Abba tribute

Once upon a time, I watched Mamma Mia. And no offense to any of you, but it was pretty much the stupidest show I've ever seen. I was totally disappointed because I was really looking forward to it.

After those 2 hours were wasted and gone, those songs were stuck in my head. Several hours after watching the show, I was singing, "Money, money, money, must be funny, in a rich man's world," over and over. Eva just sat there watching me with this confused look on her face, intensely concentrating on my words. I looked at her to see what she was doing, and she said, "Henry, Henry?" She thought I was singing about her beloved frog. So I did. I changed the words to say, "Henry, Henry, Henry, must be Henry, in Eva's world."

And thus started a trend. Any 2 syllable word that Eva loves must be put in the song about "Eva's world." She simply asks me to sing it with new words by repeating the word she wants twice. Barbie, Bubba, baby, Barney, candy, Henry, sucker, Annie (she is recently in love with the little red-headed version from the musical), nursery, Daddy, name it, we've put it in the song.

Although the movie was a waste of time, I'm glad I watched it so we could institute this song game. I know it won't last long, but I love it. "Blogging, blogging, blogging, must be blogging, in Mama's world." See? It even works for adults. Try one of your own songs to that tune. You just might get hooked.
