brain cells I will never get back

There is a commercial for yogurt on tv right now; a woman is eating yogurt through the seasons, looking at her bikini hanging on the wall, until finally they show her hopping happily into a car, the hanger swinging on the wall, as she wears her bikini after having lost weight by eating the aforementioned yogurt. Through it all, the song "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" is playing...but my brain keeps replacing it with a bastardized version from a decades-old commercial, that goes something like this:
[clearing throat..ahem, ahem ahem]
[singing in high-pitched kid voice]

"IIIII loooove thooooose...
Itsy bitsy, teeny weeny
Cans of Van Camp's Beanie Weenies
Hot dogs and beans fixed my favorite way.
My mom says Beanie Weenies are nutritious
[switch to higher pitched excited kid voice]
**That's okay, they're STILL delicious!!**
[back to lower high-pitched kid voice]
For lunch or snacks, I eat some each day!!"

[Wonder if there is a sample of that brain-cell-stealing jingle out there on teh intrawebs somewhere??]
