Today the school going boy informed me he had learnt a new song....
After lots of silly giggling and blushing he went on to sing....
"A pizza, a pizza, something about chicken and a pizza. McDonald's, McDonald's, something about chicken and a pizza."
I quickly realised he was singing the Pizza Hut song and the 'something about chicken' was in fact 'Kentucky fried chicken'.
Of all the things he has done at school today I wouldn't be surprised if singing this song has made the biggest impact!
I think this because he has not stopped singing it since we came home.
Here are the lyrics to some songs bound to appear at some stage in the early school years...
'Do your ears hang low'
'Do they wobble to and fro'
'Can you tie them in a knot can you tie them in a bow'
'Can you throw them over your shoulder like a continental soldier'
'Do your ears hang low.'
'A sailor went to sea, sea, sea,'
'To see what he could see, see see,'
'But all that he could see, see see''
'Was the bottom of the deep blue sea, sea, sea.'
And the classic...
'A Pizza Hut, a pizza hut'
'Kentucky fried chicken'
And a Pizza Hut'
'Kentucky fried chicken and a Pizza Hut.'
