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

"Ignorance " 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? All right: where?
You tell me I’m tired and that it’s late,
And that I’ve been out drinking but I can’t be sure,
As I’m just not thinking straight.

You ask me where I’ve been
But I can’t say what I’ve seen.
Will I sing some song I don’t really know?
Well, if you hum it I’m keen!
