I Know What You Ever Say

When my daughter was six years old (two years ago) she sang the first stanza of this to me. It was something she just made up. I recorded it on my phone and I recently wrote the rest of the lyrics. I hope we can do something with this someday. It is an interesting way to talk; as a six year old would but it seems to work...

I know what you ever say
I know what you ever say
If I know
The best one
In my
Favorite
I know you
What you say

I know what you ever say
I know what you ever say
What you say
You always say
What is your
Favorite
I know you
What you say

She knows what you never say
She knows what you never say
She doesn't know
What you say
Like I know
Your favorite
Is my best
What you say

What you say
Is what I know
What you say
She will never know
I know
What she doesn't
I know
Our best
Is what you say

Thanks Mhatter... the funny thing is she was mad whenever I played the little recording of her singing this song. She was embarrassed I guess. Then I told her I finished it and now all of a sudden she's really interested.... She can sing pretty good for an eight year old and the other day she said she wanted to be a singer when she grows up. So I think it's sinking in that writing a song is something good to do. We'll what happens... Someday...
