Aikendrum

aikendrum

A good friend of mine introduced me to this Scottish folk song. There are many versions of this song. I like the spaghetti version .

I also love how you can get the kids involved by getting them to choose what Aikendrum is made of.

Check out the link below to hear the tune & see an example of kids creating their own lyrics. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnW6Ei43rvw&feature=youtube_gdata_player

After they sing the song, students can create their own pictures of Aikendrum & label what he is made of.


Aikendrum Lyrics:

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 Aikendrum.

And he played upon a ladle, a ladle, a ladle. He played upon a ladle and
his name was Aikendrum.

And his hair was made of spaghetti, spaghetti, spaghetti. His hair was
made of spaghetti and his name was Aikendrum.

And his eyes were made of meatballs, meatballs, meatballs. His eyes were made of meatballs and his name was Aikendrum.

And he played upon a ladle, a ladle, a ladle. He played upon a ladle and
his name was Aikendrum.

And his nose was made of cheese, cheese, cheese. His nose was made of cheese and his name was Aikendrum.

And his mouth was made of pizza, pizza, pizza. His mouth was made of
pizza and his name was Aikendrum.

And he played upon a ladle, a ladle, a ladle. He played upon a ladle and
his name was Aikendrum.

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 Aikendrum.
