      We’ve begun singing it to each other and subbing in our names for the F word.

  1. Awesome song and still a huge Offspring fan here!

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      This one can really get you going, you know?

      1. I agree whole heartedly!! 😉

  2. Kim says:

    Joyce always has some fun musical challenges!!!

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      Couldn’t resist this one, Kim.

    Oh my gosh I remember when Bridget say a few words from the Grease soundtrack. My child who barely had 10 clear words sang, clear as a bell, HOOKER. (Frankie Vallie Beauty School Dropout”.

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      Just think, that’s the kind of stuff we grew up on, Kerri!

  4. NotAPunkRocker says:

    Just any song? Hmmm. This could be interesting…

    I do love this song!

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      I do too – and effer can be a term of endearment, you know. I picked it because it was on my mind, because of the kids, and it happens to be less than 3 minutes!

  5. tamaralikecamera says:

    What an awesome challenge. Now what would I pick…?? What do you think?

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      What stinks is that both songs I know you’d pick are both more than 3 minutes long.

  6. Rorybore says:

    Ha – still a great song tho.
    Mine are currently singing Don’t Go Breaking My Heart by Elton John.
    that one is probably on me. 🙂

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      You could do worse … but maybe just to balance things, teach them some Styx too?

  7. Catchy new-to-me tune! I like your alternative to the F-word. There are a lot of good songs out there that are spoiled by inappropriate language, which the best I can tell does not add any value to the music. I have yet to take the Brevity test. I’m going to have to do a stand-alone post just for this challenge. Thanks for playing along and rocking with the 4M crew, Eli! Have a tunetastic week.

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      With all the classy stuff on this linkup, I think mine was the only song I’ve seen that had the F-word! So many songs they play on the popular stations in town have some pretty awful storylines, if not lyrics.

      This was a blast! Since I posted this, I’ve thought of probably 13 more I could have gone with, and maybe 17 different sentences.

  8. kismaslife says:

    Haha, great song! I had forgotten about The Offspring!

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      Not kid-friendly, but so catchy. I think they do that by design.

  9. Joyce says:

    I’d never heard this before but the kids know it.

    1. Eli Pacheco says:

      Luckily, my kids usually sub out the F word.

      Around me, anyway.
