My Father's Daughters are Weird!

I grew up listening to The Unicorn by The Irish Rovers, Snoopy vs. The Red Baron by The Royal Guardsmen, The Partridge Family Greatest Hits, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley, Tom Dooley by The Kingston Trio, This Land Is Your Land by Woody Guthrie, and many others I can't remember.

Well, my dad has warped my little 8 year old sister too!

We were in my dad's truck last week where the following conversation took place:

Sis: Sissy, have you heard the Little Willie Song?

Me: No

Sis: It goes like, (singing)

"Little Willy, Willy won't go home
But you can't push Willy round
Willy won't go, try tellin' everybody but, oh no
Little Willy, Willy won't go home"

Me: Nope, haven't heard it.

Sis: Daaaaadddd, will you play Sissy the Little Willy (by Sweet)


Sis: Did you like it?

Me: Yes, it sounds familiar.

Sis: How about the Rollerskate song?

Me: Nope

Sis: It goes like, (singing)

"I rode my bicycle past your window last night
I roller-skated to your door at daylight"

Me: Nope

Sis: Daaaadddd, can you play Sissy the Rollerskate song?? (which is actually Brand New Key by Melanie)


Sis: Did you like it?

Me: Yes

Yes, my sister knew EVERY word to each of these songs.

Later, we went through the same conversation with her 7 year old friend in the truck.

So tonight, when I went to Wal-Mart, what did I buy? Rock n' Roll of the 70's 4 CD set....which included....Brand New Key and Little Willy!

We are warped children! :-)

Them's some good drinkin' music there...but then again, in Yuma, everything's good drinking music -- even silence...
