When morning light begins
And says goodnight to moon

I try to escape what’s in
The house, this awful tune

A song that lingers on and on
It’s one not easy to forget

Sounding more like a drone
And eventually, one, I regret

To hear it again, I don’t wanna
It’s enough to make me dread

Kind of reminds me of Manamana
Now try getting it out of your head

Still my daughter sings to me
This song she learned so well

And all it ever brings to me
Is a headache, and a dizzy spell


Author’s Note: For those of us with children, this song was a staple in the house for years. The Elephant Show and its theme song was always being sung. Just minutes ago, I told my daughter the prompt, and yes, you guessed it, she started singing it. She’s 29… lol  Never heard it?  Listen HERE – Good luck getting it out of your head.
