Addendum 7/26/2014

Simple Gifts is one of my favorite songs.

With the help of my guitar teacher, I figured out some simple chords for accompanying myself.

Here’s a song sheet, so you can sing along, too:

Lyrics for Project PUT Theme Song Set to MY COUNTRY ‘TIS OF THEE Tune, Recognized by Author of Book About the Song

frog he would a-wooing go stobbs - Copy
A Frog He Would a-Wooing Go
Traditional Words and Tune
Illustrated by William Stobbs
Another title for same song is Froggie Went a-Courtin’

A friend of mine had an interesting conversion going on Facebook and someone mentioned the song FROGGIE WENT A-COURTIN’.

This reminded me that I bought a frog limberjack for singing the song (for which I also plan to use the horse limberjack I already had)

FROGGIE is a story song, but the story can be repetititve and can progress slowly.  So, as to keep kid’s attention and keep the story moving, I’ve adapted the song to suit my needs. As the folks process allows, I’ve added a couple new lyrics and changed others.

I didn’t want Forggie to be packing a pistol, for example. I prefer that he just wanted to dress up and look nice for Miss Mousie.  I also wanted to condense the conversation with Uncle Rat, have him bless the wedding, and get right to the festivities.  In my version, the Bumblebee comes to play the banjo and the Old Gray Goose cuts loose on the fiddle, and the Ants come for a dance.  I wanted to make sure they go to France for they honeymoon and, as is traditional, for listeners to be told to make up some new story for themselves.

FROGGIE WENT A-COURTIN’
Traditional Words and Tune
Some Adaptations by ELEG for SBWE

Froggie went a-courtin’ and he did ride, a-huh
Froggie went a-courtin’ and he did ride
All dressed up to show his pride
A-huh, a-huh, fare thee well

He rode down to Mousie’s door, a-huh
He rode down to Mousie’s door
Where he had often been before
A-huh, a-huh, fare thee well

He took Miss Mousie on his knee, a-huh
He took Miss Mousie on his knee
And asked “Miss Mouse will you marry me?”
A-huh, a-huh, fare thee well

“You must ask my Uncle Rat’s consent,” a-huh
”Without my Uncle Rat’s consent
I would not marry the president”
A-huh, a-huh, fare thee well

Uncle Rat smiled and he said yes, a-huh
Uncle Rat smiled and he said yes
And this his how the wedding went
A-huh, a-huh, fare thee well

First to come was the Bumblebee, a-huh
First to come was the Bumblebee
Who played the banjo on his knee
A-huh, a-huh, fare thee well

Next to come was the Old Gray Goose, a-huh
Next to come was the Old Gray Goose
She picked up her fiddle and she cut loose
A-huh, a-huh, fare thee well

Last to come were the Fancy Ants, a-huh
Last to come were the Fancy Ants
Steppin’ ‘round to have a dance
A-huh, a-huh, fare thee well

The Mouse and Frog each said “I do,” a-huh
The Mouse and Frog said, “I marry you,”
Then off to France for their Honeymoon
A-huh, a-huh, fare thee well

The wedding picture sits on a shelf, a-huh
The wedding picture sits on a shelf
If you want anymore, then sing it yourself
A-huh, a-huh, fare thee well

Since the text is not so easy to read on the first poster, I decided to make a second one so kids can read the text and sing-along:

Happy Independence Day from Sing Books with Emily, and an addition to the Yankee Doodle Repertoire
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2014/07/04/happy-independence-day-from-sing-books-with-emily-and-an-addition-to-the-yankee-doodle-repertoire/

A little Patriotic Gift to USA from Sing Books with Emily on Independence Day 2014

My children both went to Tuckahoe Elementary School in the 4th grade and participated in the wonderful event (the day to which most of the 4th grade at Tuckahoe leads up to) known as COLONIAL DAY.  A section of the celebration is devoted to songs of the period.  They learn a verse to YANKEE DOODLE that is not usually sung.

