No, not the Ayn Rand kind…


…the Laurie Berkner kind!  A client of mine back in Pittsburgh used to sing this song to me all the time (usually when he was supposed to be doing something unpleasant like washing his hands or learning to write his name), and I have since adopted it as my theme song.  Hooray for songs that grown ups *and* kids enjoy!

Listen to it for free on Rhapsody!

Here are the lyrics:

I’m not perfect, no I’m not
I’m not perfect, but I’ve got what I’ve got
I do my very best, I do my very best
I do my very best each day
But I’m not perfect
And I hope you like me that way

We’re not perfect…

You’re not perfect, not you’re not
You’re not perfect, but you’ve got what you’ve got
You do your very best, you do your very best
You do your very best each day
But you’re not perfect
And you know
I love you that way!

And here’s a link to Laurie’s website (OMG!  She’s coming to DC!  Quick!  I need to borrow somebody’s kid so I can go to the show without looking weird!)

    And here I thought I would be privy to a video clip of your kitty singing the National Anthem! (Hint: that would probably make an AWESOME post).

    we’re still working on that, though she *has* mastered the art of announcing her presence with a loud “chirrrup” as she stomps on my face at 4 in the morning…
