I have had that old sea shanty "Blow the Man Down" going through my head for the last couple of weeks. Over and over and over. Heaven knows where I picked it up, but it doesn't want to go away. I would gladly trade you for almost any of the other earworms mentioned on this thread. Well, except for the baby bumblebee song.

...Way, hey, blow the man down... :

Grrrrrr.....

Yeah, I think I had that one stuck in my head for about six months once.

I enjoy torturing DH with singing Pearl Jam's "Seasons don't fear the Beagle"....and then it sticks in my head. And then it sticks in my head.

Put your shoes on Lucy you're a big girl now". I've never heard it anywhere else then or since I always assumed he'd made it up but last week on BBC Radio4 Extra, which re-plays a lot of old radio programmes fro way back when, broadcast an episode of "Take It From Here" and the musical interlude was a group singing the Lucy song....

.......and I've been stuck with the damned thing ever since! But I only ever knew the line quoted above which makes it worse. I've looked up the rest of the words but the earworm is only letting me have the one line.

There are better songs to remind me of my Dad. He had a very good bass-baritone voice and sang a lot of the then popular songs around the house, such as "You Belong To Me" - which has the line "See the pyramids along the Nile, Watch the sunrise from a tropic isle" and which as a small girl I thought was "See the pyramids along the Nile, Watch the sunrise on a crocodile". Took dad ages to work out what Imeant when I kept saying "Sing the crocodile song, Daddy".
The Lucy song was known on this side of the pond also. A WWII ditty. And the crocodile song was sung by Jo Stafford with the Bob Crosby band. Popular during the 50's.
