(verb) to forget the words to one's own song while performing it

origin: from English singer-songwriter Will Varley's penchant for doing so during his shows; popularised by fans of Varley and Frank Turner
alternate version: Will Varley sometimes refers to the practice as "Turner-ed it" or "Turner-ed it" as a "clapback" to his friend Turner
*Note: Starting during the Frank Turner livestreams during the 2020 pandemic, fans decided that those participating in the livestream drinking game had to take a drink each time either artist forgot his own lyrics.
Frank Varley 'd the lyrics to "Photosynthesis" again! Everyone take a drink!

An amazing gent, yet also a chronic masturbator. His name signifies greatness and power. Nobody messes with Varley, not even Varley messes with Varley. If you have a Varley in your life you don't want to loose him.
Guy 1: Have you met Varley
Guy 2: Of course! Who hasn't met Varley? That guy is a legend!

‘That kid is so Varley’

Varleys Law of User Satisfaction simply states that the level of approbation you will receive for any IT work that you undertake is inversely proportional to the level of effort you put into it.
If you spend months working on a complex project and iron out all bugs - you'll get no more than a pat on the back.
On the other hand, knock a quick one off using a simple script and users will bow down before your awesomeness.
Roger had spent half his life perfecting the program and it was now complete, despite the breakup of two marriages, recurring alcoholism, a serious bout of OCD relating to the backslash key and a pathalogical fear of daylight but typical of Varley's Law, all his boss wanted to talk about was how cool the version of Minesweeper that Roger had made in Excel on his lunchbreak was.
