Hello family, I'm super excited to be here this week again with a mix of some nice nursery rhymes for kids.
For this week's theme titled MUSIC FOR CHILDREN given by my good friend @aly.squid , I bring to us a mix of my 3 favourite nursery rhymes while growing up.
One sweet fact about these songs is how they drive encouragement, and open us to wide imagination of possibilities. The first song was taught by my Music teacher back in Nursery/primary school. He called it the Encouragement song. I remember how we would sing this song with our hands firmly placed proudly at our backs. Oh, the joy and happiness we felt as though we were actually walking up the mountain side.
The second song is the popular MR. MARK ANTHONY, although we sang it the wrong way while growing up. We remixed it to be MR. MACARONI, I guess we just loved eating macaroni so much that we had to find a song for it😂
Finally, the third song is STANDARD LIVING which was used to teach us about the various professions we have like Doctors, bankers, lawyers and many more.
Join me and enjoy these beautiful songs as I sing with my acoustic guitar.
I long to scale the outmost height
Along the mountain side.
As long as I go,
I love to see my hands are at my back.
(Shouts for Joy)
My hands are at my back.
Mr Mike Anthony riding on a bicycle,
Would you like to carry me, Mr Mike Anthony?
Jump on, Cecilia jump on, Cecilia jump on
Cecilia said Mr. Mike Anthony, Jump on
I am a Doctor in my country
Everybody knows me well
If you look me up and down
You will know that it's true
Standard living, standard living *10
