A song based upon the children's fairy tale - The Gigantic Turnip.

This song makes use of 12 bar blues as its structure and is cumulative and dramatic.
A great song to act out as a mini drama within a class assembly.

Each verse contains a key rhythm for the children to echo. As the children sing through
the song the rhythms build up to create longer rhythmic phrases. The song ends with a
celebratory chorus as the mouse saves the day.

This resource contains a lead vocal MP3, a backing track MP3 and a PDF score.
