Howdi Do!

Howdi Do

Words and Music by Woody Guthrie

I stick out my little hand

To ev’ry woman, kid and man

And I shake it up and down, howjido, howjido

Yes, I shake it up and down, howjido

Howdy doozle doodle doozie

Howji hijie heejie hojie,

Howji hojie heejie hijie,

Howjido, howjido, howjido, sir,

Doodle doosie, howjido.

And when you walk in my door,

I will run across my floor,

And I'll shake you by the hand,

Howjido, howjido,

Yes, I'll shake it up and down, howjido

On my sidewalk, on my street,

Any place that we do meet,

Then I'll shake you by your hand,

Howjido, howjido,

Yes, I'll shake it up and down, howjido

When I first jump out of bed,

Out my window goes my head,

And I shake it up and down,

Howjido, howjido,

I shake at all my windows, howjido

I feel glad when you feel good,

You brighten up my neighborhood,

Shakin'hands with ev'rybody,

Howjido, howjido,

Shakin' hands with ev'rybody, howjido

When I meet a dog or cat,

I will rubby rub his back,

Shakey, shakey, shakey paw,

Howjido, howjido,

Shaking hands with everybody, howdy do.

This was a favorite song when my son was little and now I sing it to Stella.  She likes it too.  She is a pretty good  hand shaker except sometimes she gets bashful and keeps her paws on the floor!  If things are right for you, you will look at this while the song is playing on our blog jukebox.

Cheers and hugs,

Stella and Zkhat, also Mom

Howjido Stella.
Great song. I am a pretty good paw shaker too. I can do 'paw' and 'other paw', although I sometimes get excited and try to put the humans hand in my mouth instead and they react like that's a bad thing!

Howjido! What a delight! Momma sings to us, too! It is special momma and us time.

Stella, Quinn is VERY flattered that you think he is handsome. He thinks the two of you would look stunning on a playdate together...black and white.

Stella said...

To Siku Marie and the Mighty Quinn:

I would be happy to do a playdate with Quinn as long as he knows my heart belongs to Tsar of the Portuguese Water Dogs. Tsar sings to me too!

Just to let you know Pip will even pinch a chew right out of my mouth
Even if he had a sack full we can not think why he is like this.
