Blow dry ballads

Microphone

My kids love to sing. In the car, in the bath, and for some reason, when they sit to have their hair dried.

I will often catch my Little Bird singing songs and I sometimes wonder where she heard them from. I’m not referring to the kiddie songs, but the pop songs that she hears.

The daycare she went to used to play the Biebs, so she loved to sing Baby and even liked to watch the video. Then we saw Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted and she loved hearing Firework by Katy Perry. I would often hear her singing it.

Her best work is done under the dryer. When she sits down after a bath, and we turn on that blow dryer, she bursts out into song. I’m not sure if her way of passing the time, or if she can hear herself better, but I smile every time.

We’ve heard many songs, from the Alphabet to The Wanted’s Chasing the Sun (from the Ice Age 4: Continental Drift soundtrack). The other day, we heard a new one. S.O.S. (Rescue Me) from Rihanna. I stopped and listened for minute before realizing what she was singing. And I wondered where she heard it from. When I asked her, she told me from the Chipmunks movie. And then I remembered, we had just bought them Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked and she had watched it about four times in two days, so it was no wonder she already knew the words!

To be clear, my Little Bird only knows some of the words, and thinks it relates to Jeannette being saved from a treasure-hungry girl on some island in the middle of nowhere, as she hopes for Simon to save her!

So in honour of the Blow dry ballads, here is my Little Bird’s newest favourite song.

Happy Monday!

S.O.S. (Rescue Me)

by: Rihanna

[Intro]
Lalala lalala la la lala la Ohhh
You know… I never felt like this before
Lalala lalala la la lala la Ohhh
Feels like.. so real

[Verse 1]
I’m obsessive when just one thought of you comes up
I’m aggressive just one thought of closing up
You got me stressing, incessantly pressing the issue
‘Cause every moment gone you know I miss you
I’m the question and you’re of course the answer
Just hold me close boy ’cause I’m your tiny dancer
You make me shaken up, never mistaken
But I can’t control myself, got me calling out for help

[Chorus:]
S.O.S. please someone help me.
It’s not healthy… for me to feel this way
Y.O.U. are making this hard,
I can’t take it, see it don’t feel right
S.O.S. please someone help me
It’s not healthy… for me to feel this way
Y.O.U. are making this hard
You got me tossin’ and turnin’ and can’t sleep at night

[Bridge:]
This time please someone come and rescue me
‘Cause you on my mind it’s got me losing it
I’m lost, you got me lookin’ for the rest of me
Love is testing me but still I’m losing it
This time please someone come and rescue me
‘Cause you on my mind, it’s got me losing it
I’m lost, you got me looking for the rest of me,
Got the best of me, so now I’m losing it

[Verse 2]
Just your presence and I second guess my sanity
Yes it’s a lesson, it’s unfair, you stole my vanity
My tummy’s up in knots so when I see you I get so hot
My common sense is out the door, can’t seem to find the lock
Take on me (uh huh) you know inside you feel it right

Take me on I’m put desire up in your arms tonight
I’m out with you, you got me head over heels
Boy you keep me hanging on the way you make me feel

[Chorus:]
S.O.S. please someone help me.
It’s not healthy… for me to feel this way
Y.O.U. are making (Y.O.U.) this hard,
You got me tossin’ and turnin’ and can’t sleep at night

[Bridge:]
This time please someone come and rescue me
‘Cause you on my mind, it’s got me losing it (‘Cause you on my mind)
I’m lost, you got me lookin’ for the rest of me
Love is testing me but still I’m losing it
This time please someone come and rescue me (someone come and rescue me)
‘Cause you on my mind got me losing it
I’m lost, you got me looking for the rest of me,
Got the best of me, so now I’m losing it

Boy, you know you got me feeling open
And boy, your loves enough with words unspoken
I said boy I’m telling you, you got me open
I don’t know what to do it’s true
I’m going crazy over you,
I’m begging

[Chorus:]
S.O.S. please somebody help me.
It’s not healthy… for me to feel this way
Y.O.U. are making this hard (are you making this hard for me, baby?),
You got me tossin’ and turnin’ and can’t sleep at night

[Bridge:]
This time please someone come and rescue me (someone rescue me)
‘Cause you on my mind, it’s got me losing it
I’m lost, you got me lookin’ for the rest of me
Love is testing me but still I’m losing it
This time please someone come and rescue me
‘Cause you on my mind got me losing it (’cause any time)
I’m lost you, got me looking for the rest of me,
Got the best of me (best of me), I’m losing it

[Outro]
Lala lala lala lala Ohhh
Ohh ohh lala lala lala lala
Oh oh
