Ta dida da
How I wish it was still so
Ta dida da
Why'd you ever have to go?
Ta dida da
I don't really care anymore
Ta dida da
The world's bigger than we think
Ta dida da
Those are now the years of yester-lore
Ta dida da
Ta dida da
Met you at the roller rink
That world's over
This one begins
All without you.


The author's comments:
Someone on Distant Shore once asked me "Whats that song called that goes ta dida tada ...?", I didn't know what that song was, so I made one up; actaully I ended up doing three at request, and this is the first. I kinda skipped over the 'ta' of the last word.
I know it's not really any good, I just wanted to share it and the story behind it.

I like it. It's like something someone would just be sort of humming under their breath. It's an extraordinarily ordinary poem, and I think that lends it power.

I like that name, Irene. It's old but in an nostalgic way. It's pretty too. :)

It's a real word. 'Snippety' and some of it's synonyms 'arrant, assuming, assumptive, audacious, barefaced, blatant, bold, boldfaced, brash'

"sharp or curt, especially in a supercilious or haughty way; impertinent."

"scrappy or fragmentary."

In answer to your question; snipitty is not actualy a word.  Just an expression I grew up with that is somthing like a cross between short temperd and snobish.  Get it?

What does spipitty mean? I understand. I'm like that too, I see people getting made fun of and I have to defend them, whether I'm friends with them or not.

OK, OK, I didn't mean to be spipitty. I just wanted you to know. I would never have said anything in the first place if I had realy understood the situation.  It's just that it really iritates me when I see people made fun of.  And I thought that is what you were doing. This just reminds me I supose that my judgment is falable, and somtimes I forget.

I like to ask a lot of questions, I like trying to get to the bottom of things, I like to let the other person explain before I make assumptions or judgments. But people generally get all defensive when questioned, I think that shows a degredation of conversation, you know?

I don't think so. That's an interesting idea, though.
