the big dig

Paleontologists.

Has there ever been a profession more well suited for child-level pop tunes?

Simon will be 5 on the 30th. Apparently, I now must make a cd for every party for the goodie bags. Birthday number 5 is a "paleontologist party". I'm thikning dinosaur songs and poems. That brings me up to 2 and the poem, Shel Silverstein's "if I had a brontosaurus" is only 10 seconds long.

"If I has a brontosaurs, I would name him boris or morris. If one day he had a lot of little brontosauri, I would change his name to Lori".

Seriously, if I have to listen to a disk of cloying kids tunes about Barney every day in the car, I will go insane.

Please help.

Barney is NOT, I repeat, NOT a dinosaur.

Granted, Barney is some kind of toxic-waste mutated thingy.

Ally Oop is a great idea.

Did Johnny cash really have a song about dinosaurs? Blimey!
