Down By The Bay

Jonah came home from school today singing a song that brought me back to my childhood. "Down by the bay" was one of my absolute favorite silly songs ever. It goes:

Down by the bay
Where the watermelons grow
Back to my home
I dare not go
For if I do
My mother will say,
"Have you ever seen a mouse
painting a house"
Down by the bay!

You repeat the song over and over, changing "Mother's" sayings to other silly, rhyming sentances ("Llama wearing pajamas", "Snake baking a cake", "frog walking a dog", etc). It was the best and it sure gets lots of laughs out of 4 year olds!

What are some of your favorite songs from when you were a kid?
