Stupid lyrics….

Drawings, Journal

Happy Birthday, Deborah! Everybody head over to her website and tell her!

It is a personal curse that I always have music running through my head….. yet don’t know the lyrics. At best, I know two or three lines, but never in a row, so it becomes this endless loop of nonsensical madness. This morning it was bits of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, a show which I thought I never watched, but apparently I did.


The very worst was when I was taking one medication that I didn’t know I was allergic to (the ‘D’ in Allegra-D) and it kept me AWAKE for three nights in a row. Back then a popular song on the radio had a guy screaming “Heeeeeeeyy, Dad! What do you think about your son nooooowwww?” That played over and over and over and over and over in my head all during the night, every night, for three nights.

Extra-terrific. The regular non-hallucinatory loop is bad enough.

    My earworms don’t stay for long. Yesterday at school I had one, but I can’t even remember what it was now. I always drive them away with Mary Poppins. Her songs are magical. I wish she were my governess. Maybe she could help me clean my house.

    Geez, we must have been separated at birth! I’m always singing too…and usually just the refrain or a few lines over & over….doesn’t everyone do that?

    The differences are, 1)I don’t consider it a curse myself. But others do. I can tell because they throw things at me when I sing. 2)You have a great voice!

    How about this for tomorrow’s shower:

    When I have an earworm, I always replace it with “Life Would be a Dream”, the song from the movie Clue. It’s the equivalent of Brad’s Mary Poppins songs.
