- For Teachers
Hey, everybody! What's the man saying to his wife before he says: "good night honey"?
I would like a transcription
Genesis - Land Of Confusion - YouTube

Would someone mind answering this?
Inexplicably, he says:
"Goody two shoes. Beddy bye bows/boes time again."
It makes absolutely no sense. "Goody two shoes" is a slang term for someone who always follows the rules and behaves sensibly at all times. "Beddy byes" is a childish term for "bedtime".
Mind you, it appears to be a puppet of Ronald Reagan and we all know that politicians talk rubbish most of the time!
As soon as you mentioned it was the Ronald Reagan puppet, I flashed-back to the 80's and I could hear him say "it's beddy bye boes time again!" HAHA I will definitely have to watch this later tonight!
hehehe... yeahhh.... good times!
So, before Ronald Reagan says "it's beddy bye boes time again!" what does he say?
Ronald Reagan was an actor, and one of the movies he was in was called "Bedtime for Bonzo," which featured a monkey.
I can't watch YouTube from here, but perhaps that gives some better context.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
