Mama Don’t Allow

Mothers Day is coming up, so here’s a song that should get your rebellious kids all up on their feet and dancing around. I owe this version to my colleague Francesca who has had great storytime success with it.

While I don’t envision them as storytime songs, you can also sing Froggy Went a Courtin’ and The Crawdad Song to this tune. Alternate chords include G/D/C.


Mama Don’t Allow
C

Mama don’t allow no clapping around here
                                    G7

Mama don’t allow no clapping around here
C

We don’t care what Mama don’t allow
F

We're gonna clap our hands anyhow
C                   G7               C

Mama don’t allow no clapping around here

Verses

Mama don't allow no stomping...
... jumping...
... dancing...
... wiggling...etc
