Recently, Samu's been singing "My Favorite Things" from The Sound Of Music. Who knows where he's learning it, the Kindergarten Glee club perhaps. After school programs make kids do the weirdest things.
Naturally, boys can't leave well enough alone. After stamping the tune into their heads, they decided to play with the lyrics and change it to some of their favorite things.
Raindrops on roses
And whiskers on kittens
Fart, burp and poopies
And boogers and buttocks
The adaptation went on. And on. Rodgers and Hammerstein must be turning in their graves. They should be proud, however - they got my numbskulls to goof off at 3/4 timing. Not an easy time signature.
When they were done bastardizing that song, we moved on to another classic: "Saturday Night," by the Bay City Rollers (there's a trivia question).
I figured it's also a good way to teach them how to spell Saturday.
So I chanted the chorus, "S-A...T-U-R-D-A-Y...NIGHT!"
Then I asked them, "What does that spell?"
"Turd!! No, no, no..Turdy!"
Honestly. I'm not even gonna go there with Aretha.
