As you may know, I like to have fun coming up with new lyrics to well-known songs. This morning I really blind-sided my wife with one change I made.
The original song is “Wheel In The Sky” by the rock group Journey. The part I altered goes like this:
Oh, the wheel in the sky keeps on turnin’
Don’t know if I’ll see tomorrow
As we sat eating our breakfast, our cats were dutifully observing everything (as they usually do) even though they had been fed about an hour earlier. Then Merlin, the all-black male, started moving around as though he was trying to find a stealthy way to get to my wife’s plate.
And out of nowhere, I conjured this alteration to “Wheel in the Sky” (from Merlin’s viewpoint):
Oh, the eggs on that plate have me tempted
See if some sneaking can get them.
I’m terrible, aren’t I?
