Don Gato

Pin It

Today, I was walking across the yard from my neighbor's house. They have a couple of annoying cats (Flat Cat and Pumpkin Head (aka Xerox)) that are always underfoot. For whatever reason, the Underfoot cats caused my brain to start my mouth singing a song I learned when I was in 4th or 5th grade. I always liked the song, and if I recall correctly, it was a class favorite that we all liked to sing whenever our music teacher let us.

I was distressed to find, however, that I could not recall all of the lyrics. Thank goodness for the internet! I found the lyrics, and for the edification of my readers, I am including a link to them.

It's a funny song, and if you know the tune, it's pretty catchy, too. I might even sing it for you, if you ask.

That looks like it would be a funny song to hear you sing, so next time I see you, i'm definately asking you to sing that song.

I hope you are keeping these little stories. When you get to be 70 and you want to write your memoirs, these things will help jog your memory.

Ah, you remember Mrs. Jacobs making us sing this stuff. I tend to remember her making us sing "This Land Is Your Land" quite often, grinding the Communist propaganda into our heads. (Am I kidding? Who knows?)

It's weird, I was just trying to remember lyrics to that song a week or so ago. I tried to sing it to Joseph one night and couldn't get much past the first verse.

Hey, do remember "The Boogie Woogie Ghost?" :) Man, I hated that song. And we sang it over and over.

Hey, speaking of cats, my parents have kittens. :)
