Dr. Sue Sings Funny Thanksgiving Song

Dr. Sue Sings Funny Original Thanksgiving Song! Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue Sings Original Funny Song about Voting & Thanksgiving Turkey!
Positive Entertainment

Every Thanksgiving, I give thanks that I am not a turkey!

This popular holiday celebrates the arrival (and survival) of European immigrants on the North American continent with a Thanksgiving feast. Virginia and Massachusetts boast about hosting the first Thanksgiving. You don’t hear as much from the Native Americans, who were already here. Turkeys are prominently featured on most American Thanksgiving tables and greatly admired – but they are not available for comment.

Why not? What wisdom can we glean from the fate of turkeys? Surely we should learn something after hundreds of years… or at least four years after the 2016 election!

If you think that someone who looks rich and claims to be a “real American” because his ancestors got here a few generations ago, will Make America Great for You, consider the fate of the foolish turkey…who gets plucked!

Enjoy my Song Video “Life is Just a Bowl of Gravy!”
Scroll down for song lyrics.

"Life is Just a Bowl of Gravy"

This is a tale of a turkey bird who went to a turkey trot
When anyone asked her "Will you dance?" She answered, "I will not" 
I'll only dance with a gentleman who makes my country great
If he's got money I'll call him my honey, and he will be my date.

Life is just a bowl of gravy - saucy and surprising
Life is just a bowl of gravy - and very appetizing! 

Suddenly somebody stepped on in who came from pilgrim stock
He said "I'll be candid, my boat has just landed nearby on Plymouth Rock
I sail the Mayflower and I got the power and you look mighty fine
Please do not stall my sweet Butterball and come with me to dine

Life is just a bowl of gravy - saucy and surprising
Life is just a bowl of gravy - and very appetizing! 

They went to a fabulous restaurant, she was his dinner date
But when they got there, the table was bare except for an empty plate
The rest of the story is terribly gory - her fate we still recall
If you didn't get here by the Mayflower dear
We're in the same boat - so get out and Vote!
And dance at your own Turkey Ball! 

Life is just a bowl of gravy - saucy and surprising
Life is just a bowl of gravy - and very appetizing!

Dr Sue Sings Funny Witch Song Positive Educational Entertainment

Dr. Sue Sings her Funny, Original Song “Accessory to Crime” from her Fun, Family Musical “SssWitch!”

Enjoy Funny Song-Video “Accessory to Crime” by Dr. Sue
from her Original Musical”SssWitch” – www.SssWitch.net .

Dr. Sue, Writer-Performer-Professor, presents a multi-media, entertaining, educational experience! Her original song “Accessory to Crime” from her musical “SssWitch” combines witty, rhyming lyrics and a catchy, sing-along tune.

Dr. Sue speaks to the audience as a funny, flirtatious Witch sharing delightful, magical secrets. Then she sings the witch’s song “Accessory to Crime” in which the witch confesses that she resents the special privileges of Disney-type princesses and turns to a life of naughty crime. This comic confessional-complaint is classic musical theater. The jealous villain is a twist on Shakespearean villains like jealous Iago in “Othello.”

Dr. Sue speaks and sings with humor and clear diction – so important, especially for those for whom English is a second language.

The Witch appears in her fantasy world – a virtual background with a green sky, twisted black branches and a hint of spiders and pumpkins! The virtual background and costume elements (like Dr. Sue’s little witch-like hat) add visual interest and are perfect for online entertainment and learning.

Dr. Sue’s introduction and ending remarks establish Dr. Sue as an Entertaining, Host-Educator for a series of progams or stand alone short videos. The videos may be used as prompts for discusssion and writing, and programs may include other guest speakers, artists, and educators.

Enjoy Dr. Sue’s Song-Video “Accessory to Crime”!

Here’s the “Accessory to Crime” lyric from Dr. Sue”s original musical: “SssWitch”

"Accessory To Crime"
Oh princesses have fame, like that girly - what's her name?
The one with the big pumpkins and the shoes
Without slippers made of glass, it's hard to show my class
So I'm...an Accessory to Crime! 

