Subject: Some help for you on the Modern Major General

Written By: agrimorfee on 01/10/08 at 1:23 pm

Here is the Youtube link for "I Am A Very Model of Modern Major General" from the movie The Pirates Of Penzance. (the song actually starts at about :37)

Now, what stinks about this is that a huge chunk of the official lyrics are skipped from the performance, but what is extremely helpful for budding parodists is that the 2nd verse is first performed at a snail's pace, then performed at double speed. This should guide you as a pacing check for any of the verses you attempt.

Good luck and good writing!
