Tongan Childrens Silly Song about Grandma

If you have primary school aged children you will know the tune of Mr Clickety Cane by Peter Coombe. I use that tune to sing this silly song that I made up. For Tongans we have the utmost respect for our elders and I would never say this to my grandma directly. This is simply a silly song which does not need to make sense and it is the best way for children to learn. Children love silly songs and itʻs a great way to engage them and besides how many people know of a grumpy grandma.

  1. Taʻahine ko Grandma – The girl that is Grandma
  2. ʻOku nifo ava – Is missing some teeth
  3. Faʻa kaikaila – always screaming she is
  4. Tuku ā ho faʻa ʻita – youʻre always getting mad, please stop!
