Really not sure what this one is about or what "Teffelone" is exactly, but the poems writer Otis Fodder says it's dedicated to someone. I'm guessing that it's a nickname or inside joke of some kind. Anyway here 'tis, sung by my good friend the fantastic Andy and his Apple Boppers!

"Teffelone" Poem by Otis Fodder

Teffelone Teffelone
How do you do?
Cherry Lollipop?
Rockets for Two?

A String and a bag
Can be such a treat
Or one stoplight
And a Pie Made of Meat

Praise the lord, I'm A Man
A Manley Man Man
And you are a woman
You god fearing woman
From the tiny small town
Of Pepe Le Pew
One stoplight and a Pie made of meat
Lord what a treat

Two Two Two Five Three
I Found Love
Two Two Two Five Three
Cause I am...
Teffelone Teffelone Teffelone
I'm I'm
Teffelone Teffelone Teffelone
I'm I'm
Teffelone Teffelone Teffelone
And Teffelone is
the most beautiful word
in the world...

Thanks Otis for the great poem!

    Very skillful editing around "Jingle Bells", I must say. ;)

    Actually it's "Jingle Bell Rock" the Christmas disco version!

    I thought internet music had hit rock bottom with Net Labels and the Grateful Dead dimbulbs over at Archive.Org...but...

    I'm sure the intent is to be "cute" - but when are internet music-types going to get some concepts and ideas of their own and get real?

    With all the war and pain and suffering and interesting goings-on in the world, is this stupid, fake (and annoying) Song Poem stuff all that adult people can come up with?

    It's a shame, really...doesn't ANYONE ELSE who surfs the internet crave music of SUBSTANCE?!

    This pseudo-Song Poem stuff is just wack (bad and sad) and a waste of RapidShare hard drive space.

    Sorry, but it's horrible stuff...really embarrasing...

    "Cute" has already been done and it touches no spiritual or real human nerves (ie; it's all surface and fluff)

    I would like fresh, original concepts and fresh, original approaches to music...and it looks like it ain't gonna happen on the internet...ever.

    It's VERY puzzling to me why internet-based pop music is so consistently dumb and unlistenable (??)

    Any answers?

    Is this fake Song Poem music the legacy our grandchildren are going to remember us by? I guess so.

    YES! Its true! Its all garbage! Junk! Lies! Crap! I love it! I will continue with the non-substantial music! I'm sorry sir but if HAPPINESS doesn't touch a spiritual or human nerve with you I'm sorry! But This makes me and a lot of others HAPPY!

    Ya know, I've re-thought my original post and I've re-listened to your little, cute Song-Poem song things and boy are they great! And the whole concept is great...one of the best internet-based musical concepts I've ever seen!

    Best of luck in the future

    I think somebody needs a little more "Jingle Bell Rock" in their lives.

    Cute...cool...keep being cute, it may serve you later after global warming crosses the point of no return

    I Really think you may be missing the point. So SHUT UP and send in a poem already. Make it about Al Gore and the global warming campaign or about how much you hate my site. I'd love to sing about it!

    Thanks for the offer, but no thanks...I have a few other projects I'm working on.
