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

"Insistence" 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.
Show me the way home because I'm beat.
I'm tired, so if you'd see me home that would be great.
Could you point me to my street?

I've asked you this before:
Will you show me to my door?
But I'll not ask you to show me again,
As you're about to, I'm sure.
