Weekends Are For Kids

My 3-year-old daugher, Andi, has always loved to sing. But now she’s putting more and more words to her songs, repeating lyrics she’s heard rather than just making up her own. Unfortunately, she only knows 3 songs pretty well.

Song 1: There’s a song in High School Musical 3 where Troy and Gabriella are breaking up (don’t lie – you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about.) Anyway, Gabriella laments her fortune in life, pining, “I’ve gotta go my own way…”

Song 2: There is a song in The Land Before Time part 87 (or thereabouts) where Sarah, the little female triceratops, is teaching us about the difficulties of being in a mixed family when your father triceratops hooks up with a new mate. She sings, “It’s so unfair! I thought we were a family-y-y!”

Song 3: “Lord I Lift Your Name On High.”

Unfortunately, they all kind of run together in the mind of a 3-year-old. Hence, here’s what we’re getting:

“I’ve gotta go my own way… but it’s so unfair! I thought we were a family who came from heaven to earth; to show the way…”

    I stand corrected – apparently song 1 is from High School Musical 2. Not 3. Shame on me.
