From the recording Reaching for The Stars
Malvina Reynolds Schroder Music
This song is good for those times when the children just need to move around.
Everybody says sit down sit down,
Everybody says sit down.
But I can’t sit down no I can’t sit down
’Cause my feet are all full of dance around.
Chorus:Bump deedle um bum, bump a dee
Everybody bump a deedle dance with me
Bump deedle um bum, bump a dee
Everybody bump a deedle dance with me.
Everybody says be good be good
Everybody says be good
But they don’t understand I’m as good as good
’Cause dancing around is what I should.
Everybody says what’s wrong, what’s wrong
Everybody says what’s wrong.
But there’s nothing wrong when I’m singing my song
But you’d better watch out if I’m quiet too long.
