It was the refrain that nearly made me fall onto the floor: "Don't know what to say the monkey won't do."
You see, when my son was two or three he said he'd written a song called "Don't Know What to Say What the Monkeys Won't Do." I was amazed.
Just the title alone filled me with wonder. I compared him to Captain Beefheart. But obvously, after hearing Harriet's song on the radio that my son had heard it as a toddler. It's not the type of music his mother would be listening to, so I still was amazed.
But this morning when I played a clip of the song I found on the Internet, my son, now 15, remembered he'd seen it on the cartoon show Animaniacs. Sure enough, we found it on YouTube.
