Colin's version of The Sound of Music

I began singing today, and soon, the boys began singing along with me. We love The Sound of Music around here.

After several times through the song, I dropped out.

Colin, however, sang right on.

His version was so funny that I had to grab a pen.

"Do, a Deer" as sung by Colin (with incorrect words italicized by yours truly):

"Doe--a deer, a feel man deer

Rain--a drop of falling suuuuuuuuun

Me--a name I call my cell

Far--a long off way to ruuuuuuuuun

Sew--a needle pulling bread

La--a no to follow sooooooooooooooo

Ti--a drink from moldy bread

That will bring us up to doe doe doe doe doe...."

I love it. And when it's not exactly right, I love it all the more....

so cute! It is always funny to see what they "hear" when they listen to a song. We've had a few "discussions" over words, because they just knew I was wrong:):)

That's cute, Devin! :) Our current favs are Chitty, Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Poppins, or as Aaron says, "Chim Chimmery." Love these boys!!!

You mean those AREN'T the words? Shoot.


One of my favorite song lyric mess-ups came from Bug when she was probably about 6 - Singing the B-I-B-L-E..."I stand around on the word of God..."

We just watched the Sound of Music together for the first time in a loooong time Friday night.

Mostly because my daughter is learning the Doe a deer song in music class.

I am sure we will be singing it quite a bit, and I will be listening for "creative" versions :)
