Flannel Friday: Aiken Drum

11 May

I really really really wanted to be part of the first flannel friday of the new website, so I went into my archives and found this flannel that I made years ago. Aiken Drum seems to be the original version of what became Flip Flap Jack (in my opinion). Here are the parts: A moon, spaghetti hair, broccoli ears, meatball eyes, cheese nose, pizza mouth, and a ladle (you can use different foods, but the moon and ladle are standard):

Here’s the song:

There was a man lived in the moon, in the moon, in the moon

There was a man lived in the moon and his name was Aiken Drum.

And he played upon a ladle, a ladle, a ladle,

He played upon a ladle and his name was Aiken Drum.

(continues with these additional verses:)

His hair was made of spaghetti…

His eyes were made of meatballs…

His ears were made of broccoli…

His mouth was made of pizza…

His nose was made of cheese…

We add each food piece with each verse and here’s how it looks all put together:

The spaghetti hair is yarn glued to a piece of felt. For those of you playing ukulele or guitar, you can find the chords here.

The round up will today be hosted by Sharon at Rain Makes Applesauce. If you have a flannel friday post to share, be sure to add the link in the comments to her round up post, as, per our new procedures, that’s the ONLY place it’ll get picked up. Thanks!
