Lyrics

Oh when you wake up in the mornin' at a quarter to one
and you just want to have a little fun.
You iron your clothes, you iron your clothes.

Oh when you wake up in the mornin' at a quarter to two
and you can't think of a thing to do.
You scrub the floor, you scrub the floor.

Oh when you wake up in the mornin' at a quarter to three
and your mind starts hummin' fiddle dee dee.
You shake the mat, you shake the mat.

Oh when you wake up in the mornin' at a quarter to four
and you've just heard a knock on the door.
You brush your teeth, you brush your teeth.

Oh when you wake up in the mornin' at a quarter to five
and you just want to feel a little alive.
You wash yourself, you wash yourself.

Oh when you wake up in the mornin' at a quarter to six
and you've just had a plate of weetbix.
You rub your tum, yum yum yum!
You rub your tum, yum yum yum!

You've done your chores.
Hey you've done your chores!

Teachers

Music

  • Divide the children into two groups and allocate music sounds e.g. body percussion (e.g. slap thigh), found sound (e.g. tap pencil on desk or floor) or instruments (e.g. maracas) - one group plays along with the vocals in the song and the other group plays along with the instrumental music in the song. Play the song again and swap.

Drama

  • Guess the time? Listen to the song. Mime one of the actions - can children remember the time that suits the action?

Dance

  • What is a locomotor move? A movement in which the body travels across space (running, creeping, rolling). What is a non-locomotor move? A movement in which the body remains anchored to one spot by a body part (for example, bending, twisting, stretching) - what kinds of movements can you spot in the song?
  • Listen to "Do Your Chores" and ask children to suggest ideas for moves to go with each verse.
  • Watch the video song and compare the actions with their own ideas.
