The Theme to the “Muddy Mudskipper Show” from Ren & Stimpy.
Who’s the greatest mudskipper of them all?
Who can skip thru the mud with the greatest of ease?
What kind of wonderful guy?
Who can crawl like a dog without scraping his knees?
Who’s got seg-ment-ed eyes?
It’s Muddy Mud-Skipper!
It’s the Muddy!
Mm-ud Ski-pper show!!
So far, his favourite songs are “The Philosopher’s Song“, “Galumph Went the Little Green Frog”, and “Happy Together”. Happy Together was the song that Mark sang to me as I walked up the steps of the Rotunda at Observatory Hill to get married, so it’s special to both of us. The Philosopher’s Song has always been a great favourite of mine. It may not be orthodox to introduce the kid to a drinking song at such a tender age, but it should do wonders for his curiosity about the history of philosophy when he is of an age.
And we’ve been able to calm him when he is having a fit of pique since he was about six weeks old by singing a rousing chorus or two, so I think a little philosophy won’t do any harm.
