Aiken Drum

This song is hilarious and creative. It's ridiculous easy to integrate this into a class: Children can make up verses, write a story about Aiken Drum (who really doesn't have to be a man), draw Aiken Drum...
Below, then, is a clever performance of this song.



There was a man who lived in the moon,
in the moon, in the moon,
There was a man who lived in the moon,
and his name was Aiken Drum.

Chorus:
He played upon a ladle,
a ladle, a ladle,
He played upon a ladle,
and his name was Aiken Drum.

His hair was made of spaghetti,
spaghetti, spaghetti,
His hair was made of spaghetti,
and his name was Aiken Drum.

(Chorus)

His ears were made of broccoli,
broccoli, broccoli,
His ears were made from broccoli.
and his name was Aiken Drum.

(Chorus)

His nose was made of carrots,
carrots, carrots,
His nose was made from carrots,
and his name was Aiken Drum.

(Chorus)

Make up your own verses! There are plenty of body parts to cover.
