I can do anything better than you...

hey, don't take offense, I'm just quoting my favorite "Annie Get Your Gun" song... (whoa, two posts involving Annie in one week... weird...)

We went and saw that musical this afternoon and it was every bit as fun as I remember from 20+ years ago when I last saw it and some of the innuendo went flying WAY over my head. Gave me hope for all those little children whose parents had dragged them along to the show!

So now I can't sleep because I've got "there's no business like show business" and "You can't get a man with a gun" running around in my head.

But seriously... you GOTTA love the classic "I can do anything better than you"... it reminds me of the old days watching Sesame Street when they'd play that cute little "Everyone Makes Mistakes" song... and my sister and I would re-write the lyrics a tad bit...


"If you make a mistake while counting up to ten... well, you're a dork so go away and don't bug me again... Big people, small people, matter of fact ALL people, everyone makes mistakes except for meeeeee"

and yes, I do realize that the "me" didn't work when it was "us" singing it... so sue me, we made a mistake...

how ironic is it that this post had 3 typos when it was first published??? I think I've got 'em all now :)

(hanging my head in shame and vowing to never blog after 10 pm again...)

That song just reminds me of high school, when we sang it for a dinner theater performance. :)

And actually, I think someone YouTube'd a video of it.... hysterical!!!

Dang. I missed your typos.
I am fond of that musical too. Unfortunately, I really can't remember the last time I saw one live. Maybe in 15 years I can start doing cultural stuff again. Meanwhile, I'll just read your blog for showtunes.

I love plays... but I have a hard time watching plays in the HEAT... was it a Tuachan play? Anyway... I do love Annie Get Your Gun... one of my favorites!
