This has been rolling around in my head for about a week, ever since the band at my brother's wedding started the vamp, then apparently decided not to play it.

Parts of it work well, parts of it needed much work (and probably still do!), but I wanted to get this up before events in the comic invalidate the first verse!

Note that this is definitely NOT a 1-to-1 syllable equivalency with the original. Then again, the original changes line counts from the first to the second verse, and it's closer to "lyrics spoken on a note" which imparts a little more flexibility anyway. (I think.) Get the vamp going in your head, and read through it to work out the beat patterns. Some of the lines work equally well with different beat patterns anyway. Given the stretching and compression of lyrics in the original anyway, I'm sure you'll find a way to make it all fit!

All in all, not an easy tune to filk! wacko.gif

Black Miho

Erika is shellshocked
and Largo wants to game
while Piro and Kimiko
are getting past their shame,
Go ask Miho, her world's not the same.

Dom and Junpei face off
and jump down to the roof,
While bish-Ed and his Killtrunk
presumably go "poof"
I'd ask Miho, but she's so aloof.

When PS2 access'ries
call up and tell you you don't care
and you've just met a drunken Gam'ru
and he's snorted in your hair
go ask Miho, I think she's there

When Yuki wants art lessons
while Junko's seeing red
Masamichi's got an event
And boss-san's hurt his head
remember what the l33t d|_|d3 said:
"u53 j00r he4|>"
"u53 j00r he4|>"
"|\|0t l1k3 7h47!"

White Rabbit Jefferson Airplane
(as heard/remembered by me doesn't quite agree with any of the lyrics sites I found.)

One pill makes you larger
and one pill makes you small,
and the ones that mother gives you
don't do anything at all,
Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall.

So if you go chasing rabbits
and you know you're going to fall,
tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
has given you the call
to call Alice, when she was just small.

When the men on the chessboard
get up and tell you where to go
and you've just had some kind of mushroom
and your mind is moving low
go ask Alice, I think she'll know.

When logic and proportion
have fallen sloppy dead
and the White Knight is talking backwards
and the Red Queen's lost her head
remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your head."
"Feed your head."
"Feed your head."
