Mom approved song lyrics

We Carroll’s love music.  It’s in our blood.

My kids have this uncanny knack for loving songs with questionable lyrics that drive mom nuts!

Here are three songs that need a mom’s editing touch (Mom approved changes to the lyrics are in bold.  You’re welcome!).

Uptown Funk

I love this song too!  I can’t sit still when it’s on.  But there is no need for my precious babies to hear a choice phrase in the middle of the chorus.  So here’s the way I will be forever singing this catchy tune!

I’m too hot (hot hot)  (hot dog also works nicely here!) 🙂
Called a police and a fireman
I’m too hot (hot hot)
Make a dragon wanna retire man
I’m too hot (hot hot)
Say my name you know who I am
I’m too hot (hot hot)
Am I bad ’bout that money, break it down

See what I did there?  It’s now nice for us all to sing and listen to!  You’re welcome, Bruno Mars! 🙂

Shut Up and Dance

Again, another fun song.  Let’s see what mom can do with this one!

Oh don’t you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me.
I said your holding back,
She said get up and dance with me!
This woman is my destiny
She said oh oh oh
Get up and dance with me

So much better!  Now get up and dance!!

The Weekend

My 4-year-old daughter loves this song.  Too bad the radio station has to get changed for this one (off the Disney Radio channel!).

Oh yeah it’s the weekend,
Hands up for the weekend!
Oh yeah it’s the weekend,
Hands up for the weekend!

Ahh!  Much better!  I can sleep well tonight knowing that you all have my edited, mom approved lyrics!

So, now.  What other lyrics do we moms need to change? 🙂
