Am I the only one who does this? When it comes to Carols at Christmas, typically I sing the first line loudly because I like the song, but I quickly realize that I don’t know all the words. I have two options.
- Sing the song with my own made up lyrics
- Sing the first line and realizing that I don’t know the words, I try to cover my “faux pas” by changing to soft hum.
TRUE STORY: I was at my child’s Christmas Concert and there came a time when we were all supposed to sing a carol – We Three Kings.
Here is what I wanted to sing…
We Three Kings of Orient are,
Smoking on a rubber cigar
It was loaded, it exploded…
Here is what I actually did…
We Three Kings of Orient are, (very loudly I might ad)
Hmmm Hmmm Hmm (breath) hum hum hum hum hummmmmm
(breath) Hmmm hm hmmm hm hmmmm hm hmmmmmmmm (lips move slightly)
(breath) Hm hm hm hmmmm, hm hmmmmmmm (finish with mouth wide open in the appearance of a strong finish)
