  • Music:

it takes....oh, god, make it stop!

I've just been doing some hoovering, and couldn't stop singing the Diff'rent Strokes theme while doing so, even though I can only remember the words to the first verse and the chorus (is there any more, actually? No, don't tell me). Also, as I said in my previous post, I find myself singing it with great "expression", rather like this:

[voice of admonishment]Now, the world don't move to the beat of just one drum!
[more gently]What might be right for you, may not be right for some.
[triumphantly]A man is born, he's a man of means
[more subdued]Then along come two - [very earnestly] they got nothing but their dreams.

[joyfully] 'Cause they got - diff'rent strokes!
It takes - diff'rent strokes!
It takes diff'rent strokes to move the world, yes it does, it takes...
[very loudly] Diff'rent strokes to mooove the wooooooorld!

Please, suggest some other song to remove this earworm! Help me!
