Musette in D (Bach) | Easy Piano Sheet Music

In 1725, Anna Magdalena,  Johann Sebastian Bach’s wife, was presented with the Anna Magdalena Bach Notebook, which contains a collection of Baroque dances such as the minuet, gavotte, polonaise, march, rondeau, and musette– and includes the following Musette in D, BWV Anh. 126. These Baroque dances were used as introductions to Baroque-style, two-voice counterpoint.  It is believed that the pieces in the notebook were composed by not only Johann Sebastian Bach, but also by many other Baroque composers like Johann Christian Bach, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Johann Gottfried Bernhard, Johann Gottfried Heinrich, Christian Petzold, Georg Böhm, François Couperin and others. Musette in D remains one of the most popular pieces among classical musicians.

Many historical scholars believe the song was originally composed somewhere between the 16th and 17th century.

There have been many different versions to the lyrics of the song in both the Catalan and English language. Several arrangements are also available, but the style of the piece is generally Baroque and the key is usually in A minor.

Lyrics for ‘Fum, Fum, Fum’

On December five and twenty,
Fum, fum, fum.
On December five and twenty,
Fum, fum, fum.
For a Blessed Babe was born
Upon this day at break of morn.
In a manger poor and lowly
Lay the Son of God most holy,
Fum, fum, fum.
Holidays the good Lord gave us,
Fum, fum, fum!
Holidays the good Lord gave us,
Fum, fum, fum!
Summer feasting suits us best,
Yet, withal His name be blest.
He who doth our needs remember,
Sent us Christmas in December,
Fum, fum, fum!

Little birds out in the wood,
Sing fum, fum, fum!
Little birds out in the wood,
Sing fum, fum, fum!
All your fledglings on the bough,
O leave them now, O leave them now.
Make a soft and downy nest
So the newborn babe may rest
Sing fum, fum, fum!

Little stars up in the sky,
Sing fum, fum, fum!
Little stars up in the sky,
Sing fum, fum, fum!
See the little Jesus crying,
Don’t you cry, O don’t you cry,
Fill the night with twinkling light.
Oh wondrous stars that shine so bright,
Sing fum, fum, fum!

{Original English version]

On December five and twenty
fum, fum, fum.
On December five and twenty,
fum, fum fum.
Oh, a child was born this night
So rosy white, so rosy white
Son of Mary, virgin holy
In a stable, mean and lowly,
fum, fum, fum.
On December five and twenty
fum, fum, fum.
On December five and twenty
fum, fum, fum.
Comes a most important day
Let us be gay, let us be gay.
We go first to church and then we
Have the sweetest buns and candy,
fum, fum, fum, fum, fum.
God will send us days of feasting
fum, fum, fum.
God will send us days of feasting
fum, fum, fum.
Both in hot months and in cold
for young and old, for young and old.
We will tell the holy story
Ever singing of his glory,
fum, fum, fum.

[1909 Catalan folk song version]

A vinticinc de Desembre,
fum, fum, fum,
ha nascut un minyonet
ros i blanquet,
fill de la Verge Maria;
n’es nat en una establia,
fum, fum, fum.

Aquí dalt de la montanya,
fum, fum, fum,
si n’hi han dos pastorets
abrigadets
amb la pell i la samarra;
mengen ous i botifarra,
fum, fum, fum.

Qui’n dirà més gran mentida?
fum, fum, fum,
Ja’n respon el majoral
amb gran cabal:
— Jo’n faré dèu mil camades
amb un salt totes plegades,
fum, fum, fum.

Ja’n va respondre en Diego:
fum, fum, fum,
— Bé t’enganyes per meitat,
tu, Escarbat,
que tu sempre per fingir-te
jo mentida tinc de dir-te,
fum, fum, fum.

Les llangonices d’aquell,
fum, fum, fum,
bé sé prou qui les ne trau,
i a mi ja’m plau,
i el vi dolç de la padrina
jo me’l bec per medecina,
fum, fum, fum.

A vinticinc de Desembre,
fum, fum, fum,
es el dia de Nadal
molt principal;
quan eixirem de maitines
farem bones restolines,
fum, fum, fum.

Déu nos dó unes santes festes,
fum, fum, fum,
amb temps de fret i calor,
i molt millor
fent-ne de Jesús memoria
lo tindrem sempre a la Gloria
fum, fum, fum.

Boom, Boom, Ain’t It Great to Be Crazy | Free Easy Piano Sheet Music

Boom, Boom, Ain’t It Great to Be Crazy is a popular kids’ song with silly lyrics and is sometimes accompanied by funny actions. The exact origin of the song has been hard to pinpoint, but the earliest log that was made in the Catalog of Copyright Entries credits the words to Josephine Moore Proffitt and the music to Sidney Lippman. However, in a February 1953 copy of Billboard magazine, a record release has also been listed under Ginny Gibson. The song is believed to have been around and in the public domain for a much longer time before any of these artists decided to create their own version of it and place it under copyright.

