Sipping Cider

Friday, November 05, 2010 - Family, Me

Is something that I’ve never done. No, really. I’ve never tasted cider. I’ve always been curious about it, but I’ve never had the opportunity to try it.

However, that’s not what this post is about.

This post is about an echo song called “Sipping Cider.” My mom taught it to me when I was much younger and the song is still totally cool and fun to sing. But you need at least two people to sing it properly.

Here are the lyrics:

The cutest boy…
the cutest boy…
I ever saw…
I ever saw…
Was sipping cider, through a straw…
through a straw.
The cutest boy I ever saw was sipping cider through a straw.
right through a straw.

I asked him if…
I asked him if…
He’d show me how…
he’d show me how…
To sip my cider through a straw…
through a straw…
I asked him if he’d show me how to sip my cider through a straw.
right through a straw.

He said he would…
He said he would…
He’d show me how…
he’d show me how…
To sip my cider through a straw…
through a straw…
He said he would, he’d show me how to sip my cider through a straw.
right through a straw.

So cheek to cheek…
so cheek to cheek…
And jaw to jaw…
and jaw to jaw…
We sipped our cider through a straw…
through a straw…
So cheek to cheek and jaw to jaw we sipped our cider through a straw.
right through a straw.

Then suddenly…
then suddenly…
That straw did slip…
that straw did slip…
And I sipped cider through his lips…
through his lips…
Then suddenly that straw did slip and I sipped cider through his lips.
right through his lips.

That’s how I got…
that’s how I got…
My mother-in-law….
my mother-in-law…
And sixteen kids to call me Ma.
call me Ma…
That’s how I got my mother-in-law and sixteen kids to call me Ma.
to call me Ma.

This is the end…
this is the end…
There ain’t no more….
there ain’t no more…
‘bout sipping cider through a straw.
through a straw…
This is the end there ain’t no more ‘bout sipping cider through a straw.
right through a straw.

If you don’t know the tune, check out this YouTube video.  The lyrics are different and the video is really goofy, but the tune is dead on!  :-D

Happy singing!
