If I don’t write this, it will bug me all day

I’m supposed to be writing test documentation reports right now. Only I’ve got the beginnings of some dumb parody song stuck in my head.

Squiddo is selling chocolate to raise money for summer camp. I brought one of the boxes to work. On the way in, before I dropped the boys off at school, “Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?” came up on the shuffled play lists. So of course my brain started coming up with alternate lyrics. I need to push this off the stack so I can go back to the reports I’ve got to get done.

“Do You Want to Buy Some Chocolate?”
(To the tune of “Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?”

Do you want to buy some chocolate?
It’s a fund raiser for my kid.
He wants to go to summer camp
so he’s selling sweets
to help him pay his way-

It used to be much cheaper
to go to camp,
but now it costs much more!
So do you want to buy some chocolate?
It doesn’t have to be some chocolate,
I’ve got Twizzlers, too.
