Faye absolutely adores this song. I think it’s in part because I love singing it to her. We actually started off singing it in German, as my husband first recalled it from a Sesame Street skit, but I found it easier to sing it in English (go figure).
I think I spend 95% of my day singing to Faye. 92% of those songs are completely made up and are pretty much a narrative of what is happening at the moment.
Claire (another August 2014 mom) was awesome enough to introduce this great British children’s song to the rest of us at our first Montessori-esque meetup last week and both my husband and I can’t get it out of our heads. We also can’t stop singing it with an English accent, but that’s another issue entirely.
