Thunder Cake
Inspired by the book Thunder Cake by Patricia Polacco
Song by Sam Jones


This song is available on Sam Jones' Environmental Songs From Popular Children’s Books.

Lyrics:

(to tune of “Yankee Doodle”)

Grandma looked on the horizon and a storm was coming
The thunder rumbled loud and strong like a million drummers drumming

With the right ingredients ,Thunder Cake is yum-yum
But you need to have it baked before the storm comes
ZIP went the lightning! 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 BAROOOOOOOOOM!

The child was afraid of thunder and it made her shake
Grandma said, “Don’t worry, child. Let’s make a Thunder Cake!”
With the right ingredients, Thunder Cake is yum-yum
But you need to have it baked before the storm comes
ZIP went the lightning! 1-2-3-4-5-6-7 BOOM BA-BOOOOOM!

First they gathered up some eggs from mean old Nellie Peck hen
After Kick Cow gave them milk then to the shed they went
With the right ingredients, Thunder Cake is yum-yum
But you need to have it baked before the storm comes
ZIP went the lightning! 1-2-3-4-5-6 CRACKLE, CRACKLE BOOOOM,
KA-BOOOOOOOM!

Next they got some chocolate and some sugar and some flour
But that thunderstorm was getting closer by the hour
With the right ingredients, Thunder Cake is yum-yum
But you need to have it baked before the storm comes
ZIP went the lightning! 1-2-3-4-5 KA- BANG BOOOOAROOOOM!

Three overripe tomatoes was the main secret ingredient
The child picked them for Grandma because she was so obedient
With the right ingredients, Thunder Cake is yum-yum
But you need to have it baked before the storm comes
ZIP went the lightning! 1-2-3-4 KA-BA-BOOOOOOOOOOM!

Grandma taught her granddaughter that she was really brave
And all her fears of thunderstorms just simply went away
With the right ingredients, Thunder Cake is yum-yum
But you need to have it baked before the storm comes
ZIP went the lightning! 1-2-3 RRRUMBLE! CRASH!
WE MADE IT!!!