I’ve adapted it slightly and made a poster:

In Seventeen-hundred Seventy-six
On the Fourth Day of July
Our Independence we declared
In the fight for liberty

Yankee Doodle keep it up
Yankee Doodle Dandy
Mind the music and the step
And let us all be handy

**********************
A note form Emily on a lyric in the classic patriotic ditty (and why Emily changed it)

I love the song YANKEE DOODLE and most of what it stands for, but that lyric “let the girls be handy,” has always bothered me.  When I sing the song with children in classrooms and libraries, I let the children come up with other ideas for who should also be handy (since I believe EVERYONE should be handy).  I suggest:  Dads, Moms, Teachers, Sisters, Brothers, Boys, etc.

In this case, I decided to change the lyric to “LET US ALL BE HANDY.”  That pretty well covers it and I like it much better.

FIVE GREEN AND SPECKLED FROGS is a fun movement and counting song.  I have assembled a book you can print and put into a 3-ring binder.  My illustration included participation cards for child volunteers to play the frogs while everyone sings-along.

These are my instructions for assembling the book for yourself into a 3-ring binder then singing this cute counting songs using child volunteers and the FROG NUMBER CARDS that are included with my illustration:

  • Print the pages
  • Put p. 1 (front cover/title sheet) into the front clear pocket of a 3 ring binder
  • Put p. 3 (back cover) into the back clear pocket of the 3 ring binder
  • Use scissors to for p. 4 and cut out the sliver of paper with the title of the book on it and slip the sliver into the clear plastic side edge pocket of the 3 ringer binder so you can find the book on a shelf.
  • Put each of the remaining pages in its own sheet protector
  • Put all protected sheets, in order, into the 3 ring binder, except for the sheets with big blue numbers 0-5, put those into one of the inside pockets of the 3 ring binder
  • To sing the song with a group of children, get 6 volunteers to stand up and hold each of the sheets with blue numbers. As you sing the song (flipping the pages as you sing), the child with the appropriate number will sit down after the lyric, “One Jumped into the pool.” For example, when you begin with 5 frogs on the log, the child holding the card with #5 on it will sit down when that frog jumps in the pool. Each child will sit down when his/her number is sung. When and the child with the log sits down, the song is over and everyone claps for what a great job all the volunteers did.
  • HAVE FUN!

I LOVE TRASH
Words and Music by Jeffrey Moss

Oh, I love trash
Anything dirty or dingy or dusty
Anything ragged or rotten or rusty
Yes, I love trash

I have here a sneaker that’s tattered and worn
It’s all full of holes and the laces are torn
A gift from my mother the day I was born
I love it because it’s trash

Oh, I love trash
Anything dirty or dingy or dusty
Anything ragged or rotten or rusty
Yes, I love trash

I have here some newspaper thirteen months old
I wrapped fish inside it, it’s smelly and cold
But I wouldn’t trade it for a big pot of gold
I love it because it’s trash

Oh, I love trash
Anything dirty or dingy or dusty
Anything ragged or rotten or rusty
Yes, I love trash

I’ve a clock that won’t work
And an old telephone
A broken umbrella, a rusty trombone
And I am delighted to call them my own
I love them because they’re trash

Oh, I love trash
Anything dirty or dingy or dusty
Anything ragged or rotten or rusty
Yes, I love, I love, I love trash

Oscar the Grouch (Caroll Spinney) sings his song:

**********************

Muppet wiki for I LOVE TRASH:

To better understand the lyric “a gift from my mother the day I was born…” here’s wiki for Oscar’s mother, Mrs. Grouch:
http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Mrs._Grouch

*
There’s an interesting little write up about Oscar the Grouch in this page:
http://calibermag.org/articles/these-characters-could-use-some-love/

One thing this page says is that Oscar the Grouch is, “eco-friendly. He has become a mascot for waste reduction and waste management, including Canada’s Waste Reduction Week, the Japanese Eco Kids Project, and various unofficial uses.”  This makes an even better case for adding I LOVE TRASH to Eloise’s Project PUT song list.

The wind is passing through.

Neither you nor I.
But when the trees bow down their heads,
The wind is passing by.
