Episode 27: Call the Doctor! – Transcript

This transcript is for the Sing Along with Mandy Podcast show, “Call the Doctor”. You can listen to the entire episode here!

Hello hello hello

Have you ever knocked your head or had to go to the doctor’s office for an earache or a cold? My son, Franklin, broke his arm this summer, and he had to get a cast on it to help it heal again! Our bodies are amazing, and we’re so grateful to the doctors and nurses and other professionals who help us take care of them. Today’s songs are all about booboos and owies – but don’t worry, it’s all pretend!

Greeting

Hi Friends! Welcome back to the Sing Along with Mandy Podcast. I’m Mandy, and I’m so glad you’re here. 

I love to sing songs and play fun – and sometimes silly – games and I especially love to sing and play with you. 

If you or your adult would like to see the lyrics to the songs in this episode, I’ll leave a link in the show notes.  If you don’t know a song yet, don’t worry! Just listen and sing along when you can. Are you ready? Let’s sing!

Our first song today is about Humpty Dumpty. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a very good outcome!

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men

Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

Let’s see if our next patient does any better that Humpty. Do you know Jack and Jill?

Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill

Went up the hill

To fetch a pail of water

Jack fell down

And broke his crown,

And Jill came tumbling after.

Up Jack got 

And home did trot,

As fast as he could caper;

And went to bed 

And plastered his head

With vinegar and brown paper.

There’s a camp song that combines these two nursery rhymes. Do you know it? It’s called Humpty Dump and it goes like this:

Hump-ty Dump

CHORUS

Hump-ty dump

Hump hump de dump-ty dump-ty

Hump-ty dump

Hump hump de dump-ty dump-ty

v.1

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men said

OOH! AIN’T THAT FUNKY NOW!

CHORUS

Jack and Jill

Went up the hill

To fetch a pail of water

Jack fell down

And broke his crown, and

OOH! AIN’T THAT FUNKY NOW!

CHORUS

You can keep going with some of your other favorite nursery rhymes!

Our next song is about eating something that makes you sick… it’s called Found a Peanut and it’s sung to the tune of Oh My Darling. You can listen to the two songs in Episode 22 when you play our matching melodies game!

Found a Peanut – to the tune of Oh my darlin’

Found a peanut, found a peanut, found a peanut just now.

Just now I found a peanut, found a peanut just now.

Then it continues with the same melody:

Cracked it open

It was rotten

Ate it anyway

Got a stomach ache

Called the doctor

Operation

Died anyway

Went to Heaven

Wouldn’t take me

Went the other way

Didn’t want me 

Woke Up

It was a dream

Found a Peanut….

Grown ups, if you like what you hear, will you help me reach more little listeners? I would be so grateful if you would you share a video or picture of your kids singing along or you can even take a screenshot of the podcast. Be sure to tag me in it so I can say hi!  I’m at the @singalongpodcast on Instagram and Facebook and @PodcastSing on Twitter.

Have you ever accidentally touched a pot that was too hot? Our next song is called Little Tom Tinker and he touches a clinker that’s hot from a candle!

Little Tom Tinker

Little Tom Tinker got burned by a clinker and he began to cry, 

“Ma Ma

What a poor fellow am I.”

I like to imagine that Little Tom Tinker’s mama comes right up and gives him a big hug and an ice pack to put on his hurt spot.

Rhythm repeat

Let’s play our Rhythm Repeat game! First, let’s warm up our hands with a drumroll. Use you hands to slap your thighs! (drumroll)

Can you clap your hands? (clap) Can you snap your fingers? (snap) Can you slap your knees? (Slap) I call this next game Rhythm Repeat. It’s very easy.

I’m going to say some very silly words and then you repeat them. You can clap, snap and slap along too!

My turn, your turn, 8 rounds]

This next song is about calling the doctor when little ones bounce out of bed! Featured sing along book of the show – illustrated by Eileen Christelow

Five Little Monkeys

Five little monkeys jumping on the bed,

One fell down and bumped his head,

Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,

“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

Four little monkeys jumping on the bed,

One fell down and bumped her head,

Papa called the doctor and the doctor said,

“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

Three little monkeys jumping on the bed,

One fell down and bumped his head,

Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,

“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

Two little monkeys jumping on the bed,

One fell down and bumped his head,

Papa called the doctor and the doctor said,

“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

One little monkey jumping on the bed,

He/She fell down and bumped his/her head,

Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,

“No more monkeys jumping on the bed!”

No little monkeys jumping on the bed,

None fell down and bumped their head,

Papa called the doctor and the doctor said,

“Put those monkeys right to bed!”

Grown ups, I can make your child his or her own sing along with his favorite songs or based on something she loves like trains or baby dolls or bath time.

Our next song is super fun. It’s called Miss Lucy but let’s change the name to one of our friend’s names! How about Merrill! It was her birthday this week – Happy Birthday, Merrill!

Miss Lucy Had a Baby (Merrill)

Miss Merrill had a baby

His name was Tiny Tim

She put him in the bathtub

To see if he could swim.

He drank up all the water.

He ate up all the soap.

He tried to eat the bathtub

But it wouldn’t go down his throat.

Miss Merrill called the doctor.

Miss Merrill called the nurse.

Miss Merrill  called the lady

With the alligator purse.

“Mumps!” Said the doctor

“Measles!” said the Nurse

“Nothing!” said the lady with the alligator purse

Miss Merrill punched the doctor.

Miss Merrill knocked the nurse.

Miss Merrill kissed the lady

With the alligator purse.

If you want to hear more songs perfect for bath time, make sure you check out episode 26: Bath Time! We scrub our bodies, pour water, pretend we’re in a boat, and play fun games in the bathtub. Of course, if you’re in the car you can always pretend you’re in the bath tub!

Our last song today has some fun motions that you can do as we sing. When we are talking about the baby, rock a baby in your arms. When we talk about a cold, pretend to sneeze! When we talk about the baby’s chest, pound your chest, and when we talk about rubbing it, rub your chest gently. Last, when they rub it with camphorated oil – that’s a liquid that smells really strongly and most people don’t like the smell at all. You can pinch your nose and squeeze your eyes shut. Here’s how the song goes. 

John Brown’s Baby – with motions 

John Brown’s baby had a cold upon his chest

John Brown’s baby had a cold upon his chest

John Brown’s baby had a cold upon his chest

And they rubbed it with camphorated oil.

Great! Remember how I said we could change the names of people in our songs? Well, my friend Miss Merrill has a twin sister, Lane – and, you guessed it, it was her birthday this week too! Let’s sing about Lanie Bear’s birthday this time. Happy birthday, Lane!

Lanie Bear’s baby had a cold upon his chest

Lanie Bear’s baby had a cold upon his chest

Lanie Bear’s baby had a cold upon his chest

And they rubbed it with camphorated oil.

For the next few verses, we’ll leave out words – but keep doing the motions like rocking the baby and pounding your chest! 

Omit word “baby” throughout – (rock baby in arms)

Omit “baby” and “cold” – (sneeze)

Omit “baby”, “cold” and “chest” – (slap chest) 

Omit “baby”, “cold”, “chest” and “rubbed” – (rub chest)

Omit “baby”, “cold”, “chest”, “rubbed” and “camphorated oil” – (hold nose and make a face)

It is never any fun to be hurting or sick. But, we all get hurt sometimes and we all get sick. Whenever that happens, I like to think about all the people who can make us feel better. Kind what Mr. Rogers would say: “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” They may be our brothers or sisters. Or our mamas and daddies. Our doctors and nurses. Sometimes ladies with with alligator purses. Until next time, friends – I wish you the best of health!
