Boom, Boom - Ain't it great to be crazy!

A horse and a flea and three blind mice
Sat on a curbstone shooting dice
The horse he slipped and fell on the flea
"Whoops!" said the flea, "There's a horse on me!"
Chorus:
Boom, boom! Ain't it great to be crazy?
Boom, boom! Ain't it great to be crazy?
Giddy and foolish the whole day through
Boom, boom! Ain't it great to be crazy?
Way down south where bananas grow
A flea stepped on an elephant's toe
The elephant cried, with tears in his eyes
"Why don't you pick on someone your own size?"
Repeat Chorus
Way up north where there's ice and snow
There lived a penguin and his name was Joe
He got so tired of black and white
He wore pink slacks to the dance last night!
Repeat Chorus

 

 

Bear Song

The other day (echo)                                       The nearest branch
I met a bear (echo)                                          Was 10 feet up
Out in the woods (echo)                                   Iíd have to jump
A-way out there(echo)                                                 And trust my luck

Altogether:                                                                  And so I jumped
The other day I met a bear                              Into the air     
out in the woods a-way out there.                     But I missed that branch
(Continue in a similar manner)                           Away up there                                                    
                                                                       
He said to me                                                   Now donít you fret
ďWhy donít you run?                                         Now donít you frown
I see you ainít                                                   Cause I caught that branch
Got any gunĒ                                                     On the way back down
                                                                                   
And so I ran                                                     The moral of
Away from there                                                          This story is                
But right behind                                                           Donít talk to bears
Me was that bear                                                         In tennis shoes
                                                                       
Ahead of me                                                    Thatís all there is
I saw a tree                                                      There ainít no more
A great big tree                                                           So what the heck
Oh glory be                                                                  Are you singing for?!?

Do Your Ears Hang Low?

Do your ears hang low?
Do they wobble to and fro?
Can you tie them in a knot?
Can you tie them in a bow?
Can you throw them oíer your shoulder like a Continental soldier?
Do your ears hang low?

 

Do Your Ears Hang High?

Do your ears hang high?
Do they reach up to the sky?
Do they droop when their wet?
Do they stand up when their dry?
Can you signal to your neighbor with a minimum of waiver?
Do your ears hang high?

 

Three Fishies Song

Down in a meadow in an itty-bitty pool
Swam three little fishies and a mama fishy too
"Swim," said the mama fishy. "Swim if you can."
And they swam and they swam
Right over the dam
Boom-boom fishie-fishie
why you donít?
Boom-boom fishie-fishie
Why don't you?
Boom-boom fishie-fishie
Why don't you?
And they swam and they swam
Right over the dam
"Look," said the mama fishy. "Look at that whale!"
Quick as they could they turned on their tails
back to the meadow in the itty-bitty pool
and they swam and they swam
Right over the dam
Boom-boom fishie-fishie
why you donít?
Boom-boom fishie-fishie
Why don't you?
Boom-boom fishie-fishie
Why don't you?
And they swam and they swam
Right over the dam

 

If youíre Happy

If youíre happy and you know it
Clap your hands
If youíre happy and you know it Clap your hands
If youíre happy and you know it
And you really want to show it
If youíre happy and you know it
Clap your hands

Continue in a similar manner
If youíre happy and you know it
Stomp your feet.
If youíre happy and you know it
Shout ďHooray!Ē
If youíre happy and you know it
Do all three
