Seth Lyr Req: Oh my, I want a piece of pie (56* d) Oh my, I want a piece of pie 25 Oct 00


Ella(Etta?) Jenkins made some great kid's records for Folkways. I'm trying to find a very simple song she put on a record for teaching kids about music that went from simple repetitive songs to jazz.

"Oh my, I want a piece of pie.
The pie's too sweet; I want a piece of meat.
The meat's too brown; I'll have to go to town.
The town's too far; I'll have to use my car."

...and so on. This song might be a little dry for TV saturated American kids, but my Chinese first and second graders learning English would love it.

Thanks Seth from China
