This is part of the complete Exercises in Song cycle being released on this site.

"Antiphrasis" is a bonus exercise, not to be found in Raymond Queneau's original Exercices de Style nor in the translations.

To be sung to the tune of "Show Me The Way To Go Home". More information here.

Look at you there, at your work:
You're so wired you have to leave your seat.
You pop off to the loo and then straight away
Feel a tingling in your feet.

It matters that you're there
Breathing dry and flattened air,
So you'll never make a sound while you toil
Tirelessly, without a care.
