Funny Science Songs, Part One

Isaac Asimov was a prolific science fiction writer, writing over 500 books. For example, the movie I, Robot was based on one of his novels. Apparently, Mr. Asimov also had a sense of humor. Here are the lyrics to a song he wrote called, "Clone, Clone of My Own" that is to be sung to the tune of "Home, Home on the Range."

O give me a clone of my own flesh and bone,
With its Y chromosome changed to X.
And when it is grown, then my own little clone
Will be of the opposite sex.

Clone, clone of my own,
With its Y chromosome changed to X
And when I'm alone with my own little clone
We'll both think of nothing but sex.

O give me a clone, hear my sorrowful moan,
Just a clone that is wholly my own.
And if it's an X of the feminine sex,
Oh what fun we will have when we're prone.

(Repeat Chorus)

My heart's not of stone, as I've frequently shown
When alone with my dear little X
And after we've dined, I am sure we will find
Better incest than Oedipus Rex.

(Repeat Chorus)

Why should such sex vex, or disturb or perplex.
Or induce a disparaging tone?
After all, don't you see, since we're both of us me.
When we're making love, I'm alone.

(Repeat Chorus)

Have a great weekend!

P.S. For those in particular parts of the country that are offended by these lyrics, my sincerest apologies and disgust.

Nope no offense taken, I find this to be quite humorous. ;-)

You have a knack for writing. I read about 20 blogs a day, and skim about 30 more, so I mean it! We can all use improvement, but you certainly are better than most I've read.
I've just started a blog, about funny songs (I know, it sounds strange!) but
if you don't mind, I might drop you a line just to get a little advice. Ok?
