Don't Forget the Lyrics :)

My problem is never forgetting the lyrics. It is, however, getting the lyrics very wrong. I know the "words" to tons of songs and they stay with me forever. As a child, I learned nearly all 80s songs lyrics, especially the "hair" bands! I'm sure you've all experienced it. You're singing along with a song you like and someone you're with looks at you and says "What words did you just sing?" Instantly, you know. You have been a victim of similar, but ridiculous, sounding words that seem to belong, in your mind at least. For example, the song "Here I Go Again" by Whitesnake. The correct words: "Like a drifter, I was born to walk alone" Heather's words: "Like a twister, I was born to walk along". Yeah, my loving husband got a kick out of that one. Well, my dear sweet Blaine has the same problem. Last week I was working in the kitchen with my under cabinet radio on Christian radio. Blaine was playing on the floor, singing along. The song "Amazing Grace, My Chains Are Gone" by Chris Tomlin came on. This is one of Blaine's favorites. He put his little head back and was singing as loud as he possibly could. It was an awesome moment: watching my little man use his voice to praise the Lord. Then, it happened. The correct words: "My God, My Savior has ransomed me" Blaine's version: "My God, My Savior made some tea"! He got it honestly!
