I love me some Bruno Mars. I know every word to "When I Was Your Man." Emo song about love lost. "I should have bought you flowers and held your hand. Should have gave you all my hours when I had the chance. Take you to every party 'cause all you wanted to do was dance. Now my baby is dancing, but she's dancing with another man." Oh, Bruno. You really know how to belt it out. And so does 4-year-old Kai Langer from Woodland, Texas.
Little Kai was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week and did his own rendition of Mars' song. It was his second visit to the show -- the first time he covered "Grenade." Watch Kai in a signature Bruno Mars fedora hat belt out "When I Was Your Man." Better prepare yourself though -- you might smile so hard, you'll hurt your face.
"I should have bought you fwowers ..."! Don't you just love the way little Kai sings? The hand expressions! The way his cute little face scrunches up! THAT FEDORA!! And then when he holds Ellen's hand to really emote the lyrics -- too much cute. I just love when kids know all the words to a song. My son knows most of the words to The Black Keys' El Camino album. I'm a proud mama.
Kai is a huge fan of Bruno's and even met him once on a plane. He told Ellen, "I was taking a nap and my mommy woke me up because she saw Bruno Mars -- she was walking to the bathroom. And Bruno said 'Hit it Kai.'" And the tot sang for his idol! Now if only I saw Dan Auerbach somewhere so my son could sing for him.
Great video, isn't it? Your face hurts from smiling, doesn't it? Best thing you've watched all day, right?
