupid;
Seraphim is keeping him
From doing something stupid.

From lusting after teenage girls
To whining o’er his fate,
Thanks to Piro, Seraphim
Has plenty on her plate.

* * *

4. Kimiko, Kimiko, whence comest thou?
“I tried for a voice role I know is lowbrow.”
Kimiko, Kimiko, why are you sad?
“I’m not sure they want me – they must think I’m bad.”

* * *

5. Evil maid Miho
Is dressed all in black;
Evil maid Miho
Is poised to attack.
She prowling ‘round Tokyo;
She’s lurking online --
Says evil maid Miho,
“Your soul shall be mine!”

* * *

6. Let us all take the Shibuya subway
To see knockout Erika do her cosplay!
A figure to die for, a face that bewitches:
Hands to yourself, or you're sure to need stitches.

* * *

7. Sketches Yuki saw,
That Piro has been sketching;
He’ll teach her to draw
When he quits his kvetching.

* * *

8. Dom, Dom, supplies the bombs,
And Ed supplies the lead;
And so, between them both, you’ll see
They’ll shoot all comers dead.

* * *

9. I’ve never fought this “ninja dude,”
I doubt I could defeat him;
But if Junpei was in my way,
I’d rather greet than beat him.

* * *

10. Himitsu desu,
Don’t hide away:
It’s plain by your eyes
That you’ve something to say.

Where’s the pretty lass
Who sees nothing but greys?
In a world without color
Throughout all her days.

* * *

11. Ping, Ping, a Sony creation:
She's bright and fun and always young;
But all the guys who want to play
Play far too rough: to their dismay,
They'll find she'll play them like a drum,
And kick their butts to Kingdom Come.

(Apologies to Mother Goose, and a tip o’ the hairpiece to Seraphim for her observations on the very excellent film Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi and fairy tales in general.)

Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes

[1.] Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes, sir; yes, sir,
Three bags full.

One for my master,
And one for my dame.
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

- - -

[2.] 0h, d34r, wh4t c4n d4 m4tt3r b3?
0h, d34r, wh4t c4n d4 m4tt3r b3?
0h, d34r, wh4t c4n d4 m4tt3r b3?
J0hnny’s s0 l0ng @ d4 f41r.

H3’d pr0mis3d t0 buy /m3 4 bunch 0f r3d r1bb0nz,
H3’d pr0mis3d t0 buy /m3 4 bunch 0f r3d r1bb0nz,
H3’d pr0mis3d t0 buy /m3 4 bunch 0f r3d r1bb0nz,
T0 t13 up my b0nn13 br0wn h41r.

- - -

[3.] Mary had a pretty bird,
Feathers bright and yellow,
Slender legs – upon my word
He was a pretty fellow.

The sweetest note he always sung,
Which much delighted Mary.
She often, where the cage was hung,
Sat hearing her canary.

- - -

[4.] Pussycat, pussycat, where have you been?
I've been to London to visit the Queen.
Pussycat, pussycat, what did you there?
I frightened a little mouse under her chair.

- - -

[5.] Hector Protector
Was dressed all in green;
Hector Protector
Was sent to the Queen.
The Queen did not like him,
No more did the King;
So Hector Protector
Was sent back again.

- - -

[6.] Ride a cock-horse to Banbury Cross,
To see a fair lady upon a white horse.
Rings on her fingers, and bells on her toes,
She shall have music wherever she goes.

- - -

[7.] Three grey geese,
In a field grazing;
Grey were the geese,
And green was the grazing.

- - -

[8.] Jack Sprat could eat no fat,
His wife could eat no lean;
And so, betwist them both, you see,
They licked the platter clean.

- - -

[9.] I’ve never seen a purple cow,
I hope I never see one;
But I can tell you, anyhow,
I’d rather see than be one.

- - -

[10.] Little Boy Blue,
Come blow your horn!
The sheep’s in the meadow,
The cow’s in the corn.
Where’s the little boy
Who looks after the sheep?
Under a haystack,
Fast asleep.

