I’m a Nut
This nutty song was one of my big sister’s favorites when we were kids. Now my own kids love it, and start singing it out of the blue at the most unexpected times. (Like when we’re in the car and I happen to say something they think is just totally absurd. I guess they think they’re being funny…)
Thanks to reader Amanda for reminding me of verse #3 (which then reminded me of #4). I hadn’t heard that one in years!
I’m an acorn, small and round
Lying on the cold, hard ground
People come and step on me
That’s why I’m so cracked, you see
I’m a nut, I’m a nut
I’m a nut in a rut, amen!
I’m so nutty, I don’t know
Why the squirrels love me so
I’m descended from an oak
Nuts to you, and that’s no joke
Called myself on the telephone
Just to see if I was home
Asked myself out on a date
Picked me up at half past eight
Took myself to a show
Sat myself on the very last row
Put my arms around my waist
Got so fresh I slapped my face
