Had That Song In My Head in All Day....

It is so late and I was just about to go to bed, but there has been a meltdown in the Fidler home and I just had to share it. Anyone who has ever worked a Vacation Bible School can appreciate this.

I opened the door to the hallway and Sarah was sobbing. I panicked. Was she sick? Did she fall off of the bed? Through her tears she said "I can't sleep." I figured she was going to tell me that her nose was stuffed up. She said (still sobbing) "I can't get that song out of my head."

"What song?" I ask. She tearfully replied, "That song we sang at Vacation Bible School."

Oh dear. I managed to get her back in bed without bursting out in hysterical laughter. If you haven't ever been to a VBS you may not get this, but if you have you know that it is hard to get those catchy songs out of your head!

This makes me think of when we first got the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie and Eli learned the song "Bad Day". Well, he learned part of it. He would repeat "Had a bad day, had a bad day, had a bad day, ....." to infinity and beyond. He would usually convince me that I had, in fact, had a bad day!

Speaking of Alvin and the Chipmunks and Vacation Bible School (welcome to my life :) tonight during prayer requests we went around the room while the kids asked for prayer for sick cousins and safe travel. Eli had his hand up the whole time. I finally got to him and he asked "Remember on Alvin and the Chipmunks when they found those cheeseball?" LOL. Only my child....

I know that at some point we've all had a song we just cannot get out of our heads. So...I wanna know. What song has kept you up at night???

LOL!! Well, now it will be "Had a Bad Day." (and that is the only part of it I know too!) :)
To answer your question, there are too many to list, but for the record I still occasionally sing "Far Out, Far East, Rickshaw Rally - Racin' to the'll be so fuuuuunnnnnn...(clap hands)...racin' to the Son!" (how long ago was that?!)
Don't tell Sarah, but I'm afraid once VBS songs are burned into your brain, they never go away.

This happens to me all the time and why is it normally the songs I'm not so crazy about. The other day it was "Teardrops on my Guitar" which is the worst, but also not the best to sing all day!!

Lately, mine has been a VBS song too. "This Little Light of Mine" was one of our songs this year, but with an upbeat bayou twist!! So I sing it and then during the clapping, Jack says "Clappin on the back" Very funny but I'm tired of it now too!

Interesting blog as for me. It would be great to read something more concerning this matter. Thanx for giving that material.