- - -

[11.] Tom, Tom, he was a piper's son,
He learned to play when he was young,
But all the tunes that he could play
Was "Over the hills and far away,
Over the hills and a great way off,
The wind shall blow my topknot off!"

Dude. You rock! Those were all perfect! You had one about every major MT character, I think, and they were all great. I envy you, and look forward to the next time the creative bug hits you.

Hey, feel free to do your own versions... Go to the Dreamhouse Nursery and see the scads of rhymes you can chose from. And remember, I didn't get all the characters!

Maybe we can turn this into another "Slivovitz of Piney Flats" phenomenon.

Hey, feel free to do your own versions...


Heh...what an imaginitive idea! If no one else is going to accept your invitation, I will:

Miss Erika came
To ride on the train
At the end of a long working day,
When along came a groper
Who wanted to poke her -
The EMTs took him away.

Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider,
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away.

**********
Squeek, squeek, hamster
Might your name be Boo?
Yes ma'am, Yes ma'am
Who are you?

My name is Seraphim
I'm your supervisor.
You'll look after Largo
Who won't be any wiser.

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes, sir, yes, sir,
Three bags full.

One for my master,
One for my dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives in the lane.

That's the spirit! (Really good ones too!)

Quid pro quo:
-------------------


Inspector Sonoda, a Tokyo cop,
Lifted his gauntlet and then bellowed “Stop!
Though I see that your permits are filled out with care,
In choosing this week for your fight did you err.
You’re getting a ticket – and with it a fine.”
And thus does Sonoda keep zombies in line.

* * *

Robin and Richard were two pretty men,
They lay in bed till the clock struck ten;
Then up starts Robin and looks at the sky,
"Oh, brother Richard, the sun's very high!
You go before, with the bottle and bag,
And I will come after on little Jack Nag."

I'll see your quid, and raise you quo!

Mami said "To lunch let's go;
"You are going to buy, you know,
"If you don't, then Asako
"Is going to make you scream!"

Yuki said "I like that girl,
"Believe me, though, that you're no pearl!"
Mami cried "I'm such a churl...
"But don't forget ice cream!"

***

Bobby Shaftoe went to sea,
Silver buckles on his knee.
He'll come back and marry me,
Pretty Bobby Shaftoe.

Bobby Shaftoe's fine and fair,
Combing down his auburn hair.
He's my friend for evermore,
Pretty Bobby Shaftoe.

Shoka:
it's late at night and verse is flowing
thus I say let's go!


Shake Thee Most Delightful Tush
(after: All around the mulberry bush)
----------------------------------

Shake thee most delightful tush
in the cave of evil
until in dawning, night is done
Dance! my fair evils.

Swirl amongst the Fair Undead
beneath the darkened steeple
lost in the driving baseline's throes
Dance! my fair evils.

up and down the melody rode
thy swaying hips so regal
lost in the driving baseline's throes
Dance! my fair evils.

hear the wailing keyboards rise
mournful like a jackal
a tune played in your shining eyes
Dance! my fair evils.

oh with your long and doubled tail
the notes slow to a trickle
to watch their flinging graceful flail
Dance! my fair evils.

glimpse the darkest heaven's reach
between the flashing, fickle
strobes that light the divine breach
Dance! my fair evils.


(ok, so there are only 4 verses in the original. But playing VNV Nation at about volume level "17" makes for a *wonderful* muse, and I got carried away. happy.gif ...I prolly could have kept going too... ^^;;; )

This young girl, she broke one,
She did crick crack with my thumb,
With a crick crack, slap 'n smack,
Break another bone,
Erika goes dancing home.

This young girl, she broke two,
She did slip chip with my tooth,
With a slip chip, bloody lip,

She did kick trick on my knee,
With a kick trick, chicky click,
Break another bone,
Erika goes skipping home.

She flipped me down to the floor,
With a quick flip, twirl and kick,
Break another bone,

With a snap crack, whacky rack,

With a crick crack, rack a back,
Break another bone,
Erika goes flying home.

I gotta get into this.

