Week Four!

I Guess That's Why They Call It YouTube
(A parody of "I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues" by Elton John)

Your schnauzer’s birthday,
The neighbor kid’s flute recital.
These home videos, have become a craze,
And sharing them is vital.

So whether it be
The time you fell as you skated,
Or a little league game, you just may find
Your online debut gets “Top Rated”.

And I guess that’s why they call it YouTube,
Where your video, could be posted to view.
Chimps selling VISA’s, brand new big brothers.
Rolling the camera, uploading for others.
And I guess that’s why they call it YouTube.

A girl dressed in meat,
A boy who can “robot” dance.
You could be famous, before you know it.
And YouTube is your chance.

Upload your clips
See if you get any hits
Before you know it, you’ll find yourself
On my Favorites list.

And I guess that’s why they call it YouTube,
Where your video, could be posted to view.
“Fairytales Gone Bad”, DDR mothers.
Rolling the camera, uploading for others.
And I guess that’s why they call it YouTube.

Week Two!

7.5 Habits

That my days at work here are zoo-y.

But finding time brings
A challenge that makes me go PHOOEY!!!
