To the right,
Step it up, step it up
Alllright!!!

The girls worked on their balance training this week in their skiing lessons, which means they needed to hold their arms out a lot and even ski on just one ski.  Things most of us seasoned skiers would really struggle with, yet these little bundles of energy just see it as a game and excel at them with such ease.

The title and lyrics are from the late 90′s hit Step it Up! by Stereo MC on their album Connected.

Ready, Steady, GO!

Ninjas Ski as They Please

Ninjas Ski as They Please

The girls and I love to go skiing and on the way up we tend to listen to either some Gilles Vigneault’s Un Dimanche à Kyoto, The High School Musical 3 sound track or my personal favourite the Barenaked Ladies kids album SnackTime. This week we made our way up to Vallée Bleue listening to Snacktime so it became the soundtrack in my to my whole ski day.

When I saw “Thing 1″ get off the chairlift, all I could think of was Ninjas.  Stylish blond Ninjas, but still Ninjas!

The lyrics to the song are truly awesome:

I woke up this morning and everything was different
Something was strange in the air
I woke up this morning and everything was different
I knew that the Ninjas had been there

I looked all around my bedroom
Underneath the dresser
Behind the bed, but nothing could be found
There was nothing left behind them
No way that I could find them
No fingerprints or crumbs on the ground.

The Ninjas are deadly and silent
They’re also unspeakably violent
They speak Japaneses; do whatever they please,
And sometimes they vacation in Ireland.

The Ninjas are deadly and silent
They’re also unspeakably violent
They speak Japanese; do whatever they please,
And if you tear off their masks, they’ll be smiling.

Special Thanks to Gracenote  for not letting me copy these lyrics and force me to relisten to the song on repeat (many many many times) in order to post them here and possibly give the Barenaked Ladies a better mention. (#WhenDRMKillsMarketing&FairUse)
NOTE: Gracenote does not get a free link or tag due to their obvious “suckage” in this matter.
