With a 4-year-old David Bowie as the drum major, I'll happily fall in line...
that is exactly what a 4 year old thinks, says & does
@thisismymistake It's exquisite. Even my old Dad loves this. Which is very wierd.
@hsmagnet. I remember being 4 vividly, too. You're absolutely right. The line about eating a butterfly was not something I did, however.
i remember eating some kind of moth, i think it was. because the powder on its wings reminded me of powdered sugar....it wasn't!
yes it was! and no i didn't torture it!
@hsmagnet I remember stealing some raw bacon and Sweetex from the kitchen counter, eating them behind the settee and then being violently sick. My dad wasn't best pleased with me. Around the same age - five - I necked an entire bottle of Haliborange (kiddies' vitamin C). Mum called an ambulance. The hospital weren't best pleased with her.
@AlicejustMay @hsmagnet I woke up one morning very thirsty and went downstairs to get a drink. Couldn't find any squash, just this mysterious brown bottle. Poured a huge glass and guzzled it.Wanted to go back to bed and couldn't understand why I kept falling down the stairs. My dad hearing the thumping noises came to investigate and found one smashed four year old saying "Daddy I think I'm going to die." #truestory.
@AlicejustMay Explains your love of Can's Vitamin C!
@hsmagnet I knew. Bunny's don't do torture.
@MsSue_ I never made the connection before!
@MsSue_ Smashed aged four... what I find astonishing is you had a concept of death so early! I just remember being very poorly with chickenpox and thinking that if I concentrated enough I could turn into our dog instead.
@AlicejustMay Ha ha. Brilliant. Is that because your dog didn't get in trouble as much as you did?
@MsSue_ Probably. He just sat around and ate biscuits.
@AlicejustMay Your dog and I have a lot in common :)
Ha! I was very fond of him.
Really good song. A bit of Bowie's past I was unfamiliar with. Thanks for jamming.
When I'm five, i'll nick pound coins out of my mummy's purse!
i quite enjoy these group therapy sessions
great song.. love the photo's of little Davey...I don't remember any classic at 4 or 5 myself, but my daughter did walk out and informed my poor unprepared Mom, that Daddy sticks his penis in Mommy's vagina for babies...My Mum dropped her favorite tea cup, and I got quite an angry call at work from her.
btw, I was pregnant at the time with an inquisitive 5 year old, both hubby and I are nurses, so we laid it out medically for her with appropriate terms..I still hear about it from my Mum at times.
@KParkBro @rocknrollisking Glad you enjoyed this.
@HaveACuppaTea Naughty! :)
@christineb Poor grandma having to deal with that unexpected announcement! Not surprising she's not forgotten it! :)
What a song writer...this is great
