Jane and Fred

When I was small, I had a Disney jukebox toy.

It played popular Disney songs, including
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and Do Re Mi.

I tried to find a picture of the jukebox online but failed.

At any rate, I sang these songs at the top of my lungs, and with great gusto. I am sure I drove my parents crazy.

In the Do Re Mi song, I sang one line incorrectly.

Instead of:

Te, a drink with jam and bread

I sang it

Te, a drink with Jane and Fred.

Jane and Fred made perfect sense to me. Of course you would want to have tea with your friends, Jane and Fred. Why drink alone?

Even after someone told me I was singing it wrong, I didn't believe them. I was an adult before I realized I really was singing the line wrong.

I have no idea what that means but my last entry, the Do Re Mi dance thing on youtube, made me think about it.


  1. That is so funny! I think I will sing it the Jane and Fred way from now on.

    Happy to see you at the market! Wasn't it a pretty day? Hope you are surviving all the beautiful blooms.

  2. That's hilarious! I like your version---I never drink my tea with jam and bread, but I would be happy to drink with Jane and Fred.

  3. Jane and Fred? Why, I think I knew them! LOL

    Sick of being sick.

  4. Reminds me of my "Hail Mary Full of Grapes." It sounded right considering it was followed by "fruit of thy womb" and I didn't know what a womb was.
