Beanie Banana

“Dad, Can we hear ‘Beanie Banana’?” asked Captain Chaos. She pronounced “banana” as“bahnahnah,” the only word she can say and sound British at the same time.

We were climbing in the car last night to drive to karate class, where I took great pleasure in kicking the snot out of a big red bag. Big red bags beware, you don’t want to mess with me.

What is Beanie Banana?” I asked in reply.

“You know, Beanie Banana!”

Because in the land of short people, the act of repeating what you just said is enough information to answer any question. “Of course! What was I thinking? Beanie Banana!” That is the answer they are expecting.

She started singing. “Beanie Banana…Beanie Banana…”

When you only know two imaginary words to the song you are looking for, it’s difficult to sing.

Luckily for the Captain, Dad knew what she was looking for.

“Lady Madonna,” by the Beatles. At least she has good taste.

I was hoping that the video was of the Captain singing "Beanie Bahnahnah".
