about

mark adamczyk Lake Bluff, Illinois

I've been singing songs and enjoying music with families, professionally, for more than a decade. I'm not so much a performer (I save that for my "grownup" music in the evenings) as I am a facilitator, encouraging and enabling people to sing and make music on their own. Listening to somebody else sing a song is fine, but singing on your own and with your family can be much more fulfilling and fun! ... more

I fed my cat under yonder tree.

The sheep said ba-ah, ba-ah.
The pig said oink, oink, oink, oink.
The cow said mo-o-o-o.
The horse said nay-ay, nay-ay.
The baby said mommy, mommy.
The mommy said shh, shh.
The daddy said honey, honey.
The cat said fiddle-dee-dee.

Track Name: jenny jenkins
oh will you wear blue, oh my dear, oh my dear,

No I won't wear blue 'cause it just won't do--

Something nice and not too chancey.
Will you take me to the dancey?
C'mon, let's go, I'm getting antsy--
Roll, Jennny Jenkins, roll.

Track Name: old dan tucker
Old Dan Tucker was a might man,
he washed his face in a frying pan,
Combed his hair with a wagon wheel,
And died with a toothache in his heel.

Oh get out of the way, Old Dan Tucker!
You're too late to get your supper!
Supper's done and dinner's cooking,
But Old Dan Tucker just stands there...looking.

Old Dan Tucker came into town.
The dogs came running from miles around.
Cats and canaries and goldfish too,
So Old Dan Tucker started a zoo!

Oh get out of the way, Old Dan Tucker!
You're too late to get your supper!
Supper's done and dinner's cooking,
But Old Dan Tucker just stands there....looking.

Old Dan Tucker got on the bus.
The passengers all raised a fuss.
With boots on his head and a hat on the ground
Old Dan Tucker's dressed upside down!

Oh get out of the way, Old Dan Tucker!
You're too late to get your supper!
Supper's done and dinner's cooking,
But Old Dan Tucker just stands there........looking.

Track Name: hey diddle diddle
Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon,
The little dog laughed to see such sport and the dish ran away with the spoon.

Hey, Dish! Come back with that spoon!
Can't you see there's a cow on the moon?
She got stuck when she tried to jump.
Now all I see is the cow's rump!
The dog has hiccups, the cat's out of tune!
I need a new dish, I need a new spoon,
And all because of that cow on the moon....
Track Name: scarborough faire
Are you going to Scarborough Faire?
Parsley sage rosemary and thyme.
Remember me to one who lives there
She was once a good friend of mine.
Track Name: there was a crooked man
There was a crooked man
Who walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence
Upon a crooked stile.
He had a crooked cat
That chased a crooked mouse,
And they all live together
In a little crooked house.
Track Name: the wind blew east
The wind blew east, ooh, ooh.
The wind blew west, ooh, ooh.

Oh, the wind blew the sunshine right down to town,
Oh, the wind blew the sunshine right down to town,
Oh, the wind blew the sunshine right down to town.
Track Name: hush little baby
Hush little baby, don't say a word,
Papa's going to buy you a mockingbird.
If that mockingbird won't sing,
Papa's going to buy you a diamond ring.
If that diamond ring turns brass,
Papa's going to buy you a looking-glass.
If that looking-glass gets broke,
Papa's going to buy you a billy-goat.
If that billy-goat won't pull,
Papa's going to buy you a cart and bull.
If that cart and bull turn over,
Papa's going to buy you a dog named Rover.
If that dog named Rover won't bark,
Papa's going to buy you a horse and cart.
If that horse and cart falls down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.

Goodbye my friends, goodbye,
Goodbye, so long.
We sure had fun but now we're done
So here's the "goodbye" song.
