For months now, maybe even a year, Gavriel Zev has had a little ditty he half-sings that makes Naomi Rivka absolutely crack up. He dweedles, in his little dweedly voice: “blue, blue, blue… also night!”
Over and over and over, he sings those three words (“blue” is repeated; it’s still only one word).
You have to remember, he was just teeny tiny when he started this. So I figured it was just nonsense; words strung together. So Naomi giggles and encourages him, over and over and over.
Today, I overheard him singing it, and suddenly the words resolved, about half the time, and I realized what he’s been singing: “here we go looby loo, here we go looby light; here we go looby loo, all on a Saturday night.”
It’s the song our dance teacher, Theresa uses to start every single dance class. And I thought, oh, how amazing. There has been a brain in there, all along.
