Any budding songwriters? Because ...

Recommended Posts

My Italian leather rally strap arrived, and whilst I was fitting it, I felt my watch was worthy of a song, an Ode to Joy and all that.

However, the best I could do, was two verses:

I once fell in love with the dial

Of a watch in a shop by the Nile.

It was made by Shinola,

I asked 'Is it solar?'

But the vendor just said with a smile:

"Battery quartz, and it's very expensive,

Though the list of fake claims is extensive,

When the pharaoh was dead

They strapped one to his head

So Anubis won't find him offensive."

The last line needs a little work. Help!

Good effort, though I think an Ode to Joy should be a bit more rousing. Keeping Beethoven's Ninth in mind ...

Jet has got a smart Shinola 

Sitting pretty on his wrist.

Though it's quartz, it cost a fortune

And comes top of any list.

Do not say that it's a homage,

Don't dare claim that it's a fake.

You're just sore you haven't got one.

We all hope your strap pins break.

... that's my work displacement activity for today.

I have a Sekonda, my daughter wears it now for college, from 30 years ago that used to play that as the alarm tune!

The European anthem of unity.  Aaaah...  Those were the days!

I dunno, I mean, the joke is there for the taking, almost churlish not too, but I'm not gonna.  It was a rubbish joke anyway.

Thank you. All we need now is a symphony orchestra, a large choir and a recording studio.

The euphemism was bad, 

The Watch could've been good,

I threw it in the Detroit River,

In a bad mood,

It sunk to the bottom,

Out of site,

Why call it Shinola,

Which is slang for sh!te.

I shall collect my coat.

No no, it's slang for 'the sh*t'', subtle difference.

It didn't rhyme. Poetic licence. Overruled.
