Thread Name: Do male singers have all the best songs?
Subject: RE: Do male singers have all the best songs?
One of the earlier posts reminded me of this simple, comedic, solo (or group) gender bender, done with a paper napkin folded and pinched in the form of a bow:


Bow held as moustache, deep voice:

   You must pay the rent, you must pay the rent, you must pay the rent today!

Bow held to side of head, falsetto:

   I can't pay the rent, I can't pay the rent, I can't pay the rent today!

Bow held as moustache, deep voice, more threatening:

   You must pay the rent, you must pay the rent, you must pay the rent today!

Bow held to side of head, falsetto, more tremulous, on the edge of tears:

   I can't pay the rent, I can't pay the rent, I can't pay the rent today!

Bow held as moustache, deep voice, ferociously trimphuant:

   You must pay the rent, you must pay the rent, you must pay the rent today!

Bow held at throat, as bow tie, heroic tenor:

   I'll pay the rent!

Bow held to side of head, falsetto, squealing in love and gratitude:

   My hero!

Bow held as moustache, in angry aside:

   Curses! Foiled again!
