Lyrics

Flea (the warm-up song)

(Directions: Slap your hands on your lap, then clap your hands together. Slap, Clap, Slap, Clap. Keep the pattern going. After each line, the audience repeats.)

Flea
Flea fly
Flea fly flow
Vista
Vista

Coom-a-la, Coom-a-la, Coom-a-la Vista.

Oh, no, no, no, not the Vista.

Eeny-meeny, ex-a-meeny, ooo-ah-ooo-ah-a-meeny
Ex-a-meeny, zah-la-meeny, ooo-ah-ooo-ah.

Be biddly bo bo bo bo ba-dee-en-da-en.

Shhhhhhhhhhh…….

(Now repeat the song a little faster, then a third time at Super Sonic Speed!)

Peanut Butter and Jelly

Peanut, Peanut Butter, (both index fingers point in the air)
JELLY! (spoken in a “cool” whisper – both index fingers point down)
Peanut, Peanut Butter, (both index fingers point in the air)
JELLY! (spoken in a “cool” whisper – both index fingers point down)

First you take the peanuts and you dig ’em,
(act like you are digging up peanuts with both hands)
You dig ’em,
You dig ’em, dig ’em, dig ’em!
Then you smash ’em,
(act like you are smashing the peanuts with both hands)
You smash ’em,
You smash ’em, smash ’em, smash ’em!

Peanut, Peanut Butter,
JELLY!
Peanut, Peanut Butter,
JELLY!

Then you take the grapes and you pick ’em,
(act like you are picking grapes with both hands)
You pick ’em,
You pick ’em, pick ’em, pick ’em!
Then you smash ’em,
(act like you are smashing the grapes with both hands)
You smash ’em,
You smash ’em, smash ’em, smash ’em!

Peanut, Peanut Butter,
JELLY!
Peanut, Peanut Butter,
JELLY!

Then you take the bread and you spread it,
(act like you are spreading peanut butter and jelly onto a piece of bread)
You spread it,
You spread it, spread it, spread it!
Then you bite it,
(act like you are biting into the peanut butter and jelly sandwich)
You bite it,
You bite it, bite it, bite it!

(Hum the chorus instead of singing the words
so it sounds like you have your mouth full of peanut butter!)

Lollipop
(This is a sad song, not a happy one, because you are coming to the end of your lollipop. So make a sad face, and hold on to your lollipop. And each time you lick your lollipop, make sure it is a loud, sloppy, messy SLURP!)

When you come to the end of a lollipop, (giant slurp)
To the end,
To the end of a lollipop, (giant slurp)
When you come to the end of a lollipop, (giant slurp)
PLOP goes your heart! (slap palm of hand to chest)

Oh gilly, oh golly,
How I love my lolly,
Right down to the very last lick! (giant slurp)
But when you are through with it,
What can you do with it? (shrug shoulders)
All you have left is the stick!
(act like you are throwing a lollipop stick away)

When you come to the end of a lollipop, (giant slurp)
To the end,
To the end of a lollipop, (giant slurp)
When you come to the end of a lollipop, (giant slurp)
PLOP goes your heart! (slap palm of hand to chest)

Skunk

Wellllllllllllllllllllll……
(hold on to this note for a long time – point finger in the air)

I stuck my head in a little skunk’s hole,
Little skunk said, “Well, bless my soul!”
“Take it out!” (move thumb front to back in a “get outta here” motion)
“Take it out!” (“get outta here” motion)
“Take it out!” (“get outta here” motion)
Remoooooooove it!”

Well I didn’t take it out,
And the little skunk said,
“Better take it out or you’ll wish you had!”(shake pointer finger)
“Take it out!” (“get outta here” kind of motion)
“Take it out!” (“get outta here” motion)
“Take it out!” (“get outta here” motion)
Remoooooooove it!”

Well I didn’t take it out,
And the little skunk said,
“Pssssssssssssssst!” (Make a horrible grimace face)
I removed it!

Confidentially, (hand to mouth like you are telling a secret)
PU! (hold nose)

An Austrian Went Yodeling

Oh, an Austrian went yodeling,

Bear Hunt

(Start “walking” with your hands, slapping them up and down on your thighs as if you are walking along with your feet. Your hands keep walking the entire time, unless there are other directions.)

Goin’ on a Bear Hunt!(after each line, the audience repeats)
Ooooo, lookie!
What is it?
It’s a tree!
Can’t go under that,
Can’t go over that,
Can’t go through it,
So we gotta climb up it!
Oh-Key-Doh-Key! (do the “Okay” sign with both hands)
Let’s us go!
(Make clucking sounds while acting like you are climbing a tree, then coming back down – all in rhythm – 4 beats up and 4 beats back down)

Back on the road!
Ooooo, lookie!
What is it?
It’s a bridge!
Can’t go around that,
Can’t go under that,
Can’t go through it,
So we gotta go over it!
Oh-Key-Doh-Key! (do the “Okay” sign with both hands)
Let’s us go!
(thump on your chest, one fist at a time, like you are thumping across a bridge – 8 beats)

Back on the road!
Ooooo, lookie!
What is it?
It’s a stream!
Can’t go around that,
Can’t go under that,
Can’t go over it,
So we gotta go through it!
Oh-Key-Doh-Key! (do the “Okay” sign with both hands)
Let’s us go!
(Make a swishing sound as you act like you are swimming through the stream – 8 beats)

Back on the road!
Ooooo, lookie!
What is it?
It’s a wheat field!
Can’t go around that,
Can’t go under that,
Can’t go over it,
So we gotta go through it!
Oh-Key-Doh-Key! (do the “Okay” sign with both hands)
Let’s us go!
(Rub your hand together and make a “Ch-ch-ch” sound as you walk through the wheat field – 8 beats)

Back on the road!
Ooooo, lookie! (Start to sound and look like you don’t like what you see)
What is it?
It’s some mud – yuck!

Can’t go over it,
So we gotta go through it!
Oh-Key-Doh-Key! (do the “Okay” sign with both hands)

(“Walk” into cave make “leaf crunching” sound – 4 beats)

I feel something hairy in here!

I feel something very, very hairy in here!

It’s a BEAR!

(From now on, everything is done fast like you are “running” back home. Make each sound and motion as you go back the way you came.)

Back on the road,
Through the mud,
Through the wheat field
Through the stream,
Over the bridge
Up the tree,
Down the tree,
Back in your house!
Shut the door!
Lock it!
Safe!
