Eli the Musical

Kay and I have come up with a few songs that we sing to Eli on various occassions. I figured we might as well make a musical.

This page will be in a bit of disarray while we figure out how to properly present the information:

Eli Buttons (Introduction and Refrain?)

Eli Buttons is his name
Laying ’round and pootin’ is his game.

He has nosies on his face
And toesies on his feet!
All that together is surely kinda neat
‘Cuz Eli Buttons is his name

Eli Buttons is his name
Layin’ round and pootin’ is his game…

He has knees on his legs
And fingers on his hands!
All that together is really very grand!
Cuz’ Eli Buttons is his name!

Diaper Pooper Dandy

Let me start by saying I think I actually heard this song elsewhere. I cannot claim credit for it, however I will be using it here as it complements a specific aspect of raising a child. This is sung to the toon of “Yankee Doodle Dandy”

Eli’s a diaper pooper dandy
A diaper pooper do or die
A real life nephew of his uncle Chris

Need to keep working on it.

Diaper pooper went to town a poopin’ in his diaper
Eli’s that diaper pooping boy!

I Need a Berp

I need a berp
I want a berp
I need a berp from Mr. Eli Jones
Fala-lala-lala!!!

Repeat….

There’s a Button On His Pants

There’s a button on his pants
And it really likes to dance
Up and down and all around his <insert noun>.

Repeat the above song and change the “noun” each time.   Whenever Eli provides a word make sure to respond.  He either likes to say things that are cute like “mommy”, “daddy”, or “house”.  When he does we say “awwww”.  If he says something disgusting like “poopies” or “pee-pees” we go “EEEwwwww!!”.  Laughing occurs regardless.

Sleepy Time Song

This is a song I sing each night as part of the bed time routine.  I know that the melody for the song comes from a peice of classical music, I will need to look up which peice later.  (la la LA la la LA LA la la LA LA LA LAAAAAA)

It is time to calm yourself and get ready for bed.
It is time to relax now and listen to what is said.
You had a good day sir.
You laughed and played, it was absurd.

It’s the Sleepy Time
The Sleepy Time song.

It is time to close your eyes and dream what dreams may come
You will run through cotton-candied fields under the Sun
Your dreams will last all night
and you will sleep without a fright

It’s the Sleepy Time
The Sleepy Time song.

It is time to rest your head and sleep all the night long
When you wake up you will be refreshed, reborn, and strong
You are loved so-o much
Your mom and dad love you SO much

It’s the Sleepy Time
The Sleepy Time song.

This is the last verse of this song that I will sing to you
It’s almost time for this song to be over a-and through
Good night my son good night
Sleep well and sleep tight

It’s the sleepy Time
The sleepy Time
The go to bed and rest your mind
The sleeping til the morning light song
And now the sleepy time song is done

Sleepy Time Song (Second Revision)

Its time to close your eyes
And rest your weary head

You had a good time sir
and now its time to go to bed.

You ran and jumped and played
with all your friends today.

Its the sleepy time, the sleepy time song

It is time to close your eyes
And dream what dreams may come

You will run through cotton candy fields under the Sun

Your dreams will be so grand
Like Peter Pan in Never land  (never-never land)

But  its the sleepy time,
the sleepy time song

It is time to close your eyes and think of days yet to come
Your growing big and strong and smart
My wonderful son.

You will be a man someday
making mom and dad proud all the way

Its the sleepy time
The sleepy time
The go to bed and rest your mind
The sleeping till the morning light song

And now the sleepy time song is done.

Stinky Feet!!

He’s really really cute
And he’s really really neat.
But Eli Jones has got (hold the got out a while)

STINKY FEET!
