Whimsy

So the cat was sitting in the window, and it reminded me, as it always does, of this song:

I remember being astonished when I discovered that the silly songs my mom sang to me were not children’s tunes passed on by her mother, but rather the top-40 hits of her own childhood. Our pop music lacks whimsy. We need more songs about bullfrogs and what mares and does eat.

    ha ha, lovely blast from the past – my favourite? – “one-eyed, one-horned, flying purple people-eater,
    pigeon-toed, rockandrolling, flying purple people-eater” etc!