Shoot, Shoot, Shoot Your Gun

Shoot, Shoot, Shoot Your Gun
Blow away zombies,
Violently, violently, violently, violently,
We must save the cities.

Ph34r, ph34r, ph34r the b0ts,
Though they come to save the day!
Frightenedly, frightenedly, frightenedly, frightenedly,
3vil runs away!

Largo Had a Damn Cool Thing

Largo had a damn cool thing,
Damn cool thing,
Damn cool thing,
Largo had a damn cool thing,
But knew not what it does.

Then one day the zombies came,
Zombies came,
Zombies came,
Then one day the zombies came,
To cause death and woes.

Largo, you know, he fought real hard,
Fought real hard,
Fought real hard,
Largo, you know, he fought real hard,
But they weren't stoppable.

Then the cool thing summoned ph34rb0ts,
Summoned ph34rb0ts,
Summoned ph34rb0ts,
Then the cool thing summoned ph34rb0ts,
And now Largo knows.

Sing a Song of Yuki

Sing a Song of Yuki
Sad little girl,
When she found Piro's bag,
It set her head a whirl.
When the bag was opened,
A sketchbook she did find,
The coolness of the artwork,
It simply blew her mind!

She knew she had to give it back,
But she wanted to know,
"Are you a real Manga-ka,
And How'd you become so?
Can you teach me how to draw?
I promise I'll be good."
Piro didn't want to teach,
but Erika thought he should.

One more before I sign off for the night:

There was a MegaMerchant
Who sold MegaShoujo stuff.
He employed a MegaBeauty
Who was sometimes MegaRough.
He hired a MegaFanboy
Who was pretty MegaPoor,
And they all worked together
In the MegaGamers store.

***

There was a crooked man
Who walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence
Against a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat
Which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together
In a crooked little house.


This was a great idea, smurd. What a way to make your return to the forums!

This is most gratifying!! Please don't stop. C'mon, I know there are more of you out there, c'mon and exorcise those childhood complexes! You know you want to.

Sing a song of Saké

Sing a song of Saké,
A pocket full of yen;
Single-cup Ozeki,
Always my best friend.
I can find Ozeki
At ev’ry vending stand:
Now, that’s what I call service-
Isn’t Tokyo just grand?

The Banker in his office suite
Counting others’ bucks,
And the humble Worker
Busy loading trucks,
Share this wondrous knowledge
With all of Nihon’s masses:
Just a little pocket change
Can knock them on their asses!

I wonder how long it will take until someone makes a parody of There Might Be Giants' "Triangle Man." I surely haven't had the m4d sk1ll5 for it just yet. I first heard of the song in an episode of "Tiny Toons", so I guess this is the right place.

Junpei was an L33t Ninja

Junpei was an l33t ninja,
An l33t ninja was he.
He bends up guns and brings Largo to school,
Though he does all his work for a fee.

He'd Just Bought a Rail Card

He'd just bought a rail card,
But what did he see?
A girl who had lost hers
And had places to be.

Since he was a fan-boy,
And a nice guy to boot,
He gave her his rail card,
Wouldn't let her refute.

He walked off and left it,
Before she could speak,
But without that rail card,
His outlook was bleak.

He walked all the way home,
When he got there Largo,
Was fixing a computer,
With no clothes down below.

Now cut to the girl,
Standing in front of the train,
She hadn't wanted to use it,
It caused her much pain.

But use it she did,
To try for a part,
She's better than she thinks,
Her voice acting cuts to the heart.

And several days later,
The two meet again,
She brings him spaghetti,
That was made by a friend.

But when the door opens,
What does she see?
And under-age girl,
Only wearing a tee.

He comes to the door,
And is instantly screwed,
Since there's a beautiful girl,
Who's brought him some food.

She gets the wrong impression,
But what can he do?
She hands him the dinners,
And says, "Too-da-loo."

Their friends drag them to dinner,
At a garden with b33r.
Combined with their low self-esteem,
That is something to ph34r.

She loses her temper,
And gives him back the card,
Another girl he likes;
Relationship's already FUBARed.

