That’s Not How The Song Goes (limerick)

Updated on January 6, 2013

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

      Aside from laughing you have to feel sorry for the guy ;)

      Voted up, funny, and interesting.

      Ah the art of romance has been reduced to ecards leaving no room left for the true romantics :)

      This was a great read :)

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

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

      Some singers just can't hold a melody.

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

      HA HA I would rather be around someone strumming their guitar than someone yelling out the window!
