This lyric can be sung to Gilbert & Sullivans “Modern Major General”


and once again...apologies to Messrs Gil & Sul

I Am The Very Model # 3

I am the very model of a modern Casanova

 More nimble than Astaire, Gene Kelly and Pavlova

My I Q scores soar above the heights of brilliant-osity

I fight for what I know is right with tiger-ish ferocity


While standing upright I’m a perfect perpendicular

I’m not ever known as heartless as my beats are all ventricular

I don’t ever err in judgment, as I’m never ever gaff-able

To think I’ve poor sagacity is foolishly quite laughable


My speediness, much speedier than any champ Olympian

I’m superiorly more super than that icon guy named Superman

I’ll surely not be known as a second-rater also ran

As there’s no one, past or present, that I am not much better than


I’ve been accused of being very egoistic

My accusers can’t conceive, that I’m being realistic

I must submit what I’ve written is not a lot of jumble

To sum it up, let’s face it, you’ll never find me humble

I could almost hear you singing this. I'm grinning from ear to ear, this is wonderfully fun, thank you for the grin!


A delight and all absolutely 100% true.