They got too drunk to move,
Slept the night away,
So we only can ask,
How'll they be screwed today?

Well, not quite there yet, however.....


What is the Cool Thing?

This thing is a ball that can really do it all
It's cool, and it's l33t, and it's awesome.
It can build a railgun, or quantum plasma ray.
And its folds up and fits in your pants pocket.

The thing is cool,
The perfect tool,
Can be used so many ways.
But the manual's written in Japanese
And I've no clue what it says.

We need L33t tools
To fight, you ph00ls;
Zombies are coming here.
Without this Cool Thing without a doubt,
There would be much to ph34r!

This thing is a ball that can really do it all
It's cool, and it's l33t, and it's awesome.
It can build a railgun, or quantum plasma ray.
And its folds up and fits in your pants pocket.

The thing is cool -- When I saw it sitting on the shelf in that freaky game store, I thought I was hallucinating or somethin'
The thing is l33t -- I had to max out my credit card to buy it, but what the hell, what's a little food and drink for a Cool Thing like this?
The thing is the perfect tool -- Using just this Cool Thing, a Playstation 2, and some cardboard boxes, I was able to build an army of Ph34r Bots in only three hours!
But even though it's really l33t, there's still one thing it lacks...

We need L33t guns,
To fight, you bums!
The evil must be stayed!
Cool Things are fine, but guns and knives
Are required to save the day.

The Evil Queen of the Undead has disguised herself as an innocent-looking schoolgirl.
The immense destruction that she will bring to this city will be like nothing else before;
Not godzilla, not rodan, not gamera.... Not even Hello Kitty!

This thing is a ball that can really do it all
It's cool, and it's l33t, and it's awesome.
It can build a railgun, or quantum plasma ray.
And its folds up and fits in your pants pocket.


Why Does the Sun Shine
They Might Be Giants

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas;
A gigantic nuclear furnace.
Where hydrogen is built into helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

The sun is hot,
the sun is not
A place where we could live.
But here on earth there'd be no life
Without the light it gives.

We need its light,
We need its heat,
We need its energy.
Without the sun without a doubt
There'd be no you and me.

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas;
A gigantic nuclear furnace.
Where hydrogen is built into helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

The sun is hot -- The sun is so hot that everything on it is a gas: aluminum, copper, iron, and many others.
The sun is large -- If the sun was hollow a million Earths would fit inside; and yet it is only a medium-sized star.
The sun is far away -- It's about 93 million miles away and that's why it looks so small.
But even when it's out of sight the sun shines night and day.

We need its heat,
We need its light,
The sunlight that we see.
The sunlight comes from our own suns atomic energy.

Scientists have found that the sun is a huge atom smashing machine.
The heat and light of the sun are caused by the nuclear reaction between
hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon, and helium.

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas;
A gigantic nuclear furnace.
Where hydrogen is built into helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

Whoa telliamed, that's pretty freaky. Gotta love it!

And now...

Cute Mother Meimi

Cute mother Meimi
Makes meals for her family
To keep them all healthy and straight,
Then in comes a monster
Who trashed out the harbor,
And kept her poor husband out late.

She made him a big lunch
To take up the slack
But a rampage sidetracked him
Before he got back.

She made Yuki breakfast
A few days before this,
But the girl couldn't eat,
Because of lovesickness.

Then a strong resolution
Gave her courage once more,
So she fought with her brother,
And ate like a horse!

"I'm glad," said her father,
"She's over her cold."
"Yes, it's hard," Meimi smiles,
"To get over love's throes."

"Um, Meimi-san, what, eh...
"What was that you said?"
Then his cell interrupted -
The rest you have read.

Cute mother Meimi
Takes care of her family,
(Pay heed to this whacked nursery rhyme!)
She's much more complex
Than her daughter suspects,
And she'll help her through difficult times.

***

Bit-crunch, Bit-crunch, little Ping,
How I wonder how you think.
How do structured microchips,
Bring such strange words to your lips?
Programmed, programmed, little Ping,
What made you more than a thing?

