Thread Name: Origins: Beans in my Ears (Len Chandler)
Subject: RE: Beans in my Ears?
The Rise Up Singing songbook attributes this song to Len H. Chandler, copyright 1964. The book has a few verses we have fun with in our song circle:

Hey, Charlie, let's go and put beans in our ears....
WHAT'S THAT YOU SAY? (2nd child)Let's put beans...
YOU'LL HAVE TO SPEAK UP, I'VE GOT BEANS IN MY HEARS...

30 people shouting those lines makes a pretty impressive racket.
