Anthem

Well, here I am at work. And, really, I'm just to excited to be working on a stinkin' database. So I composed this instead. Cast-on in 45 minutes and counting!

2006 Knitting Olympics Anthem
(to the tune of Get Me to the Church on Time)

There's just a few more hours.
That's all the time we've got. A few more hours
'Fore we cast-on the lot.

I'll be a-knittin' til the morning! Ding dong!
The alarm is gonna chime. Pull out the stopper!
Let's have a whopper! But get me to finish line!

I must keep knitting til the mornin'
Juiced up and purling down the line.
Hon, please don't kiss me;
Whaddaya mean you miss me??!
I've been in this chair the whole blinkin' time!

If I look cranky, then please ignore.
I'm truly happy frogging back once more!

For I must keep knitting til the mornin'
Ding dong! the alarm is gonna chime.
Pour a glass o'wine But don't neglect the time;
And get me to the end, Get me to the end,
For Gawd's sake, get me to the end on time!

I'll be a-knittin' til the morning!
Ding dong! the alarm is gonna chime.
Tease me or snicker, hold back the liquor.
But get me to finish line!

I gotta go to work this morning
Looking like I slept the whole night fine.
Someone whose able please help me with the cable
So I can finish up this edge sublime.

If my clothes are rumpled, please understand.
If the pets look hungry, hold your reprimand!

For I must keep knitting til the mornin'
Ding dong! the alarm is gonna chime.
Coffee and tea me, just don't interrupt me.
And get me to the end, Get me to the end,
For Gawd's sake, get me to the end on time!

Starlight is reelin' home to bed now.
Mornin' is smearin' up the sky. The kids are a'wakin'.
Daylight is breakin'. Just one more row tonight, I cry.

I'm gonna knit again this mornin'
As soon as I unglue my eyes.
Somebody remind me to thank Stephanie McPhee
When I get to the end, when I get to the end
When I get to the end on time!
