While driving home from the beach today we decided on a little family sing-a-long as we drove down the Malecon. Nothing like having your four-year-old belt out the words to a song called "On My Butt" (her emphasis squarely on the "BUTT") to bring a family together.
The words, for those of you who'd like to sing along at home, are as follows (sing them with feeling):
On my butt there is a picture of a lady
I put her there to get her off my mind
From the start our love was tainted
So I had her picture painted
On my butt, I left the girl, I left behind
The song was written by a guy Milton used to know named Chet something-that-starts-with-a-W. I've been listening to Mark sing it for years and years and during this trip, I finally got to listen to Chet's recording of it. Turns out there are versus and stuff! Who knew! Milton promises me he'll get the tape converted to a digital file one day. And when he does (someday) I'll promise to share the original with you. There's also a track on there that includes the phrase, "Oh, I wanna be there, I wanna be there, when Jim and Tammy Baker meet the Lord" (I'm paraphrasing). It's good stuff, yo. EVEN for a girl who's not into the Country tunes.
