Today at Be Who You Are headquarters, we’re beginning to record and arrange one of the last tracks on the album called “Your Toys Could Be Better.” It’s a letter to a big movie and toy company from a little girl who is frustrated with the lack of imagination and fun in their toys. She’s got some ideas of her own.
It’s going to be sung by a little girl! We hope. We have Violet in mind, and she has said yes! So stay tuned to find out how it goes….
But meanwhile this video is Paula laying down a rough version of the song. Here’s a sneak peek at the lyrics if you want to sing along : )
I love all your movies
The princess girls are smart
They do all kinds of real cool stuff
And they have the biggest hearts
I don’t want to complain now
But I guess I kind of am
The toys you make just don’t make sense
For me and my sister Sam
Cuz they do a lot of things in the movies you see
But I get to the store and there’s nothing for me
Because my play time’s bigger than clothes and tea
And dishes and dolls and baby makes three
Because your toys could be better
I’m writing you a letter!
