...this time on the Johnny Cash show, November 11, 1970. It's interesting to me that unlike the Sesame Street clips, this one isn't from a kid's show, but it's arguably a better children's song than the two he played for Big Bird and the gang, at least a better teaching song. This is a tune I could take right into the classroom and have a rip-roaring time with.
Songs like this, with the same basic refrain but a small change each verse, are a blast for young kids (a la Wheels on the Bus, Old McDonald, Five Little Monkeys, etc.) and great for language development, as the repetitive verse allows them to get comfortable with the rhythm of the words and the small changes each verse keep them interested and excited for the next verse, as well as introducing new vocabulary.
