Last night Aili was cuddling with me in bed and we were singing to each other. I was choosing selections from Rent and Little Shop of Horrors, but she was being creative and making up her own songs. Here is one of her….”best”:
set vaguely to the tune of “The Old Woman Who Swallowed a Fly”:
There was a horse who swallowed a fly,
I think he died.
There’s a horse who swallowed a horse,
I think he’s dead.
There was a lady who ate a lady,
She’s a real songstress, that girl. I am a little concerned that she is choosing to glorify cannibalism in song, but I will let that slide for now.
