Sing, sing a song

I know some of you have been graced with the sound of my singing.  It is angelic, no, demonic.  Well, I'm no recording artist.

Anyway, I have a tendency to make up songs.  I'll sing to our dog, Jarvis, about what we're doing.  "We are going to go for a walk and you are going to pee and poop and behave yourself then we'll come home and you can have a treat and some water and a nap or we'll play or maybe a bath..."

But wait, sometimes the songs aren't just me getting my sing-song creations on.  There are times when I change the words to known songs.  These can be even BETTER!!! Here are a couple I've come up with:

"I know you have a little ketchup in you yet.  I know you have a tablespoon left." Which I sing to the tune of Kate Bush's "This Woman's Work."  I know, I know, I should be ashamed of myself.

Here's another GREAT one:

"Acrobat Reader" in place of "Paperback Writer" by The Beatles

I haven't done anything full-length.  You're letting out a great, big sigh of relief, I'm sure.  It's all in fun and part of embracing my inner-goofball.  I learned it from a song on "Sesame Street."

  1. I can hear Patton Oswalt in that first part. ...or at least hear him singing it in his stand up.
