FUNNY songs you sing & play on your dulcimer
General mountain dulcimer or music discussions
Are funny songs the same as singalongs, with most everyone smiling and singing? If so, then I must add a few of mind:
Boil Them Cabbage
If you’re happy and you know it.
Old Joe Clark
I created my own lyrics to WaterBound, just for laughs and storytelling. For instance, one verse:
“The outhouse needs moving, I don’t wanna go home. But I sure miss my brothers, I do wanna go home. Watermelons are ripe I sure want me one, down in North Carolina.”
In the middle of the verse, I stop, and tell a watermelon story, about 30 sec long, then pick the song right back up. Always fun with head nodding and head scratching, but always smiles.
“If you’re happy and you know it”, is kinda like my theme song. It’s fun, and removes the big elephant out of the room. I don’t care what crowd, this song is loved, fun, and loosens everyone up. Fun fun fun.
Today has been sad. I was supposed to perform for the first time this morning, for an assisted living home, outside in the garden area.
Not to be. They had 4 new cases of Covid19, yesterday. The activities director gave me the call around 8:00 this morning. Sad sad sad.
Anyways, just thought I would share my thoughts a little.
Y’all stay healthy and well, please.
