Original Lyrics by my Monkeys

All of Jake's songs are sung to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star except one:

Shake, Shake, Shake
Shake, Shake, Shake
Shake your boo-pay
Shake your boo-pay

He learned this from his older brother, of course, who sings the orginal Shake Your Bootie. Jake's other tunes are:

Goggy, goggy, goggy, goggy (his word for doggy, this is sung to Twinkle, Twinkle)
Goggy, goggy, goggy, goggy

Daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy,
daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy

Bekah's made-up songs, also have made-up sing-songy type melodies. All of her songs are about rainbows, butterflies, and super cats flying through the world. Except Bekah pronounces world, whirrrled. She trills her "r"s but not like Spanish, it's more like she has a Scottish brogue. She also pronounces all of her "L"s like "W"s, so a little rainbow, would be a "wittle rainbow" in a Bekah song. She also sings a song about her being a baby coming out of my vagina, but I discourage her singing that as much as possible. If you don't have children yet, you may just want to not tell them the correct names for body parts, that is totally backfiring on me.

D.J. Mikey G. in the house!! My oldest, almost 5 years old, is the best at making up songs, unfortunately they are all about body parts and bodily secretions.

Bootie Soap (sung to the tune of the Star Wars theme song)

Bootie soap,
bootie soap,
you are washing your butt
with bootie soooooap

I was serenaded with the above song while I was in the shower and yes I was washing my butt with bootie soap. At the time I was NOT amused AT ALL!

Poop My Butt (sung to the tune of If You're Happy And You Know It, except without the chorus)

If you're happy and you know it poop my butt
If you're happy and you know it poop my butt
If you're happy and you know it pee your eyeballs
If you're happy and you know it pee your eyeballs

This goes on forever, or until I yell at him, but those are his 2 favorite lines for sure.

Another Michael re-mix:

It's raining,
It's pouring,
The old man is snoring
He fell out of bed
And I kicked him in the head

Some other titles that I will most likely turn up on Mike's first professional recording:

Old MacDonald Had Some Poop
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Fart
Stupid, Weiner, Spider (went up the poopy spout)
A,B, C, Poop
Jingle Butts
Row, Row, Row Your Bootie


There are more, too many to remember in one sitting. I have to wake up Jake so we can pick Mike up from his Pre-K class. But can you understand why this is his 3rd preschool?! Do you get it now when I am thrilled by just one positive parent teacher conference? I love the dude, but he's crazy!!

I'm both relieved and saddened by my children being mostly grown. We used to sing the poopy song, the dog song, the mommy is going to hop a train song...

hahaha! Great remixes!

LOL, mommy is going to hop a train song is a good one. I have to confess that my husband and I make up songs all of the time which is where my kids get it from. We are a little more high-brow than our, a little.

Thanks Pop C.!
