Go, go, go Joseph

31 08 2014

 

I am from a very musical family. So perhaps it was inevitable that naming my son after a musical would result in some spontaneous outbursts of song when my whole family came to visit shortly after Joseph’s birth.

However my sister went one step further. A week after my family had returned to Northern Ireland I received a parcel in the post. It contained the baby-grow pictured above and a card with the following rewrite of the famous Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice collaboration.

 

Go, go, go Joseph, you know what they say.

Come on wee Joseph, stop eating ALL day,

Sha-la-la Joseph, Mummy is tired,

And Daddy is knackered, more night sleep is required:

 

Go, go, go Joseph you know what we say.

Our baby Joseph grows bigger each day.

Sha-la-la Joseph you’re doing fine.

And with your new dream-grow you’ll be ahead of your time.

 

Go, go, go Joe!

My family are nuts – my poor boy hasn’t a chance 😉
