Obviously fiction! I've been happily married for 41 years.

My man’s veiled message unclear I’ve dallied for four long years Sis, have I ever been Fooled! Turns on the charm on a whim Parades what you saw in him Just a tad so you are Fooled There’s not a ring not a vow no bent knee no not now no ball and chain allowed His blue eyes like a hot Summer’s day vertigo My inflamed lips can’t tell him where to go Fooled, forever fooled Without a snow white gown Relationship’s cooled Steals gravy and biscuits Cold eats with no thought to please Won’t ask the right question Less fortunate I’m on lease Milk~of~the cow (yuck) Fooled, forever fooled This fish won’t take a bite Swimming four long years And it just ain’t right Holding out for a big rock Giant diamond So fooled I’m just a fool His fibbing fool April first Fooled Fooled, forever fooled The most beautiful bride Walking grand aisle A princess carriage ride Kitchen Boss creates tiered cake Breaking through the clouds The top of all wedding cakes To Die For! Fooled, forever fooled A virgin’s honeymoon Negligee delight Handsome would make me swoon We’d dance among starry night Off like a rocket Yet fooled Precious years Sportingly fooled April first fooled Fooled, forever fooled Could be a small chapel Hanging off a cliff No bridesmaids in chapel I just want to be married To him I think I love Over the threshold carried Am I Dreaming? Fooled, forever fooled (Fooled, forever fooled) All that I dream of (All that I dream of) A fairytale bond (A fairytale bond) Happy ever after (Happy ever after) Instead I do nothing but Stay in a bad mood Oh fool! Stupendous fool I’m just a fool His fibbing fool Sportingly fooled Worm-on-hook fooled April first Fooled 11/21/2021 To The Tune Of - - - Musicals - - - Part One Sponsor: Natasha Scragg Original song: Food Glorious Food Musical: Oliver Original lyrics below Food Glorious Food musical Oliver Song by Laurence Jeffcoate Is it worth the waiting for If we live 'till eighty-four All we ever get is Gruel Everyday we say our prayer Will they change the bill of fare Still we get the same old Gruel Theres not a crust Not a crumb Can we find Can we beg Can we borrow or cadge But there's nothing to stop us from getting a thrill When we all close our eyes and imagine Food, glorious food Hot sausage and mustard While we're in the mood Cold jelly and custard Peas, pudding and saveloys What next is the question Rich gentlemen have it, boys In-die-gestion! (Uggh) Food, glorious food We're anxious to try it Three banquets a day Our favorite diet Just picture a great big steak Fried, roasted or stewed But food Wonderful food Marvelous food Glorious Food! Food, glorious food What is there more handsome Gulped, swallowed, or chewed Still worth a king's ransom What is it we dream about What brings on a sigh Piled peaches and cream about Six Feet High! Food, glorious food Eat right through the menu Just loosen your belt Two inches and then you Work up a new appetite In this interlude Then food Once again Fabulous food Glorious food Food, glorious food Don't care what it looks like Burned, underdone, crude Don't care what the cooks like Just thinking of growing fat Our senses go reeling One moment of knowing that Full Up Feeling Food, glorious food (Food, glorious food) “What wouldn't I give for (What wouldn't I give for) That extra bit more (That extra bit more) That's all that I live for (That's all that I live for) Why should I be fated to Do nothing but brood” Magical food Wonderful food Marvelous food Fabulous food Beautiful food Glorious Food

Hi Kim, a very strong entry. Love the way you've lightened the feeling of your song. It brings out the fighter in you I think. I also appreciate you adding the original lyrics beneath your own so that it is clear to all who read it just how well in sync your version is with the original. Well done on your placement in the contest. Warm wishes. And thank you for entering.

This reminds me of so many things I remember from the early 70's. "Less fortunate I’m on lease Milk~of~the cow (yuck)" in particular "they won't buy the cow if they can get the milk for free. Yuck! Yuck! Great poem Kim.

I think this is the longest poem you've ever wrote. You did a marvellous job with the song. Oliver will always be a favourite of mine. Hugs.
