Betty and Bill's Boarding House Blues.

Traditional U.S. Level Four

Betty Botter bought some butter But, she said, this butter's bitter If I put it in my batter It will make my batter bitter. So she bought a bit of butter Better than the bitter butter And it made her batter better. Thus, 'twas better Betty Botter Bought a bit of better butter. Bill had a billboard Bill had a board bill Bill's board bill bored Bill; so, bill sold his billboard to pay his board bill Now Billy's board bill no longer bores Bill. There is a boarding house far, far away. Where they serve ham and eggs three times a day. Oh, how the boarders yell when they hear the dinner bell. Oh, how the eggs do smell three miles away.

Deep in the high mountains and tall trees, somewhere long ago and far away, there was a house of many rooms. The owner began to rent rooms to individuals, who also paid extra for board, which means food. A cook named Betty was hired, and the boarders, who paid for room and board, got what they paid for. Betty, the cook, did not have much imagination. She only knew how to prepare one meal: ham and eggs. For breakfast she served ham and eggs, for lunch she served ham and eggs, for dinner she served ham and eggs. The boarders knew that the dinner bell was about to sound, because the odor of the eggs was so strong, people could smell them three miles away! Bill, one of the boarders, was depressed. He was in the advertising business, and they lived so far away and long ago, that no one had anything to advertise. With no advertising sold, it was very hard for him to pay his bill for room and board. Then it ocurred to him that if he sold his bill board, he would have the money to pay his room and board bill. Will the boarders survive meal time? Will Betty ever bake better biscuits? Will Bill ever pay his board bill? Listen to this song. Try to repeat. Practice Tongue twisters are good practice for fluency

Say, pretty humming bird, tell me your secret, Say, pretty hummingbird, where is your home? Hummingbirds are among the bird world’s best flyers. Only a blur can be seen and a humming be heard when they move their wings, hence their name. Their family consists of nearly 700 species which range in size from the giant hummer of the Andes mountains (8 1/2 inches) to the fairy hummingbird of Cuba (2 1/2 inches), the world’s smallest bird. Some 19 species and subspecies, which range in length from three to five inches, occur in the United States and Canada. The only note of the hummingbird is a single chirp, not louder than that of a cricket. The Ruby Throated Hummingbird is found throughout the United States in the summer months. It is from three to four inches long, and the smaller males glisten with their green emerald and changeable amethyst coloring. They weigh only about as much as a penny, and a half-dollar would cover their nest. Nests are made of plant down, lichen, spider web, and saliva threads. Once or twice a year two tiny white eggs about one-half inch long are laid in the nest saddled on a tree branch between three and fifty feet high. PAGE 14

Vocabulary British dialect: wee = small Onomatopeia: the sound of the hammer a rap-a-tap tapping against the nails the sound of the tit-tat-tee of the hammer's ring as it hits the nails

A rap-a-tap tap, a rap-a-tap tap, Hear the hammer's tit-tat-tee. A rap-a-tap tap, a rap-a-tap tap, Making shoes for you and me.

He puts his needle in and out, hos thread flies to and fro, With his tiny awl he bores the holes; hear the hammer's busy blow. A rap-a-tap tap, a rap-a-tap tap, Hear the hammer's tit-tat-tee.

Cotton Needs Picking Level Four Vocations

Oh, cotton needs picking so bad, Cotton needs picking so bad, Cotton needs picking so bad, I'm going to pick all over this field. This cotton was planted in April, Under the light of the moon, We had a hot, dry summer, That's why it opened so soon.

This was a popular work song in the cotton fields. Such songs served to lighten spirits as well as to pace the work. Cotton is the basis for the cloth most widely used throughout the world. A four or five foot shrub, the cotton plant bears blossoms which produce a boll of aobut two-thirds seed and on-third fiber. The plant needs rich soil, moderate irrigation, and much sun. Eli Whitneys' cotton gin invented in 1793 rmoved the seeds from the fiber and gave the gotton industry great impetus. Until recently all cotton was picked by hand. In 1927 the Rust brothers invented a machine to do the picking. The United sTates ranks among the chief cotton-producing countries.

Oh, cotton needs picking so bad, Cotton needs picking so bad, Cotton needs picking so bad, I'm going to pick all over this field. Oh, hurry up, hurry up, children, Pick that cotton today; The sky, it looks so cloudy, A storm is coming this way. Oh, cotton needs picking so bad, Cotton needs picking so bad, Cotton needs picking so bad, I'm going to pick all over this field.

Night Herding Song Level Four Vocations

Oh, slow up, dogies, quit roving around, You have wandered and trampled all over the ground; Oh, graze along dogies, and feed kind of slow, And don't forever be on the go. Oh, move slow, dogies, move slow, Hi-o, hi-o, hi-o. Lay down, little dogies, and when you are down You can stretch yourselves out, for there's plenty of ground, Stay still, little dogies, for I'm awfully tired, If you run off I will sure get fired, O down, down, dogies, lay down, Hi-o, hi-o, hi-o. Now I've circle herded and night herded too, And to keep you togetherrr's not easy to do, So snore, little dogies, I'll welcome the soound, And you'll be bunched when the daylight comes. Oh, bunch up, dogies, bunch up, Hi-o, hi-o, hi-o. This is a lullaby for cattle. A "dogie" is a stray yearling steer or a motherless calf. These young orphans became restless, particularly at night, and often caused the herd to stampede in the darkness. Singing quieted and soothed them, and helped keep the cowboys awake during the night watches. Harry Stephens , bronco buster and cowboy poet, claimed in a letter to a friend that he wrote this song while night herding in Yellowstone Park Vocabulary Oh, slow up dogies - asking the orphan calves to be calm at night Quit roving around - don't wander - stay where you are Graze along, dogies - asking the orphan calves to eat I will sure get fired - the boss will release me from my contract (I'll lose my job if you wander off) Circle herded - herding cows requires that the cowboy ride his horse around in a circle to keep the cows in a tight grouping at night so they don't wander off. bunch up - group together like a "bunch of grapes" hi-o, hi-o - cowboy music uses many vocables like these nonsense syllables CANTOS PARA TODOS VOLUME IIIs Student Manual Level 4
