Backdrop: Elanor has a genre of songs that she makes up called "the princess songs." Imagine lines like this sung in a raspy, toddler contralto, "Belle lived in a CASTLE and she liked BOOOOOOKS!"
Elanor: Mama, I want to sing you a princess song. Which one do you want to hear?
Me: How about...Ariel?
Elanor: No. There's a bad shark in that one.
Me: Okay--what about Sleeping Beauty?
Elanor: No--there's a bad shark in Sleeping Beauty.
Me: In Sleeping Beauty?
Elanor: Yeah, in my Sleeping Beauty.
Me: What about Cinderella?
Elanor: There's a bad shark in Cinderella. Ohh, how about I sing you a new princess song. I'm going to sing you one about Rapunzel.
Me: Okay! Sing me the Rapunzel song.
Elanor: I can't sing you one about Rapunzel because I haven't "heared" it. No one has ever "heared" it. I could sing you the Silly Princess Alien song, but I don't want to. Ian, sing the Silly Princess Alien song.
Ian (to "Clementine"): String of nonsense syllables followed by "Oh my darling, Clement-alien."
Elanor: Now sing the Silly Unicorn song.
Ian (to "Clementine"): Unicorn-in, unicorn-in, unicorn-in, unicooooorn....
