Which One Of These Things

Tensions in the Emerald City were high this morning…and it had nothing to do with cat barf. No, what brought us to verging on fisticuffs this morning was over who knew the “correct” version of the “One of These Things Is Not Like The Other” song from Seame Street.

There was:

One of these things is not like the others /  one of these things just doesn’t belong…

and

One of these things is not like the others / three of these things are kind of the same…

Thanks to iPhones and the magic of Google, we discovered that we were *both* right. (Though yes, technically the first one is righter, but shhh.) And thank goodness, too. No one wants  to threaten Global Thermonuclear War before 8:00 in the morning.

So…which version of the song do you know?

The second version is what comes to mind when I hum the first line.

The first one (coincidentally, I was singing it to my daughters last night at dinner).

The first one usually comes to mind more for me, too, although having watched Sesame Street for years over my children's shoulders, I'm familiar with both.

From a song lyric perspective, the first one is better because of the repetition.

The first one is near and dear to my heart.
