Sent to me by my juggling husband.
You’ve probably already seen this but it’s relatively new to me. I was never a big Queen or Freddie Mercury fan, but I am a big fan of Downhere. More specifically of their song How Many Kings? and I think Marc Martel is freakishly good in this audition to be the lead singer of a new Queen tribute band. (He won the competition.)
Dearest creature in creation,
Study English pronunciation.
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.
Just compare heart, beard, and heard,
Dies and diet, lord and word,
Sword and sward, retain and Britain.
(Mind the latter, how it’s written.)
Now I surely will not plague you
With such words as plaque and ague.
