I Went To Visit My Grandma

Written By: Michael E. Thomas

I went to visit my grandma on a saturday night. She has a dog named Bo-Bo and a cat named Dwight.

She offered me a hot sandwich and put a sugar in my tea.
I gave her a bonette and she set it on her knee.

I'd really like to see her with a flower in her hair.
But she just likes to smell them while sitting in her chair.


I went into the bathroom to get my hands clean.
A noise came from the kitchen. I wondered what could it be.
I was only gone a minute, but it seemed like a minute too late.
Someone ate my sandwich right off of my plate.


Well I asked my grandma just where did it go.
She just grinned then smiled at me and said, "oh, I don't know".
Then I saw Dwight the cat with his head in my tea.
And Bo-Bo looking guilty staring at me.


But grandma had mustard hangin' from her nose.
And a good bit of cheese dribbling down the front of her clothes.
I said, "Grandma, you ate my sandwich!" What'dya do that for?",
She said, "I was feeling a little hungry, honey I'll fix you some more.

Popcorn Jam

Written By: Michael E. Thomas

My Pop made a snack last night.
He said, Mama don't you worry, don't you get a fright.
Now it made sound like the roof coming down, but kids all dig that popcorn sound.

He dropped some kernals out of his hand.
Used a little oil in a cooking pan.
You'd better stand back as far as you can.
When they start to pop. We jump to the popcorn jam.


It's easy to do the popcorn jam.
You just squat on the floor just as low as you can.
Then you pop right up just as high as you can.


Got a little butter? Carmel will do.
Munch, Crunch all over town.
Kids are having popcorn now!


hmmm, I'm doing the popcorn in my shoes!

Penguin Freeze

Written By: Michael E. Thomas

I'd like to tell you about a dance called the Penguin Freeze
When the music is playing you can shake like a breeze
But you never know when the music may stop
So listen closely and you'll stay on top.

Now some silly kids might like to tease, yes they do!
When the music stops Freddy will sneeze
When Leah's good she always says please
The trick is when you try to do all three

Do the Penguin Freeze (3x)
PPPPPenguin Freezzzze

Now you can do the Penguin Freeze
So when the music stops shake your knees
Bring your friends to the Loop-Dee-Loop
And try the freeze with a hula-hoop

wow, look at them go!!
