I need to expand my lexicon

Charlotte has started to have nightmares on and off.  Perfectly normal, and not something I'm worried about.  But when she has a really bad night like she is tonight, I'll go up and hold/rock her.  It's more for me than for her, honestly.  But I've discovered tonight that I need to learn a few more songs.  I've got "Personal Penguin" down cold because it's one of her favorite books.  After that she gets "A Monster's Lullaby," which is actually sweet and quite appropriate.  But after that I tend to segue into various things I've learned in the SCA and assorted Tom Lehrer.  If I send her off to school singing "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park," there's gonna be some 'splainin' to do...

I know a *ton* of songs: "Rainbow Connection" is a good one, "The Impossible Dream" (watch that last high note), and "The Ants go Marching" ("The ants go marching one by one, hurrah! Hurrah!"). You can google song lyrics with ease. In fact, this website has a bajillion songs with MIDI files so you know how the song goes:


Unfortunately, both my children tell me to stop singing when I try to. ',:^/ I'm glad Charlotte is a more receptive audience.

She's two. I'm not sure she knows HOW to ask mommy not to sing yet. :-)
