Come on, Space Monsters, bring it on! Let's cut and poke! Okay, go, go, go!

As I think I've mentioned before in this blog, our two little girls are adopted (not from across the world, Angelina Jolie style, but from here in our town). Neither could speak when they came to live with us, and we know very little about their lives before us. We used to comb every word they said about their pasts, sifting for clues. Their memories have slowly moved from realism to fantasy, however, and now they are less a source of concern and more a source of, well, amusement.

For instance, KK told me last week her "other Papa" is Gamera.

So this is for her, and for anyone else hungrily yearning to know the actual lyrics to the Gamera theme song.

Bet you spend a lot of money on fireproof undergarments.

Hey he fights like I fight - cut poke poke. :)

Gamera was MY other papa when I was a kid. Sigh. Those were the days....

That clip was so funny & odd! I sang along to the go-go-go part.

We have a serious cult of personality thing going on with Gamera in our house. I "fly" the girls to bed while singing the Gamera theme song after stories. With, of course, the MST3K lyrics:
"Gamera, Gamera
Gamera is really neat
He is made of turtle meat
We all love you Gamera!"

What's really cute is hearing Kay sing that song! And that she loves him even though he's made of turtle meat.
