ACT ONE: The gift
Naomi Rivka: It’s my birthday! What’s this? A brand-new, yellow ukulele??? Why, it’s lovely! I will hold it, cradle it like a baby, cuddle it with the head end up!
Plink, plink, plink.
Gavriel Zev: No!!! I must have this ukelele all for myself!
ACT TWO: The inspiration
Gavriel Zev: Hmm… so that’s how it’s done.
ACT THREE: The mad genius at work/play
Gavriel Zev: See??? I’m a natural! Strum, strum, strum! “Did you ever see a bee, singing as well as me?” down by the BAY!!!! [if anybody reading this remembers what his verse ACTUALLY said, please let me know!!]
Naomi Rivka: Oh, well… I guess I’ll survive.
This is the very last Naomi birthday related post for this year, I promise!!!
I don't think there's a "supposed to" with the bee... :) We used to sing, "with a band-aid on his knee." :)ReplyDelete
No, no... the rest of our verses were just plain dumb, with real words that rhymed. His was simply a brilliant nonsense verse - that also brilliantly rhymed. I just forget what it was - darn!!!ReplyDelete
You also have to understand how noisy and obnoxious my entire family is to know how extraordinary it would be that a 3-year-old would contribute at ALL!!!
