Yummmy tapioca

I'm eating my tapioca pudding this morning at my desk and then all of a sudden I start singing "tap tap tap tap tapioca." Why you may ask yourself? Thoroughly Modern Millie is why! I <3 that movie!

"Everybody tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tapioca, Everybody, slap, slap, slap, slap, slap, slap, slapioca.If ya got the dap, dap, dap-dap-dappier flappers flap-flap-flappierEveryone is happier when the do the tap tapioca.When they do the flap flapioca.Tap, tap, tap, tapioca,Slap, slap, slap, slapioca,Tap, tap, tap, tap the tapioca.Let's pretend we've got a bowl, we're gonna have some sport.Ha!Add trumpled licks and a rag-time beat, let's say about a quart.Yeah!Ya stir and stir it with your knee, adding a bump or two.Ya heat it, mash it, beat it, smash it, if there's a lump or two.Don't let the temperature drop to many degrees,Or you'll wind up with what is called the frozen tapioca freeze!Everybody, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap tapioca, everybody freeze!Slap, slap, slap, slap, slap, slap slapioca everybody freeze!"
