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

"Hesitation" 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, uh, I don't know. Home?
I want my - my chair? my desk? my cot?
Did I just eat drink? It was so long ago
That I'm not sure. Maybe not.

I might have walked upon -
Land? sea? foam? All those, or none.
But I'm saying... shouting? singing, I think
Something about - no, it's gone.
