Did you ever wake up with a song in your head? Not the last song you heard before you fell asleep or the jingle that woke you up on the radio. A song from your past that crept in under the cover of night and stayed there, waiting for you to wake up and notice it. A song that makes you grin in a strange sort of “why in the world did I think about that” kind of way, as you hop in the shower or tie your shoes and there it is, following you around your farmers market or the hardware store, humming around your head like a bee.
“Little Lulu, Little Lulu, with freckles on your chin,
Always in and out of trouble, but mostly always in.
Using Daddy’s necktie for the tail on your kite,
Using Mommy’s lipstick for the letters you write.”
Do any of you remember Lulu? Tubby? Iggy?
