Future Songwriter?

For some reason today, CJ began singing "The First Noel". Ruthi wanted to join in, be she was singing, "Oh-Well" instead of Noel.

Then CJ got crazy and started making up a song to the tune, but using oh well. He went to his room, and I could hear him playing the notes over and over on his keyboard, pausing every so often. I knew he was stopping to write the words down.

He is a 13 year old boy. A 13 year old boy who doesn't give too much thought to girls yet.

If a 13 year old boy is not thinking about girls when writing a song, what else is left? Bodily functions of course!

Oh dear.

So, if you don't want to think of bodily functions the next time you hear "The First Noel", you may want to stop reading here.

If however, you want a peek into a 13 year old boy's mind, then continue on.

Here is his "song".

Oh well, oh well
I just farted real loud
My Mother did say to
excuse my poor self.

Oh well, I said oh well
I did not really care
It wasn't real bad
It just stunk everywhere.

Oh well, How I was glad
I was not on a date
I would poison the food
And ruin the new cake.

Excuse me, excuse me
I am sorry I blew
It was so hard not to
And just came right through.

Future in song writing? Not likely.

If you have a son (or sons), you understand. If you don't - you now have a taste of what I deal with daily.

Oh yes. This is the life.

    Wow, I am so proud of my son. I have been struggling to help him find his calling. I now know, I should help him pursue his songwriting abilities.

    Proud Father.

  4. Oh, how funny! No boys here but at times my girls will come up with some odd things. I always tease our youngest that she is our boy. And as youth pastors we're around enough boys for me to roll my eyes and say "oh, thank you Lord for my girls".

  5. What a glimpse into "boy world"! I am not sure I am ready!

  6. They are quite a unique species, aren't they?
