Strong Mama
By Eric Litwin

Lyrics:

 

Strong Mama says 

No, no, no 

Worried papa goes 

Oh, oh oh 

Big brother says 

Yeah, yeah yeah 

The little baby says 

Whaa, whaa, whaa 
 

The cool cat says 

Meow, meow, meow 

The old dog goes 

Bow, wow, wow 

Silly sister says 

Ha, ha, ha 

The radio plays 

Cha, cha, cha

Activities:   
 

Sit-Down Song: Play the CD and sing along.  Each line has a movement:

No, no, no (wave index finger authoritatively to the beat)
Oh, oh oh (hold hands up by your head and shake as if you’re worried)
Yeah, yeah yeah (make a muscle with arm and shake it to the beat)
Whaa, whaa, whaa (“rub” eyes to the beat as if crying)
Meow, meow, meow (either hold up cat’s ears to your head or move your “paws” to the rhythm stealthily)
Bow, wow, wow (wag your “tail” to the beat)
Ha, ha, ha (lean head back and pat belly to the beat as if laughing)
Cha, cha, cha (do a twist to the beat)


Sing A Cappella (without the CD): Make up additional verses to include other family members, like Grandma, Grandpa, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. such as “Uncle Steve says I Love You” and make it rhyme with other animals, like “the crazy cow says Moo Moo Moo.”
