Ballad Meter

I just read the latest xkcd.

Read the first stanza of Emily Dickinson's poem "Death."

Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
And Immortality.

Now read it to the tune of the Gilligan's Island theme song.

Now everything in Ballad Meter is ruined as well.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
