Tyler headshot (TDI-G&S)

Tyler is an athlete with no discernable athletic skill. He dearly loves all things athletic; and, if his talent matched his enthusiasm, he might be as good as he thinks he is.

Tyler was part of the season’s first romantic pairing, hooking up with the equally useless Lindsay, and that pairing is his aspect most relevant to the TDI-G&S compilation.

Tyler's Theme

“Things Are Seldom What They Seem” (verses 1-3) from H.M.S. Pinafore

(click link below for the MIDI file)

H.M.S. Pinafore, 15

H.M.S. Pinafore, 15. "Things are seldom what they seem"

Tyler's theme

Things are seldom what they seem,
Skim milk masquerades as cream;
Highlows pass as patent leathers;
Jackdaws strut in peacock’s feathers.

Black sheep dwell in every fold;
All that glitters is not gold;
Storks turn out to be but logs;
Bulls are but inflated frogs.

Drops the wind and stops the mill;
Turbot is ambitious brill;
Gild the farthing if you will,
Yet it is a farthing still.

Tyler/Lindsay Relationship Theme

The woman of the wisest wit” (verses 3/4/refrain, “My natural instinct teaches me”) from Princess Ida

(click on the first link above for the MIDI file)

My natural instinct teaches me
(And instinct is important, O!)
You’re everything you ought to be,
And nothing that you oughtn’t, O!

That fact was seen at once by you
In casual conversation, O!
Which is most creditable to
Your powers of observation, O!
—servation, O!
—servation, O!
Your powers of observation, O!

Then jump for joy and gaily bound,
The truth is found—the truth is found!
Set bells a-ringing through the air—
Ring here and there and everywhere—
And echo forth the joyous sound,
The truth is found—the truth is found!
