Description
I had to write a song about my favorite play pal, Vivian. She’s definitely one of the coolest kids I know, and it’s always an immense joy to hang out with her! Not only is she a snappy dresser, but she’s got lots of toys, and is always coming up with exciting things to do. I’ve learned a lot from her. I think my vocabulary has even increased. Anyway, here’s Vivian, as seen and heard (and loved) by her grandpa, Papa Ho Ho Hat.

Lyrics
Vivian

Vivian puts a flower in her hair
It might be poison ivy, but she don’t care
She’s itchin’ to get hungry,
And she’s itchin’ to get mad,
So she might as well put poison ivy there!

Vivian holds a pencil, long and round,
And she hits on everything just to make a sound
She’s hittin’ on the table,
And she’s hittin’ on the shelf,
And she’ll keep on hittin’ till she puts it down

Vivian has a smile under her nose,
And it gets bigger when you touch her toes
But sometimes it gets upside down,
And you have to ask, “Is that a frown?”
But she don’t care ‘bout things that she don’t know!

She likes to have you sit with her
And have a cup of tea
And anything you say to her,
She always will agree
And if you make a mess of things,
She’ll clean it up for free
“cause you’re her babeee….babeeee!

Vivian’s got a hold on doggie’s ear
She simply wants to pull that doggie near
There’s important things she’s learned today
And she has a whole lot to say,
So listen, doggie, you’re sure to want to hear!

Glad to create some smiles and good feelings. "Go gah" is a new word I picked up from the Viv; it means dog. Thanks for the comments. T

All play!
That's all I do when I go to Vivian's house. The older I get, the younger I get.

Ton of fun it was!
Glad you tuned in Sig. Hope you picked up some of my hot guitar licks. Vivian loves music, and has a variety of instruments in her toy box. I see a future Macjammer here! Thanks for the comments. T

Extra kudos...
Not only a cool, country flavored song - but a tune about your granddaughter. That kicks the rating way up. Good for you, Terry. Love this bright and love-filled song...

Aw shucks :-)
Lovely work Terry.

Really nice song beautifully done.

I love the way you've worked her own voice into the song.

Too cool!

Cheers

The Viv!
This is really a recording of Vivian. I just thought she needed some background music. I love playing with this little kid, and she seems to like me too. She handles two pencils now and is really starting to boogie! Thanks for the listen, Dick, and for the comments. T

This is so great!
I love hearing her laughter and other contributions to the song. You're in fine voice and the production perks along so well. Are you playing both guitar parts?

Glad you tuned in, Kevin, and thanks for the kind words. I had lots of laughter song bites to choose from. This little girl's life is a constant parade! Yep that me on both guitars. I got that weird sound from my Pandora's Box. It seemed to blend in with the motif pretty well.

And her Baaah (sheep) is in there too! As I was making this, I thought about that song you did with Baily. Collaborating with these little people is so much fun! I can't remember if you posted that, but you should again. I can't seem to find my copy. This is the first one I've done all by myself in quite a while. I still prefer working with the vast resource of talent here at Macjams. (check out that latest thing I sent you). Peace, Brother. Terry

A labour of love for sure, Terry. Can't help but put a smile on your face. Really like the arrangement you put together. Some quality musicianship on display, too. Great fun. Thanks, Peter.

She keeps me smiling!
Glad you enjoyed it, Peter. Struggled a bit with the instruments; they're not as cooperative as they used to be. Thanks for listening.

Love it
You nailed it how grandkids act. They are full of energy and once you smile, they'll keep banging on that table. I love Vivian's sound effects and your lyrics, and your vocals. And the ending.... Priceless.

My Viv!
Thanks, papag. I hope her kids will one day hear this. Better yet, that she writes and sings a song about them. Songs are like photographs; they capture their own type of image!
