My daughter took beginning flute this year at school. It took her about a month just to learn how to get sound out of the instrument! After that, she caught on pretty well. The first song she mastered was "Mary Had a Little Lamb" but it had some cha-cha-cha action in it! When I mentioned that the song sounded like Mary Had a Little Lamb, but not quite, she responded that the name of the song was "Mary's Little Cha Cha." That didn't sound quite right to me. It actually sounded a bit obscene. (okay, you know where my mind is). Sure enough, that was the official name of the song.
Am I the only one with a mind in the gutter or is this song title just wrong?
I can't help but imagine a group of employees putting the song book together. It took longer than they imagined, so they were spending a late evening at the office, coming up with the different song titles. One of them, hyped-up on coffee with a bad case of the giggles says, "I have a great title for this song!" The other coworkers are doubled over with laughter and decide to just go for it and slip it in!
For generations thereafter, music teachers and parents are forced to say, "Go play Mary's Little Cha Cha" without being allowed to even crack a slight smile without feeling incredibly dirty.
Curse those employees! Curses, I say!
