Lyrics for Singable Satire/Wordplay: "PAIRS", tributing the Bee Gees

PARODY SONG-LYRICS

ORIGINAL SONG: "Words", Bee Gees, 1968.
PARODY COMPOSED: Dr. G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2015, updated 2018 and 2020. This song is the first in a series of nine parodies dealing with Word-Pairs. The links at the bottom of this post will take you to the lyrics for the other songs in this series.

PAIRS

(to the tune of "Words") 


Pairs -  binomial phrases. There's  (bi-NOAM-yuhl)
(Compared to single entities)
Flair, as seen in "wear and tear",
Where pairs submerge identities. 

Two nouns joined with conjunction --
AND serves that "form and function", sometimes OR.
Verb-pairs and adjectives unite;
And "fish" and "fowl" with NEITHER/NOR. 

"Shouts and murmurs": such a phrase
Explains the "ins and outs" to me.
With "back to front" I'm in a daze,
Enhancing "fears and doubts" to me. 

I cringe at "one and only" words,
No single words I voice ...
So "near and dear",
Word-pairs are what can make all "guys and dolls" rejoice.
