Buttons and Beads

Page history last edited by Jane McManus 6 months ago

Let's sing a song of buttons, 

Of buttons, of buttons.

Let's sing a song of buttons,

That fasten our clothes.

There are big ones and small ones,

With 2 holes and 4 holes,

Let's sing a song of buttons,

That fasten our clothes.

 

Pickin'up buttons, put 'em in your pocket,

Pickin'up buttons, put 'em in your pocket,

Pickin'up buttons, put 'em in your pocket,

Over by Grandma's sewing basket.

Sortin' out the buttons, red ones, blue ones,

Sortin' out the buttons, red ones, blue ones,

Sortin' out the buttons, red ones, blue ones,

Over by Grandma's sewing basket.

Some have 2-holes, some have 4-holes,

Some have 2-holes, some have 4-holes,

Some have 2-holes, some have 4-holes,

Over by Grandma's sewing basket.

 

I have a little button box,                (show square fingers)
And it can open wide.                     (hands opening)
Buttons all along the top,                (forefinger and thumb circles representing buttons placed on top)
And buttons on the side.                (and on side)
Buttons for my trousers,                 (then on trousers)
Buttons for my shirt,                       (and along shirt front)
And buttons for my button box
that I found in the dirt!                  (bend and pick up button. Don't put it in your mouth!)
