Santa! Was that you?!

Sunshine sings all the time.  You know when people say their kid sings and then when you meet them they don't crack a note the whole 5 hours you're with them?  Yeah, that's not my daughter.  Sunshine sings all the time.  All.  The.  Time.  You are sure to hear her singing in the following places: while she's going to the bathroom, watching tv, putting on shoes, brushing her teeth, coloring and doing crafts, or just randomly doing things and singing while she does it.  Sometimes she sings songs, sometimes she makes up her own little songs.  The made up songs are usually about what she's doing at the moment spoken out loud in sing-song or using the tune of another song..  Nevertheless, she is still singing.

When it comes to singing actual songs, well that's a whole different thing.  She will sing different songs throughout the years.  Christmas in July.  Thanksgiving in February.  Nothing stays where it's supposed to and of course there are songs that are simply fun songs to sing.  The difference in singing a made up song and a song you hear on the radio is this:  One has no words and you can say whatever you want and the other has definite words and it is very obvious when you don't know all the lyrics.  Sunshine is notorious for not knowing the words to songs.  It unknown spot may be hummed or it may be improperly sung.

And now, without further delay, Sunshine's lyrics to "Here Com Santa Claus"

Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm
Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus rain
Down at the farm someone farted
not just anything
Down at the farm
Du du du du du
Down at the farm
du du  du du
Santa Claus comes tonight.

I have no clue where she got this from.  Hubby and I heard her at the same time and asked her where she heard that and she said that she heard it on the radio when all the Christmas songs were on.  I asked if someone taught her the words or if that's what she thought they were.  She said that's what they were.

If you are utterly confused on what the real lyrics are, here is one verse (I think the one she thought she was singing "Here Comes Santa Claus":

Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
Right down Santa Claus lane,
He doesn't care if you're rich or poor
He loves you just the same
Santa knows we're all God's children
and that makes everything right
So fill your hearts with Christmas cheer
Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.

I know when I think of Christmas cheer, God's children, and love I always think of farting.  Lots of farting.



  1. Just wait until someone teaches her the "Jingle Bells, Batman Smells" classic!

  2. Aahhh yes! Well at least I can say she has been exposed to classics.
