    Truth in an Old Folk Song

    Every Wednesday, I meet a friend at the public library for toddler story time, to borrow books/music, and to just hang out.

    This week I found a cool CD...Animal Folk Songs for Children

    I especially like this song...

    Mister Rabbit, Mister Rabbit your ears are mighty long
    Yes, my Lord, they were put on wrong
    Every little soul must shine, shine, shine
    Every little soul must shine, shine, shine

    Mister Rabbit, Mister Rabbit your coat is mighty grey
    Yes, my Lord, it was made that way
    Every little soul must shine, shine, shine
    Every little soul must shine, shine, shine


    Mister Rabbit, Mister Rabbit your feet are mighty red
    Yes, my Lord, I'm almost dead
    Every little soul must shine, shine, shine
    Every little soul must shine, shine, shine


    Mister Rabbit, Mister Rabbit your eyes are mighty white
    Yes, my Lord, I'm runnin' out of sight
    Every little soul must shine, shine, shine
    Every little soul must shine, shine, shine

    Mister Rabbit, Mister Rabbit you're lookin' mighty thin
    Yes, my Lord, been a-cuttin' through the wind
    Every little soul must shine, shine, shine
    Every little soul must shine, shine, shine


    It has an earthy, rustic flavor like most folk songs. It always seems strange that today's culture tries so hard to shelter itself from death. I can't picture Raffi strumming along, singing about an old hare who is about to kick the bucket. Well, maybe he would but, there is something so real and matter-of-fact about Mister Rabbit. He's pretty much saying "Yep, I'm gonner die sonny boy and so will you - so git ter shinin'!"

    Although death isn't natural, I don't think we should ignore it or dress it up to be something it's not or search for eternal youth through surgeries, pills, machines, etc. (Blah, Blah, Blah). Death is so crucial to Life! Afterall, Christ conquered death by death.

    Thanks for the reminder, Mister Rabbit.

    Joke of the Day

    Q: "What is this?"
    A: "A Roman soldier in a pub, ordering five more beers."

    Ha Ha :)
