Carter's Version of Book of Mormon Stories

This one is you Deanna! (She's the song leader for the children at our church.)

Today Carter was walking around singing the popular kid's song from our chruch, "Book of Mormom Stories". For those of you who don't know the words, the ending of it goes, "Given this land, if they lived, righteously." On the "righteously" part the kids always do a little hand action where they fold each arm and nod their head on each syllable of the word.

Well Carter was singing away and he says while folding his arms, "Right A Sleep!" and then tucks his head down inside his arms. It was hilarious! I love to hear all the little mixed up words the kids think the songs are saying.

Funny! Ethan use to think the second verse of "I am a Child of God" where it says "and so my needs are great" said "and so my knees are gray". He always wondered why you had to have gray knees to be a child of God :)! I also remember thinking that the song "In the Leafy Treetops" said "the flowers are naughty" (instead of nodding!).

I used to thing "Good Thing" by Fine Young Cannibals said, "Dirt bag." Doot-doobie-doot-DIRT BAG! Makes for a catchy song don't ya think?

Well, that would certainly make sense when you think of the hand actions. Too funny!

That is hilarous! Thanks for sharing! I used to think in "Love one another" it said "by this shelmennow" What's a shelmennow? (Shall Men Know) and never figured it out untill I was like 15 or so...Funny how we think words are different!
