P is for I'm not Perfect

This is a song my kids love by Laurie Berkner. 

I’m not perfect, no I’m not
I’m not perfect, but I’ve got what I’ve got
I do my very best, I do my very best
I do my very best each day
But I’m not perfect
And I hope you like me that way

We’re not perfect, no we’re not
We’re not perfect, but we’ve got what we’ve got
We do our very best, we do our very best
We do our very best each day
But we’re not perfect
And we hope you like us that way

You’re not perfect, not you’re not
You’re not perfect, but you’ve got what you’ve got
You do your very best, you do your very best
You do your very best each day
But you’re not perfect
And you know
I love you that way

I wish I knew how to embed a song so you could listen to it but I'm not that savvy and I couldn't find a good youtube video and I ran out of time. Sorry.  


  1. I always liked that song it helps keep you grounded.
    You could always add a link.

  2. This is a great song. I've never heard of it, but I can picture kids loving it.

  3. I've never heard it either, but the words are great!

  4. Great words. I'm going to check it out on YouTube later.
    I'm always on the lookout for catchy songs to teach to my school choir.

  5. I think you did a darm good time. If only everyone in the world thought like you do, Sara. It would be happier and safer for everyone.

  6. Love it! Imperfection is what makes people great. :-)

  7. A great reminder for all of us. I love Laurie Berkner.

  8. Oh that we would extend that grace to ourselves and others!

  9. That's a nice song and it's great that your kids keep that in mind :)

  10. No one is perfect and that makes us all perfect in our own little way. :)

  11. Great song! Haven't 'heard' that one before.
