John Donne x the Beatles

Having read the forum rules, this may indeed be TOO pointless, but we’ll see. Somehow this forum seemed better than Cafe Society…

This has been rattling around in my head for years and I figured if anyone would appreciate it, someone her would.

To the tune of “Paperback Writer”:

Hey King Charles would you read my book
It took me years to write it, will take a look
It’s based on the Bible by a man named God
And I need a job
S I wanna be a religious writer
Devotional writer

I’m sorry.

I’m Henry the Fifth, I am,
Henry the Fifth, I am, I am.
I got married to the princess next door,
I won her at the battle of Agincourt.
And all of my archers were yeomen (YEOMEN!)
'Cause they make the very best bowmen (BOWMEN!)
I’ve a band of brothers, I’m Henry,
Henry the Fifth, I am.

This could be a thread game. Not played by me, but someone would play.

Fretful Porpentine: Brilliant!

Don’t you mean Bunyan rather than John Donne (d. 1623)?
