The Lyrical Stylings of Rachel

On a relatively regular basis, I receive demands to sing songs. If you are the parent of a toddler, you know exactly what I’m talking about there.

The problem is, the requests I get are for songs that often do not exist – or if they do I certainly don’t know them. While I’m not even close to being as talented as my brother, Caleb, I think I do okay.

It’s true that sometimes I cop out – when asked to sing “The Donald Song” I simply belt out:

That’s made for you and me?

D-O-N-A-L-D D-U-C-K

Donald Duck

Donald Duck!

Forever may we hold your banner high, high high!

But other creations are slightly more inventive. I share them with you now in the hope of inspiring you to develop your own songs, or at least to make you feel better about your own lyrical skills.

I’ll polish off the dash until it’s free from poo”

At the carwash, yeah

At the carwash, yeah

At the carwash, yyeeaahh

You might think I’m just a regular mom

I give you cookies with a smile

And I’ll sing you a song

But then daddy asks for some sausage

He’s just gone too far

This is when I turn into a

HARD OF HEARING JOY KILLING RAGE RAPTOR

Daddy’s learned his lesson

He knows better than to ask

He can make his own sausage

Or he’ll get a
