Engaged


Last night I proposed to my girl Robin Morgan. Not being the smoothest guy in the world, I handed her the ring and asked "Well, yes or no?" She said yes and then we took this happy picture in which I look frighteningly like a deranged muppet.

Jon, I can't wait for you to hear the song I wrote about you. In fact you DON'T have to wait, cuz I'm gonna sing it for you now.

(This song is private so please don't read along and then try to picture the music in your head if you're not Jon, because the music that's in your head is MY music, and it's for Jon.)


Scap-scap-a-doo (that's the bass)
Scap-scap-a-doo
Scap-scap-a-doo-doo-doo
Scap-scap-a-doo

(then the drums come in)e
Raca-chacka-raca-chacka-BOMP
Raca-chacka-raca-chacka-BOMP
Raca-BOMP-raca-chacka-BOMP-SIZZLE
Raca-chacka-raca-chacka-BOMP

(Here's where I start singing)
I'm so happy!
Uh.
When you do that thing!
So very happy!
Haaa!
Get up and do that funky thing!
Uh.

(Now we're grooving for like 8 bars maybe 16, haven't decided)

(Back to the singing)

Aaaaahh! Jon's gettin' married!
Yeah!
Uh!
Get up and do that funky thing!
Whoh!
Hit it!

(Now a brash chorus of horns pop a funky melody)
Ba-da-dap, ba-da-bap-bap
etc.

(Singing again, this time with more vigor)
Haaah!
Uh!
Get up and do that funky thing!
Jon's getting married!
Whooow!

(Fade out)
