Today is Bean Day!

Yay for beans! Not only are they an excellent source of fiber, they also provide a great way to clear a room!

Here’s a fun folk song about having beans in your ears. The video is old, but hey older things can be cool too.


Beans in My Ears
(Len Chandler)

My mommy said not to put beans in my ears!
Beans in my ears! Beans in my ears!
My mommy said not to put beans in my ears!
B-E-A-N-S in my ears!

Now why would I want to put beans in my ears?
Beans in my ears! Beans in my ears!
Now why would I want to put beans in my ears?
B-E-A-N-S in my ears!

You can’t hear the teacher (your parents) with beans in your ears!
Beans in your ears! Beans in your ears!
You can’t hear the teacher (your parents) with beans in your ears!
B-E-A-N-S in your ears!

Hey, Charlie, let’s go and put beans in our ears!?
Beans in our ears? Beans in our ears!
Hey, Charlie, let’s go and put beans in our ears!?
B-E-A-N-S in our ears!

WHAT’S THAT YOU SAY? Let’s put beans in our ears!
Beans in our ears? Beans in our ears!
WHAT’S THAT YOU SAY? Let’s put beans in our ears!
B-E-A-N-S in our ears!

YOU’LL HAVE TO SPEAK UP, I’VE GOT BEANS IN MY EARS!
Beans in your ears? Beans in my ears!
YOU’LL HAVE TO SPEAK UP, I’VE GOT BEANS IN MY EARS!
B-E-A-N-S in her ears!

Hey, mommy we’ve gone and put beans in our ears!
Beans in our ears! Beans in our ears!
Hey, mommy we’ve gone and put beans in our ears!
B-E-A-N-S in our ears!

That’s nice, boys, just don’t put those beans in your ears!
Beans in our ears! Beans in our ears!
That’s nice, boys, just don’t put those beans in your ears!
B-E-A-N-S in our ears!

I think that all grownups have beans in their ears!
Beans in their ears! Beans in their ears!
I think that all grownups have beans in their ears!
B-E-A-N-S in their ears!

Okay, one more thing.

This is a silly rhyme my grandmother taught me:

Beans, beans the magical fruit
The more you eat, the more you toot
The more you toot the happier you feel
So let’s eat beans with every meal

And one of my co-workers taught me this one:

Beans, beans, the musical fruit,
Make your pants go tooty-toot toot.
The more you eat, the better you feel,
So eat beans for every meal.

Have fun today and make sure to eat your beans!
