A toddler ballad

          SB's mantra these days is, "I do it all by my relf!" (She still can't make the s sound in words.) So I came up with some new lyrics to an old classic. It's a toddler ballad. Feel free to sing along...

When I was young
I always needed someone
Didn't think it was very much fun
Those days are gone

I may not live alone
But I'm sure of all the things I know
I want to shout in the play microphone
This is MY home

All by my relf
I'm gonna do it, all by my relf

Forevermore


I am so sure
Not the least bit insecure
Can't even bother to be obscure
There is no cure

All by my relf 
I'm gonna do it, all by my relf! 
Forevermore!


All by my relf
Because I'm two
All by my relf
I don't need you!

When I was young
I always needed someone
Didn't think it was very much fun
Those days are gone

All by my relf
I'm gonna do it, all by my relf! 

Forevermore


Uh huh huhhh!

All by my relf
I'm gonna do it



Pffffftttttttt!


Forevermore!


All by myself
Gonna do it
Forevermore


Yes, I'm gonna do it by my relf, forevermore, by my relf, forevermore!


          The song was originally done by Eric Carmen, but I figured Celine is easier to look at/listen to. :) Plus, SB is a girl, so this just works better. In case you want to play the video, listen to Celine singing and read the lyrics I came up with, trying to picture my little toddler singing it. 
          I haven't been able to stop, actually. It's just too funny. I've even taught SB to sing the refrain. She refuses to do so on camera, though. I'll keep trying to capture it so I can share...



          Note: If you are a regular here, you know my daughter has a speech disorder called Childhood Apraxia of Speech. If you are not, you can do a search for "CAS" in the right column to read about how hard she and I have worked, and how far she has come to get to where she can say/sing, "All by my relf." I am in no way making fun of her speech disorder, or any other child who has one. I think we deserve to be able to smile after all we have been through. I am, however, TOTALLY making fun of the crazy creatures we call, "toddlers." We do so love our wacky little gals and guys, but boy can they make us crazy!
