Tracy Tests TSM Staff On Mother Goose Rhymes
It's all fun and games until someone says "go!"
Baa, baa, black sheep had a little lamb?
And who knew the little teapot had so much flair!
Tuesday, May 1, is National Mother Goose Day, and I appreciate my coworkers being so kind as to play along.
Most adults who haven't been around toddlers aren't exposed to the engaging Mother Goose rhymes we were as children and, as you see in the video, the memory does fade with age.
In case you are now questioning your own knowledge of these familiar nursery rhymes, here's the ones our fun gang tackled. Did they get it right? Did you?
"I'm A Little Teapot"
Bruce gave it a go, and his performance was Oscar-worthy. However, it may not be kid-approved.
"I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle; here is my spout.
When I get all steamed up, hear me shout. Tip me over and pour me out!"
"Baa, Baa Black Sheep"
Ms. Janet's laugh alone could make children happy. Sheep, lamb? We see how a girl could get confused.
"Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.
One for my master, one for my dame, one for the little boy who lives down the lane.
Baa, baa, black sheep have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full."
"Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"
These two are DJs on the radio and on the "scene." They mixed it up, as usual, and really brought star power for this one!
"Twinkle, twinkle, little star. How I wonder what you are. Up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star. How I wonder what you are."
"Ring Around The Rosy"
When air staff, our own creative genius, and sales people work together productively, the results are spectacular!
"Ring around the rosy, a pocket full of posies;
Ashes, ashes, we all fall down."
"The Itsy Bitsy Spider"
Leave it to Jude Walker to put a Cajun spin on a traditional nursery rhyme!
"The itsy-bitsy spider climbed up the water spout. Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain, and the itsy-bitsy spider climbed up the spout again."
Kudos to this morning duo! Well done, guys.
"Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man. Bake me a cake as fast as you can.
Pat it and roll it and mark it with a B, and put it in the oven for baby and me!"
Mike likes to get to the point. Humpty sat on a wall and fell off. The end.
"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty together again."
