Overview

Even kids who think they hate singing cannot resist the goofy tunes in this songbook. Written specifically for upper-elementary and middle-school students, parodies of old favorites like "My Bonnie Went in for a Face Lift" and "Oh, My Darling, Frankensteen," and hilarious original tunes like "Snot Is Not the Proper Subject for a Song" and the tongue-twisting "Impossible to Sing Song" keep kids laughing while they learn to love singing. Short, melody-only versions of the songs photocopy easily and are accompanied by full-piano leader editions.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-6-The selections in this volume may be silly, but they vary enough to tickle children. Nothing is sacred-from folk tunes to those of Gilbert and Sullivan. Beginning with well-known melodies, 45 new songs emerge with entertaining lyrics. Songs to the tune of old favorites, story songs, miscellaneous fun, warm-ups and rounds, tongue twisters, parodies, variations in rhythmic difficulty, humorous vocal warm-ups, and two-part songs are all included. From the rhythmic difficulty of "Mary Possessed a Petite Offspring of a Ewe" to the alliteration of "Sam's sixth sister sizzled thistles in a sausage pan" from the "Impossible to Sing Song," these tunes provide musical fun through an instructional tool suitable for classrooms or campsites. An entertaining resource with strong appeal to elementary students.-Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
