Songs for Primary Students

Walking along with a bucket the other day, the song, There’s a hole in My Bucket came into my mind. As I was singing it, It dawned on me just how repetitious this song is. I immediately started playing with it to see if I could rewrite the song for Indonesian students. 

As our students learned the target structure ‘terlalu besar’ in term 1, this could be an extension idea for next year when I revisit this story! 

Here is a version using that target structure:

Saya lapar! Pak Agus, Pak Agus, Pak Agus. Saya lapar Pak Agus, Pak Agus. Saya lapar!

Ayo makan, Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza. Ayo makan, Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, makan!

Makan apa? Pak Agus, Pak Agus, Pak Agus. Makan apa Pak Agus, Pak Agus, makan apa?

Makan pizza, Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, Makan pizza Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza makan pizza!

Terlalu besar! Pak Agus, Pak Agus, Pak Agus. Terlalu besar Pak Agus, Pak Agus, terlalu besar!

Makan spaghetti, Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, Makan pizza Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza makan spaghetti!

Terlalu panas! Pak Agus, Pak Agus, Pak Agus. Terlalu besar Pak Agus, Pak Agus, terlalu panas!

Makan eskrim, Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, Makan pizza Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza makan es krim!

Terlalu dingin! Pak Agus, Pak Agus, Pak Agus. Terlalu besar Pak Agus, Pak Agus, terlalu dingin!

Makan permen, Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, Makan pizza Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza makan permen!

Terlalu kecil! Pak Agus, Pak Agus, Pak Agus. Terlalu besar Pak Agus, Pak Agus, terlalu kecil!

Makan nasi Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, Makan pizza Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza makan nasi!

Dan kecap manis!! Pak Agus, Pak Agus, Pak Agus! Dan kecap manis Pak Agus, Pak Agus kecap manis!! 

Ya enak!! Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza! Ya enak Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza Enak!!

Terima kasih! Pak Agus, Pak Agus, Pak Agus. Terima kasih Pak Agus, Pak Agus Terima kasih!!

Sama sama Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza, Sama sama Bu Eliza, Bu Eliza sama sama!!
