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

"Homeoptotes " 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 tired and I'm wanting to go home
I had a drink (but not at home) an hour ago
And it certainly struck home!

This home truth may be shown
That, however far from home
I may be, you can home in on my tone
And show me home to my home.
