So is this completely inappropriate?

I sing to my kids all the time. There's a wide range of songs that I use for that purpose. One, though, is the Doors' "People Are Strange."

Is that bad? The songs we traditionally sing to kids often contain far worse things. We sing about babies falling out of trees, elderly men who are unconscious and possibly dead, and killing mice. So what's wrong with singing about being a tad bit eccentric?

Heh. I used to sing No Doubt's "Hey Baby" to baby Aidan when he wouldn't stop crying! :) "People are Strange" is completely appropriate, esp. if you have 5-6 year olds around!
