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

"Asides " 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.

Show me the way to go home!
I'm fed up of hanging round in town.
I had a little drink about an hour ago.
Now, where did I put it down?

No matter where I roam—
I could do with getting home—
You will always hear me singing this song.
Song? This is scarcely a pome!
