Silly songs

My Dad loved to sing silly songs. He had a thousand of them. He also told jokes, recited limericks and trilled ditties.

Here is MY song, the song Daddy sang to me my whole life:

She'll have rings on her fingers
And bells on her toes.
She'll have elephants to ride upon
My little Irish Rose.
So come to the nabbob
on next St. Patrick's Day.
Be Mrs. Umbo Jumbo,
Jingiboo Jay,
O' Shay.

I thought of you Daddy, on St. Paddy's day.

What wonderful memories you have of your Dad - they should bring you much comfort. My Dad had a great sense of humor, too, and was a great storyteller. I can remember sitting by him and listening to him tell about his boyhood adventures - what fun!! Love your Dad's song for you :o)
