Subject: A proud parent writes...

I just thought I'd share this, it being the first song my daughter (age 8) has written without me adding or changing a single word - it's hard not to make suggestions, and she nearly always incorporates them. †But I don't think it'll be long before she has a full parody submission for amiright, too :-)



No Drugs

One day I saw Mum out with a cigarette
You should know by now, by now
That smoking is a drug
Donít do smoking Donít do smoking Donít do smoking Donít do smoking
Donít do smoking Donít do smoking Donít do smoking Donít do smoking

One day I saw Dad taking some beer out of the fridge
Dad, you should know by now, by now
That drinking is a drug
Donít do drinking Donít do drinking Donít do drinking Donít do drinking
Donít do drinking Donít do drinking Donít do drinking Donít do drinking

One day I saw Mum feeding Rich medicine for a cold
Rich, you should know by now, by now
That medicineís a drug
Donít take medical operation Donít take medical operation
Donít take medical operation Donít take medical operation

Donít take drugs Donít take drugs Donít take drugs Donít take drugs

Mum, just settle for a sugar-free lollipop
Itís good
Dad, just go for a pint of OJ
Itís better
Rich, itís only a cold, itíll be gone in a few days

Donít take drugs Donít take drugs Donít take drugs Donít take drugs
Donít take drugs Donít take drugs Donít take drugs Donít take drugs

No drugs!

;D

What a commendable effort there, Philbo! But I think you should tell her that some drugs are actually ok.  :)

Especially beer.

Thanks - I feel I must own up at this point: although the words and music are all Nonie's own, the concept has largely been lifted from my own "Don't do drugs" song, which runs with the punchline "Don't do drugs - apart from that" (if you're interested: http://www.cix.co.uk/~philbo/allsongs.htm#Drugs).  They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery ;-)

I also think she's being a little hard on Richard not being allowed Calpol for his cold - but when I suggested this to her, I was told "It's only a song, daddy".  She has the same sort of attitude as her father: we all sing songs which have meanings we don't believe (from hymns to Eminem, I guess), so if it's in a song it doesn't really matter what the words actually say
