An old song came on the TV while we were eating supper. She starts singing along to the words: “Grab your coat and get your hat leave your worries on the…” I asked what she sang, so that I was clear about what I’d heard. Her reply left me giggling so much, I nearly choked.

Chloe left the TV on in the living room as we were sitting at the kitchen table eating supper. An ad came on and she’d gotten very good at copying singers, mimicking word for word. Tony Bennet is doing a voice over song and she’s heard it a couple of times. It’s the old song…”Grab your coat and get your hat, leave your worries”….
I don’t know how but…..She always manages to give me the giggles when I have a mouthful of food or drink so I nearly choke through laughing so much because…from nowhere she burst out singing:

“Grab your coat and get your hat… leave your worries on the ‘toaster’

OMGoodnessss…….. I nearly choked from laughing so much.

She asked. “What’s so funny???”

I was bright red in the face trying to chew my food enough so I could tell her, but couldn’t stop laughing.
Once I’d stopped enough to tell her that the real words are “Leave your worries on the doorstep, life can be so sweet on the sunny side of the street.”…. she came back as quick as a flash:

” Ohhhhhhh….I thought he was singing leave your worries on the toaster.  Oh well, I like my version better ….and carried on leaving her worries on the toaster again….” LOL  That meal was hysterical.

I’ve always called these: ‘Chloe gems’

  3. Sounds like fun at mealtimes..but a little hazardous for choking possibilities. I like that you have so much fun together…very sweet.

    I remember singing along with something by Gwen Stefani one time while riding in the car with my two adult daughters and they started laughing at me because I wasn’t sure of the lyrics…they love laughing at me! Hmph! They set me straight on what I was getting wrong but said my version wasn’t so bad…after they snickered at me first.

  4. haha i like her version too…i love listening to my boys try to sing songs on the radio their renditions are always hilarious…
