Mr. Cat. Hold on I think I know my next move, just give me another minute....NO!!!!!!!
If that's the song I think you're referring to, shouldn't you lose a syllable from the refrain? Maybe, "The statue got high (score)"?
In the song on the refrain if you listen to it the song the word in brackets is normally repeated with the refrain. So on the old J card it would be: The statue got me high (high).
There is a technical word that all filksters need to know: Scansion. Learn what it is. Learn how to deliver it.
Also in my bitching camaro poetic license. I do donuts on Scansion's lawn, play mailbox baseball to Iambic Pentameters mailbox, and smoke my tires in and flip off the whole measured verse sub-division.
But I did learn a new word "filkster", so I am always greatful when I learn something. It was more just a song I got in my head when I played the card. But thanks for taking the time to read it =P.
