Silly Stories!

Let's Sing a Lullaby with the Brave Cowboy by Jan Thomas

Trot Ol' Joe

Trot Ol' Joe.  Trot Ol' Joe.
You ride better than any horse I know.
Trot Ol' Joe.  Trot Ol' Joe.
You're the best horse in the country-o.
Whoa... Joe!

Here is a fun
video I found featuring the song "Trot Ol' Joe.  We had fun singing this song, although we did NOT do the part where we all fall backwards. We were sitting too close together to do this part of the song without bumping heads!  You might like to try this at home, where you have more room to pull back on the reins and yell, "Whooooooa!"

If You're a Cowboy and You Know It
(tune: "If You're Happy and You Know It")

If you're a cowboy and you know it, shout "yee-haw." (YEE-HAW!)
If you're a cowboy and you know it, shout "yee
-haw." (YEE-HAW!)
If you're a cowboy and you know, then your face will surely show it.
If you're a cowboy and you know it, shout "yee
-haw." (YEE-HAW

If you're a cowboy and you know it, rope a cow.... (swing arm above head as though using a lasso)
If you're a cowboy and you know it, ride a horse.... (pretend to hold reins in front of you as you trot)

I have soooo much fun visiting Miss Amy's classroom this year.  The students are always very welcoming and very eager to listen to stories, sing along on songs, and feed treats to my puppet, Wesley.  Thanks to the children and teachers for the wonderful surprise they prepared for me today!  They sang a very silly song about an alligator.  I'll probably be singing the refrain in my head all day long!  "Aaa-lligator, Aaa-lligator! Can be a friend to you!"

I hope everyone has a fun and safe summer!
