My granny keeps pigeons

We often read this poem to groups of children in the 4-6 age group.

We give each child a paper napkin to put on their head and tell them to blow it off (no hands!) each time we say ‘my granny keeps pigeons’ which we stretch out to pppppppiiiiiiiiiiigeons!

Chaos and rudeness – as good as it gets!

My wee granny is a pleasant wee granny
And my pleasant wee granny keeps pigeons
The pigeons paddle in the puddles
And they piddle in the puddles
The pigeons paddle and they piddle in the puddles

My wee granny is a pretty wee granny
And my pretty wee granny keeps pigeons
The pigeons paddle in the puddles
And they pooh in the puddles
The pigeons paddle and they pooh in the puddles

My wee granny is a perfect wee granny
And my perfect wee granny keeps pigeons
The pigeons paddle in the puddles
And they piddle in the puddles
And then they pooh in the puddles as well
The pigeons paddle and they piddle and they pooh in the puddles
My wee granny doesn’t like the smell

I am glad my wee granny doesn’t keep ELEPHANTS!!

    And anyone else who, like AnElephant, has never really achieved a mental age greater than 7.

    If the pigeons would just keep the pooh in the puddles….wouldn’t be so bad.
    It seems they like to fly up and over our auto while we are in the grocery.

    I am looking for the very beginning of your blog so I can start and go in order. Can you put the link here. Well, really don’t care where it begins….as long as it doesn’t end.
