The Oatmeal Armpit Band (Children) - Poem by C.J. Heck

Would you like to make some music?
We'll play whatever we can.
Anything’s okay if you wanna play
in the Oatmeal Armpit Band.

I drum spoons on an oatmeal box.
My brother strums rubber bands.
Anything’s okay if you wanna play
in the Oatmeal Armpit Band.

Daddy burps his armpits.
(If you watch, you’ll understand) .
Anything’s okay if you wanna play
in the Oatmeal Armpit Band.

Sissy plays a xylophone.
You can play, I know you can!
Anything's okay if you wanna play
in the Oatmeal Armpit Band.

Mommy clangs some pot lids.
Would you like to clap your hands?
Anything’s okay if you wanna play
in the Oatmeal Armpit Band.

Some kids snap their fingers.
Or here, come bang some pans!
Anything’s okay if you wanna play
in the Oatmeal Armpit Band.

Maybe you could make loud pig sounds
or a kazoo, now that's a plan!
Anything’s okay if you wanna play
in the Oatmeal Armpit Band.

It doesn’t matter what we use.
We'll play whatever we can!
Anything’s okay if you wanna play
in the Oatmeal Armpit Band!
