The wheels on the bus

Gage loves to sing and listen to music. His favorite song right now is "The wheels on the bus". Tuesday morning he was singing this song to me. This is how it went-

Gage-"The wheels on bus go round and round, round and round (sang louder with each round), round and round, the wheels on the bus go round and round all through the town. The chicken on the bus says excuse me please, ....

The dragon on the bus says welcome friend, ....

I was a bit confused. I didn't know chickens rode on the bus. But Gage was very sure it was the chicken on the bus that said excuse me please. (singing in his cute little voice!)

So I called a friend of mine that teaches singing time in nursery and asked her, and she had no idea where the chicken came into the song. Then I remembered that Gage has this Clifford music Cd that grandma and grandpa gave him for Christmas that he listens to each night before bed. So I got that out and we started listening to it. He was so excited and sang right along. Then it got to the children on the bus say excuse me please, and the driver on the bus says welcome friend. I understood. No matter how many times I try to nicely correct him, he says no! it is the chicken and the dragon.

He is a definite joy in my life!!
