Music Monday: Henry the Eighth by Herman's Hermits

I don't think I can explain why this catchy little ditty has been running through my head, but I started to sing it to London and Maddie on our way home from their modern dance lessons at Garden State Ballet the other night, and now my girls have been singing it, too. I think we decided that too many contestants in the early rounds of American Idol chose the same song, so to avoid competing with others singing the same song, the Butter Bites could use "Henry the VIII" for their audition for Simon Cowell's new show, The X Factor. We dare you to listen and try to stop singing it over and over and over again. This fun video was created by a middle school student for a social studies project... you'll see a lot of the number 8... which is particularly relevant for Maddie, who turns 8 in March... we are counting down the days to her birthday and her slumber party.



I'm Henry the eighth I am
Henry the eighth I am, I am
I got married to the widow next door
She's been married seven times before
And every one was an Henry (Henry)
She wouldn't have a Willy or a Sam (no Sam)
I'm her eighth old man, I'm Henry
Henry the eighth I am

Second verse same as the first

I'm Henry the eighth I am
Henry the eighth I am, I am
I got married to the widow next door
She's been married seven times before
And every one was an Henry (Henry)
She wouldn't have a Willy or a Sam (no Sam)
I'm her eighth old man, I'm Henry
Henry the eighth I am

------ lead guitar ------

I'm Henry the eighth I am
Henry the eighth I am, I am
I got married to the widow next door
She's been married seven times before
And every one was an Henry (Henry)
She wouldn't have a Willy or a Sam (no Sam)
I'm her eighth old man, I'm Henry
Henry the eighth I am

H-E-N-R-Y
Henry (Henry)
Henry (Henry)
Henry the eighth I am, I am
Henry the eighth I am

I love this song! It is one of my favorites from growing up and I have it on my MP3 player to sing randomly in the car!
