Lyrics By Steinberg & Kelly

Christmas Eve, Orlando, my sister's house...

Six Year-old Niece: Uncle Joe, let's play singalong!

Uncle Joe: Oh, you have a karaoke machine! Neat!

The machine, with its large colorful buttons, is clearly made for a child. My niece turns it on and grabs the microphone. The lyrics of the first song begin to scroll up the small screen.

I made it through the wilderness
Somehow I made it through
Didn't know how lost I was
Until I found you...

Uncle Joe (panicked): Oh, I think I hear your mom calling us. Let's go back downstairs!

I know she doesn't understand the lyrics. But still. At least I know that for a six year-old, she has excellent reading skills.
