The littlest Bandas turns two today and in celebration of this huge milestone, I decided to rip off the great Paul Simon and pen an ode to Archie’s most prized possession. His lovie. Or as he refers to it, his “Buh Buh”.

50 Ways to Lose Your Lovie

“The problem is it’s stuck inside my bed” he said to me
“Twisted in the sheets now wet with pee.
I’d like to help it in it’s struggle to be free,
There must be fifty ways to lose my Lovie”

He said “It’s really that my rabbit’s being rude
He gets so jealous that a Lovie lost causes my Boo Hoos
But Rabbit can’t dry your tears like good lovies do
There must be fifty ways to lose your Lovie
Fifty ways to lose your Lovie”

It just slips out the backpack
Falls out of my hand, Stan
Stolen by a big boy, Roy
Or gets soaked in pee
Gets left on the bus, Gus
Always causes a big fuss
Mom should stock up for me, Lee
But those things ain’t free

Ooo it just slips out the backpack
Falls out of my hand, Stan
Stolen by a big boy, Roy
Or gets soaked in pee
Gets left on the bus, Gus
Always causes a big fuss
Mom should stock up for me, Lee
But those things ain’t free

I said “It grieves me so to see you in such pain
I wish there was something I could do to make you smile again”
He said “I appreciate that and would you please explain
About the fifty ways”

He said “We both know I can’t sleep without it tonight
And I will cry until you make this whole thing right”
And then he smiled at me and I realized he probably was right
There must be fifty ways to lose your lovie
Fifty ways to lose your lovieI

It’s forgotten at snack, Jack
Gets left in the van, Stan
Traded for a toy, Roy
Left in the laundry
Run over by a bus, Gus
Always causes a big fuss
Mom should stock up for me, Lee
But those things ain’t free

It’s forgotten at snack, Jack
Gets left in the van, Stan
Traded for a toy, Roy
Left in the laundry
Run over by a bus, Gus
Always causes a big fuss
Mom should stock up for me, Lee
But those things ain’t free

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARCHIBALD!
