Do stop me now

Tonight I'm gonna have myself 
 a real good time
  I feel alive
   and the world 
    I'll turn it inside out
     floating around in gentle bliss

     slow yourself down
    and join me in my good time
   I'm having a ball
  slow yourself down
 if you want to have good time,
just give me a call

I slowed myself down
 'now I'm having a good time
  I slowed myself down
 yes I'm havin' a good time
I don't want to stop at all

Do slow down
        slow down
	         slow
	          down 

hush
		hush
					hush

Do slow down
			slow down
							I like it
have a good time
 good time
  do slow down
	slow down
					alright

	don't stop me now
	 I'm having such a good time
	  I'm having a ball
	   don't stop me now
	    if you wanna have a good time
	     just give me a call
	      don't stop me now
	     'cause I'm having a good time
	
            do slow me down
           yes I'm havin' a good time
         I don't want to stop at all

“Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a parody” was our prompt at napowrimo.net. I wanted to use this beautiful piece of art I found on The Met, so I took that as a starting point. But how to find a poem or song to use as the base for my parody? I realised how beautifully this sculpture expresses concentration, subtleness, balance. So I looked for a song on speed that I could work with.


I thank Queen for their beautiful song Don’t stop me now, which is a wonderful expression of excitement. My best life would have both queen and this dancer.

    Hahha, loving it!! I love what you did with the verses. You made them dance, and then the photos of the dancer too, just perfect all together.

    And I have just finished rearranging one song too, but have yet to post it. Another fun prompt.

    (WordPress playing tricks on me today, I can’t like posts for some reason. I’ve reported it.)
