My passion is writing plays and songs for children and my store has a wide selection of Christmas plays and action poems/songs. This is the latest original song to the tune of Supercalifragilistic and includes 3 verses and the chorus, plus the short introductory drama.
This cute song could be sung by a choir or class, with 3 students acting out the roles of the 2 children and the mother to introduce the song. The role of the mother should possibly be a mature Grade 2 or 3 student or could even be a student from an older grade. If you prefer not to include the drama, that’s fine too!
The short drama introduction (literally 2 minutes) wouldn’t need any costumes. You would need paper and pencils on a shelf or table nearby the actors, and 2 chairs for the children to sit in. You could include a small table if you wish. Once the drama is finished the students would go back and join the choir or exit off the stage.
Actions could easily be included in the song, (ie. Hands on side of head when saying, “till we’re asleep”, “ hands clasped in front of chest and head tilted to the side, like a perfect angel, when saying, “we have been so good” , pointing to the audience when saying, “and all our parents would just a-gree.” ) etc. Use any actions that you see fit the song.
Any type of rhythm instruments could be added or clapping for the chorus. The song has such a steady beat that even dance moves could be included if you chose to get really creative!
