Great Rhymes

POSTED — June 10, 2014 — Opinions

Incredibly clever lyrics by Gershwin in this great Sophie Tucker 1928 version of 'The Man I Love'

Maybe I shall meet him Sunday
Maybe Monday, maybe not ;
Still I'm sure to meet him one day
Maybe Tuesday will be my good news day

Because it SOUNDS like

Maybe I shall meet him someday
Maybe one day, maybe not.
Still I'm sure to meet him one day,
Maybe two day will be my good news day.

And this made me wonder -- if you are born deaf, can you grasp these rhymes?

Because here is the American Sign Language version in a Pina Bausch ballet.
