So when we were kids, we used to listen to tapes by The Saftey Kids and stuff in the car. One of our favorites was an Old MacDonald song, but it wasn't just the basic song. Old MacDonald took a bunch of kids on a hayride around his farm, gathering animals for a party or somehting.
They sung the "Ee-i-ee-i-o" song inbetween finding animals. They would sing "and on his farm he had a Dog, ee-i-ee-i... Oooh!" and then the farmer would say, "look everyone, [my dog is sleeping or something]." and then the animal would sing its own song. the only one i can really remember is the cats "Pretty Kitty, walking by. Pretty kitty, me oh my! Pretty kitty, meow meow meow".
The horse had a song, the dog had a song, the rooster, the cow, and the pig. I'm racking my brain trying to remember the lyrics for theirs, but i can't right now.
I remembered another song! i can't remember which animal though. but it goes "I've got, something to laugh about! Something to laugh about! I feel like laughing don't you?" and goes through a few other sounds. i think it's either the dog or the pig, and one of the lines is something to bark/oink about".
anyway, every time i try to google this it only comes up with the standard "Old MacDonald" song. and nothing related comes up for "Pretty Kitty". Does anyone know what this was called? It was a tape in the early 90's. i'm wondering if it is a CD now that i can buy. I'd love to have it for the nostalgia and for my kids.
It also came with a coloring book with all the animals and their songs written All I remember Is the pretty kitty song too
We had this tape also. My sister got the whole set for Christmas one year...it came with the stuffed animals and everything.
I'm pretty sure it was "something to oink about" because I remember the pig snorting throughout the song. The horse was "horsing around, horsing around. We're just horsing around." I'm pretty sure my sister still has the tape...if not she might remember more of the songs. I'll ask her!
If you check the date-stamp, the OP was posted about 18 months ago. This person most likely is no longer active on this site.
I goggle the lyrics looking for this tape every few months. ive posted on half a dozen forums and no luck in the last few years
just more people looking for the same tape.
I remember singing "it's a dog's life after all...." Childhood memories
I found it! I've been looking for this same tape for years! It's called Old MacDonald's SING-A-LONG! It includes Pretty Kitty by Cassi Kitten.
I bought it on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000PIBPQ0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_mbpXxbCCRDMXW
But here it is on cassette tape: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HSD9BCK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_QcpXxbM4NM57S
I'm thinking of uploading my copy of it to YouTube if anyone's interested in reliving some nostalgia! :3
Hey did you ever upload this to youtube?? My mother was looking for this album for my son.
