Do the Funky Chicken (Duck, Pig, Cow ...)

Rufus Thomas - Old McDonald Had a Farm (Pt. 2)

As discussed in the previous post, today's selection is Rufus Thomas' funky "Part Two" version of "Old McDonald" from Do the Funky Chicken. After a scatted intro, the band gets to business and Rufus romps along. Get your kids for this one, because they know the song and they'll love the little "country" interludes between verses. I bet, though, by the end of the tune, when the groove is cooking, the horns are blaring and Rufus is scatting all over the place, you'll be getting down yourself!

(Look out later this weekend or early next week for Episode #4 of the podcast!)
