Two versions are shown below.

Version 1

Do your ears hang low?
Do they wobble to and fro?
Can you tie them in a knot?
Can you tie them in a bow?
Can you throw them o'er your shoulder
like a continental soldier?
Do your ears hang low?

Do your ears hang high?
Do they reach up to the sky?
Do they droop when they are wet?
Do they stiffen when they're dry?
Can you semaphore your neighbour
with a minimum of labour?
Do your ears hang high?

Do your ears flip-flop?
Can you use them for a mop?
Are they stringy at the bottom?
Are they curly at the top?
Can you use them for a swatter?
Can you use them for a blotter?
Do your ears flip-flop?

Do your ears hang out?
Can you waggle them about?
Can you flip them up and down
as you fly around the town?
Can you shut them up for sure
when you hear an awful bore?
Do your ears hang out?

Does it flop all around?
Can you tie it in a knot?

Can you throw it o'er your shoulder
like a Continental Soldier?
Does your tongue hang down?

Does your nose hang low?
Does it wiggle to and fro?
Can you tie it in a knot?

Can you throw it o'er your
shoulder like a Continental Soldier?
Does your nose hang low?

Do your eyes pop out?
Do they bounce all about?
Can you tie them in a knot?
Can you tie them in a bow?
Can you throw them o'er your shoulder
like a Continental Soldier?
Do your eyes pop out?

Do your eyeballs droop
do they wobble in your soup
can you tie them in a loop
can you wind them on a hoop
do your eyeballs droop!

The following verses are copyright 1998 by Lawrence, Ann, Benjamin, and Katherine Sulky

Do your ears stretch wide? Do they reach from side to side?
Can you use them as a parachute
or wings that let you glide?
Can you cast a cooling shadow
over most of Colorado?
Do your ears stretch wide?

Are your ears too big? Are they heavy as a pig?
Do they bruise your cerebellum
when you dance an Irish jig?
Can they function as the anchors
for a fleet of oil tankers?
Are your ears too big?

Are your ears real small? Barely visible at all?
Do they look just like two peanuts stuck onto a bowling ball?
Can you store them in a thimble when you're feeling rather nimble?
Are your ears real small?

Are your ears quite clean? Do they have a lovely sheen?
Did you harvest all the vegetables that grow down in between?
Did you wash out all the soil after all your farming toil?
Are your ears quite clean?

Are your ears so thin? Do the breezes make 'em spin?
Can you shine a light right through them like the finest onionskin?
Can you wrap up a salami? Do they fold like origami?
Are your ears so thin?

Do Your Ears Hang Low?

Posted on November 7, 2011 by admin | Leave a comment

This is one of those wonderfully funny songs that draw a smile from babies, toddler, moms, dads and grandparents alike!  It’s often listed as a kids song, a folk song, a summer camp song, a scout song and also as a song that is accompanied by hand motions and all of these are true!

While it’s related in lyrics and melody to the famous fiddle tune “Turkey In The Straw”, no one really knows who wrote it and the song has certainly been handed down to so many people that a variety of different versions have survived.   You can look below for a version that I like to sing and also one that Wikipedia lists as alternate lyrics.

How do you do the hand movements?  They are really easy.  Check out the link below to see the guitar chords and hand movements explained.  Or download the free sheet music.  Or download my free mp3 of this song from that great kids song resource – Kiddiddles.

So, go ahead.  Get silly.  And let your kids see you getting silly! Challenge them to learn the hand movements – they will probably master them before you!  Just one warning here – it may not be a good idea to sing this song while you have a cold. Have you guessed why?  If not, check verse five below and get ready to catch some run-away appendages!

With the slightest little sneeze?
Can you soar above the nation?

The photographer must leave something for eternity


About a year ago Andrey Chepakin headed the Guild of Photojournalists of the Union of Journalists of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region. He faced difficult tasks - to activate the work of the professional community, to attract young people, to introduce new forms of work. A JOURNALIST asked a well-known photographer about the life of the trade union, the problems of modern professionals and career opportunities

Why professional associations are needed

Previously, the Union of Journalists was a trade union and had financial resources that allowed them to manipulate the journalistic community. Now this is also a union, but since all the media are fragmented and belong to different owners with different political views and sources of funding, now mature journalists essentially do not need it. And I understand that it is necessary to practice some forms that would interest everyone. Probably, first of all, these are projects related to youth.

