The Long And Boring Song (with apologies to Paul McCartney

The long and boring song
Tha-a-t just goes on and on
And never seems to end
Just goes on and on
It keeps on going on
A-and on, that boring song
That never seems to end
It just goes on and on

Many times, you thought that I
Had nearly reached the end
Then you reach another bit
To drive you round the bend

And still it's going on
Tha-a-at long, and boring song
It never changes pace
Nor varies in the least

It's not our greatest song
Tha-a-t long, and boring song
It's kinda obvious
We'd run out of ideas

And yet another bit
To the long, and boring song
Tha-a-t never seems to end
It just goes on and on

I don't think you're REALLY sorry :)

It was one of his most overrated songs, but I'm glad you didn't mock his "yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah" lyric at the end. They were the best thing in it.

Hehe, a pin-prick to the balloon of pomposity!

Bug - to be fair McCartney has committed far worse musical atrocities since. Frog Chorus anyone?

GB - the end is definately the best bit. When it finally finishes after 12 hours

Argent - :)

Oh dear, one of my favourites. What does that say about me? But I love your parody.

Never mind the quality, feel the length.

Peter - it shows that there is room in this world for all tastes :)

Friko - length does not substitute for sensitivity. Oh good grief...
