Ear Way In Hay Ee Thay Uney May

While waiting for #1GF! to get out the door this morning, I was sitting on the bed and singing to the baby. “Ear way in hay ee thay uney may. Ear way in hay ee thay uney may.”

#1GF! snapped out of her morning routine for a second. “Wait. What are you singing?”

I shrugged and repeated. “Ear way in hay ee thay uney may.”

#1GF! shook her head. “What is it? Did you make it up?”

It wasn’t an invalid question. It’s not entirely uncommon for me to make up songs. “No, I’m singing ‘We’re in the Money’.”

“Oh my god.”

“It’s Pig Latin.”

“Oh. my. god. She knows a handful of words and you’re already branching out into Pig Latin? Is that a good idea?”

I shook my head. “It’s from this movie from 1933 called Gold Diggers. Ginger Rogers sings it.”

“So…you’re singing it in Pig Latin.”

“She did too.”

“No, she didn’t.”

“Oh, yes she did.”

“In 1933.” #1GF! dipped her chin. “Riiight.”

“Really. It’s an old-school, big-production dance number until the camera gets right up in her face and she starts singing in Pig Latin. I’m telling you. It’s really weird.”

#1GF! shook her head. “How do you find these things?”

I mistakenly thought it was an actual question. “Well, during a writing break yesterday, I was looking for a little history on Esquivel, and Wikipedia called him the ‘The Busby Berkley of Cocktail Music.’ So, I was like, ‘Who the hell is Busby Bixby,’ andโ€””

#1GF! patted my chest. “Okay. I have to go.”

“You’ll see. I’m going to find the video for you.”

She kissed me as if she were patting my head. “Love you, gotta run.”

“It’s real,” I muttered as she walked down the hall.

“We’re In The Money” Sung By Ginger Rogers In Pig Latin

So, to prove to #1GF! that I wasn’t making anything up, here’s “We’re In The Money” sung by Ginger Rogers in Gold Diggers of 1933 in pig latin. To skip the Busby Bixby dance number and get right to the weirdness, skip forward to 1:35. Remember, kids: Don’t do drugs.

  1. Oh you kids- we spoke Pig Latin in grammar school so we could “fool” our teachers. Little did we know that they (and probably their grandparents) had done the same when they were kids.

    Besides, this can’t be much weirder than “Three Little Fishies” and the “did dad waddum choo” chorus.

    What is REALLY weird in this video is the thing hanging in front of Ginger’s crotchital area!
