This evening, my oldest son (JamCar) came up to me and showed me (and sang for me) a song he had written. I present it to you in full:

What do I Hear?

Chorus:
What do I hear,
Oh, what do I hear?

Verse 1:
Is it a kitten meowing,
or a tiger growling?

(Chorus)

Verse 2:
Is it a fareis wheel turning 
or a wolf dog howling?

Now you may be wondering – how old is your son? Surely the author of such an accomplished piece of work must be in high school, if not college. Nay, says Jamsco, my oldest son has not reached his tenth year.

If you would see into the mind of this artist, I can tell you that he pointed out that he wanted to express in each verse the contrast of something pleasant and something frightening. Also, his muse for writing this song was his youngest brother (age 4) asking the titular question at the playground. 

Please note also the nontraditional (some may call it avant garde) spelling of the word “Ferris”