Oh Beauty had a Beast, a castle and a feast
They call her Belle, but me - they just abuse
They say that I've got zits and very smelly pits
I'm...an Accessory to Crime!

Why do I act like I'm a rat and talk of gloom and doom? 
Why am I cruel to my own cat and ride a big vacuum? 
The devil makes me wear this hat, my outfit makes me itch
I can't impress you with my dress 
So I confess that my success is acting like a witch!

Oh princesses have feet that are tiny and smell sweet
But sister all my blisters tend to ooze
My feet they are humungous, and covered with green fungus!
If I had just one glass slipper, I just might unzip my zipper
For a prince - or a big tipper!
Till that day revenge feels so sublime
I'm...an accessory an accessory...Here's to Crime!

(Scroll down for Lyrics)

"Wear a Mask, Show You Care" 

I'm so glad you ask why I wear a mask
It's so important to do
If someone's got germs, I don't wanna get'em
And if I got germs, I don't wanna spread'em
I'm so glad you ask. Thank you for wearing a mask

Oh please understand, and please wash your hands
It's so important to do
We all should keep clean 'cause a germ, well it lingers
So wash up your hands and don't forget fingers
Oh please understand, Thank you for washing your hands

Oh show me you love me like my Teddly bear
Do it to show that you care

We're staying apart, you're here in my heart
You know you'll always be there
It's hard to be smart and keep my resistance
I'm keeping my word and keeping my distance
I'll show that I care. Thank you for showing you care.

Dr. Sue & Teddly Sing “Wear a Mask, Wash Your Hands, Stay Apart, Show You Care” Creativity in Quarantine

Dr. Sue Teddly Puppet Wear a Mask
Dr. Sue Teddly Puppet Wear a Mask

Teddly, my Teddy Bear Puppet, loves entertainment and being with friends (Just like me)! But during the current corona crisis, live entertainment is not happening, and in-person socializing is limited. Friends are often hard to reach, and it’s easy to feel isolated, bored, and lonely.

I needed a way to stay active and connected to a community. I needed to communicate what I am doing, thinking, and feeling. I needed to create, share, and get a response.

I started spending a lot of time on the Internet – especially on Social Media and YouTube. I posted comments, photos, videos, songs, humor, and stories about my life. Facebook friends liked, commented, and began to feel like “real” friends. I also needed a sense of purpose – to feel that I was making a contribution. I created two Facebook groups: New York Strong and Dr. Sue Positive Entertainment – where members can comment and post their own images and videos – and I can do it too. I like costumes and props, so I looked around my home to see what was available.

That’s when I thought about Teddly – a bear puppet stuck in a box in my closet. It was time to come out of the closet – and think out of the box! Teddly began showing up in my Zoom meetings and Social Media photos!

When I needed a haircut (after four months of self-quarantine), Teddly helped me get the message across. I posted a photo of Teddly on my Facebook page with the caption: “Should I cut my own hair? Should I trust Teddly bear with scissors?”

To my surprise, I got loads of likes, comments, and advice – including a reference to Robin Baxter, a talented hairdresser in midtown. She turned out to be clean, convenient, courteous, talented and reasonable!

Teddly also began responding to the news with photos plus humorous comments and short poems. When President Trump promoted Goya Foods in the Oval Office, Teddly posed with a can of beans.

One of today’s most important (and controversial) issues is wearing masks – to protect yourself and others against the novel Coronavirus. The most recent medical studies (cited in The New York Times, July 28, 2020) offers strong evidence that masks offer protection against spreading the virus and becoming infected.

I wanted to convey the importance of wearing a mask, washing your hands, and keeping social distance. But I didn’t want to lecture people and provoke conflict. Puppets are a fun, non-threatening way to communicate, with special appeal to children – and the young-at-heart. I decided to write an original song, sing it with my Teddly Bear puppet, and put the video on YouTube!

