Patti Lupone’s wonderful Top Five Rules of Theater Etiquette. I think Etiquette should be part of every person’s education. Where did it go? I need some, too. Let’s self educate, start a movement, and begin with these:

1. R-E-S-P-E-C-T- Be aware of your theater going neighbor. In front of you, behind you, to your right, and left. Treat them with respect, unless you’re sitting next to a loudmouthed idiot.

2. Power Down – Turn off all electronic devices, and watch the play instead.

3. Have Dinner Beforehand- Refrain from eating and drinking in your seat. The majestic old ladies that are Broadway’s great theaters deserve your respect. The theater isn’t your kitchen. There is always intermission to imbibe.

4. Use Judgment – Don’t feel obligated to give everything you see a standing ovation.

5. Prepare For Bliss – Come to the theater with the expectation of being transported. Isn’t that why you bought the ticket?

Let’s start a REVOLUTION of GOOD BEHAVIOR!

This is Yankee Doodle for Sing Books with Emily. No offense to the original, but I think EVERYONE should be handy, so I adapted some chords to play it on my guitar and slightly altered the words at the end and finished it off w a musical AAA-AAA-MEN.

I’m planning to add the 1776 text, too, to complete a nice groovy little song.  The full text would be the following (played with chords in the photo:

In the fight for liberty

Yankee Doodle keep it up

Mind the music and the step
And let us all be handy

The Leaves on the Trees
Sing to the Tune of LONDON BRIDGE IS FALLING DOWN or WHEELS IN THE BUS
Words by Thom Wiley
Illustrated by Andrew Day

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

This is another one of those little books which has rather captured my heart.  It’s about TREES!  I love trees. When I was little, my paternal grandmother (a beautiful woman in every way, who my sister and I called Penny) took time to teach me to identify a whole bunch of trees and flowers.  I’m still not an expert, but being able to identify trees makes me feel close to them, invested in their well being and respectful of their long lives and service to our environment.  Here’s a book, sung to a familiar tune that will help and inspire kids to learn to identify 9 tree varieties: Sweet Gum, Tulip Poplar, Ginko, Maple, Linden, Ash, Hickory, and Sassafras.

When I first found this adorable little book, it was easy to tell it was written to sing with a familiar tune.  The first tune which sprang to mind was LONDON BRIDGE IS FALLING DOWN.  A bit of research on the book reveals that the words were written to be sung with WHEELS ON THE BUS.

The first lyrics are:  The leaves on the trees are falling down, falling down, falling down.  I imagine this is what got me thinking about LONDON BRIDGE, and because I like LONDON BRIDGE better, and because the song works perfectly well with that tune, I’m going to stick with it.
