Uke-song: "MERGERWOCKY", A Lewis Carroll tune, dedicated to Dr. J. J.

PARODY COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, 2014. For moreexplanation of the origin of this song, should you be interested (and to see the lyrics without the chord-chart indications), return to the corresponding post on "Daily Illustrated Nonsense". Click HERE

In a recent post, we fantasized that the rock-band "The Animals" sang the words of the Lewis Carroll poem "Jabberwocky" as an extension of their  1964 hit version of the American folk ballad "House of the Rising Sun", using the same rock format  (in a driving 12/12/beat). Dr.J.J., the target of many dedications on these blog-pages, loved doing spoofs based on that iconic pop-tune. 

The introductory verses of this spoof were written more recently, but our 2014 parody-version of the folksong, relating to hospital restructuring in the province of Ontario, derives from an earlier period starting in the 1990s.
