New Jen's Horde


Saturday, June 10, 2006

Apparently we're not only bad parents, we're turning our kids into nerds, too.

 
After mocking Gwen Stefani's Hollaback Girl here in my blog, I decided to download it so that I could hear the unedited version. The kids loved how catchy it was and it became a favorite (I won't play it when your kids are in the car, I promise.)

Anyway, they started calling it "The Shit Song" because they didn't know the title, and if you've heard the lyrics you can see how this would seem reasonable. I let them know that that wasn't the title, asked them to stop saying that, and I told them the song is actually called Hollaback Girl and please use that title from now on.

So, thinking I had it all under control, I was again confronted with our family's deeply entrenched geekhood when Anya said, "Can we listen to that song, you know, Holodeck Girl?"

Oh heaven help them, there was no hope for them, was there?

Comments:
LOL, reminds me when I used to go around the house singing "Shake shake shake...shake your boobies!!!" or "On the Goood Sh*t...Lollipop!!"

Hmmm...
 
Astute kids you got there Jen.. You know I've listened to that song (and seen the clip on tv) heaps of times and not even realized what a shit song it was!
 
We are also nerds and my husbands greatest ambition is to have our daughter quoting Monty Python by the time she is three!!
 
Well Holodeck Girl beats the Shit song. Love Sheri's comment.

SNL did a commercial for a K*Tel album of songs we don't know the lyrics to...it was terribly funny. I should turn off my radio and try to think of some of them.

Here's one I got wrong for a long time..."Rags, verible Rags...and if it was warm she wouldn't wear much more..." I found out later that was "Raspberry Beret." =o
 
Ahhh, sounds just like home. Hey, there's a lot worse stuff to be than geeky.
 
our #2 (and, I am just now realizing what a terrific pun *this* is..) used to sing, "there's a bathroom on the right..."

In his defence, however, he is deaf in one ear and hard of hearing in the other. Either way we all crack up everytime we hear "there's a bad moon on the rise.." Yes, yes, we mock the hearing impaired child in our home, and pretty much anyone else in the family who messes up in a funny way.
 
A sign of my age: The first time I heard that song I thought she was saying (and I only wish I were making this up): I ain't no harlem black girl! WTF? Harlem black girl?

I can remember when I was the one in my family that knew all the lyrics to all the songs. Look what I've been reduced to. (sigh)
 
I love all these misheard lyrics!

They crack me up :-)
 
I stumbled across your blog on a search for "fabulous blogs"...now I know why you are considered fabulous! It looks like we have more in common than blogging!
