Are you familiar with, “Want to read a book? Book done read.”?

I just received this email from Jennifer…

My husband has started repeating the following rhyme (a call and response type of thing) with our 3 children. He is sure that it is “real”? and thinks he has seen it in print. I have never heard it. Unfortunately, he can’t remember all of it. Any takers? Here is what I know…

“Want to read a book? Book done read.
Want to go to bed? Bed not made.
Want some lemonade? Lemonade sour.
Want to climb a tower? Tower too high.
Want a piece of pie? Pie too sweet.
Want a piece of meat? Meat too tough.”?

…..this is the part he can’t remember…

And then…

“Want to say Goodbye? Goodbye.”?

If anyone is familiar with this rhyme, please comment below.

Thanks!

Lisa

    I have continued with this search since I wrote in, and here is what I have come up with through various sources…

    Pie too sweet

    Wanna piece o’ meat

    Meat too tough

    Wanna ride a bus

    Bus too full

    Wanna ride a bull

    Bull too black

    Want my money back

    Money too green

    Wanna jellybean

    Bean don’t cook

    Wanna read a book

    Book’s done read

    Wanna go to bed

    Bed not made

    Want some lemonade

    Lemonade sour

    Wanna climb a tower

    Tower too high

    Wanna say goodbye

    “GOODBYE”?

    There is an intro that starts out “ABC it’s as easy as 123…..”?

    don’t remember the rest.

  2. Jessica Says:

    ok well, my kids taught me a different version (it has hand movements):

    oo, ah
    i wanna piece of pie
    pie too sweet, wanna piece of meat
    meat too tough, wanna ride a bus
    bus too full, wanna ride a bull
    bull too fat, want my money back
    money too green, wanna jelleybean
    jelly bean not cooked, wanna read a book
    book not read, wanna go to bed
    bed not made, want some lemonade
    lemonade too sour, wanna take a shower
    shower too cold, wanna piece of gold
    gold too shiney, wanna kick your hiney
    hiney too fat, and that’s the end of that!
    so close your eyes and count to ten
    and if you mess up, start all over again!
    1..2..3…and so onuntil 10

    when you get to “so close your eyes…”, you must close your eyes and do the hand movements without looking

    o, and as for the intro, its:

    ABC its easy as 123
    my mamma takes care of me
    my daddy has funky feet (i know, very childish :) )
    ABC, 123
    baby, you and me girl

    my children love this, im sure they practice it in their sleep!

    “i wanna piece of pie!
    the pie too sweet
    i wanna piece of meat!
    the meat too tough,
    i wanna ride the bus!
    the bus too full,
    i wanna ride a (BOOM)”

    and thats when the song switched over again.

    i found it amusing because i didn’t know that this rap song was an old rhyme til i read this page of comments.

    meat too tough
    I want to ride a bus,
    bus too fast
    I want my money back,
    money too green
    I want a jelly bean,
    jelly bean not cooked
    I want to read a book,
    book not read
    I want to go to bed,
    bed not made
    I want some lemonade,
    lemonade too sour
    we got the power
    to start all over again.
