This is a song written by my six-year-old nephew Jonas, and my three-year-old niece, Adeline. You can probably tell which kid wrote which verse. There are abrupt thematic shifts in the song:


Motorcycle man speedin through the town,
goin on his motorcycle today.
Down, down, down!

Butterfly goes to school
He writes words and then he runs,
He flies to space!

In Eyeball Creek there is butterflies.
The eyeballs are nice.
The eyeballs are niiiice.

Wandy Princess goes to the princess castle,
and then she rides to home,
and then she lays in her bed every time.

The sharks rock like crazy (3x)

Once upon a time a butterfly flew,
he went up the elevator,
and then he flyed out to the Hotel Stinky.



  1. Sounds like she's ready to rock...