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.

hmmm. Found a whole bunch of interesting ones. I'll have a go at them tomorrow. And also, because I was a baka before, I need to thank my usual muse and rhymewolf, Tanetris, 'cause I forgot to in my post... ^^;;;

Ah well, I'm sure you'll be along sooner or later, JRL...in the meantime:

Ootika-san works
At Anna Millers,
Brews the coffee,
Cooks the dinners.
When management said,
"Take Kimiko's pot!"
He said "I'll watch -
"This should be hot."

Not from a nursery rhyme, though it sounds like one. Anyway, just wanted to cover another obscure character.

***

Eency Weency hamster
Sits up by Largo's neck;
Eency Weency hamster
Is now a nervous wreck.
If you had poor Eency's job
What is it you would do?
Because the way that Largo acts,
I wouldn't have a clue.

Eencey Weencey spider
Climed up the water spout;
Down came the rain
And washed poor Eencey out;
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain;
And the Eencey Weencey spider
Climbed up the spout again.


***

This has been great...just wish we could keep it going. Sure wish I was around when The Slivovitz of Piney Flats was in progress. That has got to be the all-time, number-one, most inspired and inspiring bit of silliness I have ever seen, smurd.

*sigh* Too bad you weren't around for Kimiko (Verse), either.

While I'm waiting for my muse (tick-tock, tick-tock), I'll post this little teaser from the MegaTokyo Christmas special*, a song which will be performed by by Yuki, Asasko, and Mami's band, "Potato Sweet." It's called "We Three Girls of Orient Shop."

(all)
We three girls of Orient shop
bearing bags we travel non-stop
stores and merchants, we go searching
to find the perfect top.
(/all)

(Chorus)
O, top of wonder, top of might,
top with genki cuteness bright,
Yuki's leading, still proceeding,
guide us to thee, perfect sight.
(/Chorus)

- _Quinn

* We do have enough filkers and parodists to get one of these ready in time for Fred's, don't we? :-)

Christmas music? Oh, it's on, now. And yeah, I think we have enough. Do they have to be about Christmas, or just parodies of Christmas songs?

We'll Stop You, 3vil Zombie Queen

We'll stop you, 3vil zombie queen,
You can be sure of that.
With crossbows, bombs and many guns,
If nothing else, a bat!
We'll end your reign of destruction,
You minions will go splat!
O tidings of violence and doom,
Violence and doom!
O tidings of violence and doom.
From the lands across the sea,
The l33t Master came,
He arrived in Megatokyo
And soon he grew in fame
So ph34r his l33t n3kkid skillz
And forget that he's insane,
O tidings of violence and doom,
Violence and doom!
O tidings of violence and doom.
Dom and Ed, they're warriors,
All challengers they shall take.
Though their record isn't very good,
Just recall the EdQuake.
Even so they work for good
(Or so they claim, those fakes.
O tidings of violence and doom,
Violence and doom!
O tidings of violence and doom.
Junpei is a ninja spy,
And a gamer to the end.
With a win at Mortal Kombat,
Back home Largo he'd send.
But Largo's the l33t Master,
With that you can't contend,
O tidings of violence and doom,
Violence and doom!
O tidings of violence and doom.
And so these great adventurers
They'll go to face the foe,
Doom is coming soon for us,
Next Tuesday, don't you know?
But at the depths of 3vils heart
These great men shall strike a blow.
O tidings of violence and doom,
Violence and doom!
O tidings of violence and doom...

God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman

I think we can accept both, but how about we try and get in a few Thanksgiving pieces before starting on the topical variants? That being said, I'll give fair warning: anyone who does "Frosty the Snowman" will be competing* with "Ping-chan the Robot" just as soon as I get around to writing it. ;-)

tidings of violence and doom

wai! But violence? In a poetry thread? ;-)

- _Quinn

* Competition welcome: the more, the merrier. Other possible entries include "Piro the Loser," "Miho the Raver," "Yuki the Schoolgirl," and "Largo the Gamer."
