Posted:OK, here's a bit of sillyness for you mid-week:

Find a song that you can change a word or too in the lyrics of and it suddenly becomes about poi (or any of the twirling/juggling arts).

To start it off I suggest David Bowie's "Boy's keep swinging" - just change every instance of the word "Boys" to "poi's"... This works pretty well through the whole song I think:

Least number of word changes that result in the "best fit" song wins the respect and admiration of the community!

Except instead of "me" use "poi"

*singing: You spin poi round, round baby right around like a record baby round, round, round, round...*

Posted:Yo, P. O. I , Let's spin it!

Poi Poi Baby, Poi Poi Baby
All right stop, spin around and listen
Joey's back with her brand new invention
My hands grab a hold of them tightly.
flow like a harpoon daily and nightly
Will it ever stop? Yo -- I don't know
Turn off the lights and they'll glow
To the extreme I rock the poi like a vandal
Light up the wicks and they'll burn like a candle.

Poi poi Baby spinilla, poi poi Baby spinilla
Poi poi Baby spinilla, poi poi Baby spinilla
