A Routine's a Routine

Every evening I babysit, this little lady requests two very specific songs to have sung to her before she goes to sleep. Last night was no exception (although she did add "Yankee Doodle" to the list this time).

The first song is hilarious, and I can't for the life of me sing it right - but I blaze through anyways as penance for introducing it to her. She calls it "De Tacow Sowng":

The second, "Fawthew Dod," is ten times sweeter, and always has me leaving her bedroom with a renewed outlook on life... She learned it at Family Camp last year and, as I sing, she watches me, mouthing the words.
(this isn't exactly the same version, but...)

Her taste in genre combinations, and her strict adherence to the routine always makes me grin!

What a sweetie! We are all rather creatures of habit, eh? Just hope those habits are beneficial to us!

That was hilarious! I have to ask, 'Was it really for real?'.... It was very funny anyway!
And the last song was lovely - definitely more conducive to going to sleep!

I'd never heard either song, so you just broadened my musical horizons, and I loved it!
