I wish my dad listened to music instead of being on the internet all day long. Maybe his cobwebs would clear then. Not sure if he is Alzheimer's, but something is wrong up in his noggin that's for sure.

Beans beans the musical fruit.
The more you eat the more you toot.
The more you toot the better you feel.
So let's have beans at every meal.

Music soothes the savage gases.