In more modern times, the song is popularized as a children’s song mostly because of Barney. Its first appearance in the Barney franchise was in Barney & the Backyard Gang, originally released as a Neiman Marcus exclusive in 1991 but had a wider release in the following year. In Rock with Barney, which is the eighth and final video in the series, the Backyard Gang and Barney are taken to a studio where one of the gang’s mother works. Using their imagination and some props, they set-up a make-believe show complete with commercials. The song Boom, Boom, Ain’t It Great to Be Crazy was the last song performed in the show.

Lyrics for ‘Boom, Boom, Ain’t It Great to Be Crazy’

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
Giddy and foolish the whole day through,
Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

A horse and a flea and three blind mice,
Sat on a curbstone shooting dice,
The horse he slipped and fell on the flea,
“Whoops,” said the flea, “There’s a horse on me!”

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
Giddy and foolish the whole day through,
Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

Way down South where bananas grow,
A flea stepped on an elephant’s toe,
The elephant cried, with tears in his eyes,
“Why don’t you pick on someone your own size?”

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
Giddy and foolish the whole day through,
Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

Way up North where there’s ice and snow,
There lived a penguin and his name was Joe,
He got so tired of black and white,
He wore pink slacks to the dance last night!

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
Giddy and foolish the whole day through,
Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

Eli, Eli had some socks,
A dollar a pair and a nickel a box,
The more you wear ’em the better they get,
And you put ’em in the water and they don’t get wet!

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
Giddy and foolish the whole day through,
Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

Called myself on the telephone,
Just to hear that golden tone,
Asked myself out for a date,
Said be ready ’bout half-past eight!

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
Giddy and foolish the whole day through,
Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

Took myself to the picture show,
Sat myself on the very last row,
Wrapped my arms around my waist,
Got so fresh I slapped my face!

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
Giddy and foolish the whole day through,
Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

[Alternative verses]

There was an old doctor and his name was Peck.
Fell down the well and broke his neck
Served him right, he was doing wrong.
Should have tended to the sick, and let the well alone.

Johnny, Johnny went out west,
Where he thought the food was best.
Now they lay him down to rest,
With a concrete meatball on his chest.

[Additional verses from the Rock with Barney version]

At the TV studio, we got to play,
used our imagination with Barney all day.
We danced with ducks,
Had fun with fruit,
Then Barney led us in a flag salute.

We got to play, down by the bay,
Made music at an island hideaway.
We “rock and rolled,”
Sang a lullaby,
It was such fun, but it’s time to fly.

Down By the Station | Easy Piano Sheet Music

The popular children’s song Down By the Station (which also goes by the title Down at the Station) was written by Lee Ricks and Bulee “Slim” Gaillard in 1948 (though some say a version of the lyrics was already in print in a copy of Recreation magazine in 1931). The most famous recording of the song was by Thomas Francis “Tommy” Dorsey Jr., an American jazz trombonist, conductor, composer, and bandleader during the big band era of music.

Whether done intentionally or unintentionally, the melody of Down by the Station resembles the chorus of Alouette, a folk song commonly sung by French-speaking children in Canada. There are also some similarities with The Itsy-Bitsy Spider.

Down by the station,
Early in the morning,
See the little puffer bellies,
All in a row.

See the engine driver,
Pull the little handle,
Chug, chug, woo, woo,
Off we go!

See the little pufferbellies
All in a row

See the station master
Turn the little handle
Chug chug puff puff
Off they go

Early in the morning
See the shiny train cars
All in a row

Waitin’ to get hitched up
And go on their adventure
Chug chug puff puff

Early in the morning
See my favorite engine
Ready to tow

All the other train cars
Will follow on behind him
Chug chug puff puff

Early in the morning
Climb on aboard
And hear the whistle blow

Please take my ticket

Doctor Foster | Free Easy Piano Sheet Music by Mother Goose

The modern form of the English nursery rhyme Doctor Foster was first published in 1844. It is number 19288 in the Roud Folk Song Index. There have been several speculations as to who the rhyme is referring to. Some theories include Doctor Foster being a representation of King Edward I of England, while others believe it is William Laud (Archbishop of Canterbury from 1633 until about 1640), while others still believe it is from an incident that happened to the title character in the Doctor Faustus play by Christopher Marlowe.

Entry Kentry (Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme) | Easy Piano Sheet Music

Entry Kentry is a Mother Goose rhyme composed by Pennsylvania-born Andrew Fling. “Mother Goose rhymes” is a term that emerged around the later part the 18th or early 19th century and is used interchangeably with “nursery rhymes”. These are collections of traditional songs, chants, games, and poems intended for young children. Many argue, however, that they always seem to have hidden meanings behind them or allude to something else completely different from the topic of the rhyme.

The earliest recordings for these rhymes were done during the 16th century in English plays. Prior to that time, they were passed down purely through oral tradition, which made it necessary that the verses were short and/or easy to remember. The most popular rhymes seem to come from the 17th and 18th centuries with the publication of the first English compilation Tommy Thumb’s Song Book happening during that time.
