Ava has knack for writing songs that contain snippets of stolen lyrics from other songs. Here is the song she sang to me this morning when she came in to snuggle.
“I first set my eyes on the sweet virgin mama.
Through the streets wide and narrow on the silent night
Lift your arms up and come to thee
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow you in a one horse open sleigh.”
Beautiful, isn’t it? Sounds even better lying down with a three-year-old combing her fingers through your hair.
The first person to name the most songs in this lullaby jumble wins a prize. What prize? Well, it’s coming out of the Great Purge, more on that tomorrow.
I will leave the comments open until Sunday at midnight and announce the winner on Monday! Happy guessing.
