Thread Name: Is this song appropriate?: Slap Her Down Again Paw
Subject: RE: Is this tune appropriate?: Slap Her Down Again Paw
I sing You're Always Welcome at Our House to kids, and they always seem to like it. I sometimes get complaints from their parents, but I explain that I see value in a song that shows the absurdity of solving problems with violence.

But "Slap Her Down, Pa" makes me cringe. It doesn't strike me as funny at all. On the other hand, I asked for the lyrics because I wanted to know what they said, and I'd like to hear the song - once.
