Sing a Song of… What?

Big Brother fancies himself a bit of a rock star. He was given this guitar/amp/microphone set by his grandparents last Christmas, and has been practicing* ever since. He’s recently started writing his own songs to go with his mad guitar skillz.

Dear <Baby>
I really love you
I love you so much
I really do
I really love to dance with you
But I can’t
Because you’re too little
But that’s okay
Because I like dinosaurs and racing cars
Yeah!

As you can see, his song-writing is almost at the same standard as many world-famous singer/songwriters.

Last week he came up with a gem. If you’ve ever wondered how little boys think… this won’t help at all. But I definitely think there’s something in this for everyone.

Dear Henry the Horse
I really love you
I love you so much
But my farmer’s wife doesn’t like horses
But that’s okay
I locked my wife in the shed I built for the cows
Now you can stay here for a hundred days
Yeah!

* Practicing (v): The act of strumming an out-of-tune toy guitar as hard and fast as possible, with the volume turned up to maximum.
