Commandment Number Seven

My kids love the music of the Go Fish Guys. Actually, so do I. They have a terrific song about moms called The Mom Song. They also have a song called The Ten Commandment Boogie.

Now, my kids love to sing, period. Like most kids. But they really love to sing some songs more than others, and one of them is The Ten Commandment Boogie. It's a cute song. However, there's one problem and it happens to be commandment number seven.

1st Commandment: Thou shalt have no other gods before me
Song Lyric: Number One: No other God but the One is true

2nd Commandment: Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image
Song Lyric: Don't worship any other, that's commandment two

3rd Commandment: Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain
Song Lyric: Number Three: Use the name of God only with respect

4th Commandment: Remember the sabbath day to keep it holy
Song Lyric: Number Four: On Sunday take a rest

5th Commandment: Honor thy father and thy mother
Song Lyric: We're half way through with one that's just for you - Listen to your mom and dad 'cause what they say you gotta do

6th Commandment: Thou shalt not kill
Song Lyric: Number Six: Don't ever take somebody's life

Can you guess what the 7th commandment is? Yep, it's the thou shalt not commit adultery one. And the song lyric?

Seven feels like heaven, but only with your husband or wife

Do you know how many times my kids pick that line to sing? They will miss the other commandments but sing commandment number seven. They have no idea what they are singing, but I'm honestly afraid they are either going to ask (at least Hannah, anyway), or BELT IT OUT IN PUBLIC!

Even if I ban the song forever, they'll still sing it from memory.

Oh the dilemmas of parenthood.

Oh, I am sure Mrs. Wizzle can relate to your dilema, isn't that right? WHEN and I mean WHEN, it happens in the middle of Safeway or the lineup at Walmart, ask for advice from Mrs Wizzle. She knows exaxtly what to do! Marcus was only three years old when your day arrived! So you can compare stories and exchange embarassments together! Jenn and I both howled!!! This was a gooder.

Yes, I remember some of Mrs. (& Mr., huh!) Wizzle's stories and I'm sure she can relate.

Yes...it's only just beginning I know.

It's all downhill from here.
