Little ditty

Ella loves to sing.  She sings or hums all the time.  While she plays. While she takes a bath. While she's on the toilet.  While she's putting on shoes.  While she's coloring.  You get the idea.

She sings what she hears at school, much of which is in Cantonese, so I can't exactly tell you what songs they are.  At Christmas she sang the Chinese version of Deck the Halls.  The only way I knew was when she got to the fa la la la la part.

This morning she's singing this:

Black sheep, Black sheep
Have you anymore?
Yes sir, Yes sir.
Three bags four.
One for the little boy,
One for the name,
One for the little girl who lives down the lame.

that's brilliant! Cushla's version goes something like...
baa baa sheep
have wool
yes sir
one a master
one dame
yay! (cushla applauding herself). Between the two of them they might just manage the whole thing!
