Subject: music: Does anyone know this song?
From: the lemonade lady
Date: 19 Mar 09 - 08:35 PM

I think it was sung by Joan Plowright in the 1950's and was recorded onto red vinyl i believe:

Song number 1.

We're a happy family, we're a happy family, and we live at the foot of a big fir tree, Flopsy, Mopsy, nothing could be sweeter, and funny little Cotton Tail, and Peter.

Song number 2.

Why do i do it? What is the cure? My brothers and my sisters find it easy, I am sure. I'd give the world if only I could, Once in a while, be good.

I think a halo would suit me, dangling over my head. When they behold me, they wouldn't scold me, they'd say well done instead...

As you can see they are songs written about the Peter Rabbit stories.

Anyone else know these and who wrote them, and for what?

Sal

Not a Run Melbourne race report

I often get comments about getting up early, training out in the weather all the time, how I must be so 'disciplined', 'dedicated' etc. etc (ahem, LOL ROFL). As you know, this is far from the case. When I was little my Mum used to play us a bedtime story tape of Peter Rabbit. Peter sang a little song about why he got into such mischief. It pretty much explains everything, and goes like this:
Why do I do it?
What is the cure?
My brothers and my sisters find it easy I am sure
That's how I've been ever since I begun
Why do I do it?
Why do I do it?
Why DO I do it?
BECAUSE"

My brother, when a small boy, had a record of the Peter Rabbit story (with those songs), also a companion one with The Tale of Benjamin Bunny. I have always assumed that the songs were written specially for the two records.

Our kids grew up with this cassette, along with the stories of the Flopsy Bunnies, Benjamin Bunny and Mrs Tiggywinkle. Wonderfully singable songs and delightfully told stories. Each one a folk opera!

Just yesterday, we passed it on to our 4 year old grand-daughter Izzy. 'Tis a proper tradition now...

I came on this site after a google search about this very record. I have the original with the 3 other stories but it is very crackly after years of devoted playing as a child. I found myself singing the songs to my own children the other day and decided to see if I could find a better copy to put on CD. You are the answer to my prayers and I am transported back to the past. Thanks for the links.They will continue the legacy in my house. I had no idea so many people remember it like I do.

Listening to Peter Rabbit, I realise that after 30 years I still know EVERY word!

hi there! trying to see if anyone has heard of this song i used to have on vinyl with my little fischer price record player. i believe it was part of the peter rabbit arena, but the only lyrics i can remember are:
    "I climbed up a tree,
    mommy said i shouldn't.
    i can do it here i go
    oops i fell and bumped my toe.

    things sometimes happen
    when you do a "don't"

    cuz when you do do a "don't"
    like Peter Rabbit
    It becomes a habit...."

and that's all i that i can assemble after 25yrs.
anything ring a bell???
thanks in advance!

My wife grew up on these, and so did our own kids!

I digitized the six tales I had on vinyl, and cleaned them up (they now sound very good). I then found a seventh story (Johnny Town-Mouse) on the web.

Finally, I joined them all together into a single audiobook, complete with artwork and chapter markings for each of the seven stories.

These recordings deserve to live on! Here's my audiobook version:

Why do I do it?
What can it be?
There's naughtiness in everyone
But twice as much in me
I'd give the world if only I could,
Now and again, be good.

Why do I do it?
Am I to blame?
The others can be naughty
But it never seems the same.
No one believes I'd like to be good
Never the less I would

I think a halo would suit me,
Dangling over my head.
When they behold me,
They wouldn't scold me,
They'd say well done instead...

Why do I do it?
What is the cure?
My brothers and my sisters find it easy I am sure
That's how I've been ever since I begun
Why do I do it?
Why do I do it?

Does anyone remember the song -

follow your heart,
follow it blindly,
and it will take you
on a journey to a star,
a million, million miles
need not seem very far,
so follow your heart,
and there you are.

I grew up listening to Peter Rabbit tales and for years now this song keeps on popping into my head. Where can I find the full song lyrics as I'm sure I have remembered parts wrong and I'm sure it must have been longer than that??
Also, does anyone know who sang it?

My wife has just retired after 27 years of child-minding, and we started going through all the equipment we had collected during those years. Amongst the things we found was the LP 'The Beatrix Potter Stories - 1', which are The Tale of Peter Rabbit, The Tale of Benjamin Bunny, The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies and The Tale of Mrs Tiggy-Winkle. I've not played it but it looks reasonable, and the sleeve is quite good apart from some child having underlined all the titles, without a ruler.
If anyone would like it and sends me their address they can have it for the cost of the postage, first come first served.

Does anyone know any of the lyrics from the other Vivian Leigh. Beatrix Potter records, e..g I used to love "Here's my sitting and thinking spot", from Mrs Tiggy Winkle.

Further to my last post, I've just seen chelseachick1905's link to the David Croft site, where you can play the full recordings of all the Vivian Leigh Beatrix Potter. But I can't make out one of the words in the recording of Here's my Sitting and Thinking Place. These are the lyrics with the word I can't make out denoted by question marks - any ideas?

Here's my sitting and thinking place,
Hidden at the bottom of the hill;
Here I can wonder any time of day,
Thinking of this and that,
With the hen and the robin and the dear old cat.

Here's my sitting and thinking place,
Everything is beautifully still;
No one to ???? all my thoughts away.
They're welcome to have a chat,
With the hen and the robin and the dear old cat.

No one to ???? all my thoughts away

Not clear, is it? It sounds as if it could be No-one to frighten all my thoughts away

I know these songs, but I'm sorry I don't know who wrote or performed them. I heard them on vinyl more than 30 years. I'd love to find the recording so I can play it for my children.

What I wonder is, how do you know it?

Climbing up a tree, mommy said I shouldn't. I can do it here I go, whoops I fell and hurt my toe. Things sometimes happen when you do a don't.

Chorus: Cuz when you do, do a don't.. like Peter Rabbit, it becomes a habit, when you do a don't cuz when you do, do a don't you may regret it, you won't forget it, when you do a don't. (or you think you hafta, you're sorry afta, don't you do a don't)

Eating all the fudge, mommy said I couldn't. It taste good cuz it's so thick, oops my belly I feel sick. Things sometimes happen when you do a don't.

Chorus:

Open mommies drawers, mommy said I shouldn't, took me out right from my place, couldn't get it off my face. Things sometimes happen, when you do a don't.

Chorus:

Pull that doggies tale, mommy said I shouldn't. It got mad and snapped at me, then I went a climbed a tree, then I fell and hurt my toe, that's the way this story goes. Things sometimes happen when you do a don't.

Oh....my....goodness, I listened to these stories and songs as a child & sung to my own children. I still have the vinyl but haven't been able to play for years. I am still singing the tiggy winkle cup of tea song every time I make one. I have been googling the wrong thing for years to no avail but today I tried song words & this thread popped up, I read comments and as I write this I am listening to these beautifully spoken & sung stories after downloading from iTunes after inputting Beatrix Potter/Vivien Leigh. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for this info, I don't know why it means so much to me but it does & so few people had this so thought I was nuts!! Mayb I am but who cares I can listen to them again x
