I just spent more time than I want to admit working on Bill West’s Genea-bloggers’ Just Make Up Some Lyrics Challenge! I’m used to making up lyrics to songs on the radio – yes, people think I’m strange. So I was lucky that Bill had such an excellent idea. I’m still strange, but now I have company! Oddly enough, I had seen the original post of the challenge as well as some of the great contributions so far. I even commented on footnoteMaven’s post today that I had better post mine before someone “steals” my song. Imagine my surprise when I saw Bill’s response to his own challenge. It was posted almost two weeks ago, but I somehow missed it. Ooops! It seems as though Bill is singing MY song! But our surnames are different, and so are our rhymes, so I am going to post my lyrics anyway. Great minds think alike, so I’m sure Bill won’t mind (I could use a flutaphone accompaniment though). I knew I should have chosen “Disturbia” or “Superfreak” or something more original…oh well, there is still time to submit another song to the challenge!
My Favorite Finds (to the tune of “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music)
Piontkowski grandfather, changing his name,
Finding his arrival was just like a game,
Finally found it, nearly losing my mind.
One more example of a wonderful find!
I can’t find them!
What’s the spelling?
Handwriting’s really bad!
I simply remember my favorite finds,
And then I don’t feel so mad.
