On his YouTube page, Benjamin Ames writes that his 4-year-old daughter, Adelaide, thought that she heard fireworks and that she couldn't sleep. So, propped in front of a camera, the two sang the lovingly simple "Tonight You Belong to Me" as a way to "keep her mind preoccupied."
As Ames and Adelaide start the song, the little girl gives her dad instructions to "be quiet" or "shhh" when she thinks she still hears fireworks outside. Clad in little pink-trimmed owl pajamas with tiny pigtails atop her head, Adelaide stops the music a few times, while managing to get out the words, "I know, you belong, to somebody new / ... 'shhh!' ... / but tonight, you belong, to meeeeeee."
