The Button Factory Song

Hi, my name is Joe.

I have a wife and six kids and I work in a button factory.

One day, my boss said, “Are you busy.” I said, “no.”

He said, “Then (push or turn) the button with your arm.”

(the kids love love to pretend they are doing this).

Repeat with: other arm, foot, other foot, head (at the same time) The last part would be My boss said, “Are you busy?”

I said, “YES!”
