Via Painted Maypole's Monday Mission... here's my song rewrite of The Beatles' "Maxwell's Silver Hammer".
Stinky was ready; he held the Wii-mote steady
Zelda's a cool game.
Riding a horse around on the TV.
Oh, oh, oh, oh.
Balanced on the ball*, defeating monsters big and small,
Excitement starts to mount.
"Watch me beat my highest of high scores,
Mo, aw, aw, om?"
But as he's bouncing u-up and down
His feet slip and he frowns.
Bang! Bang! There goes my new vase**
Down onto the floor.
Bang! Bang! There goes my new vase
That's right, it is no more.
*It's one of those big inflatable stability balls, an almost perfect perch when playing Wii.
**The vase used to sit on the hearth, next to the fireplace. Now it's on the kitchen table in pieces. Scott is gluing it back together.
No children were harmed in the course of this event.
