What Luck When It Gets Stuck!

The cat was doing his thing and then heard some human sing. The stupid song then got stuck in the cat's head. Even when I tried to rest in bed. Such songs should be outlawed says the cat. Thankfully it wasn't The Brady Bunch or some other strat.

Mind on matter,
Avoiding the chatter.
Then it strikes.
A song with lots of likes.

One that all knows.
One that flows.
Remembrance is easy,
It is rather cheesy.

In your head while you rest.
In your head with zest.
In your head while you pee.
It won't leave your head be.

Hum it and pass it on.
Finally comes dawn.
It leaves your head.
So you get out of bed.

Then the passee hums it.
You repeat the fit.
One circle that never ends,
Driving all around bends.

Stuck there forever.
Unless you are clever.
Hum a new one.
Do it a ton.

Then the new one gets stuck.
Just keep passing the buck.
Until you end the loop.
Maybe watch Goof Troop?

Dated myself there?
Old cat at our lair?
Maybe just do a new rhyme?
Stuck in the head is such a crime.

Need some scrubbing done,
Pat's brain could use a ton.
Humming and making the cat mad.
That sure isn't rad.

Stuck in the head,
Stuck in the head in bed.
Stuck in the head until dead.
Oh the dread.

How do you get rid of ones that get stuck? Have any luck? Thankfully they usually go away. But some sure like to hit replay. There they will stay all through the day. At least I didn't hear it from a singing bass. That would have further annoyed my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  3. It is the song that never ends. Yes, it goes on and on, my friend! Some people started singing it not knowing what it was...and they'll continue singing it forever just because...

    lol I can see the curly-haired lady in my head. ::)

    I can also see the Brady Bunch intro. scene (aka Hollywood Squares) since you mentioned it. ;)

  5. Calliope may be a muse
    Play a song he can't refuse
    Whammo right between the eyes
    Songs filter in like butterflies
    Then they babble and they tease
    Try to shake them with a sneeze
    It's a hex don't waste your time
    Better to write another rhyme

    if it is a song you like then your are in luck
    if not well then, that would surely suck

    I heard Foreigner "Urgent" on the car radio last night
    and it is still playing in my head...
    urgent..urgent..emergency

  21. Jingles have been horrible that way
    "Ring Around The Collar" -Oi Vay!
    I try to sing another song
    but the lyrics come out all wrong.
    I realize they are from that other song
    which I can't escape which drives me nuts!

  27. Brain worms! How I hate those songs that get stuck in my head. They even torment my dreams! Sometimes it's a lyric or musical phrase that I can't place, and that's even worse. I know no way to get rid of them! Usually I try to focus on another song or play music loudly until I beat the bad song out of my head.
