Twinkle Twinkle Ringo Starr


So you all know that my Mom is Ringo Starr's biggest fan. She has been in love with him since February 1964 and thinks he is the cutest, funniest and best guy there is. Her dream in life is to sit down with a cup of tea and chat with Ringo. Anyhow....my mom cracks me up with her stories about when she was a teenager in the 60's. Like many fans, she collected Beatles trading cards, wore a Beatles wig, and had countless 45 's of their singles. But she also told me that she used to say this little chant when jumping rope or whatever.....so silly

How I love you how you are.
Underneath that mop of hair
Is my Ringo under there?

LOL! So does anyone else have little goofy things they would say or write from back in the day?

    I love your mom!!!! That is adorable...and also way cool!!

    I may have told you this before, but I found a bunch of sheets from my mom's high school typing class......in between pages and pages of typing exercises is (all of a sudden) neatly typed lyrics for "Don't Bother Me" and a few other songs from "Meet The Beatles"! I know my mom's favorite song on "Meet The Beatles" was "Don't Bother Me", so I can only surmise that she either typed the lyrics on her own, or perhaps the teacher let them get some practice by typing up the lyrics to the Beatles.

    I love that your mom still remembers that rhyme, and that she passed it onto you!!!
