Blueberries for Asher
My 13 month-old son loves to eat blueberries! I also wanted to write a song that helps teach children about subtraction I don't have the music figured out yet, but I hope you enjoy the lyrics.
Little Asher eat your food
It will put you in a good mood
ten blueberries on your plate
Now eat two and you have eight
Eight berries are left for you
Now you know just what to do
Eat two more, there are no tricks
All you have left are six
Six berries lookin so good
Eat them up just like you should
You eat two are there any more?
Oh, why yes! You still have four
Four berries blue as can be
Full of juice, they’re so yummy
Gobble two up, you still have a few!
All that’s left right now is two!
Two blueberries sit alone,
My oh my how you have grown
Now eat two, what have you done?
All that’s left is zilch, nada, none!
No blueberries. Oh you look sad,
Instead of crying just ask dad
He will bring you more again
Oh, wow look, now there are ten!
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
