I think this is a cute little text to world connection. We were driving around today in the truck and the ever-so-catchy Taylor Swift “You Belong to Me” song was playing.
Mikey: I like this song. It says that word that they say on Word Girl all the time.
Me : What word is that?
Mikey: something I couldn’t figure out that sounds like: butchert
Me: Blood shirt?
Mikey: No, butchert
Later at home Mikey tells me it’s not a word they say, but a person. So we go to the PBS kids website, search for Word Girl, scroll through the villians, and he identifies the butcher from the pictures shown.
Mikey: on the song it goes when you wake up and find the butchert
Me: Let’s go listen to the song, because I’m still confused (goes and pulls up Taylor Swift lyrics website and listens to song with Mikey)
Here’s the real lyrics of the chorus:
But she wears short skirts, I wear T-shirts
She’s Cheer Captain and I’m on the bleachers
Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
That what you’re looking for has been here the whole time
Apparently the part about “wake and find that what you’re looking for” sounds like “wake and a find the butcher” to little Mikey. Thought it was pretty funny and I’ll probably sing along in the truck to Taylor Swift while thinking about Word Girl from now on. Oh that song is so catchy. Sorry if you now have Taylor Swift stuck in your head.
