Octopus Holler

My 7-year-old son invited me down to the basement tonight and asked me to be in his rock band Octopus Holler.  He sang and played guitar, while I played drums (neither of us know how to play either of these instruments by the way)  He wrote and sang 4 songs on the spot:

1. "Take Me On a Date Tuesday"
2. "Rattlesnake, Rattlesnake, You're Evil, You Will Kill Me"
3. "I Don't Want a Drumstick for Dinner (Maybe Breakfast or Lunch)"
4. "Why Are You a Punching Bag?"

Not only were these the song titles, but they were also the entire lyrics for each of these songs.  When we were all done "rehearsing", he asked me if I made a CD of what we did.  I apparently dropped the ball.  I thought it was just a rehearsal.
