List-Format Songs

I ran across this thread on LiveJournal. This is the newest craze, or so it seems. The idea is to take a song (preferably familiar to your audience) and convert it into list format. For example,
  • I address myself to:
    • little baby
  • My instructions to said addressee:
    • hush
    • don't you cry
  • I identify myself as:
    • Daddy
  • I promise to purchase for my addressee, in chronological order:
    1. mockingbird
    2. diamond ring
    3. looking glass
    4. billy goat
    5. cart + bull
  • Here follow the possible malfunctions of said purchased items, in corresponding chronological order (each of which, upon occurrence, shall cause me to purchase the next item on list):
    1. won't sing
    2. turns brass
    3. gets broke
    4. won't pull
    5. fall down
  • My final contingency plan, in the case of the occurrence of all aforementioned malfunctions, is:
    • to proclaim the following:
      • you'll still be the sweetest little baby in town
Isn't that fun? Now, everyone can post with their favorite list-format songs. Let the games begin! (Need ideas? Check out the link in the title of this post.)

thanks Abi! at least someone participated...

you know, I think the original song in this post might have benefited from a flow chart diagram rather than a list...too many codependent events...

:D

yeah, that could be. your blog gives me a headache (color scheme). :) my eyes are going nuts. then again, never mind. i just went to another site and it was the same. maybe it's the pollen.
