It doesn't fit the rhythm or structure of the song exactly, but it is based off The Diary of Horace Wimp. Had a scary moment with a wasp (I am very severely EXTREMELY terrified of them) a couple months ago & recounted it to my sister...it went a little bit like so: Download Attachment
Here's a lyric rewrite about an internal problem that plagued our favourite band.
As we all know (well, we do now), Bev is so irresistibly attractive to the ladies that the other band members must have been very much in his shadow, and deeply resented seeing him getting all the fangirl attention. But wise Bev will have come up with a solution "so fine", it had to be immortalised in a lyric. Here is The Diary Of Bev Bevan.
To be sung to the tune of The Diary Of Horace Wimp.
Monday: Hot again, today - He'd be in trouble when they saw he was sexy. They'd want to throw him out of the bus.
Tuesday: "Bev, this is so sad, We never get the girls - it's you they care for. And now we can't take much more! Help us out?"
Chorus (Bev said:) "Don't be afraid, Just log on the forum. And see, amidst their grumbling and shovelling, They give voice to their love - It's Horace Wimp's, the drooling's rife, Log on and find some friends for life, Me, I'm banned (from sheer demand!) But you could make some date night plans.
You can do it! Come on, bandmates!"
Wednesday: Bandmates read the posts, "These are gold, and these are very witty. They've poured out all their love! They've got their faves, oh-oh..." "Ask for forum dates!" (said Bev,) "A carafe full of cheap, tomorrow evening." The band were reeling: "They won't say yes! No way..."
Chorus (Bev said:) "Don't be afraid, Just log on the forum. And see, amidst the muddling and Jungle-ing, There's the ELO love. It's Horace Wimp's - there's sometimes strife - But soon you'll find that's forum life. Lurking's banned! Join their gang And you will meet your lifelong fans."
("You can do it! And you, Richard!")
Friday "Bandmates, this is it," (said Bev) "Just ask the girls on a Summer Night Safari. When they say "Tag me!", do it, guys, woo-hoo!"
Sunday Everybody starts to search: "Where is that special one who says she'll become my wife, For the rest of my life? Here she is!"
Chorus (Bev said:) "Don't be afraid, Just log on the forum. You'll see, amid their travelling and trousering, They need ELO love, It's Horace Wimp's, a way of life - Log on and find a future wife. Be a man, lean and tanned (like me!) And you will have your date nights planned...
... on MON-day, TUES-day, WEDNES-day, THURS-day.. FRI-day, SUN-day..."
lasttrain929: Thank you eloneen, until yesterday I had never heard of these insects. They live a strange life. Not sure about Circada ice cream or pizza though, not for me.....

eloneen: Timeblue I hope you enjoy it! It was sunny and in the 90s here most of last week, with some rain. Today it's cloudy and barely making it into the 60s. Crazy NC weather! ::m1809::

orioles70: with warmer (HOT) weather, the cicadas have gotten noisy. A local news reporter used an app on her phone and said it registered in the mid 80s for dbs (hearing protection recommended). They're not quite that bad in my yard.

orioles70: I was driving to the dump today on a road called Beaver Dam Road when what should cross the road but a pair of beaver (mother and child). Guess they named that road well.
