Popcorn on a Train

December 5th, 2010

At school, one of Miss Mouse’s favorite games is Popcorn on a Train. Basically, all the kids sit on the ground, then the teacher calls out the ditty below, and the kid who is featured gets up to bust a move.

This morning, Miss Mouse lined up her Christmas stuffed animals and began calling on them in turn to “do their thing.” After a few false starts with Puppy, she was off and rolling.

She’s a bit hard to understand on the video, so here’s the translation:

Popcorn on a train!
Let ____ (puppy, snowman, bear, Miss Mouse, etc.) do his thing!
With a boom da da da da da,
Boom da da da da da,
Boom da da da da da,
He did it!
