Doing's a funny word, funny as hell,

it looks like the sound

of a bang on a bell,

but it's really a verb,

not a bonk on Big Ben,

I don't think I'll ever say 'doing' again.

Going's another 'bout which I'm reserved,

it means "I am leaving"

not "dinner is served".

Words should mean what they look like,

or not mean a thing.

Don't know what I'm doing here,

I'd better be clang.
