With his baby sunglasses on strapped into his car seat and looking out of the window, my son at two used to sing whatever struck his fancy. We usually stuck with the ABC song as it was familiar and easy. Once, while headed home out of nowhere he started belting out "Elephants, I like elephants....I like when they swing through trees..." My wife and I looked at each other and started laughing.
"Elephants don't swing through trees buddy" I said, to which he replied "So, what am I thinking of?"
I raised my eyebrow and said "Those are monkeys" and he replied "Right, right, right...mon-keeeeys. I like mon-keeeeys...I like when they swim in the ocean"
"Monkeys don't swim in the ocean" I said and he said "No? What am I thinking of?"
We had no idea what he was talking about but thought that we had a genius on our hands. How did he come up with such an elaborate way to talk about animals? Enter the genius of Eric Herman and what we would learn was called The Elephant Song. Soon, we were listening to such great songs as Dance Like an Animal and Crazy Over Vegetables.
We rock his tunes out in our minivan and can't help tapping our feet or singing out loud to the car next to us. Take that deep bass vibrating car!
