The Pretzel Store

The Pretzel Store
(lyrics/L. Berkner and D. Wanner, music/ L. Berkner)


This song was written to accompany a movement piece developed by Debra Wanner, a terrific teacher and performer. In it the kids are the pretzels. They twist their bodies into funny shapes and get to escape from someone who is trying to eat them. I think their favorite thing about this song is that they actually succeed in getting away from the adult. It cracks them up.


So I went down to The Pretzel Store

'Cause I wanted to buy some pretzels

Let me tell you all about their crazy shapes

Twisty, curly, holey and straight

But I won't eat any pretzels today

Because these tricky pretzels sprouted wings

And flew away 

 

Everyday

They flew away

Oh those tricky pretzels

 

So I went back to The Pretzel Store

'Cause I wanted to try to buy one or two more

Let me tell you all about their crazy flavors

Salty, sweet and a little bit savory

But I won't eat any pretzels today

Because these tricky pretzels turned into rainbow fish

And swam away

 

Everyday

They swam away

Oh those tricky pretzels

So I went back to the pretzel store

'Cause I wanted to try to buy one or two more

Let me tell you all about their crazy toppings

Chocolate dipped and honey whipped

But I won't eat any pretzels today

Because these tricky pretzels turned into horses

And galloped away

 

Everyday

They galloped away

Oh those tricky pretzels


So I went back to the pretzel store

Because I love pretzels, I love pretzels

(Come back here, pretzels!) I love pretzels!

(Hey, where you going, pretzels, can you please

come back?) I love pretzels, I love pretzels...

(I guess I'll just eat some chips)