Dr. Sue & Teddly Sing:
“Wear a Mask, Wash Your Hands, Stay Apart, Show You Care” copyright Dr. Sue

“Wear a Mask, Wash Your Hands, Stay Apart, Show You Care” by Dr. Sue

I’m so glad you ask why I wear a mask
It’s so important to do
In case you got germs, I don’t wanna get ’em
And if I got germs, I don’t wanna spread ’em
I’m so glad you ask… thank you for wearing a mask!

Oh please understand, and please wash your hands
It’s so important to do
We all should keep clean ’cause a germ, well it lingers
So wash up like me, though bears don’t have fingers
Oh please understand…thank you for washing your hands.

You might be a person, you might be a bear
Do it to show that you care….

I’m staying apart, you’re here in my heart
I’ll still be your Teddly Bear
It’s hard to be smart and keep my resistance
I’m keeping my words- I’m keeping my distance
I’ll show that I care…thank you from your Teddly Bear.

Dr. Sue Ashokan Online Music Camp w Puppet

Dr. Sue Enjoys Ashokan Music & Dance Camp Online Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue Enjoys Ashokan Music & Dance Camp Online

My Teddy Bear Puppet (and Me) love Ashokan & Music-Dance Camps – Online in 2020!

Ashokan Arts and Nature Center is nestled in the Catskill Mountain of New York – an idyllic setting for music, dancing, hiking, wildflowers, butterflies, and swimming in a natural pool by a waterfall.

There are several camps in the summer, specializing in different types of mainly traditional American music, with classes in singing, music theory, instruments and more – plus different kinds of dancing. Each camp is one week long – plus weekend music-dance hoots and events (like the popular New Year’s weekend).

Attendees include adults, families, singles and couples, with all ages mingling freely , in classes, on the dance floor, and in the dining hall around wooden tables set up for family style dining. Delicious meals are prepared by the gifted chef (with vegan options) and kitchen staff, with produce fresh-picked food from the farm garden near the dining hall. Attendees stay in comfortable dorms, private rooms, and local inns – or bring their own tents. If you attend online, you can relax at home and sleep in your own bed – and it’s easily affordable – with a sliding scale payment option.

Music and dance classes – with evening concerts by staff and campers, plus informal music jams emphasize participation, and a sense of “family”. Campers often return year after year and build life-long friendships with each other and with the owners, a married couple named Jay Ungar and Molly Mason. Jay’s original, but traditional sounding fiddle song “Ashokan Farewell” was featured in the Ken Burns documentary PBS series on the Civil War – and provided key funding to save and upgrade the Ashokan Center as a unique combination of an environmentally conscious, natural setting for music and the all the arts (including, painting, quilting, and a canoe on the rafters of the dining hall).

Building community usually takes in-person interaction. So how in the world is all this going to happen online? There’s a one word answer – Zoom!

It turns out that Zoom is well-suited for classes, concerts, and comments. Featured performers appear in the large middle screen. Attendees can leave comments on the side and appear in small video boxes in the Zoom Gallery.

Many Ashokan “Zoomers” play musical instruments or sing, and some even dance at home -but you don’t have to – you can just enjoy the performers. (I can see Zoomers in the gallery of little video boxes.)

My teddy bear hand puppet can’t play the banjo or guitar – probably because he doesn’t have a thumb. But my own thumb fits nicely in Teddy’s plush arm, and combined with my fingers and hand, Teddy can wave to the Zoomers, emote (with dramatic effect) and applaud with enthusiasm! Teddy can also dance (more or less). He doesn’t have two left feet because… he doesn’t have any feet! And, as it turns out, he fills up a video box and looks great in Zoom!

Dr. Sue Guard Hamilton

Dr. Sue “Mrs. Hamilton the Musical” Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue’s Funny Review “Mrs. Hamilton the Musical”

“Hamilton the Musical” is a lot of laughs…after the show! I streamed the mega-hit, mega-bucks Broadway show on my computer. Due to the pandemic, Broadway is closed for live entertainment, but “Hamilton” now streams online – if you subscribe to Disney +.

