Song: Mom and Me
Sung to the tune of "How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?"
Step 1
"Mom and Me"

My mom brings me food when I am hungry,
Like apples and alphabet stew,
To help me grow up big, strong, and healthy,
Just like wild animals do.


My mom and I play outside in the sunshine.
It’s warm, and the sky is so blue.
We run and play tag until we’re tired,
Just like wild animals do.


My mom gives me baths when I am dirty,
Though sometimes I don’t want her to.
She says I’ll feel happy when I’m cleaned up,
Just like wild animals do.


- Jennifer Bové
