 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Oh by Jove and by Jehovah, you have set my heart aflame
(And to you, you Casanova, my reactions are the same)
I would sing thee tender verses but the flair, alas, I lack
(Oh go on, try to versify and I'll versify back)

Well, let me see now, Cherry Pies ought to be you
(Autumn skies ought to be you)
The Pulitzer prize ought to you
(Romeo in disguise ought to be you)

Columbine ought to be you
(Sparkling wine ought to be you)
All of Beethoven's Nine ought to be you
(Every Will Shakespeare line ought to be you)

You are so enticing, I'm starting to shake
(You are just the icing to put on my cake)
You mean I'm yummy, heaven's blue ought to be you
(Heaven too ought to be you)

Everything super-do ought to be you
Ashe Pudells ought to be you
(Orson Wells ought to be you)
Uncles like Kip Cornell ought to be you

(Towels from Ritz hotel ought to be you)
Each Snow White ought to be you
(Ambrose' light) hey, that's good (ought to be you)
Eleanor wrong or right ought to be you

(Errol Flynn loose or tight) watch it ( ought to be you)
You are so exciting, I can't even laugh, want to top that one
(If you're fond of biting, I'll bite you in half)
To continue, Whistler's ma ought to be you

(Eliot's pa ought to be you)
Everything hip-hurrah ought to be you
(Ought to be you), ought to be you, (ought to be you)
Ought to be you (ought to be you) ought to be you (ought to be you)

Ought to be you!
