My daughter's favorite one is US Forces.  She is humming it all the time, and it's now stuck in my head.  She is now 12.  
Sure beats Frank Zappa, which I had to take away and hide for good.  She was about 4, and would be singing Zappa's songs while in a shopping cart in a grocery stores, and I did get some looks from other shoppers

So far as I was concerned, having my twerps start singing Oils bits was infinitely preferable to what they were singing previously, which was a bunch of depressing death-or-glory Scottish folk songs their father taught them as mere infants.  Having “the wich get wicher” replace “Welcome to your goh-wee [gory] bed” was a big plus so far as I was concerned - Beth

The first thing my son has learned to sing with any real accuracy is the intro to "The Dead Heart" (He turned 2 in September). Now he frequently runs around the house house going  "Do Do Do Do Do Do Do".


Now I wonder what he is going to learn for an encore...
