Originally a skiffle/bluegrass song from the US which has been adapted to almost every style. Very popular. You can bring in all the different instruments and make up new categories – beatboxers, walkin’ bass, plinky-plonk piano – etc. Easy to add percussion to and mimic the sounds of the instruments. 

Two versions – one from Beth Allen and the other an arrangement for Beaconside Singing Orchestra by Jilly Jarman



“A great song for all ages – good for ending a session, getting everyone to add their own bit, add body percussion and instrument sounds.” This audio is teachers at the end of a long INSET day.
