Apparently Mary’s tastes have changed

Lately, Swee’Pea has been singing her little heart out. She can sing her ABC’s and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star with ease. She has some of the songs on the Pop charts firmly in her song catalog as well. She is still very fond of Fergie’s Big Girls Don’t Cry and lately has been fond of the Katie Perry’s I Kissed A Girl. We play with the lyrics to that song and we all get a good giggle when we sing “I kissed a Monk, and I liked it!” This isn’t the only song we change the lyrics to. TheMonk has always like the song “Bad Day” by Daniel Powter but when I sing it to him in the morning, I sing “You’re gonna have a good day… Playin’ around…”

I guess this changing the lyrics of our favorite songs has begun to wear off.

Yesterday, as we were getting into the car to go to the park, Swee’Pea began singing her version of a classic…

“Mary had a little man… little man… little man…”

  3. I’m the queen of making up lyrics. You should hear what I did with the Wiggles theme song.

  5. Ha! Love it! My younger daughter is into singing along with the radio right now. She has one main objective when it comes to listening to music, though. It is to listen for the word “but” in a song and then yell out, “She said Butt! HA! She just said Butt!” As you know, the innocent conjunction “but” comes up a lot in everyday speech and song, so there is a lot of giggling and shrieking coming from the backseat.

  7. That’s hilarious.

    A couple of days ago, Ronen was mumbling something about getting married. When E asked him who he was going to marry, he replied: “the little lamb!”
