When my siblings and I were young, my mom would tell us that dad used to sing to her when they were dating. She giggled and laughed when she told us the story. We all laughed at this unbelievable story. We've never heard dad sing before. Then one day, she was telling the story again when dad was in the room. So he sang the song and pretended to chase after her. We were laughing so hard at the two of them. It was one of the very few times I saw dad out of his typical Asian father role. He continued singing while we laughed hysterically. After he finished, they both went back to whatever they were doing.
I'm not sure why I thought of this tonight. I had a tough time remembering which version of the song they liked. I chose this version because dad also had a deep voice.
Did you sing to your loved ones or vice versa?
