3 Feet in a Yard Song!


There’s 3 feet in the yard,
There’s 3 feet in the yard
Mother says she’s counting,
3 feet in the yard!

Mother told me something,
It caught me off my guard,
She told me that she’s counting
3 feet in the yard….
It was kind of spooky,
I thought so long and hard,
How could there be 3 feet,
In our big backyard?
Some animals have 2 feet,
Like birds and you and me,
Some animals have 4 feet,
But which  one has just 3?
I was scared to noodles,
A thing that had 3 feet!
That would be a horror,
I didn’t want to meet!

An alien? A monster?
A ghostly, greenish ghoul?
No animal has 3 feet,
It’s what I learned at school!

There’s 3 feet in the yard,
There’s 3 feet in the yard
Mother says she’s counting,
3 feet in the yard!

I peered out the back doorway,
I looked around and round,
Didn’t see a monster,
There were none around!
My mother asked me why I’d seemed
So scared and full of dread,
She said that she was only measuring
pillows for her bed…
She said they measured 3 feet each
She said it wasn’t hard,
Every 3 feet counted,
As exactly one whole yard!

There’s 3 feet in A yard,
There’s 3 feet in A yard
That’s 36 inches,
there’s 3 feet in a yard!

I told my mother I’d been
As scared as scaredy pie,
I thought she’d meant that 3 feet
Belonged to some mean guy…
She said no way and no how,
It’s measurement she said,
My 2 pillows? 6 feet,
They cross our whole king bed….

So don’t be scared of 3 feet,
Be brave son, have some strength,
3 feet just equal one yard,
When we  measure  length!

There’s 3 feet in a yard,
There’s 3 feet in a yard
That’s 36 inches,
there’s 3 feet in a yard!

There’s 3 feet in A yard,
There’s 3 feet in A yard
That’s 36 inches,
There’s 3 feet in a yard!
