Button Factory (Hello My Name Is Jo)

Similar to My Aunt Came Back, this action song features a gradual build-up to a ridiculous climax. Lyrics vary between versions. For example, my lyrics are different than those of the video.


Hello, my name is Jo,
And I work in a button factory.
I've got a dog and one kid,
And one day the boss came up to me:
Are you busy, Jo? I said no.
He said, push this button with your left hand.

Hello, my name is Jo,
And I work in a button factory.
I've got a dog and two kids,
And one day the boss came up to me:
Are you busy, Jo? I said no.
He said, push this button with your right hand.

Hello, my name is Jo,
And I work in a button factory.
I've got a dog and three kids,
And one day the boss came up to me:
Are you busy, Jo? I said no.
He said, push this button with your left foot.

...Right foot
...Head
...Tongue

See if you can add more verses!






Mime pushing a button with your left hand.
Continue to push it, on the beat.





Mime pushing a button with your right hand.
Keep both hands going, on the beat.





Add your left foot to the mix.
...And so on.
