Listening to Lyrics

The Easter Bunny brought three of our girls clearance MP3 players.  He must have known we have a long trip coming up that includes a lot of time in the car!

For each girl, I downloaded a free audio book (from here) and a bunch of songs.  One soundtrack I included was from the musical Annie.  It is one of my favorites and has been since I was a little girl.  Over the last couple of weeks, there has been an uptick in singing around my house--especially from one specific musical.

This morning, I woke up to two girls belting out "You're Never Fully Dressed without a Smile!"  It was a great alarm clock and I lay there smiling while I quietly listened in.  Then the line Who cares what you're wearing on Main Street or Savile Row . . .

"No, it's not Samuel Road, it's Several Road!"

Thereafter followed a little bickering back and forth until the oldest girl quieted the argument with, "You guys, it's Main Street or Av-e-nue!"

Now to explain Hey, Hoboman.  Hey, Dapper Dan. is actually Not Hey, Zapperman.  Hey, Damn her damn.


  1. My girls have watched that movie a few times (or more) recently. I often hear "Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya..." and randomly throughout the day, "We love you, Miss Hannigan!" :)

  2. "Damn her damn" hahahahaha! Sounds like something my kids would say.

  3. Q loves to sing "lucky me lucky me, look at what I'm dripping with...little girls". probably not the most appropriate song, but it makes me smile.
