Ruth is cursing my family at the moment. Even before Daisy was born she new I would make the words up to songs, my rendition of ding dong the witch is dead is particularly inaccurate. Since Daisy it’s all gone into overdrive, with the nursery rhymes hardly ever matching the ‘accepted’ versions.
On Sunday I was lambasted for creating a verse where Humpty Dumpty had a sleep to “there was a princess long ago” (Daisy’s current number one song). Only for Daisy to back me up with Humpty Dumpty found a tree. I think it is showing her how to be creative and think beyond the limits of what society demands. Ruth just thinks it’s silly.
Last week while we where in my mothers (due in the world of the internet soon… so watching what i say), and my mum sang “it’s raining it’s pouring, the old man is snoring. He went to bed with a bucket on his head, and then he got up in the morning”. which apparently. aren’t the right words! I always thought they where, but at least we now know where I got it from.
Anyway today, Daisy told Ruth in all seriousness that the Teletubbies where singing it wrong, because they didn’t sing the bucket on his head line. well I always said that you couldn’t trust the BBC.
