The skunk song

OK so my son and I are a lil goofy.

And, because he has autism, sometimes he really likes to go on and on about the same thing.

Depending on what it is, sometimes I go with it, sometimes I redirect and sometimes I just like to distract him.

The dead skunk song happened because he had seen a dead skunk and then he wouldn't stop talking about it.

So I thought the best thing to do was to make a song about it.

But this was a bit ago so I can only treat you to the part I remember... (to be sung to the tune of "If you're happy and you know it")

"Oh poor, squished, stinky, sticky skunk. You create a very nasty funk. You didn't look before you crossed and now you're very very mussed. Icky, sticky, smelly, yucky, smushy skunk."

We've also used "There's a skunk in the road, dear Son, dear Son - a squished skunk in the road, dear Son a squished skunk."

A lot of the stuff I make up with the kids is set to the tune of songs I already know.

The it's bath time - get in there or else song is set to the tune of The Phantom of the Opera and is kind of ridiculous.

We also have songs about farts, washing hands and not touching the computer without permission.

Sometimes the songs get re-used but often I just sing whatever comes into my strange little brain.

  1. I have all kinds of silly songs I sing to and about my kids. Mostly they hate it but I don't care. :)
