What’s the most embarassing song that you regularly sing in the car to keep your children amused?
“Hands down, it has to be Little Bunny Foo Foo, complete with hand motions…” Paula, mom of 4
“When I sing this people in the next car glance over at the noise and then Look Away. But I can’t help myself! It must be sung at top volume. “I’ve been around for you, been up and down for you, but I just can’t get any relieeef…Swallowed my pride for you, lived and lied for you but you just make me feel like a thieeeef…You got me stealing your love away cause you never give it, Peeling the years away you know we can’t relive it. I make you laaaaugh Baby you make me cryyyyyy (all together now – you know you love this song!) I believe it’s TIME FOR ME TO FLYYYYYYYYY”
And I didn’t even have to google the lyrics. Scary, I know, but I love me my REO Speedwagon!” Cheryl, mom of two
“Okay, my daughter only likes me to sing ONE song. Maybe it’s because I am a horrible singer? And it is from The Sound of Music, and it goes something like this, Doe a Deer, a female deer. . . you get the point. I get to Ti, and have to start all over again and again and again.” Deborah, mom of three
“We used to sing “He’s got the whole world in His hands” to Hannah in the car to keep her awake…. He´s got the whole world in His hands, He´s got the wind and the rain in His hands, He´s got the the tiny little baby in His hands, He´s got the whole world in His hands. Then she requested her own personal verses – Mommy and Daddy, Nana and PopPop, and so on with family members. Then they got really silly – like the stoplights, other cars on the road, restaurants, whatever…ugh…the repetition still gives me a headache, oh the things we will do to preserve naptime for at home!” Cynthia, mom of 2
