Parent Bloggers: A #BML16 musical parody

Single_Ladies_(Put_a_Ring_on_It)_screenshot

We’re just a week away from the UK’s biggest parent blogging conference, #BML16 (formerly BritMums Live). And to celebrate the event, I’ve recorded another parody song for your listening (dis)pleasure.

To be fair, anything more complex than Hickory Dickory Dock is beyond my limited vocal range – you have been warned! – but I’m still not entirely sure what possessed me to tackle Beyonce’s Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It).

It’s not because I have the moves, that’s for sure. And it’s definitely not because my voice is easily mistaken for Mrs Z’s. (It doesn’t say that on her marriage certificate, does it?)

I mean, it took me 11 goes just to get my ‘wuh uh ohs’ right. I may not be able to sing but I do take my craft seriously. Okay, no I don’t. I’d just drunk a lot of Pimm’s that night.

Anyhow, do feel free to sing along. But you might not want to do it in public.

And no amount of money or alcohol will persuade me to do a karaoke performance of this at the bar next weekend. But do feel free to buy me drinks anyway …
