It's gotta be a tile roof if you're Japanese.

One of the things I love about kinder here is how many songs the kids learn. They are usually learning two songs at a time- a sing-along song and a calisthenics song and they change each month or so, so over three years that's a lot of songs!

Some of the songs are a bit silly (looking after a baby tanuki) some are about friendship or getting along, others about nature (tulips blooming, bamboo shooting etc). Then every now again there is a song that makes me scratch my head.

The one Amy is learning now is like that.

It's called 'It's gotta be a tile roof if you're Japanese' and is all about how great tile rooves are. How manly they make you etc etc. It comes complete with actions of being a builder pulling piles of tiles around and getting them up on the roof.

I found it on youtube and complete with a group of kindy kids doing the same dance as us.

Now just to think up a similarly patriotic song for Australia...

It's gotta be thongs and a singlet if you're an Aussie...

Tough luck on all the Japanese in Hokkaido, then!! No tile roofs here, they'd crack in the cold!
