The Cookie Bakers of the Night

The Cookie Bakers of the Night
(L. Berkner)


Adam Bernstein, bass
Susie Lampert, piano
Some of my older students made up many of the ideas for this song along with Debra Wanner, their movement teacher. They look so wonderful sneaking around, mixing their batter, jumping over their wooden spoons and dancing around like live cookies.


We are the cookie bakers of the night


We bake our cookies and we stay out of sight

We’re hiding, hiding, hiding from the light


We are the cookie bakers of the night

 

And first we’ll mix it, mix it, mix it till it’s yummy - mm mmm mmm

Taste it, taste it, yummy in my tummy - delicious!


And shape it, shape it, shape it till it’s round


Then roll it, roll it, roll it on the ground and

Jump on over, jump on over, jump on over, jump on over

And cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, those cookies up

 

We are the cookie bakers of the night


We bake our cookies and we stay out of sight

We’re hiding, hiding, hiding from the light


We are the cookie bakers of the night

 

And first we’ll mix it, mix it, mix it till it’s yummy


Shape it, shape it yummy in my tummy


Taste it, taste it, mmm mmm mmm


And roll it, roll it, roll it on the ground and


Jump on over, jump on over, jump on over, jump on over

And cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, those cookies up

 

Put them in the oven to bake


We’re not making pies or chocolate cake


We’re making cookies cookies cookies cookies


And the clock goes tick tock tick tock tick tock tick


Tick tock tick tock tick tock tick, tick tock tick tock tick tock tick

 

Oh OH, OH, those cookies started to grow . . .


When out of the oven to my surprise, all of the cookies came

 ALIVE!

 

Some were dancing some were rolling

Some were jumping up and down

Some were flying through the air

Some were leaping everywhere

And some were even upside down

 

And then the cookie bakers had to try to catch the kooky cookies

The cookie bakers had to try to catch the kooky cookies


The cookie bakers had to try to catch the kooky cookies


The cookie bakers had to try to catch the kooky cookies

 

So they’d eat ‘em, they’d eat em, they’d eat ‘em

They’d eat ‘em, they’d eat ’em, they’d eat ‘em

They’d eat ‘em, eat ‘em, eat ‘em all up!
