Pickin' and Grinnin'
Teaching Table Manners to Children
Caroline and Danny


This song is available on Caroline and Danny's Street Smarts.



My mom called me in to have some lunch
I picked up my sandwich and started to munch
She said “Don’t be an animal and just dig in
Wait for all to be served before you begin.”

Chorus:
No pickin’, no drippin’, no double dippin’
No slurpin’, no burpin’, no French Fry flippin’
No screechin’, no scratchin’ like animals in the zoo
Use your table manners, you’ll know what to do.

At Thanksgiving my family raced to their seats
Mom said, “Don’t be turkeys and gobble the meat
Remember to take time to just say ‘please’
As you ask someone to pass the peas.”

Chorus

Instrumental break

When I go out to eat at a fancy place
And there’s a milk moustache smeared across my face
Mom says, “Don’t wipe your face with your arm or your sleeve
That napkin in your lap is what you need.”

Chorus

When I’m with my pals and we’re in a rush
Hear a voice in my head that starts to fuss
Don’t sound like a pig when you start to eat
Chew and swallow your food before you speak

Chorus:
No pickin’, no drippin’, no double dippin’
No slurpin’, no burpin’, no French Fry flippin’
No screechin’, no scratchin’ like animals in the zoo
Use your table manners, you’ll know what to do.
