peaceful warrior and a funny question....

because the soccer debacle didn't quite deter me enough to keep bram out of all organized sports and activities that he would have to come in contact with people other than immediate family and friends that love him unconditionally, bram had his first karate lesson yesterday.

this was just up his ally. and mine. and whoever may be in contact or try to teach my son in the next several years.

holy moly, his instructor does. not. play. he is super cool and super funny and terrific with the kids. but coach adams commands respect, self control, and manners. "yes, sir!" is always required. at some point during class, all the little dragons have to walk to the parents in the peanut gallery, make eye contact, shake their hands, and introduce themselves.

bram got a little silly and was quickly reminded that it wasn't a time to be silly.

then coach adams talked to them about self control and made the little dragons stand facing the parents, and they all had to stand perfectly still without smiling or laughing for one minute.

and bram did it perfectly. of course, i had to turn around a few times because i was laughing but he did it! he did it!

at the end of class they played a fun round of dodge ball then got their "homework" assignment which was 15 minutes of clean up as soon as they got home.

needless to say, the playroom was spotless by the time shepherd's pie, corn and garlic bread were sitting on the table.

can i get a, "hell to the mo'fo' yeah!"

he will now be going every monday and wednesday.

can i get a, "hell to the mo'fo' yeah!"

on an entirely different subject, i always thought the eric clapton song, "lay down sally" said, "way down south" until a few years ago. i still sing it wrong even though i know the correct words. i also thought inxs' song, "supersonic blond" said, "super salad bar." i still sing it that way.

my question to you is, what song did you have the lyrics wrong forever and still sing incorrectly to this day even though you know the correct words.

this will make me laugh for hours, promise.

Ok, 1st, I think it's AWESOME Bram is in karate. A little man like that with all his energy and aggression, I think it's perfect!!!!!!!!! I hope someday Tristan is interested.

As for the songs, there are SO many I do that with but of course I don't remember now that you're asking. BUT in that new Taylor Swift song I sing "she wears short skirts, I wear speedos" instead T-shirts. DON'T KNOW WHY.

From Kid Rock's Summertime in Michigan Chatty says "Drinking whiskey from the bottom" instead of bottle. I haven't bothered tp correct her since it really isn't appropriate for her to be singing about whiskey anyway ... oh well another parent of the year award I will miss out on.

Way to go karate!

My friend...I promise my friend thought Smack my Bitch Up was Snap my Picture.

Push it by Salt N Pepper...or Pepa...whatev...thought it was Oh Shit...

Battlefield by Jordin Sparks?
"Ya better go and getchya armor."

I thought it was:

"Ya better go getchya mamma."

Still do it. Still works for me.

Tony about had a heart attack when that Push It song came on and I sang, "Ahhh smoosh it"

He was all, "Do you really think someone would call a song Smoosh It?"

And I was all, "Sorry I'm not old."

Smoosh it real good!

coonor goes to his first tiny tigers tonight, so maybe i will have a similar story. it would be great if he got a clean up homework assignment!!

i always get songs wrong and sing it with pride.

Good for Bram!!

Oh my gosh...I'm famous for singing the wrong words to songs. Don't even know where to start.

Loveshack - at the end of the song, they say: TIN ROOF..blah-blah-blah. I always thought they said: HEN-RY! Like she was yelling at her husband. Don't ask me why.

Widespread Panic song - Rain for L.A. - I always thought it said: We Made Rain for Elaine. Trey makes fun of me to this day about that one.

Thank you for your sweet comment, too. :)

Oh WOW! I want to send the girls to this class... I need some of that clean time... and I so would have laughed during that one minute! Way to go B!

Ok, so "Pour Some Sugar on Me" there is a part where they say "ONE LUMP OR TWO"... I had no idea until last year that was what they said, and who knows what I sang before, I am alawsy screwing up songs!

Donatelli98 said...

You mean in Loveshack it isn't HEN-RY at the end? I am still singing it wrong!

Carrie Darney said...

OK, so recently Hagen and I love Boom Boom Pow. I taught him "The Chicken is jackin my style."

Ryan (of all people) busted out laughing saying it is "This chick is jackin my style". It isn't even a song he would like!

There are SO many more...have to think...

Karate...great idea...Hagen is good at picking up at Grandma's house, but not ours. He will if we ask sometimes, but not consistant!

Van Morrison - Brown Eyed Girl
According to me the first words are:
"Hey there amigo..."

greygillfish said...

I am seriously laughing out loud still from hearing the correct words to Love Shack. I thought it was Henry too. DAMN! Who would have thought Tin Roof??? I am officially changing the last party to Hen-RY!

Sara and Trey said...

I am sooo glad that I'm not the only one who thought it was HEN-RY! And I didn't even include the best part of my wrong lyrics - I also thought it said: Hen-ry....BUSTED!

Well, to enlighten you all....it says: TIN ROOF - RUSTED!

hahahaha. You can check out the lyrics here:
