  1. Haha! Great! Wouldn’t happen to me, either. I’m always responding to perfectly innocuous comments with random musical and opera phrases. Whether or not they are well known, which causes many looks askance, not that it stops me, I think the one that happens most regularly is when I’m at someone’s house for dinner or something, and as I’m getting ready to leave, I blurt out:

    “This was a real nice clambake, we’re mighty glad we came!
    The vittles we et were good, you bet, the company was the same!
    Our hearts are warm, our bellies are full, and we are feelin’ prime.
    This was a real nice clambake, and we all had a real nice time!”

    Never had anybody sing a line back to me on that one, either.

  2. HAHAHAHA! Okay fine, I’ll be honest, I would not be able to sing a line back at you as “words wouldn’t come in an easy way – ’round in circles I’d go, longing to tell you…” as I’m trying to remember it. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    But can a gal at least get a couple of points for immediately recognizing it from the musical “Carousel” ?

    • Of course, because I DO love you, “if” doesn’t figure in! 😉
      But really, I don’t do it for points, it’s just… part of my vocabulary. One of the best things ever, though, is when something like that pops out, and somebody else joins in! Talk about glee!

      • Hey, you’re talking to the woman that had strangers on a subway singing “Love Shack” . I fully understand that glee!

  3. Great idea! I’d settle for “Put on your top hat, white feather and tails” from Stan Freberg modestly presents “The United States of America”.

  4. i dunno. I keep coming back to the idea of belting out songs from Avenue Q – “Everyone’s a little bit racist”, “I wish you could meet my girlfriend”, “I’m not wearing underwear”, “The Internet is for porn”, and “You can be as loud as the hell you want”. That would get the law repealed pretty darn fast….

So? What do you think?
