Miranda’s Take on Boiled Peanuts

Booger Peas (to be sung to the tune of ‘Goober Peas’)

Sittin’ in the trailer on a summer’s day
Writin’ with my pencil, passin’ time away
Lying in my soft bed, caressed by the breeze
When I was subjected to eat booger peas

Peas, peas, peas, peas, eating booger peas
Oh, they’re so disgusting, eating booger peas


When a horse poops, the solders have a rule
To force one of their own to a task so cruel
But another routine, disgustinger than these
Is grossing out my tongue eating booger peas

Peas, peas, peas, peas, eating booger peas
Oh, they’re so disgusting, eating booger peas


Just before the journey, the father hears a row
He says, “The parade* is coming, I hear the engines now.”
He turns around in wonder, and what do you think he sees?
His daughter, Miranda, hurling booger peas

Peas, peas, peas, peas, eating booger peas
Oh, they’re so disgusting, eating booger peas


I think my song has lasted almost long enough
The subject’s interesting but rhymes are mighty rough
I wish this bag was empty and I could be so free
From ever eating another poisoned booger pea

Peas, peas, peas, peas, eating booger peas
Oh, they’re so disgusting, eating booger peas!


*we commonly refer to all the RV’s leaving in the morning as ‘the parade’.

    This settles it. You need to start your own blog separate from this one, call it Miranda’s Take, and give us your take on things. Miranda’s Take on Bald Monkeys. An just roll with it like you did here. That’d be hilarious.

    Joel - thanks… but having my own website is difficult to keep up with. I had one when I was younger, before we started traveling. Thanks for the encouragement, though.

    There will be no separating of blogs…;)

    You can see just Miranda’s posts by going to her bio page: http://boyinks4adventure.com/about/miranda/

    Or I could give her a new category here on the main blog. Someone was going to do this thing called “Fly to right” in that fashion..but it never flew at all.
