To the tune of "Don't Cry Out Loud" by Melissa Manchester

 

& dedicated to F.i.in.e Moods




For Cryin' Out Loud!

Melissa sang a song and it really hurt my ears:

It was all about a clown in some old circus.

An awful tune like this can really wreck careers;

I think she sang it just so she could irk us!

 

Her dreadful caterwauling's

Such a pain!

It's like an ice-pick driven

Through my brain.

 

I'd tell her:

 

DON'T SING THAT SONG!

Just stifle your voice,

And give us a choice that's better.

IT SOUNDS SO WRONG

When you wail and moan

A maudlin and mopey kind of tone.

 

Melissa wrecked the chorus and began the second verse,

And I really wasn't in the mood to hear it.

I was hoping that the music wouldn't get much worse,

So I prayed to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!

 

Melissa isn't stopping,

So I frown:

Will someone tell this woman

To pipe down?

 

Melissa,

 

DON'T SING THAT SONG!

It's driving me mad;

It really is bad and brutal.

IT SOUNDS SO WRONG!

You've given your best,

But now we ask, please give it a rest.

 

DON'T SING THAT SONG!

Just put it on mute!

It's really not cute or cheerful.

IT SOUNDS SO WRONG

Please cease and desist!

Your warbling, sister, won't be missed ….

Hi Tom
my carol sings all the time,
But what I hate most.
Is carol singing at Christmas time.
