Let’s find the repeated phrases in the song Shark Baby by Shawnee Lamb and Robin Davies. It is a nursery dance song about a family of sharks. On June 17, 2016, “Baby Shark Dance” song was posted on YouTube, which has received billions of views.
The lyrics are here: Baby Shark lyrics
Here are the short patterns:
Count Phrase 162 doo 25 shark (5 with !) 9 !
In the 2 word patterns, we see the 5 members of the family:
Count Phrase 4 Baby shark 4 Mommy shark 4 Daddy shark 4 Grandma shark 4 Grandpa shark
Here we see the moods of the dance:
Count Phrase 4 Let's go hunt 4 Run away 4 Safe at last 4 It's the end
We could probably pattern another nursery song on this super popular song. Nursery songs are part of how we learn language and folk dancing. I love the song as much as my grandchild, Jayden Payne.
