Uke-Song about Word-Pairs: "PAIRS"


ORIGINAL SONG: "Words", Bee Gees, 1968.
PARODY COMPOSED: Dr. G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2015. updated 2018 and 2020.

BACKGROUND INFO ON THIS TOPIC: This song resulted from our interest in the linguistic phenomenon Word-Pairs, and eventually resulted in the development of extensive lists ('compendia]) of various types, and in the development of nine parody-songs about this fascinating form of wordplay. If you go to our 'full-service' blog 
"Edifying Nonsense", you can find this instructive material. We have also posted there simpler versions of the songs, without the chord-charts. For example you can see the lyrics for "Pairs" by going to this post.
