In 1979 friend of mine was on a family holiday when her older (teenage) sisters spotted Rod Stewart sunning himself beside the pool in a tiny wee pair of leopard print bathers...

After much prompting they sent her (small and cute 5 year old see?) over to ask him for an autograph....

Noooooo.. bad call

She decided to subject him to a full hip wiggling rendition of "If ya want my body and do you think I'm sexy...." etc etc..

LOL at this thread.

My friend's 8yo was singing Lady Gaga,... something about a disco stick.


My 5 year old was singing this just this morning as my 16yr old was brushing her hair. The teen was lLooking at me with a mix of horror and laughter as miss 5 sang "I wanna take a ride on your disco stick"

Mine like to sing "The only thing that looks good on me is you".  My 6 year old said "Mum it's about fashion !"

Well it does mention Armani suits so I guess technically that's correct.....

My kids listen to metal. Even if the lyrics are bad, you can't tell 99% of the time wink.gif


So do mine, but they know the lyrics, and sing them, too.  Doesn't matter so much now they're teen, but DS1 was a Linkin Park fan at age 6  unsure.gif  Not that Linkin Park's language is anything by comparison to many metal bands.

My 8 year old loves Katy Perry too - she asked me what a 'ménage a trois' was - I told her its a type of drink!
She was also telling her Dad off about something (as 8 year old girls do) and she said 'Well Dad, that's what you get for waking up in Vegas'!!

Oops

OMG that is hilarious original.gif Just after I wrote this thread, DD and I went out for the day and I had a thought while I was gone that I shouldnt have written this, that I would come back to 10 pages telling me how bad I was from the PC brigade, like how dare I let DD even come close to Katy Perry.

Thank you universe for being kind. There are some funny posts in here, thanks for the laughs original.gif

It roughly translates from french to ""party" of three" to put it tastefully.

That's what happens when young uns are exposed to Bryan Adams.

Luckily  once I showed my kids only the Elmo version of "I'm sexy and I know it" they promptly forgot the real one.

I am currently having issues with Katy Perry too.

Our finest moment was that the first line that DS remembered from the Lazy Song was the bit about "gonna have some good sex" or something like that.

Then another song plays THIS and I have my 2yr old son singing 'weed... funnnnn... and when I turn it down he says MUM! UP! in a very cranky voice, almost growling at me lol.
