Music Monday: Dynamite song...

Here is my take on one of our kids' favorite songs, which they sing around the house quite often...

On the left are the real lyrics, on the right are my slant on what they mean to me as I train! Since we have potty training our youngest daughter, Bethany for almost a year, that is what they relate to for me... silly, I know...




Dynamite Lyrics (version by Mike Tompkins, originally done by Taio Cruz)

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes (Is this girl gonna figure out this process?)
Saying AYO!
Gotta let go!  (Just let it go, baby girl, let the pee out!)
I wanna celebrate and live my life  (without changing diapers 3-4 times a day forever!)
Saying AYO!
Baby, let's go! (Go, baby girl, go!)

I came to dance, dance, dance, dance (because she's done with diapers!)
I hit the floor   (to change her again!)
'Cause that's my, plans, plans, plans, plans   (that's the problem, it's MY plans!)
I'm wearing all my favorite   (and she peed through her diaper on them again!)
Brands, brands, brands, brands   (Hanes, Gerber, Dora panties)
Give me space for both my hands, hands, hands, hands  (no hands in the potty!)
Ye, ye 
Cause it goes on and on and on    (the diapers and the changing...)
And it goes on and on and on   (again and again and again!)

Yeah! 

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes   (in frustration!)
Saying AYO!
Gotta let go!  (Just let the pee out, relax, girlie!)
I wanna celebrate and live my life (sans diapers)
Saying AYO!
Baby, let's go!   (go without diapers, please!)

'Cause we gon' rock this club   (the potty club!)
We gon' go all night   (with no diaper, but maybe a pull-up!)
We gon' light it up   (if our potty had lights when you peed...)
Like it's dynamite!  (sometimes there's an explosion in there...)
'Cause I told you once   (please try to go...)
Now I told you twice (try again please!)
We gon' light it up   (turn the bathroom light on!)
Like it's dynamite!   (it's bright sometimes!)

I came to move, move, move, move   (hurry, run!)
Get out the way me and my crew, crew, crew, crew  (or brood going into the bathroom!)
I'm in the club so I'm gonna do, do, do, do   (I know how to go, watch Mommy!)
Just whatever I came here to do, do, do, do   (on the potty!)

Yea, yea

Cause it goes on and on and on  (this potty train...)
And it goes on and on and on    (goes on forever, well, seems like it!)

Yeah!

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes (I'm getting desperate)
Saying AYO!     (I'll try nearly anything!)
Gotta let go!    (relax, sit down and try!)
I wanna celebrate and live my life   (without buying diapers!)
Saying AYO!
Baby, let's go!   (just GO!)

'Cause we gon' rock this club    (come join the potty club, baby!)

We gon' go all night   (without a diaper!)
We gon' light it up   (turn the light off when you're done!)
Like it's dynamite!
'Cause I told you once   (turn it off!)
Now I told you twice     (please!)
We gon' light it up  (You can turn on the light this time!)
Like it's dynamite!     (You're dy-no-MITE, girly!)

I'm gonna take it all like,   (all the pee out...)
I'm gonna be the last one standing,   (I'll stand outside the stall and wait for you...)
I'm alone and all I        (alone in the potty? Can that happen?)
I'm gonna be the last one landing  (landing your bottom on the seat!)
'Cause I, I, I Believe it    (I know you can do it, girl!)
And I, I, I
I just want it all, I just want it all    (all done with diapers)
I'm gonna put my hands in the air   (hooray! You did it!)
Hands in the air     (You get a treat!)
Put your hands in the air    (help her celebrate her success!)

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes  (and pray for divine help!)
Saying AYO!
Gotta let go!   (God, help her figure this process out!)
I wanna celebrate and live my life   (I want to move on, is it too much to ask?)
Saying AYO!
Baby, let's go!   (to the potty, now!)

'Cause we gon' rock this club   (big girl club)
We gon' go all night    (someday...)
We gon' light it up   (the bathroom)
Like it's dynamite!   (with your successes!)
'Cause I told you once   (you need to go potty?)
Now I told you twice   (How about we try?)
We gon' light it up
Like it's dynamite!    (You can do it, baby girl!)



You must watch this version on YouTube here. It's our favorite, we've watched it at least 25 times, and it has clean lyrics. The guy who sings it , Mike Tompkins is amazing-- he makes all of the synth, snare, bass, 
piano, etc., with just his mouth!


You can see what it means at my sister-in-law's house here. They're the wonderful folks that turned our kids on to this song...

  2. Cute! Oh, and I know the feeling! My 3 3/4 year old is still not there yet. I am starting to fear I will have 3 in diapers by this summer. :-(
