I Like to Move It

Yes, the song by Reel 2 Real. I cringed typing that in. Okay, I know. It's not a great song. It couldn't be more silly. But it is a great song to work out to. It's one of my songs on my workout list on the iPod for the stationary bike.

Why am I telling you this? After volunteering in Fiona's class yesterday, I was helping Sophia get her coat and boots on. Fiona and her classmates were getting their backpacks, and snowpants, and boots on, and while they were doing this, several of them started singing "I LIKE TO MOVE IT, MOVE IT! I LIKE TO MOVE IT, MOVE IT! I LIKE TO MOOOOOVE IT!".

I died a little inside (Damn, I should listen to fucking Mozart when I work out!). They may not have gotten it from Fiona, but it wouldn't be the first time she's taught her friends a new song.

I'm in good company, though, because this makes me remember that her friend Ellie taught her "We Will Rock You" back in the preschool days. I thought it was so cool she would sing that in the car on the way home.

That's the song the LSG and her DI team did their skit with in fourth grade - they had to make a machine that moved a ball in all these complicated ways.

I like that song, LOL. The kids would sing it all the time too. But when Zach would sing it, it sounded like he was saying "I like to 'moon' it" :P !!

LOL, I love the variations!

Guess what! It's not my fault. They are learning a dance routine at school and they are using this song! It's just coincidence I started listening to the same song on my bike at about the same time.

Whew. Yeah, it is sort of haunting. Fiona keeps saying she can't get it out of her heeeeeeaddddddddd.
