Wee Hairy Beasties

Elliot is super-addicted to the Wee Hairy Beasties, a Chicago-based kid's music band. Actually, he's addicted just to the song Wee Hairy Beasties, by the Wee Hairy Beasties. Actually no: he's addicted to the chorus of the song Wee Hairy Beasties, which goes
Wee!
Hairy beasties...
Wee!
Hairy beasties...
Wee!
Hairy beasties...

He couldn't care less about the rest of the song -- let alone the rest of the album. During the verses (like, 5 seconds after the end of the chorus) he turns to me forlornly, puts his hands together like a supplicant, and says "mooore? moooar? morr beek?" (Which means beasties.)

If you need morr beek, the song is here.

We really like the Banana Slug String Band. They are a kid's band based in Santa Cruz, CA. I found it at the library one day, and since then we have bought 4 of their CDs. The kids like the music, and it is actually pretty good. A lot of kids music is really terrible...
