Sadly, the first radio song lyric that stuck to my 5-year-old's tongue was, "Do the Helen Keller and talk with your hips." from 3Oh!3's "Don't Trust Me" which is a really, really unwholesome song - and I am rather dismayed that though I'd like to blame the neighbors for miseducating him (he DID hear this over there a LOT), I know for certain that he's heard it on our car radio - and I confess that - in spite of the abhorable sentiments and lyrics (ick) - I really like the tune. Fortunately, this is the ONLY line from the song that stuck with him (to my knowledge).
The other song lyric that comes out of his sweet little mouth is "Tonight's gonna be a good, good night." from Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" which also is so, so catchy - but, alas, is the quintessential party song (and not the 5-year-old-birthday-party kind of party; more like the I-am-gonna-get-messed-up-tonight-and-do-all-sorts-of-crazy-things-I'd-never-do-sober kind of party).
So, anyway - it was with GREAT (GREAT!!!!) pleasure that I heard Xander singing along to Chris Tomlin's anthem of praise, "Sing, Sing, Sing" today as I drove him home from daycare today. Hallelujah! Finally, a Christian tune catchy enough to stick to my impressionable young man. Whoo hoo!!!! Thank you, Mr. Tomlin!
