I made a list of words and phrases that I think my baby Alex can recognize, and turned it into a cute song with the help of TV's Kyle (and borrowing a tune from Christmas song "I Saw Three Ships", which sounded to me like it needed to be turned into a children's song). Cameos from Josh Rasey, the great Luke Ski (aka "Uncle Luke") and my son who turns 1 year old on March 1st, Alex Rasey. Oh, and today (February 22nd) is my birthday, so you can always leave a happy birthday comment here if you like! ;)


“Song for Baby Alex” -- by Carrie Dahlby 2013
Instrumental (and additional vocals) by Kyle Carrozza

Spoken intro (over a couple measures of instrumental): “I wrote the following song using only words and phrases my baby can understand.
So, if you don’t ‘get’ it, you’re not as smart as a one-year-old!”

Paci sneeze your turtle light,
Watermelon book byebye.
Curtains, jammies, clap your hands.
I’mgonnagetchyou yogurt dance!

Kermit colors, music songs,
Ball your smiiiile and more AGOG!
Glasses burp the Mozart cube,
Milkies come from Mama’s cup!

There ain’t no kitty cats to ask me why
I love you more than the sun and the moon and the stars and the sky

(song interjection “Banana” to the tune of “Bonanza”, with Josh)

Daddy’s home in shake shake shake,
Buffy, Willow, blocks and cake.
Diaper changing table food,
Star Wars poster, little dude!

Uncle Luke your ladybugs
Every spoon my rattle hugs.
Can you ask politely please?
On the potty pee pee pee!

There ain’t no ceiling fans to ask me why
I love you more than the sun and the moon and the stars and the sky

Kyle: Xylophone solo! Take it, President Baby!

(Carrie plays Fisher-Price Xylophone solo)

(song interjection “Puffs! Sing the praises of Puffs!” to the tune of “Pants!” from MST3K)

Thank you for your gentle toes,
No no no no no no no!
Socks I tree your car’s Fozzie,
Poo poo diaper lblblblblblblblblblb.

Kisses meow your meatball shoes,
Doggie, duckie, berry, goose.
You’re the joy that my life lacked,
Toothbrush quacks and Baby Snacks!

There ain’t no Christmas trees to ask me why
I love you more than the sun and the moon and the stars and the sky

Carrie:(over instrumental outro) I love you,
Alex. No, be gentle to the kitty... no, don’t pull
her tail... no, don’t touch the cd player....
water at the table is for drinking not for playing!...
no, we don’t play on the toilet seat!...
No, honey, you can’t have Daddy’s coffee....
All right, all right... as long as it’s iced.
