two little circles

Some time ago first grader Lola went off by herself to the study and emerged quite some time later, after composing an ode to buttocks.
(chorus) Two little circles may seem like nothing
but they are everything
they are everything
they are everything
oh yeah

(first verse)Butts always start just like little grapes
Just like grapes
just like GRAPES.
(repeat chorus)

(second verse) Now the buttcrack is made by METEOR
that's right
in your mommy's tummy
(repeat chorus)

(third verse) From humans to whales
All of God's creatures
they have this:
this one little thing:
(repeat chorus)

Now I've told you
you need to know
So there you go!
Lola sang this so sweetly, in a folk style, and we were all charmed. The Sober Husband and I went about the house singing, "Two little circles..." from time to time.

I asked Lola to record the song for the blog, and of course, the act of recording caused a very different outcome. Lola chose a more dramatic, pop styling and a rather questionable prop. Enjoy!

well the dance party was a fitting and climactic ending. i can see the lady ga ga influence has taken hold!

I more cynically see the influence of the dreaded "iCarly", where the characters break out into "random dance" at various times.

When I was her age, I wasn't talented enough to write my own original songs about the human body. I was too busy plotting my sister's untimely demise. I see now what a waste my childhood years were. *sigh*

Anywho... *APPLAUSE*
