Have you ever got
a very silly thought?
If so did that thing
make you want to sing?
And with that silly song
did you sing along?
If so, what did you sing of?
Did you sing about a floppy, brown hat worn by a big, yellow tomcat?
Or maybe you sang about a small bird who never ever spoke a single word!
Was it about book, with words to spare, who took you on trips to here and there?
Or maybe it was of a bag, big and bright, that shone so well it lit up the night!
I’d like to know. What did you sing about?
Maybe you sang of a old kangaroo or maybe of an owl who called, “Whoo Whoo!”
Or did you sing about a great grapefruit or of a train calling out, “Toot toot!”
Maybe you sing of a sad, green frog who sat all night on his lonesome log?
Or was your song about a music note that always imagined he was a boat?
Tell me please, what did you sing of?
Did you sing about colors up in the sky, dancing and twirling, like ribbons on high?
Were you thinking on apples, all in a line, or did you hum with happy flies in mind?
Did you sing about mountains standing tall or tiny, ant hills that are oh, so small?
Did you sing about waves chasing the beaches or windowsills holding bright, pink peaches?
What, my friend, did you sing about?
Were any of these subjects in your song? What was the reason you hummed along?
Was your song about children? Was your song about dolls? Was your song about a house of brightly colored halls?
Did you hum about snowflakes or great, grey moose? Did you hum of a happy, carefree goose?
If you didn’t hum of a hat worn by a cat
or didn’t hum of a bird who never spoke a word
and didn’t sing of book or bag so bright
and neither hummed of kangaroo or owl in the night
and you didn’t sing of a grapefruit or of a train
and didn’t sing of a frog who’s all alone again,
then what did you sing of?
You didn’t sing of a note or colors in the sky
and didn’t hum of apples or a happy fly.
Your song wasn’t of mountains or ant hills
neither was it about waves or windowsills.
I’ve asked and asked the whole post through. What was the silly song sung by you?
You’ll tell me!? You will!? Hurrah! This is great! You’ll sing me your song! Oh I can’t wait!
I love silly songs, so sing loud and clear, for a silly song is my favorite to hear!
I encourage you never stop singing along with every happy and silly song.
They bring you laughter and good memories too. So keep singing the thoughts that are brought to you.
So, now you will sing it. Your silly song. And when you start singing, I’ll sing along!
What silly songs do you sing?
