I'm so happy because a cicada peed on me

I thought I was beyond being surprised by the songs they learn at kinder here: 'It's fun to be alive' and the never ending 'mixing song' were surely the nth degree in 'they're singing about what??'

Nope.

At the moment we have a song about being peed on by a cicada.

For real:

Summer is really great.
I'm really happy.
The sun is shining.
The snake is crawling.
I got peed on by a cicada.
I'm really happy.
Summer is really great.
I'm really happy.

Apparently there's a second verse but they haven't got it memorised yet. Can't wait. What next? Ants ate my picnic, I'm really happy, Got heatstroke, Summer is really great...

Oh and Summer in Nagano is not that cold. M and A are just weird and insist on wearing winter PJs year round.

bonafide kinder song

Japanese lyrics:

夏はとてもすてきだな
本当に嬉しいな
太陽はきらきら
蛇はにょろにょろ
蝉におしっこ掛けられちゃった。
本当に嬉しいな
夏はとてもすてきだな
ほんとに嬉しいな

oops. Just listened again it's 掛けられた not 掛けられちゃった. Can't believe I didn't have the lyrics down the number of times I've heard that song! I think Amy enjoys a kinder sanctioned saying of the word oshikko!

That's funny, I had completely forgotten that song, despite having heard it n million times each summer for three years!

Your girls are SO CUTE. And they have a soulmate in Harry who is always done up to the eyeballs in fleece at bedtime. Unless it's midwinter when he sleeps naked....
