I am sitting at my computer, listening to my son play a few feet away from me. (Yes, I know I should be standing.) He is singing a brilliant mashup of "Frosty the Snowman," "Abracadabra," "Little Red Caboose," and "All I Want for Christmas Is You." (Trust me; it's brilliant.) He sings a few lines of one song, then moves seamlessly into the next. The problem comes during one of the Frosty bits. He is singing this:
Frosty the snowman knew the sun was hot that day. So he said something and something else before I melt away...
That would be my fault, as I didn't know the words, so I just sang "something and something else," in place of them and that's how he learned it. I have no excuse for not knowing the words: I have a smartphone and could have easily looked them up at any time.
So here's what we've learned: Don't be lazy. Look up the words to holiday songs.
But listening to my son's mashup reminded me that he sings in a way that is similar to his meltdowns (go with me on this):
Or you could follow me and find out what other song lyrics I don't know. (Hint: There are a lot.)
