Any suggestions for a unique musical theater song for a 7-8 year old? So many are over used, and I am at a stand still with it. I like "I Enjoy Being a Girl," but that's the only one I can find. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

My dd has danced to several musical theater songs.  Most probably are overused, but here they are:

If My Friends Could See Me Now (Sweet Charity)
Sparkling Diamonds (Moulin Rouge)
I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair (South Pacific)
Magic to Do (Pippin - I've actually never seen this one at a competition, come to think of it ...)

She really wants to do My New Philosophy next year, but that one is definitely overused, so I'm not seeing DT going for it [biggrin]

Please, I beg of you ...if you're anywhere near Toronto, please don't do My New Philosophy.  Really, really overused.

My DD is the queen of MT at our studio. Here's what she has done.

Age 7/8 comp season: I Like to Fuss
Age 9/10 comp season: The Mad Hatter
Age 10/11 comp season: Getting Good at Being Bad
Age 11/12 comp season: One of the Boys 
We'll see what next year brings.......

My New Philosophy is cute but really over done. 

Life of the Party from Wild Party
Also well used, but cute. Born to Entertain

So glad I jumped on here.  I had MT music questions, as well, for a 10yo.  Would love something humorous.  I'll check out those listed above, but any funny song suggestions???

"Shy" from Once Upon a Mattress just popped into my head. It is definitely funny, but an old one (for perspective, Carol Burnett played the role on Broadway as a young actress and Sara Jessica Parker did it in the late 90's). Would need some editing because it is long- there's an instrumental dance break in the middle. It could be a lot of fun.
