Thank goodness for the net. That's all I have to say.
Every night at my son's bedtime, I sing to him. Usually it's just a nursery rhyme song or something short and sweet, but over the holiday season, it's been Christmas carols... it's the only time I have a captive audience to perform for, LOL. Anyway, I love singing, and I love carols, so it's all good. Until my son asked me tonight for Little Drummer Boy and I totally drew a blank after the first 4 lines of the song. I just couldn't think of what came next!
So I'm looking at my son, all tucked into bed, idolizing me as I sing, looking to me with a huge smile and big warm eyes, expecting me to finish the song. I cleared my throat and tried it again from the start, thinking it would just magically come to me, but at the same exact spot, I stalled again. The third try was unsuccessful as well. So I made a joke, he laughed, I said hold on... I know what to do, and ran out to retrieve my laptop.
Thank you google, and thank you to the lyric site I found within 10 seconds. Phewph. The bedtime singing ritual was saved!
I actually really like singing that song too. I wonder if he'll ask for it again tomorrow night.
