I've had a go.  Tell me what you think.  Does it have potential?

Verse 1

If you're a Beatles fan you might
want to visit the beatlesbible site
You'll find info you never knew
And can join the forum too
You can say which tracks give you delight
And which you think are total shite
Ask if Paul was right about JFK
And find out who thinks John was gay


It's the worlds best website about the worlds best band
It's so marvellous you'll feel you're in
So dont be a fool like The Fool On The Hill
Visit beatlesbible it's such a thrill
beatlesbible.com You'll have a ball
A splendid time is guaranteed for all

Verse 2

Register and have your say
On the hot topic of the day
Is Mr Moonlight underrated?
Does Yoko deserve to be so hated?
The forum members are really nice
So join today - don't think twice
His username I cannot say
But Ringo's on there everyday

I want to create a project that has everybody's input if they want. I want to see if Fab Forum users can create extra lyrics for "I Am The Walrus". Everybody can contribute as long as:

a. The words are just nonsense

b. It follows the rhyme and word structure of the original song

I call it "The Previously Unknown 'I Am The Walrus' Lyrics Project".

I want to have a devoted thread to the project but I don't know where I'd put it. Does anybody know where I should put the thread? or more importantly, does anybody have a contribution?

The difficulty would be that whilst John's lyrics for IATW, and all of his other nonsensical writings, looks like gobbledegook nonsense of the highest order its very difficult to actually write as there is a very sharp mind behind it all. Anyone can come out with garbage gibberish of the highest order, making it of interest, funny and actually quite clever is where it gets tough. Anyone can throw out random words and phrases, very few people could have gotten close to writing 'I Am The Walrus', 'Good Dog Nigel' or 'We Must Not Forget The General Erection'.

I am interested however to see if folk here can get close to what John wrote - and i think John would be interested too. 


No idea where to put it. Games, songs or Pimp Your Own Stuff but it doesnt neatly fit into any of those. Maybe Joe could create a sub-forum in PYOS (can you create a sub-sub-forum?) for Beatle Bible projects but the question is will any of these projects last thru to completion before folk wander off due to outside commitments, lack of interest, and/or lack of commitment and input from others.
