Horsey and a flea and three blind mice, Sittin’ on a corner shootin’ dice, The horse slipped and fell on the flea, The flea said whoops there’s a horse on me. CHORUS Boom Boom ain’t it great to be crazy Boom Boom ain’t it great to be crazy Silly and foolish all day long Boom Bomm ain’t it great to be crazy Took myself to the picture show Sat right down in the very third row Wrapped my arms around my waist Got so fresh, had to slap my face CHORUS Way up north in the ice and snow Eskimo lived and his name was Joe Got so tired of black and white He wore pink panties to the dance last night CHORUS Way down south where bananas grow Ant stepped on an elephants toe Elephant cried with tears in his eyes, “Why don’t you pick on someone your own size?” CHORUS Eli Eli, he sells socks A dollar a pair and a nickel a box The longer you wear ’em the shorter they get Put’em in the washer and they don’t get wet! CHORUS
Stand or sit in a line. On the first word “boom” pat your legs (left hand on left leg and right hand on right leg). On second “boom” cross your arms and pat your legs so that your left hand crosses over your right. On “ain’t” pat the left leg of the person sitting to your right with your right hand and your own right leg with your left hand. On the word “it” you pat your own legs as you did on the first “boom”. On the word “great” you cross your right hand over your left and pat your legs. On the word “to” you pat the right leg of the person sitting to your left with your left hand. On the word “be” you start the pattern over from the very beginning until the end of the chorus.
This song should start out fairly slowly and build up speed on each repetition of the chorus.
