Down By The Bay

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!
