Guitar note: This tune is played using the strings as percussion (bum bum BUM), with the sound produced from the left hand fingering the chord. The hand pushes down much harder than she normally would in order to make it audible.

Em
What's 
this you wrote -- using my own tune 
With altered Am
words
?  I fear I'll find out soon. 
I cringe and B7
wince 
at each tasteAm
less 
pun. 
What have you B7
done
?

Who authored this--this poetic rape? 
My imagery, twisted out of shape. 
One rhyming word, left there as a crutch: 
This has your touch. 
Filksong writer! 

Am
Par
ody!  Shameless mockery! 
Or Em
is 
it praise in disguise? 
Am
Par
ody!  It's a travesty 
Of my B7
work
!
Why, you jerk! 
Damn your Am
eyes
!   Em
 

Where will it end?  Which of us is safe 
From songs like these, with words that gall and chafe? 
Though this one's done, more will follow after. 
I hear your laughter ... 
Filksong writer!
