That’s Not How The Song Goes (limerick)

Police arrest minstrel

Each night to her window I’d come

And there on my guitar I’d strum

Till chorus would flow

From hearts set aglow

Why don’t you just go home you scum

Has no wish to be the girl you require.

Playing Black Metal at 3am outside her window was never likely to succeed LOL :-))

Some people just have no sense of romance. This one is a classic, very funny.

Gotta love his persistence. Must've been an awful singer. Or maybe it was his choice of songs? I was serenaded once. Embarrassing. But romantic to think about. Good one, Mhatter99.

Some guy actually did this for me in college. Embarrassing to say the least! Did not work either.

Try serenading her when she's awake. Maybe it'll be more appreciated!
