(to the tune of frere jaques)

See that mange tout,
see that mange tout,
wriggling on the ground,
wriggling on the ground,
that's not mange tout,
that is a snake.

See that carrot,
see that carrot,
flying through the air,
eating all the nectar,
that's not a carrot,
that is a bee.

See that pea,
see that pea,
hanging from the ceiling,
hanging from the ceiling,
that's not a pea
that is a bulb.

They appear to be the main verses, although she has done it with various vegetables.

Is this a trend currently sweeping nurseries, or is she some kind of unhinged comedy genius???

DD4 in nursery and I never heard that song from her I think you have a comedy genius.

DD4 for ever making up songs about anything at the moment but she composes her very own music to go with them rather than just copying an existing tune!wink

Never heard of that but it's brilliant!

My dd started preschool at 2 and immediately started singing a song
'lollipop lady give it a try, buses and cars watch them go by, lollipop lady give it a try.'

I even started singing it loads as it's catchy, asked at preschool what it was and they all fell about laughing at me saying they have no such song. They suggested it must be off tv but only ever watch cbeebies and it's def not on there!

they make up songs to traditional nursery rhymes at ds nursery

ds sings a song about honey to frere jaques and he sings twinkle twinkle traffic lights

ds does make up his own songs too smile

My son sings a song he said the school made up and there's a line in it about watching cbbc!! Not sure if he's made that up but he doesn't watch cbbc!

The lyrics are hardly Chekhov are they? , they certainly sound as though they've been made up by a pre-schooler.

My DS doesnt make any songs up :-( he just repeats "Baby, you're a firework" to any woman he sees, in a Joey Tribianni kind of way... the women tend to be blonde too...

I'm going to be singing that all afternoon now Buttery grin (I especially like the mange tout verse)

glendathegoodwitch Mon 01-Aug-11 16:34:22

dd (5) sings twinkle twinkle chocolate bar from school and she makes up the lyrics to pop songs she hears

OP - That is amazing! I especially love the last lines of all the verses LOL

The little boy I look after (not yet 2) sat on a bus the other day repeating "birds go tweet tweet, cars go beep beep" over and over and looking a bit proud of himself.

BelleDameSansMerci Mon 01-Aug-11 17:17:50

It's brilliant!

"birds go tweet tweet, cars go beep beep" over and over and looking a bit proud of himself.

That is from nick then goes "beep beep, tweet tweet, beep beeb tweet tweet....." getting faster and faster.

That's right Spider-piss on OP's parade.

wickedwitchofwaterloo Mon 01-Aug-11 18:26:27

Oh festi!
You've ruined it for me now, I thought he was a 23 month old rhyming genius
Ah well...

festi Mon 01-Aug-11 19:01:32

I know im sorry I posted that then read back at spiders post and realised I had pissed on your parade aswell. sorry!!!

spiderpig8 Mon 01-Aug-11 19:28:18

'Dexifehatz' I think the OP was being ironic!

LineRunner Mon 01-Aug-11 19:30:38

BellaBearisWideAwake Mon 01-Aug-11 19:33:27

my DD never swears ever when she talks but for a stage between age 2 and 3 shesang little dittys to herself and threw in a random 'fuck' and 'shite' blush very quietly to herself!
