I went out of my way and memorized this once.   
By November 2012 I had this song down pat. I was able to get through the entire thing with ease. I never stumbled or broke rhythm. I was so proud.   
By December 2012 I started to stutter so badly I could barely get a syllable out whenever I tried to speak.   
By February 2013 I fell completely mute. To this day I still can't speak.   
The thing that upsets me the most about my ordeal?   
Not being able to prove I can sing this song.

Can I ask why you've become mute? Have you been given an explanation?


<-- Related to the content kinda.. sorta... maybe.

I have no qualms in answering questions.   
It's a little hard. I've been sick for a long time, the muteness is only the most recent in a long line of symptoms. Doctors have a lot of theories as to which ties into what and why.   
For muteness, here's my theory. I think it makes sense and it's currently being investigated:   
There's a nerve called the Vagus Nerve that I think my body might have fallen out of resonance with. It's pretty complicated but simply put it deals with three things: the throat, heart rate and digestion.   
It regulates how fast your heart goes as well as how efficiently your body can digest food, it also controls your swallowing and the vibrations you make within your throat to create sound.   
As far as I'm concerned, I believe that everything still works in a way. I know I still have my voice at least. I feel that I just fell out of sync with this one nerve and because of that, a lot of key things, such as my speech, are really misaligned and have been rendered useless.

Oh man.   
I'm really sorry for that.   
But still, I believe you. I mean, it would be difficult as hell to learn the song, but it's not impossible. Still, you could prove it in one way. Like, write it down on paper or something. But yeah, I got your point.   
I wish you for the best and for your voice to someday come back.   
Hugs, bro.

I appreciate that.   
You can bet for the couple of weeks I could speak and confidently knew this song, I abused it to no end. My family was both annoyed yet somewhat impressed.   
When I lost my voice I once did type it out for a friend simply to prove I still had it memorized (I actually do still &quot;sing&quot; it maybe once a week, just to check to see if my voice came back).   
The real thing that's impressive about this song is the speed at which you have to sing it. It's one thing to know the words but a whole other thing entirely if you can keep pace with Yakko.

Sounds really awesome.
I'm actually learning "Tongue Twisters" by Danny Kaye, because for the heck of it.
And yes, I agree to the fullest.

I never heard of that song.   
Maybe I'll look it up and memorize it so that I may have two songs to irritate my loved ones with upon the return of my voice.   
   
Good luck, I'm sure you'll get it soon enough.
