My daughter (now 21 years old) was a mini worker from birth. Kid didn't have 
a chance really. Knew all the words to most songs. Went to concerts with mom 
and dad from age 6 on. Wore out my copy of Black Fella White Fella and Black 
Rain videos. Used to amuse her friends by dancing like Pete. Although her 
taste in music changed around the age of 18, I still catch her humming River 
Runs Red, when she thinks I'm not listening!

>You reeeeead a newwwwwwwspaperrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr?  Get it?") and reading
