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

That cute little song that characters sing on the Big Bang Theory wasn’t just made up for the show.  You can sing it, too.

I figured out some easy guitar chords so you can accompany yourself and sing it.  And, as you can see in the video, it makes an adorable round!

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

Edith Newlin called her song, “Warm Kitty.”  But I’m going to call it, “Soft Kitty,” since that’s what they sing on Big Bang.

My chords sing the song in the Key of C (not the same key that they are using for the song above).

The first note you sing is a G.

SOFT KITTY
Song by Edith Newlin
From: Songs for the Nursery School
Adapted from English Folk-Tune
Chords by ELEG for SBWE

C                 G7
Soft kitty, warm kitty

C                     G
Little ball of fur

C                     G7
Sleepy kitty, happy kitty

C          G7       C
Purr!  Purr!  Purr!

NOTES ON VISITS

In most visits, I brought along my guitar and fun instruments like jingle bells, limberjacks, kazoos, and train whistles.

I developed a big canvas sack full of homemade books for little songs and Mother Goose nursery rhymes.  Some of the rhymes I made myself and then wrote tunes and chords to go with them.  For others, I figured out chords for traditional tunes.  The kids love the chance to take turns and pick books from the bag.  They close their eyes and pull out a song and then we sing the surprise.

The published books are all in big canvas bags, too.  Sometimes, I pick out songs for the group and sometimes kids come up and choose a song at random.

It’s fun for everyone and keeps me on my toes, too!

I was perusing my EASY guitar repertoire for songs about birds and ran across THERE WAS AN OLD MAN WITH A BEARD.  I’ve long thought this was a funny song and have fallen in love with some illustrators’ rendering of Edward Lear’s limerick.  Having assembled a few sing-along lyric sheets, I’ve always sung it for kids a capella.  This time, with the tune ringing in my ears, it seemed I might be able to play it on my guitar.  Sure enough, I tinkered with some chords from my not-so-long menu of beginner ones (but sufficient enough to play a whole lot of songs) to find that some of them fit the bill.  And then I found some images and made a collage for the illustration.
