Sandwich Songs

People who live outside of our home probably don't realize that I sing an inane ditty when I make Mr. Honey's sandwiches. I can't remember where I learned it, but putting Miracle Whip on bread always brings out this song in me:

Sandwiches are beautiful!
Sandwiches are fine!
I like sandwiches
I eat them all the time
I eat them for my breakfast
And I eat them for my lunch
If I had a thousand sandwiches
I'd eat them all at once!

Sometimes, for a change of pace, I sing this one:

I'm a little acorn brown
Lying on the cold, cold ground
Everybody steps on me
That is why I'm cracked you see
I'm a nut
I'm a nut
I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm a nut.

Sometimes I think I have 'way too much fun making sandwiches. ;o)

(I get this characteristic from my mother, who, as we all know, is her own best entertainment. Love you, Mom.)

Don't forget the BOLOGNA song from the commercial...
My Boloney has a first name is O-S-C-A-R. My Boloney has a second name it's M-A-Y-E-R. Oh, I love to eat it every day and if you ask me why I'll say, cuz Oscar Mayer has a way with B-O-L-O-G-N-A!

I'm also remembering the "Everything's better with Blue Bonnet on-it!" But I can't remember the rest. I sing that sometimes when buttering bread for grilled chese, though I don't use margarine.

And don't forget the peanut butter song, it's more of a chant..."Peanut, Peanut Butter, and Jelly and Jelly"

Ooh, ooh! You made me think of another song. This is Mr. Honey's own song he made up himself for the kids when they were little:

Peanut butter and jelly!
That's what I like in my belly!
Peanut butter and
Peanut butter and
Peanut butter and jelly!

And can't forget the Suzuki Peanut Butter Sandwich Song:

Peanut butter sandwich
Is my fav'rite sandwich
I made one for lunch and
I made one for breakfast...

(I don't remember the rest!)

Now I remember where I heard that song! It was on one of those 'intermission' type segments on "Arthur" (PBS) several years back.
