Fun with lyrics

Have you ever had fun changing the lyrics to a song? I do. And this seems to be a family trait. My dad would walk around the house just making up his own words to song tunes. I would roll my eyes and say, "Daaadddd...that's not how the song goes." And he would give me a goofy grin.

And now I find that I make up or change song lyrics all the time. My latest change is a small one but very fun to sing. It's the song, "Two Worlds" written and sung by Phil Collins for the animated Disney "Tarzan" movie. The original lyrics are "two worlds, one family". I've changed it to "two girls, one family".

Here's the refrain:
Put your faith in what you most believe in
Two girls, one family
Trust your heart
Let fate decide
To guide these lives we see.

I can just see the little Biscuit singing it Mommy's way. Makes me smile.

So all you girlfriends out there, give this revised song a try. Sing it with all your heart. Who might catch on!

OK, so that song makes me tear up anyway... and your version is so much better!

Re-writing songs also runs in my family, also via my dad. We used to pick a song and trade off verse for verse to see who could come up with the best lines.

Hi, My name is Stacy and I just started reading your blog as research. My partner and I are thinking about having a baby and I'm a super researcher, lol. I started at the beginning and was waiting to comment but this is something my gf does all the time, changing up the lyric of songs just to be silly or to make me smile so I thought I'd share that you aren't the only one. Will comment more when I finish reading.
