Melani, You are exactly right.
Just by the way I couldn't help thinking that my two daughters could probably relate to your story. I didn't sing this particular song but I know that my understanding of the songs I sing, and the effect they can have on listeners, has changed over the years. I think that the worst I did though was to be always dressed up in what my kids saw as funny clothes. They would have preferred a less weird Mum. I'm a Grandma now. Grandmas are expected to be eccentric.
