Ahem. Ladies and Gentlemen, prepare to, aha, lol - if one has had the misfortune of hearing the song "Tik Tok" by a certain "Ke$ha".

Wake up in the morning feeling like Da Vinci
Grab my goggles, I'm out the door, I'm gonna hit this city
Before I leave, wind my clock, and activate the lock
'cause I've got an important meeting at the Docks

...I talking steel caps on our toes toes
Getting on protective clothes clothes
Boys winding up our drones drones
Gramaphones playing our favorite LD's
Pulling up to the Party
Trying to get a little bit of money...

Don't stop, make the clock
DV blew my Mecha up
Tonight, I'm a Bright
Working through the night
Tik Tok on the Clockpunk
...To build the giant Mecha oh
Whirr whirr whirr whirr, whirr whirr whirr whirr

Ain't got a care in Venice but got plenty of gears
Ain't got no springs in my pocket but at least I'm here
And now the Lords are lining up 'cause they hear we got Mecha's
But we stomp them to the ground, cause we're Republican yeah

I'm talking about traps that are getting sprung sprung
Helping police round up the drunks drunks
Constructs smack them if they're getting to drunk drunk

Now now we go until they force us out out
Or our mainsprings wind down down
Our springs are winding down down...

Don't stop, make the clock
...DV blew my Mecha up
Tonight, I'm a Bright
Working through the night
Tik Tok on the Clockpunk
...To build the giant Mecha oh
Whirr whirr whirr whirr, whirr whirr whirr whirr

Don't stop, make the clock
...DV blew my Mecha up
Tonight, I'm a Bright
Working through the night
Tik Tok on the Clockpunk
...To build the giant Mecha oh
Whirr whirr whirr whirr, whirr whirr whirr whirr

You wind me up
And I wound down
My spring it whirrs yeah it powers me

Clockwork hands up
It powers me now
I know that sound
Yeah you are one

You wind me up
And I wound down
My spring it whirrs yeah it powers me

Clockwork hands up
Your game is up
Your game is up

Now the party don't start till I'm wound up...

Don't stop, make the clock
DV blew my Mecha up
Tonight, I'm a Bright
Working through the night
Tik Tok on the Clockpunk
To build the giant Mecha oh
Whirr whirr whirr whirr, whirr whirr whirr whirr

Don't stop, make the clock
DV blew my Mecha up
Tonight, I'm a Bright
Working through the night
Tik Tok on the Clockpunk
To build the giant Mecha oh
Whirr whirr whirr whirr, whirr whirr whirr whirr

I hope you enjoy it. I shall, possibly, put it into an audio format.

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

I would be quite interested in hearing the audio to this... I can't quite get some of it to fit when I sing it out... genius lyrics though, well done Cheesy

A definite improvement on the original  Cheesy

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

The lyrics don't fully fit - but this is, after all, only a first draft, written up over 30-60 minutes, and posted section by section as Facebook status updates. It's the first time I've listened to a song in sections, for the purpose of seeing how the words flow...

I'll make it audio once I get hold of a microphone which actually plugs into my computer, or rather an adaptor for the one I already have (hmmm, I might be able to run it through the amp...).
