A Song For Making Mud Pie

(To the tune of Sing a Song of Sixpence)

Sing a song for mud pie,

It’s my favorite brand.

Mix it ‘til it’s mushy,

Squeeze it with your hand,

Put it in a tin pan,

Leave it in the sun.

Wait about an hour,

Then you know it will be done!

Mud, Mud, Mud Is Fun      

(To the tune of Row, Row, Row Your Boat)

 Mud, mud, mud is fun

Watch us stir it up

Round and round and round and round

Mud is fun to make.

 

Mud, mud, mud is fun

Listen to it squish

Through our fingers, round our toes

Squish is how it goes.
