Another song by Noah

Chimpanzees swimming on the world

Chimpanzees swimming on the world

Oh, wasty whysty wasty

princey

Shana's billy goat house!

"Chimpanzees swimming on the world," Noah says, "is a scary song."

The tune is vaguely reminiscent of "Walking in a Winter Wonderland".


After singing this again at dinner, Noah says, "Daddy, are you going to write 'Chimpanzees swimming on the world' on your computer?"

O tempora, o mores!

What exactly is the problem with the times and manners?

When I was a wee lad comin' up, I'll have you know, I sang me parents songs without requiring that they be blogged and turned into songs on Myspace!

And what a treasury of entertainment we've forever lost thereby. :)

Also weirdly reminiscent of Tom Waits' "Misery's the River of the World", although I hope that, scary or not scary, it's not quite so dark.
