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

"Blurb " 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.

In this, the writer’s new song,
We hear of an ordinary man
Who, stricken by ill fortune, just wants to get home
By whatever way he can.

Tipped to become a hit,
With its style, panache and wit,
You will find yourself just humming the tune,
So don’t go home without it!
