la Ketch on the Run


I'm sorry but i'm still obsessed with Pippi. I just can't wait to watch those damned dvd's. Two things I keep thinking about that i can't wait to see again are both from "Pippi on the Run". The first is a song that Pippi, Tommy and Anika sing when they are riding on Old Man (the horse).

It goes:
Wake up you lazy bones
you've got some work to do
But the lazy bones says not today
tomorrow I'll work for you
tra la la la la la
I'll work so hard tomorrow
tra la la la la la
That's why I'm resting up today
The other part I can't wait to see is when this farmer lets them stay in his barn overnight. Pippi, Tommy and Anika are hanging out up in the hay loft with the farmer's kids at night talking about swear words. Anika says, "I know one but I have to whisper it." so Pippi has her whisper it in her ear. She whispers, "Heck". Then Pippi says, "Oh that's nothing. I know a much worse swear than that." Of course she does, her dad is a pirate. So she flings open the barn windows and screams out at the top of her lungs, "SHUT YOUR GOD DAMNED COTTON PICKIN MOUTH!" The farmer happens to be sitting under the window smoking his pipe and he hears it of course. Then he does this double take like, "What the....?!" And all the kids are dying laughing. They can't believe she said it.

I was dusting the office yesterday (to impress my christmas guests) and i ran across three books by Astrid Lindgren, Pippi, Pippi Goes Aboard and Karlson On The Roof. I think Debbie gave them to you and Penny. They will be great to read to Taj and Kiah. How special to pass down favorite memories. Can't wait

Pippi on the Run Lazy Bones Song

Wake up you lazy bones
There’s a lot of work to do
But the lazy bones says not today
Tomorrow I’ll work for you

Wake up you lazy bones
You have work to do today
But the lazy bones says not today
Today I’m going out to play

Tra la la la la la
How hard I'll work tomorrow
Tra la la la la la
That's why I'm resting up today

Wake up you lazy bones
For you rested yesterday
And the things you said you’d do tomorrow
You must do today

Tra la la la la la
I’ll do them all tomorrow
Tra la la la la la
That's why I'm resting up today

Wake up you lazy bones
Use your fingers and your thumbs
Don’t you put it off for another day
For tomorrow never come
