I was singing the song "She's Gone" by Hall & Oates today. Katie was listening to me and she said, "I don't really understand that song."
I tried to explain. "Well, it's a guy singing that his girlfriend left him."
"Why did she leave him?" Katie wanted to know.
"The song doesn't say."
"Maybe it says something at the beginning of the song about why she left him," Katie offered.
"No, honey. I've heard that song lots of times, and it never says why she left. But he must have done something wrong for her to leave him that way."
Katie mulled this over a bit and then decided, "I think at the beginning of that song they should have a girl's voice saying, 'You....have....failed.'"
