Thread Name: songs suitable for illustration
Subject: RE: songs suitable for illustration
I have a children's song that I wrote many years ago, and sang to exhaustion that I always thought should be illustrated. Only has four verses though, and I'll be darned if I'll think up six more.. The Chorus is:

Robert's roosted is red and his dog Jack is black
And they never talk back to their Mother
And when it would rain, they would never complain
They would sit and they'd play by the hour

The verses are about playing by imagining that they're in a circus, at a big parade, in a storm on the sea, and finally curling up on the floor and going to sleep.
