Hoot of the Week Jan. 17 2013

Hoot of the Week is “Mary Wore a Red Dress.” Wonderfully simple (another 2 chord song!) and infinitely adaptable. The lyric is:

Mary wore a red dress, red dress, red dress

Mary wore a red dress all day long.

Substitute names, colors, clothes to recognize everyone present. Or talk about what everyone had for breakfast:

Johnny ate some French toast, French toast, French toast

Johnny ate some French toast for breakfast.


We often use this as a greeting song, going around the room and noting everyone’s name and something (s)he is wearing:

Casey wore a striped shirt striped shirt striped shirt

Casey wore a striped shirt all day long.
