On my head.

For some reason my kids say that they have a song on their heads instead of in their heads.  I really have no idea why they say it that way.  It's part of the kids subculture that exists here in this house.  There's all of us, and then there's the parents subculture and the kids subculture.  They have funny jokes that only they get and expressions, like this one, that only they use.  It's funny.  Anyway, speaking of songs in the head, this morning, I woke up with a song running through my mind that was one I "wrote" or made up at least several years back.  I can't do the tune for you all, but here are the words.

Go to sleep.
Go directly to sleep.
And sleep for at least 8 hours.
Go to sleep.
Go immediately to sleep.
and sleep for at l-e-a-st (hold this word out) 8 hours.

It's beautiful, isn't it?  Poetic.

Another song I made up that has lasted through the years is the one I made up when we were lost in Indianapolis for a long time.

You can't get there from here.
You can't get there from here.
You can get there from anywhere else,
but you can't get there from here.

I tell you, I'm a poet.

Funny how kids come with sayings or change the wording on them. Mine are all teens (or older) and instead of outgrowing their clothes, they say their clothes outgrew them.... Where they got that, I don't know!
