Fred's song

Brown girl in the bread tra la la la la
Brown girl in the bread tra la la la la
Brown girl in the bread tra la la la la
She looks like a plum plum plum

I think it sounds a bit Tori Amos myself.

    Have you heard the Dan Zanes 'Rocketship Beach' version of this chestnut? If the thought of Boney M ad infinitum scares you, you should definitely check out Dan. The thinking parents' sing-a-long.

    Thought this version is pretty cute, I have to admit. (Mike)

  3. I have come across Dan Zane before but I didn't know he did this song (actually i ddin't even know it was a real song, though it did sound vaguely familiar when Fred was singing it). Thanks - I might ahve to get the album.

  4. It's Brown Girl in the Ring (Wiggles do it!).
    Anything with Plum in it sounds good to me.

    (the proper line is .. and she looks like a sugar and a plum, plum plum!!).

    Haha. When I was little I thought it was brown girl in the rain .
    This reminded me to go take a look at the Archive of Misheard Lyrics. I don't know why the url is kissthisguy.com though. Maybe another 'mishearance'?

  6. I used to think in La isla bonita Madonna sang 'Young girls with eyes like potatoes' which you know, does make a kind of sense.

    Kiss this guy is from the Jimi Hendrix song but the misheardness is actually controversial

  8. lol.. we get strange made up hip hop stuff ( lots of yo's and yeah's) which is really odd cause we don't listen to it (Yeerrk)nor do we listen to the radio (because they play it). Bizzare. It's like living with a mini Eminem (white,blonde etc not sound, I wouldn't even reconise an song by him if I heard it..lol..)
