The Lyrics

One of my favorite kid-lit characters is Ramona Quimby, the impish young girl getting the big-screen treatment this month. This parody chronicles some of her woes in "Ramona the Brave" - a copycat classmate, a bedroom to herself, a strict teacher, a failed attempt at profanity and a tussle with a tough dog. Wonder if any of that will show up in the movie...
Pesky Ramona, making Susan howl.
What did she expect when she aped your owl?
Crushing her creature... It was only fair.
Stupid stuffy Sue and her boingy hair!

Thought you’d like a room apart from Beezus.
Figured independence would be fun.
Now when night arrives, your blood just freezes.
Bring on the sun!

Pesky Ramona, whiskers on your Qs.
Teacher says to skip ‘em but you refuse.

Six is no fun!
Pesky Ramona, swearing in your rage.
“Guts!” sounds simply ghoulish to a girl your age.

Fighting off the mongrel who’s attacking.
You will lose a shoe before you’re done.
Never mind the footwear that you’re lacking;
Run, ‘Mona, run!

Pesky Ramona, who’d’ve ever guessed
Life could be so tough for a pint-sized pest?

I used to read the Ralph Mouse books when I was a kid. She's such a talented writer, and it's good to see she's getting some big screen treatment in a nice way.
Nice and clever treat, and got some good chuckles out of 'run Mona run!' 5's from this kid at heart.

Thanks, Warren! Hee, whenever my brother has to get somewhere in a hurry, I holler at him, "Run, Nathan, ruuuuunnnnn!!!!" I read all of her Ramona/Henry/Beezus books when I was a kid and a bunch of her others as well. Curious to see how the movie turns out!
