Question: Is Boogie Woogie poetry easy!?
Get a boogie woogie beat in your head and then sing along!.

8 to the bar

There is a place where we all go!.
We all go there our work to show!.

We post it there for all to see!.
Can you do one as good as me!?

Sing this song to a boogie beat,
Eight to the bar is really neat!.

Stomp with your feet and clap your hands,
And sing your song throughout the lands!.

Strum on your guitar, high and low,
And make the music twang and flow!.

Shake your booty and tap your toes,
That's just the way the rhythm goes!.

There's eight small counts and couplet rhyme,
A hit is wrote most every time!.

So try it now and you will see,
That you are better now than me!.

feel free to add a verse or two!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Happily, I’ll give it a twirl,
It's high time for jitterbug girl!

Silly, pretty, little ditty
Jitterbug rag, sounding witty!.

I am ready to have some fun,
Don’t stop the music, you have won!.

I’ve been serious all day long,
Now, I’m ready to sing your song!.

Where are my dancing blue suede shoes!?
Without that pair, my feet will bruise!.

Where did I put my new white dress!?
What will I do, my hair's a mess!?

Wasting time while music's playing!.
Can’t go now, that’s what I’m saying!Www@QuestionHome@Com

I either sing it or crank up my southern drawl and drip it!.
I like the idea of what you have written, nice and simple,in perfect rhythm!.

!.!.!. here's what I think of music and words!.

What say you of words
Can you not see music!?
The rhythmic syllables
with their musical notes

Vivid visions of rhythm
designed and formed
disyllables, trisyllables
accents long and short

written words musically
translated from simplicity
conducted, orchestrated
with meter; measured by time

(Very Loud)
waltzes, tangos, metal, rock
oldies, classic, even hip hop
they flow and ebb their tides

beautifully to my THOUGHTS!Www@QuestionHome@Com

I feel too old and tired today to boost
the band to make then play a jive or two

for you, for me to cut a rug or do
a little jitter bug across the room

But if the music turns on my energy
I'll phone you up we'll meet at three

Never will I ever ever be better then You!

Kudos Dondi for the wake up call, Neat fun poem!. Www@QuestionHome@Com

It is for you obviously!. So

Kick back and get it in a groove
Get that foot up/down on the move

Tap those symbols and crack that hat
Show the bass where it's really at

Oh yeah man I'm stuck in a funk
*Cue the lights* I'm bring'n the junk

(Somebody go help TD, he'd do it for one us!.)Www@QuestionHome@Com

We go down to the local dance
Like we got fire in our pants

Hang out there for a little while
Dance and strut in the current style

Boy, this rhythm sure is easy
Hope my writing's not too cheesy!

Beat me Dondi, eight to the bar!
You're right most anyone can do it!Www@QuestionHome@Com

has me drumming all pencils long

lean your hat down, across the rim!

pencil solo allegro plate

yo these pencils making blisters
time to dance with kilroys sister!

(you keep playing Dondi! hahaha!)


Dondi taught me how to do this,
And his teaching I do not diss,

He told me how to count the beat,
And make a rhyme that sounds so sweet!.

If I can do it so can you,
Much easier than making stew!.

I love this question, it can be a lot of fun!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Dondi - you're a fine chap too
Instructions for a poet or two
Given courses at no fee
Too bad I'm as dumb as a flea!.

Is 7-8-7-8 okay!? ?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Beat me Daddy,
With a Boogie Beat!
Clap your hands and
Stamp your feet!.

Bet me Daddy,
Eight to the bar!
Martian poets are
gonna go far!

(I note the little men in the white coats are lurking around my door!.!.!.

Dondi, our singin' minstrel man
give hope to us like no one can,

make us dance and jump for joy,
eight, eight rhythm, another toy!


I feel a strange sort of pity or shame when I see a person in the crowd clapping out of time!. It makes me want to go and help them!.Www@QuestionHome@Com


Ay, but what about those poor few
without rhythm and have no clue

are we to remain still seated
while you all dance to beat beated!?!?!?!?!?


Oh! My God - I Feel so Odd!.!.!
my rhythms slow - and I must go

Before I fall down - on my face
'cause I tripped on this lousy lace!.!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
