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

"Synchisis" 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 to me how home to go:
Tired limbs, tired head, with skin green, eyes red.
I had a little drink; it had a larger effect:
Booze with once filled, now with dread!

Where I go, there I find
What is laid down I don't mind
Yet you will hear this; I shall call it out:
"Lost, am I? Oh, I'm resigned."
