Headfilk (earworms)

I've had "Banned from Argo" and "Never Set the Cat on Fire" in my head for several days now, alternating.

Most recently, my brain started attempting to sing "Never Feed Espresso to the Dialer" to the tune of "Never Set the Cat on Fire", but failed when
a) I couldn't make it scan
b) I couldn't remember the tune to make it scan to
c) I couldn't remember the original words so that I could remember the tune.

However, I have succeeded in mildly traumatizing several non-fen co-workers by mentioning the song by title. Go, me.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?

-- "The Question Song", Anne McCaffrey
