For the last few days I’ve had a new musical tic that draws heavily on Belinda Carlisle’s late 80s pop classic ‘Heaven is a Place on Earth’ for inspiration. True to form though, my ticced version has much more surreal lyrics than the original:
“Oh biscuit is a place on sheep.”
“Oh heaven is a place on beef.”
“Oh sheepdog is a place on earth.”
“Oh heaven is a place on Smurf.”
These tics have slipped out many, many times in the last few days, so much so that I keep hearing my friends and support workers humming the melody and singing the tics.