I monitored: there are good young people, but there is nowhere to apply their professional knowledge to them. We brought in many new members due to the fact that for some my word still means something, because I had and still have opportunities to offer work and some kind of training. Of course, the lack of own premises interfered - the Journalist's House was under repair. But even after its opening, we still have nowhere to gather.

We have cleaned up the photo nomination on the Golden Pen. For example, they removed from there such rudiments as handing over paper photographs. We expanded the series to 12 photos according to international standards. There are also other working projects. For example, we discovered that the Berlin Union of Journalists wants to be friends with us. It turns out that they have almost two thousand members there, and the chairman is a photographer.

But in general, much more needs to be done than has been done. In its current form, the Union of Journalists is useful only for working with young authors, and in fact it used to be work with older members, but now there are no funds for this.

Ideally, the Union should deal with the following: a coherent educational program based on practical and exhibition activities, as well as assistance in publication. Now this is the most difficult thing to do: either young photographers are not paid money, or some kind of rules are established. Not everywhere is an adequate level of quality, and the scale of criteria is somehow blurred now.

The trouble is that we immediately prepare abstract artists, and before that you need to at least draw a hand, as in the Surikov School. With us, students immediately turn into geniuses, there is no mastery. A professional differs from a non-professional in that you are ready to show your craft at 100% of your capabilities every minute. And it doesn't matter if you are filming a military operation in a hot spot, an expedition to the North Pole, or a meeting of tops in some company. Or you are hanging tied on wire ropes on a helicopter 300 meters above the ground, or you are sitting comfortably and drinking coffee, and imposing people are sitting around you - you still have to do quality work.

And if you have a TK, you must fulfill it 100%, even if your nose bleeds.

What is happening with the education of photographers

There are quite a lot of educational projects now. It can be a photographer who organizes a creative workshop and teaches himself. There are entire private schools where they recruit teachers who teach according to a strict curriculum. And in such schools, great professionals, such as Sasha Belenky, do not hesitate to teach the very basics of photography. It is surprising when a university teacher tells what was previously taught in the circle of the House of Pioneers. It also happens that a photographer shot two series in his life and suddenly became a “guru”. I do not presume to judge, but still the teacher must have some baggage.

I would probably go to a particular master, I would not buy into beautiful wrappers. It is important to look at the message of the master - either he prepares clones for himself, or brings up an independent creative person. You should not imitate - you need to correctly study the techniques, evaluate and dissect the work of the master. After all, many remain their entire creative career in imitation - this is a dangerous path.

Ossetian special forces operation to restore the historical borders of South Ossetia. South Ossetia - Georgia, August 2008

How to build a career as a young specialist

In my career, I saw the heyday of photography. Having worked in such newspapers as Leningradskaya Pravda, Izvestiya, Parlamentskaya Gazeta, and the Federation newspaper, I have never filmed a single party meeting in my entire life. It was a time when we really created, no matter what. Of course, I was lucky with the publications. In 1980-1990, Izvestia was the photography team of the Soviet Union.

Now it is very difficult, because all the traditional media seem to have died, but it seems to be reborn again, like the “Russian Reporter”. But, despite these flutterings, the global trend is such that all the largest brands, unshakable magazines that were decent authorities for us, have gone digital. And this beautiful tactile sensation is no longer there. And in the new editions there is no class, there is a lot of taste. But the saddest thing is that in most of them there is no money.

Yes, there are specialists in the West who wake up in the morning and think about how they will shoot 500 versions of a matchbox for a photobank today. And he knows that everyone will buy from him for a “ruble”. We don’t have such demanded photobanks either, so for 99.9% of photographers any offer of a professional job should be taken as a gift of fate. If you were invited to work full-time in any publication - run there, forgetting everything in the world! If you have the opportunity to work with several publications, you should also use it. I have experienced it myself.

Those who honestly earn a living in Russia as a reporter can sit down and count on Facebook - there won't even be a hundred. In Moscow, these are MIA Rossiya Segodnya, TASS, Kommersant, Izvestia, and some Moscow publications. Everything is very sad in St. Petersburg, so our guys run to Moscow and work there as guest workers. But what if a person wants to develop.

We have a lot of illusions about the European market. It's funny when a photographer says that he is in demand abroad. Yes, there is Kozyrev from the NOOR agency - this is a personal photographer. There are those who work for agencies, in the same St. Petersburg. But this is not a demand for a person, but for the agency that he represents. So it often happens that one day you are asked to shoot an interesting project, and the next - a dish from above in a restaurant. There are enough photographers abroad, and if something is needed here, they will organize a representative office in Russia.

