It's just a bit demoralizing...

This summer, I came across the song "O Sifuni Mungu" online that was being sung by the African Children's Choir. It was so fun! I had sung the song in choir several years ago, but it was amazing how fast all the words (in Swahili) came back to me.

I've been singing it around the house since then. Now, my 5-year-old is singing along... Yikes.

He's been asking me what the words meant, and I wasn't 100% sure that I had it right, so I decided to look them up today. In the process of searching, I came across this video.




I figured he'd like seeing it. It wasn't so bad until he asked me, "Is one of those people you?"

Excuse me for a moment while I go die.

  4. Ah! First Call! One of my favorite groups back in the day. I had the album that this was on, in cassette.... LOL ...before the days of CD's.

    I love this song as well.
