In honor of the fun children’s song “There’s a Hole in My Bucket”, today we celebrate National Hole in my Bucket Day! Wow, we literally have a day for everything! As I listened to this, I wondered why no one has made this into a rap song?!!
It has a nice “catchy” tune and is based on a conversation, between Henry and Liza, about a leaky bucket. It describes a deadlock situation as follows:
“Henry has got a leaky bucket, and Liza tells him to repair it. But to fix the leaky bucket, he needs straw. To cut the straw, he needs a knife. To sharpen the knife, he needs to wet the sharpening stone. To wet the stone, he needs water. However, when Henry asks how to get the water, Liza’s answer is “in a bucket”. It is implied that only one bucket is available — the leaky one, which, if it could carry water, would not need repairing in the first place.” (Wikipedia)
Do you remember this song from your childhood?
Here’s a cute video of the song performed by Muppets! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYY6Q4nRTS4
