Part of Your World --> A Sister Now
So- on facebook I wrote a status earlier saying, "was playing 'Part of Your World' on piano. Now I'm in a music altering mood...think I might go do some lyric changes for fun :P "I did it. I made a parody of "Part of Your World" and named it "A Sister Now. It is about a girl that has been watching a lot of her guy friends head out on missions and wishes to join them, rather than sit around waiting until she is 21. As some of my fellow girls from BYU know, this is kinda the story of our lives. No joke. Well, I hope you enjoy this. Sorry if the quality is kinda off and if it is hard to understand. I've included the lyrics to help with this. Enjoy!
A Sister Now
Look at this stuff.
Isn’t it neat?
Wouldn’t you think this collections complete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m a girl, a girl to start serving?
Look at this list.
Who knows how many wonders I have in store?
Looking at me here you’d think, “Sure, she’s got ev’rything.”
I’ve got Scriptures and pamphlets a-plenty.
I’ve got friends serving all over the world.
You want letters written? I’ve written 50.
But who cares? No big deal, I want more.
I want to be where the elders are.
I wanna see, wanna see in-ves-tigators,
Listening in on those.... whatd'ya call em? Oh... lessons!
Flippin' your pages, don't get you far.
Calls are required to start your mission.
Heading on a Wednesday to... what's that place again? M.T.C!
Out where they tract,
Out where they learn,
Out where they stay all day in the world-
Not on T.V.
Wish I could be a sis-ter now.
What would I give if I could go out on a mission?
What would I pay to spend eigh-teen months far away?
Betcha out there
they really care
Bet they don't think of you as a freshman.
Bright young women
Sick of sittin', waiting for mi-ssion-aries!
And I'm ready to know what the elders know.
Asking them questions and learning the answers.
What's the difference be-tween nine-teen and twenty- one?
When's it my turn?
Wouldn't I love, love to explore that world far away-
Out of train-ing.
Wish I could be
A sis-ter now.
On another note- a friend of mine just logged off of the facebook/texting/virtual world to serve a two year mission in Idaho. Now, I had promised myself I would not cry when my boys left but, of course, he had to mention the first time we met and how much our friendship had meant to him. I almost broke down while reading it but, I kept telling myself I was NOT going to cry over these boys. As soon as he logged off and I re-read his message (BIG mistake) I lost it. I know these boys will be blessed for their service. They are all amazing young men whom the Lord will be very proud of them as they serve faithfully. I know I am. Even though it is hard to say good-bye it's more of a see ya later and it will be a great two years as they serve the Lord. I can't wait to see them all again and give them each a great big hug and hear all about their amazing experiences. Missionaries are blessed and those they leave behind are also blessed because of their service. So- it's not a good-bye, even though it feels like it, it's a see ya later alligator or, for this Elder a TTFN-ta ta for now. Good Luck Elder Mann. You will be a great missionary.
