Aiken Drum


This song invites participation from your child(ren) by asking them for ideas on what Aiken Drum looks like. It’s a great vocabulary builder.



Lyrics

There was a man lived on the moon, on the moon, on the moon.
There was a man lived on the moon and his name was Aiken Drum.
And he played upon the ladle, the ladle, the ladle,
He played upon the ladle, and his name was Aiken Drum.

(ask child(ren) for ideas of kinds of food, or animal parts, or transportation parts, and add them in to the song as part of Aiken Drum)
His nose was made of a peach….and his name was Aiken Drum.
His eyes were made of headlights…and his name was Aiken Drum.
His ears were made of elephant ears…and his name was Aiken Drum.
