As seen in the post below, we rock out to kids songs much of the time. I've sang the song "Oh, my darling Clementine..." many times. I never actually knew the words to the other verses though. The song is about the man's daughter drowning, and him watching her and being unable to help because "Alas I was no swimmer, so I lost my Clementine..." Seriously?? Why is that considered a KIDS SONG?? For real, it goes into details of how she did it too. "She walked the ducks down... her foot hit a splinter..." I'm now retiring that cd.
I do love to hear my kids sing funny songs though. The funniest part is when they fill in the words that they aren't so sure of. Example:
Lightning: (Still singing Christmas carols) "Jingle Bells! Jingle Bells! Jingle all the WAYYY! Oh much fun to ride and sing and play! Hey! Somedin-somedin I love my Momma HEY! HEY!"
He just loves the "HEY" part.
Her Highness: (My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean-- yet another kids song I'm unsure of the meaning) "My BODY lies over the ocean. My BODY lies over the sea. My BODY lies over the ocean. So bring back my BODY to me."
I asked what in the world that meant. How could your body lie over the ocean?
To which she replied: "Momma, it's just a song!"
She still doesn't believe that it's "Bonnie."
