Inspired in part by the intimation from the many people to whom I've tried to explain jingling - that we're all insane. Dedicated to our non-Little spouses, SOs, family or others who put up with this nonsense on a regular basis.

He yaks, you sing 'bout anything
he says, never asking why.
I hear all day 'bout podcast delays
where is my "American Pie"
Don't you ever say I'm the one insane.
I don't sing about food.
Now I'm humming lines 'bout some bald, orange guy.
in place of my favorite "Hey Jude."
Why do you have to wreck my songs?
I can't even recall them now
What happened to my Elton John?
All I ever hear is fake Fugees.
Who cares about his bocce ball?
Are you ever gonna give this up?
Don't need a song when his car has stalled.
Or 'bout some freak & flakka trees.
Who flak's a tree?
I never meant to start a war.
I just want to hear my songs again.
And instead of what size Junior wore,
I just want to hear KD again.
I never meant to start a war.
I just want to hear my songs again
not a misquoted Paul Simon.
Don't you ever say I'm the one insane
I think maybe that's you.

*A parody of "Wrecking Ball" by Miley Cyrus. My thanks to Jason for helping me with chords and more on this one! You are quite a talent, sir!

Such intricately entwined lyrics, such a super performance. Wow. Only thing is I'm not big on the original tune so you sing about wrecking originals, but you reeeeaaallly improved this one!

Thanks everybody! Anita, I don't think your husband is alone with that one (although I'm not exactly sure what pussed means:))! Jason- I've since seen that commercial and I had the same reaction. Definitely full circle!

What happened to my Elton John? I think everyone would like an answer to THAT. So very good.

I saw a car commercial yesterday, where at a car "funeral" there was a lady playing a piano instrumental version of this melody - and of course when it gets to the chorus my brain doesn't think of Wrecking Ball, but instead instantly starts singing along :"Why do you have to wreck my songs..." So yeah... full circle.

My wife smiles tolerantly; my in-laws, however... I love this, Kjerstin. Full points for beauty, extra points for freshness and originality.

Haha. My husband was pussed today because as he was watching Spieth come back today all he kept hearing was "Balding Jordan Spieth". Can't wait to see what else I can ruin for him. Great song KJ!
