Are You Familiar with a Picnic Song with Catsup in it?

Dear Lisa,

I am looking for the words to a picnic song that was sung on the very, very old program, The Breakfast Show.

The song was Going on a picnic… did you bring the catsup, catsup…

Thank you so much for any help.

    Hi Valerie,

    You may want to check back a this link from time to time to see if someone writes in with an answer. Sometimes, we’ll can an answer over time.

    The song is “What did you bring to the picnic”
    Basket is placed in the middle of the circle
    each child holds an item for the picnic. Sing the song:

    “Going on a picnic.Going on a picnic, we’ll be leaving right away, if it doesn’t rain we will stay all day, ..did you bring the ____(forks)… child holding forks answers..”yes I brought the ___.(forks)..(child put the forks in the basket-) Child sings as he places “Here we go!” (basket of course will get fuller)
    Repeat again.

    Hope this is it…Carrie
