Composing her own lyrics

Little J loves to sing that she even hum her favourite songs in the car or anyplace she feels like it. She loves it when someone asked her to sing. She will sing to requests! *laugh* When she learns new songs in school she would love to show off to me by singing or humming the lyrics but most of the time I don’t get them….Lol! Her school has their own songs so I don’t really know what she is singing.

Big J bought her a nursery rhyme vcd that come with lyric book back in last year. We never played it before till last month. Actually I found it in one of her toy baskets while doing some cleaning in the room. So, every night since then, we played her the vcd comprising of 16 famous nursery rhyme like Old McDonald Had A Farm, London Bridge is Falling Down, Auld Lang Syne etc. She loves the vcd so much that she must listen to it at least once every night. Lol! She knew most of the lyrics by now and will sing along too. Sometimes she will ask me to duet with her, i.e. she sings one line, I sing the other line and so forth. But once a while, she will forbid me to sing or correct her lyrics or pronunciation. Sometime I cannot stand her changing the lyric of a song, such as following:

Song from Baa Baa Black Sheep

Baa Baa Black Sheep, Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
3 bags full
One for the master, and one for the dame,
And one for the little boy that cried in the lane

(original song said "And none for the little boy that cried in the lane". I guess Little J pity the boy and gave 1 bag to him.)

Song from Ten Little Indian Boys

One little two little three little fingers,
Four little five little six little fingers,
Seven little eight little nine little fingers,
Ten little fingers have I
