I visited family this past weekend. I encouraged two grand-nieces and a grand-nephew to help me write a song. The youngest immediately said "Come to the Stars". I asked; "With who?" and the details of the monkey were born. In the end they told me come to the stars with us and a blue monkey with purple polka dots and orange stripes. We swing on the stars to get to different planets. Oh and the monkey has seven toes and giant ears.
I love collaborating with children! Mariah is their older sister that was off babysitting so we added her into verse two.
Come to the stars with a happy monkey
Come to the stars a new planet to see
Come to the stars we’ll swing so freely
With Taryn, Trace, Gretel, and Grand Aunt Darci
Our happy monkey will lead the way
He’s blue with orange stripes and purple polka dots
He has seven toes to swing with his feet
And giant ears that sure hear lots
The five of us go swinging away
Exploring the planets that round us do shine
Mariah will join us later to swing
I’m glad they’re all friends of mine