If they understand that they will manage, they will close it, like Reuter's bet in St. Petersburg.

About modern standards of work

Of course, in the West, much is standardized, because they have been doing this for a long time. When I was shooting for the Western media back in 1980-1990, they sent very clear technical specifications. The Americans and Germans have it clearer, the French have it more blurry, but it was still surprising for us then. We are more about eternity and the soul…

Now a paradoxical thing is happening. Russian photographers, especially of the younger generation, are so ready to follow the standard and trends that they are ready to kill their creative self. And it turns out that we are more pro-Western than real Western photographers. Why did we enter this profession? Probably to speak out and leave something for eternity. And if you like to meet standards, then do corporate photography. I spent a year in a corporation and discovered a whole “field” of photographers who are absolutely unknown to anyone, but earn very well. It turns out that this is a huge market, where there are always some tenders. I saw such “masters” there, from whom the hair stood on end, but they live well. That's where everything is written in the technical task.

Probably, this question has always been raised. If you came into photography, then first of all it is an art and you need to be a creative “I”.

The latest trends in photography

There are a lot of trends, and they depend on the requirements of a particular exhibition, competition or publication. Despite the fact that everyone criticizes World Press Photo, still, by inertia, tens of thousands of photographers send their work there every year. It is clear that the competition is politicized. Like most photographers, when I saw that shot of the murdered ambassador, I immediately knew that he would be the winner. Everything coincided there: from artistic and journalistic merits to the topic and trend. At 99% were clear it was a win.

But at least it's really a photograph. And if you remember the winner a few years ago, then in her picture an American tax inspector wanders around the apartment of a man who is unable to repay a loan. The topic turned out to be relevant, there was a crisis in America. And if we compare, then this year's photo will remain in history for a long time, it has become a symbol. But most of the winners didn't.

Now more and more people are taking part in the Chinese version of the WPPhoto contest, and it has grown a lot. Our agencies are already sending photos there. It is wider in scope, because in the same World Press Photo you can see sports and nature, and everything else is the same - corpses, wars and disasters in various forms. But that's not what life is for most people.

Although at the moment it is a photographic "Oscar" due to its long history, but there are much more interesting competitions with their winners.

What happened with the transition to digital

If we compare the technical capabilities of photography, when I came into the profession, and the current ones are heaven and earth. For us, increasing the film speed from 160 units to 800 was very problematic. Now you can shoot at 30 thousand.

But this did not bring any revolution to photography itself - documentary, journalistic. No one began to remove the pores or veins in front of the eyes, they still shoot about the soul. Thanks to technical possibilities, photography has become more relaxed. Not sloppy, but relaxed. Previously, the composition was measured by the golden ratio, but now it’s more in the style of “the photographer saw it that way”. The paradox is that, despite the fantastic technical capabilities that will continue to develop (for fun, Sports Illustrated magazine shoots Motorola phone covers, and the latest models of Huawei already have two Leica lenses built into it), global technical changes have only affected sports photojournalism and shooting nature.

Of course, not having to develop and print on paper affected photography. You have more time to be creative. Previously, you came from a business trip and you had several hundred films lying around, and it was a state of quiet horror, because you had to spend a couple of days in a darkroom. The digital image is in no way inferior to the film in terms of breadth, plus you have the processing tools allowed in journalism, the transfer speed and the enjoyment of the process itself. For me, editing and printing used to be a big negative addition to my love for photojournalism.

Now a person with a secondary education can master the technical part of photography in half a day. I know a lot of professionals who shoot in automatic mode and are not going to change anything, and we are talking about documentary photography. So there are many benefits, and one of them is that a lot of women have come into photography, because the cameras have become lighter and the process has become simpler and more “smart”. This has had a great effect on the profession for the better, in my opinion, side.


Andrei Chepakin worked for major Russian newspapers Leningradskaya Pravda, Parlamentskaya Gazeta, and Izvestia. For the last ten years, he was in charge of the photo service in the Nevskoe Vremya newspaper, which had the unofficial status of "the most photographic newspaper in Russia. " Laureate of national and international awards. Has state awards.

A photo of a surfer in front of a plane landing at Denpasar Airport was recognized by NRC Handelsblad as the most extreme photo of 2014. The shot for Nevsky Vremya was taken in the Pacific Ocean, not far from Ngurah Rai Airport in Bali. Airplanes, coming in for landing, fly very low over the surface of the ocean there. Sometimes the aircraft is even lower than the surfers riding on the waves.
