Tongan Childrens Silly Song about Grandma

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!
