I instafilked the verse of this during one of the chocolate parties for Contata. Only finished it up just now, though (ok, it could get a spoken bridge and another verse or two. But without a lot more good jokes, why?

Chocolate Tonight
ttto Sondheim's Comedy Tonight

Something that tasty
Something that's racy
Something euphoriac,
Some chocolate tonight
Something that's sweeter,
Something that's bitter
Something thobromine
Some chocolate tonight

Nothing that's fruit, nothing that's sour.
Mabye a cute thing made with some flour.

Something enticing,
Maybe some spicing,
Tastes that will make your mind take flight
Hamburgers tomorrow, chocolate tonight!

And since I mentioned it, you all are going to Contata, right? It's in just under 3 weeks, June 20-22nd. With Heather Dale as GOH, Tom Smith as Toast, Nate and Louise Bucklin as IFGs, and Crystal Paul as listener guests...not to mention attendees like Mike Whitaker--it will be a too much fun to package in just one weekend.

You aren't quite fitting the rhyme scheme of the original. Is this deliberate?

Something familiar, something peculiar
Something for everyone
A comedy tonight

Something appealing, something appalling
Something for everyone
A comedy tonight

Nothing with gods, nothing with fate
Weighty affairs will just have to wait . . . .
Old situations, new complication
This time it all turns out alright
Tragedy tomorrow, comedy tonight.

Surely, surely Sondheim didn't write the word "alright". I beg of you ...

What [ profile] osewalrus said. Specifically, where you have "sing" ought to rhyme with "tonight".
