Song of the Day

Not surprisingly, the Song of the Day posts have been skewing a little 80s since I started this blog, so I decided this morning to play with the ubiquitous One Direction song that is unavoidable on pop radio these days. I can't bring myself to link to it (ask your daughter if you don't know what I'm talking about, or your granddaughter if you're among my many older followers) and I couldn't come up with anything to rival the lyrical complexity and grammatical daring of "The way that you flip your hair gets me overwhelmed," but nevertheless, I'm pleased, and it was awfully fun to sing this morning:

Everyone else in your family knows it.
Everyone else but you.
Girl you are still fast asleep in your cozy bed.
You are such an inveterate sleepy head.
I know it's hard to believe, and it sounds so cruel:
You don't know (oh oh)
You don't know it's time for school.
I'm afraid it's time for school.


  1. At the roller-skating rink the other day, a group of girls who looked about 12 years old started singing along (loudly) when the DJ played the One Direction song. My group of 10 year olds were not quite as familiar with it.

  2. P.S. Great meter, but I think I have to take off some points for accuracy. Evie is anything but an "inveterate sleepy head."
