Speaking personally

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

"Speaking personally " 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.

Listen, between you and me,
I want to go home: is that so bad?
I really couldn’t care if it’s now happy hour,
After all the booze I’ve had.

Well, in all honesty,
There’s nowhere I’d rather be,
Than all warm and comfy, tucked up in bed:
Just speaking personally.
