Lyrically challenged and selective hearing.

Yesterday Hubba began to sing the healing incantation song from Tangled. As usual, Shaily tried to harmonize then began singing the second verse.

Eugene has been hurt ..
It's not Eugene.
Yes it is. Eugene has been hurt.
It's not Eugene.
It's HEAL what has been hurt.
No. It's Eugene. Eugene has been hurt, save the fat design.
That doesn't even make sense. It's Heal what has been hurt, change the fates design.

Google told us what it was and she was wrong.

While I'm at it .. a few other lyrical errors with the family.

Oriwa on Open Arms by Journey/Mariah.
"Softly you whisper, your saucy sin"
Actual lyric:
Softly you whisper, you're so sincere.

My Sister on You Sexy Thing by Hot Chocolate.
"I've been eating wrinkles"
Actual lyric:
I believe in miracles.

Mum on Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen
"I heard there was a secret sword and Davy prayed to please the board"
Actual lyrics:
I heard there was a secret chord, that David played and it pleased the Lord.

Hubba on the National Anthem
"God of Nations stinky feet .. "
Actual lyric:
God of Nations at thy feet.


Me said…
I knew all those, I win! Even the NZ national anthem. :)

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
