Boom Boom Ain’t it Great to Be Crazy

Boom boom ain't it great to be crazy,
Boom boom ain't it great to be nuts like you,
Silly and foolish all day long,
Boom boom ain't it great to be crazy.

A way up north in the ice and snow,
there was a penguin and his name was Joe
He got so tired of black and white,
That he wore pink tights to the party last night


A horsey and a flea and three blind mice,
were sittin' on a tombstone shootin' dice.
The horsey slipped and fell on the flea,
"Whoops!" said that the flea,"there's a horsey on me."


Way up north where bananas grow,
an ant stepped on an elephant's toe,
the elephant cried with tears in his eyes,
"Why don't you pick on a guy your own size?"

Let your child “paint” on the sidewalk or dirt using water, and watch it evaporate. If you have chalk, you can also write with chalk.
