Luke and Grandpa Warren

I have often remarked how much Luke is like his Grandpa Warren. I mean, physically, the two of them are very similar with similar facial shapes and small mouths. But Luke also does very well in school and excels in athletics. Both come to him without even trying. (Very Warren-like.)

Well, let the trend continue: I've noticed that when Luke sings a song he likes, he doesn't let not knowing the words deter him. Take for instance, Luke's rendition of La Bamba. Here are the proper words to that little song:

Para bailar La Bamba
Se necessita una poca de gracia
Una poca de gracia
Para mi, para ti, ay arriba, ay arriba
Ay, arriba arriba
Por ti sere
Now, it doesn't matter what those words mean, because here are Luke's words:
La La La La La Bamba
Magnifico-oh
Oh Oh Oh La Bamba...
He's perfectly in tune, but hopelessly lost on the lyrics! Just like his Grandpa!

Singing the right words is no fun! You have to spice them up. :)

LOL! Scott, Since Luke is a natural composer, he has the ability to change the words of a song and make it better! I did the same when I was learning English and I still do.
"Sooome wheeeree over the rainbooow, the skies are blue, aaaaaand it has to do with the blue skies and that's why I sing this song"-

Sarah Palin-like "It all has to do JOB CREATION" ;-)
