"Run, run, as fast as you can. You can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man."
I am always singing this little song and it mystifies my husband. He says, "What IS that song. That is not a real song. Nobody knows that song. Where do you get these songs?"
The boys are sitting at the kitchen table eating gingerbread men right now in the typical "boy" way. In other words, they are making the gingerbread men protest in a little squeaky voice. "No! Not my arm! Don't eat my arm!" "Crunch crunch crunch." "Oh no! Now I have only one arm...don't eat my other arm!" You get the picture.
Perhaps this behavior was somewhat prompted by the fact that before I gave them the gingerbread men I ran around the first floor with them singing "run run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the gingerbread man."
Anyway, I was inspired to hop on YouTube and I FOUND IT! (I Love YouTube. Thank you NathanScott57, whoever you are.) I had this book and record when I was a little girl.
I looked today and was able to buy the book/record combos on Ebay or Amazon. Amazon also had the MP3 (because we no longer have a record player) available for download. Sister and Brother, I ALSO was able to get "Casper and the Demon of Darkness" and "Jack and the Beanstalk." Ahh, memories :) Sister, I found "Tina the Ballerina" too, but she was too expensive. I'll keep my eye out for one for Token Girl.
