Homophonic transformations, Part Two

Some of you may remember my post of June 25, 2012, “Owe Joey! Ode Ill Height!”, in which we played around with words after the manner of Howard L. Chace’s book, Anguish Languish. Some of you may be trying desperately to wipe the memory of it from your brain.

Well, I’m in the mood to do it again.

I hope you are too.

Eye know! Less zing “Venue Whisker Porno Store”!

Alter gather know, less zing:

Venue whisker porno store,
Mates know deference ooh hue ore,
Venue Vishnu Pawnee’s tar
Oz streamer stew...

Lacquer bowl tout off dub loo,
Pates tips inning seize youth rue,
Venue whisker pawn as tar
Yard ream scum drew.

Well, that’s enough of that. Just in case you couldn’t make it out, here is Walt Disney’s original, in context (5:39).

Thanks, Jeannelle, for letting me know. I have no idea how that happened. It should be okay now.

The original always brings a tear to my eye, as does your version, albeit for an entirely different reason :-)

Shooting Parrots: Thank you, I think. (Compliments are always nice to receive. I hope one day to receive one.)
