The Drama Queen builds her vocabulary

DQ is experimenting with new music. After our success with the Wicked soundtrack, we've moved on to The Sound of Music and The Music Man. Since small children love silly words, it is no surprise that her favorite song is "Shipoopie." Sample lyrics:


Well, a woman who'll kiss on the very first date
Is usually a hussy
And a woman who'll kiss on the second time out
Is anything but fussy
But a woman who'll wait till the third time around
Head in the clouds, feet on the ground
She's the girl he's glad he's found
She's his Shipoopi


Very family-friendly. But it gives her a taste for the historical usage behind another favorite song of hers, One Thousand Sarahs by Eddie from Ohio. Sample lyrics:


Sarah's the kind of girl who's 3 feet tall, but she's built like an Amazon woman.
Sarah's the kind of girl who's 3 feet tall, but she's built like an Amazon woman.
And all the boys think she's pretty.
And all the girls think she dresses so well.
And all the teachers think that she's the smartest one in class,
But I think- she oughta go to Hell.

Sarah's the kind of girl who pierced her ears years before anybody else.
Sarah's the kind of girl who pierced her ears years before anybody else.
And all the mothers say her mother was-
And all the mothers say her mother was a slut
And we couldn't pierce our ears till we turned 12 no matter what
And I think,
Well you know what I think.



We've managed to stave of the word, "Hell," but she definitely now knows both "Hussy" and "Slut." Lovely.

Did you see the recent "Family Guy" where Peter sang all of Shipoopie?! It was wonderful! I was sad that Buddy Hackett didn't live to see it. (He is dead, right?)
