Hi

I've been lurking for a couple of months and have read the FAQs[1] so I thought it about time to delurk.

I'm not going to go on about the number of books I've read or how long I've been a fan but I thought I'd try my hand at the noble art of filking. I warn you now that it's probably not as good as you're used to but then you've been spoilt *grin*.

Well here goes ...

(You Used To Be) A Newbie Too

TtTO (They Long to Be) Close To You
by Hal David/Burt Bacharach

Why do tags always disappear
Every time they are near?
Just like me you used to be
A newbie too

Then come flames, never very kind,
Every time. May I remind?
Just like me you used to be
A newbie too

On the day of your first post
Clue fairies got together
And they noticed that you might not have a clue.
So they sent a nice mail
To help you fit in
And next thing you could do it right

That is why there are no more flames
AFP then proclaims:
Just like me you used to be
A newbie too

On the day of your first post
The oldbies got together
And they noticed that you might not have a clue.
To read the FAQ,
They told you to do
And next thing you could do it right

That is why there are no more flames
AFP then proclaims
Just like me you used to be
A newbie too

Just like me you used to be
A newbie too

I thank you. exit, stage left

By the way, there probably isn't any need to follow up on this. Unless you're offering chocolate covered cats with breasts. That's different.
