Apologies to Cat Stevens
Wriggle over Wiggles. Move over Electric Mayhem. My seven year old has a mad passion for Cat Stevens. With the zealous adoration of youth he has learned all the lyrics to all Cat's songs, but his favorite is "Father and Son", which sounds hilarious coming from such a small songster.
My other son, who is thirteen going on thirty, likes nothing better than to tease his brother by butchering the lyrics, sometimes with hilarious result. Take this afternoon's effort, sung while his little brother was sitting on the toilet. (To be fair, little brother was singing the original while on the toilet but that's a whole 'nuther issue.)
"Take your time, stink a lot
Stink like centuries of rot
For you may still be here tomorrow
But your friends may not."
Maybe I should get HIM to write my comedies. :-)
