“…We’ll cry Hilde! Hildegarde!”

We’ve been wanting a piano for a while and decided this Christmas was the right time to get one.

We found one pretty quickly that seemed good to us: it was old and had a key out of tune, but it was in Ferguson, just a few blocks away.

We’ve been counting down the days until we could have it delivered. Today was the day! Check out this video of the girls in action:

The song the girls are singing is “Hildegarde” from the end of “Windstorm in Bubbleland,” an opera on “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” Here are the lyrics:

Hildegarde, dear Hildegarde,
Our regard for you’s the highest.
You will always be through all our history
Brave Hilde, Hildegarde!

Hildegarde, brave Hildegarde,
Our regard for you’s the highest.
On that great day when we’ll meet again
We’ll cry Hilde, Hildegarde!

  1. Hope Yoli is able to find a lot of three part harmony pieces of music! Jadzia’s singing reminds me of Alfalfa in the Little Rascals.

  2. Josh – Hey I go to the same church as your brother here in Rolla. Just stumbled upon your blog by way of your Twitter account. Just wanted to drop you a line to say I’m really enjoying reading it. Blessings to you and hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
