Remember Raffi

Baby boomers and others have been honored to listen to the irreverent and funny, Raffi.  I know him from when my kids were very young. He made new singable songs for kids - kind of like the Shel Silverstein of singing.  Perhaps some of you younger boomers heard him in your youth.

Now that I'm a grandparent, I need more songs to draw from my brain to sing to my grandbaby.  I'm thinking that this chant is the way to go:
If you get up in the morning at a quarter to one
and you want to have a little fun,
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch....
If you get up in the morning at a quarter to two
and you want to find something to do,
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch....
If you get up in the morning at a quarter to three
and you want to hum a tweedle dee dee,
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch....
If you get up in the morning at a quarter to four
and you think you hear a knock at the door,
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch....
If you get up in the morning at a quarter to five
and you just can't wait to come alive,
You brush your teeth ch ch ch ch, ch ch ch ch....
Remember Raffi with Raffi music

That tune is sung on his Singable Songs for the Very Young CD.  Go for it, see how much your memory recalls, and have a good laugh, too.
