This Pampers commercial asserts that babies who wake up feeling dry also wake up feeling happy. I don’t have a kid so I don’t know if that’s true or not. Is it true? If so, I’m utterly jealous of that easy happiness. I wake up dry every single day and I don’t feel happy about it at all! Maybe I just need to change my perspective. Each morning I could wake up and think, “Hey, at least I’m not soaked in urine!” and then roll around smiling in celebration.
Anyway. This fun song is called “I feel pretty.” Paired with the messiest baby bedheads you’ve ever seen (How fun would it have been to be the stylist on that set?), it’s both a fitting and cute choice. There are many versions of “I feel pretty,” a song originally written by Stephen Sondheim, composed by Leonard Bernstein, and popularized by West Side Story. After some sleuthing I found that the version in this spot is performed by Julie Andrews.
I feel pretty
Oh so pretty
I feel pretty and witty and bright
And I pity any girl who isn’t me tonight
I feel charming
Oh so charming
It’s alarming how charming I feel
And so pretty
That I’m loved, by a pretty wonderful boy
