Echoes in our nursery rhyme

My tot is learning to speak. One manifestation of this is to try to sing nursery rhymes but she usually only sings a word or two at the end of a sentence. It's an odd feeling that she no longer just sits there sweetly while I sing to her...its become a competition now.
One where there are demands for certain songs and strong outbursts of No! if I sing the one she doesn't want to hear.
So far this week, I have sung Ally, Bally,Ally Bally Bee at 16 times. I'm not sure I can take much more. I may become wicked and make up new rhymes each day to ensure there is no attempt to disrupt my melodic sessions.
