The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

On the wall there are bottles of beer

Some poor soul Googled his way into this place in search of "Henry the eighth I am" verse sixty-eight.

Second verse, of course, is same as the first, and the third turns out to be identical to the the second — so I conclude that the 68th verse is likewise unchanged, except for the inevitable effects of vocal fatigue.

Still, I can't imagine anyone singing sixty-eight verses of this; it's got to be one of those rhetorical questions for which you don't really want an answer, like "If M&M's melt in your mouth but not in your hand, what do they do under your arm?"

The kid who's gotten bored after 700 repetitions of "Are we there yet?" because the old man has turned up his iPod headphones all the way to "Concorde."

"Of course we aren't there yet, you knucklehead. Does it look like we're stopped?"

How much I missed by not being indulged (in that way, anyway) as a child....
