Isn’t it great to listen to little kids sing out loud (well I know they don’t always hit the note, but who does…)? I love it. They seem so happy.
But there is something slightly weird or wrong listening to a group of 5-8 year old girls leave the dance studio and singing:
“It’s going down, I’m yelling timber. You better move, you better dance…”
“She’s up all night to the sun, I’m up all night to get some. She’s up all night for good fun, I’m up all night to get lucky.”
“Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby. Let me know girl. I’m gonna show you how to do it…”
I mean: Seriously?
Dear Dance Instructors out there: I totally understand that songs like that might be catchy. But keep in mind that your little students might leave your studio singing the lyrics, which are for sure not appropriate for this age group, out loud.
And if it is not just for the fact that it is highly inappropriate, just bare in mind, that there might be creeps out there, who could find themselves turned on by a 5,6,7 or 8 year old singing “I’m gonna show you how to whistle, baby…”
Just a thought…
