As you might have guessed, I love the English Language, but what you might not know is I am also passionate about music. I can sing a little, can’t play an instrument, and can’t read music to save my life. Yet, music has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember.

One of the things I like to do is write new lyrics for existing songs, usually with a humorous or political bent. I present to you one of these songs for your enjoyment.

Time of the Season 2016(Sung to the tune of “Time of the Season” by The Zombies)

It’s the time of the season
When we protest guys
In this time, cisgenderists are easy
To mock and try to call them scum

We’ll protest on your campus
Protest lots
We never go to class much
It’s the time of the season for fee-fees

What’s your name? (What’s your name?)
Who’s your daddy? (Who’s your daddy?)
He’s cis, but his pronoun is Zi
Has he taken (Has he taken)
Any time (Any time)
To ditch, to ditch all of his white privilege?

Tell it to him slowly
He’s so dumb
He really has to know
It’s the time of the season for fee-fees.

What’s your name? (What’s your name?)
Who’s your mommy? (Who’s your mommy?)
Is she, is she oppressed like me?
Has she taken (Has she taken)
Any time (Any time)
To strike, to strike against the patriarchy?

Tell it to them always
Never quit
Now run off to your safe space
‘Cuz it’s the time of the season for fee-fees…
