"Visual " 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.

Hand gestures to a small house,
Its owner gives thanks and in he goes;
A flashback shows him drinking; and then, later on,
He is frowning with eyes closed.

A montage of the sea,
The Pennines, and then Torquay;
Then an endless loop of bellowing folk
Fades into scenes of their plea.
