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

"Passive " 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.

Be my way home shown to me!
I’m tired by the drinks that have been bought,
My judgment clouded; whenever beds are discussed
I am tempted by the thought!

Though hills might be marched on,
Oceans crossed, shores walked along,
Yet your ears will be beset by the words
Which are contained in this song.
