Do you remember this Raffi song?
Down by the bay
where the watermelon grow
Back to my home
I dare not go
For If I do, my mother will say:
Did you ever see a bear combing his hair*
Down by the bay…
This line can be replaced by virtually anything – the point is rhyming. And ridiculousness.
Today I heard one I hadn’t hear before. A kid is singing while getting ready for lunch, and he sings…
Did you ever see a teacher kissing a creature?
It made me laugh. I was also impressed by the rhyming!
