Ring-a-Ding – August 1, 2012

Song: It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing-Thing Time
We’re going to sing a song
And it won’t take long
It’s a Ring-A-Ding-A-Sing Thing Time

Mother and Father and Uncle John
Went to the market one by one
And Mother fell off…
And Father fell off…
But Uncle John went on and on and on and on…
