It’s Howdy Doody Time

No. Sorry. Its not. But it did get your attention! I’ve been cooped up too long. I’ve started to write songs. Just the lyrics. Over the years I have written a few with friends. One year my elementary school wrote and sang to the kids “Thank God that school is out” (to the tune of Thank God I’m a Country Boy.) And one year we did the Twelve Days of Christmas… the only part I can remember is “and a first grader with a bloody nose” Took the place of the partridge in a pear tree.

Here is my pandemic song sung to the tune of “Its Howdy Doody Time”. You youngsters will have to Google that….

Its senior shopping day

I’ll soon be on my way

But first I’ll don my mask

I’m doing all they ask.

And next I’ll sanitize

Keep fingers from my eyes

And wipe the shopping cart

cause I’m corona smart.

I’ve organized my list

to minimize the risk

At this I am quite good

At finding all my food.

Fogged glasses make me squint

As down the aisles I sprint

At last I think I’m done

Oh this is so much fun.

I load stuff in my car

I parked not very far

Now sanitize again

Kill germs from where I’ve been.

At home I put away

Continue with my day

And hope enough I’ve done

Stay safe…. everyone!

I’m not expecting a Grammy…. maybe a Granny award.

Add some lyrics in the comments if you’d like!

  1. Absolutely wonderful (and I remembered the tune!) You should do a video of you singing it and post it on YouTube – you could become another internet sensation! Thanks for the laugh.

  2. If I could give out Grammy awards, I’d order you one instantly. I needed this.

    And now I’m drying to hear the words to your school version of “The 12 Days of Christmas”. The one line you remembered made me laugh out loud! Hopefully you’ll remember the rest of it someday.
