Moo Clown

Henry loves music.  Specifically, songs that come out of my mouth.  I once spent an hour on the C train singing various songs, including The Itsy Bitsy Spider, On Top of Spaghetti, and the Mockingbird Song among others, much to the amusement-slash-annoyance of my fellow riders.

I am, for all intents and purposes, Henry's personal clown.  I sing, dance, make faces and sounds and happily humiliate myself all day long for his benefit.  

I even developed this little gem, with apologies to Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell, apparently the credited songwriters of "You Are My Sunshine."  Henry loves this one.  I sing it in all kinds of public places.

You are my sweet pea
My little sweet pea
You make me happy
When skies are gray
You'll never know, dear
How much I love you
Please don't take my sweet pea away

I am your moo cow
Your personal moo cow
I make you happy
All night and day
You'll never know, dear
How much I love you
I won't take your moo cow away

You are my sweet pea
The sweetest sweet pea
The sweetest sweet pea
That ever could be
You are my sweet pea
My sweetest sweet pea
Please don't take my sweet pea from me
