Recently I heard the sweetest song on KIDS XM radio. Usually I try to tune out the kids' music and hope that the most annoying tunes do not get stuck in my head. This one, however, caught my attention because the DJ was interviewing the artist, Scribble Jim. Scribble Jim is one of my kids' favorite artists, mostly because he wrote a VERY catchy song about chocolate milk! Anyway, it turns out he was inspired by that classic children's board game LIFE to write a sweet little love song. Apparently dozens of couples already have actually had this song played at their weddings! Here are the lyrics:
"The Song of Life" - by James Dague, sung by Scribble Jim
Every time that I play LIFE
I chose you to be my wife
We ride around in a plastic car
Tiny pegs are all we are
It doesn't matter what job I find
You're always there, you're still my bride
Sometimes I teach, sometimes I write
A doctor, a lawyer, it's all allright
"Cause I, love you
And I, love LIFE.
We'll buy a house and have some kids
No more than four or they won't fit
Our girls are pink, the boys are blue
Our little girl looks just like you.
We might be broke or might be rolling in dough
Where this road leads, I don't know
It's all a part of playing the game
I wouldn't have it any other way
'Cause I, love you
And I love LIFE
And on the day of reckoning
I'll spin the wheel, bet everything,
it doesn't matter if I win or lose,
I always win when I'm with you
'Cause I love you
And I love life.
My favorite line is "No more than four or they won't fit" - such a cute sentiment!
Anyway, I've got the song in my head and have been thinking of the crazy four years that my man and I have been married. So far it HAS been a life to love, and I am so blessed to be sharing it with a guy that I absolutely adore.
Hope you're loving life today.
