Could you reword a song or jingle to make it appropriate for today's age?

Asked by zensky (13367points) October 20th, 2011

Just for fun – no strict rules to adhere to.

This popped into my mind after skyping with a friend; I only have skype for you.

My smartphone has a first name—it’s A-P-P-L-E
My smartphone has a second name – it’s I-P-O-D-3
I love to use it everyday
And if you ask me why, I’ll say
Steve Jobs was clever as can be with this D-E-V-I-C-E

(my bologna has a first name—it’s O-S-C-A-R)

All around the Wallstreet hype
The media chased the people.
And after them in double haste
Pop! goes People Magazine’s shutter

Sung to the tune of Paradise City by Guns N’ Roses:

Take me back to the 1960’s
Where the grass is smoked
And the girls are hippies
Oh, won’t you please take me home?

I’ve been singing this to my my goose “Marwyn” for 13 years. It’s “our” song and he “rows” on cue!

I hold him in my arms and sing…

Row, row, row your flappys, gently down the stream
Marwyn, Marwyn, Marwyn, Marwyn, life is but a dream.

Letterman doesn’t know what he was missing with our stupid pet trick. haha

I’d just like to buy the world an I-pod and keep it perfect company.

@Adirondackwannabe, you could now buy the world some “coke” and get a pretty interesting result ;-)

@picante I didn’t think of that. LOL

Botox, a little jab’ll do ya,
Use more, only if you’re bold,
But watch out,
Your peeps will all peruse ya,—
They’ll wonder why your forehead isn’t old

The original :
Bryl-creem, a little dab’ll do ya,
Use more, only if you dare,
But watch out,
The gals will all pursue ya,—
They’ll love to put their fingers through your hair.

Well I wrote a limerick about cell phones. Like to hear it? Here it goes:

Cell phones in every pocket.
Concept took off like a rocket.
But I hate to text
It leaves me perplexed
Rather take mine right now and just hock it!
