Mother's Day: Down By the Bay
Tune: Down By the Bay by Raffi
adapted by teachers everywhere

Down by the bay
Where the watermelon grow
Back to my home
I dare not go
Cause if I do
All Mothers will say,
"Don't give me that look - go read a book!"
Down by the bay!

Down by the bay
Where the watermelon grow
Back to my home
I dare not go
Cause if I do
All Mothers will say,
"Put your toys away - because I say!"
Down by the bay!

Down by the bay
Where the watermelon grow
Back to my home
I dare not go
Cause if I do
All Mothers will say,
"Make your bed - do what I said!"
Down by the bay!

(interlude)

Down by the bay
Where the watermelon grow
Back to my home
I dare not go
Cause if I do
All Mothers will say,
"Clean your plate - don't be late!"
Down by the bay!

Down by the bay
Where the watermelon grow
Back to my home
I dare not go
Cause if I do
All Mothers will say,
"Change your underwear - because I care!"
Down by the bay!

Down by the bay
Where the watermelon grow
Back to my home
I dare not go
Cause if I do
All Mothers will say,
"Hug me tight - then I'll turn out the light!"
Down by the bay!

What can you add that all mothers might say?



Poem to a special lady on Motherís Day

Even though you're not my Mom
Youíre there for me every day
You've given me love, youíve made me smile
Youíre special in every way.