I am in voluntary self-quarantine, so I spend most of my time at home with my computer – or going for morning, solo walks in my New York City park – where I became friendly with the Brookfield Place Security Guard. I always wear a mask indoors, but when I’m outdoors for my early morning, uncrowded walks, I’m less cautious. The Guard is more available before the daytime crowd arrives. We stay six apart and enjoy lively conversations, updating each other on our lives – with encouragement and humor.

The morning after I watched “Hamilton” I encountered my new friend, the Guard. He had not seen the show on Broadway or online, so I summarized the story – with my own comic twist – and here it is!

Hamilton (a US Founding Father), a.k.a. “Mr. Ham” is the lead role. Mr. Ham, immigrates to the pre-USA, fights for independence, invents banking, flirts with his bride’s sister, insults people, and fathers a son – who gets into to a duel to defend his dad’s honor. Mr. Ham tells his son to shoot into the air – which gets him killed.

Mrs. Hamilton is really steamed – especially when Mr. Ham defends his financial honor to his enemies by pointing out that his suspicious check stubs were payments to the hubby of a local hottie for letting Ham and hottie do the nasty in the wife’s bed.

Mr. Ham gets into his own duel, shoots into the air, and gets himself killed.

The musical makes multi-millions – on stage and now…on screen.

The Security Guard and I plan to write a sequel called… “Mrs. Hamilton: I Married a Moron! “

In our version, Mrs. Ham gets the pistol and shoots Mr. Ham in his pee-pee.

She becomes a Founding Mother, and we become billionaires!

Our new, improved version has comedy and a happy ending! We expect it to be a success – on stage, screen and as a sitcom/reality show called… “I Married a Moron!” The married couple will be play by a celebrity wife and a famous US politico husband. Guess who!

We hope to spin-off the sitcom into dance-exercise videos – so you can social distance – and stay in shape! Here is a free sample!

Dr. Sue Interviews Clearwater Captain Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue Interviews Clearwater Captain Positive Entertainment

The Clearwater sloop sails down the Hudson River from Albany, NY to New York City with a mission – a Celebration of the Hudson River and the Resilience of Community. This year’s journey is called “The River Connects Us.”

Launched in 1969 as the brainchild of visionary folksinger-activist Pete Seeger, The Clearwater Sloop has hosted over half a million visitors – and is reaching many more online.

The Covid-19 crisis in 2020 has made visitations onboard unwise and impractical. But you can’t keep a good sloop down – or in port. The Clearwater is still still sailing – with a sequestered crew – and an online presence consisting of interactive live streams (with interviews with musicians, local residents, activists, river workers) and videos to document and share the experience on social media platforms.

I met Clearwater Captain Nick Rogers in New York City at the South Street Seaport, Pier 16. The sloop was heading down to the Verrazano Bridge before turning around and heading back upstate. Nick, a former math teacher-carpenter, has been connected to the Clearwater since 2007. He learned most of his skills on the job, and has a Coast Guard’s license. Other members of the on-board crew include another captain, environmental scientists, crew members, and a cook. The small crew eats and sleeps on board – sometimes below deck – but a navigating captain must be on deck at all times.

I asked Nick what happens in case of a storm. He replied, “We try not to be in it – or to be the tallest point in case lightning strikes. But if we can’t pull into a dock, we point into the storm and sail.”

The Hudson River – flowing through New York State into the Atlantic Ocean – has seen many changes since Henry Hudson, the early 17th Century English explorer, discovered the beauty of the American wilderness. By the time Singer-Songwriter Pete Seeger swam in the river with his family, it had become a polluted cesspool. It took this artist-visionary and a team of activists to to begin the journey to reclaim the natural heritage of our waterways. For a virtual, multimedia journey, visit www.clearwater.org

Dr. Sue Solar Roses

Dr. Sue Solar Power Roses Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue Solar Power Roses Positive Entertainment

A rose is a rose…except when it has a secret! This rose has a solar battery that absorbs power from the sun!

Actually, all roses (and other plants) are powered by the sun through a natural process known as photosynthesis – turning light energy into plant elements (including flowers, fruit, roots, stems, leaves, etc.)

When we eat the plant, we are indirectly absorbing the power of the sun!

This rose (not the decoration in my hair – the other one) is solar powered. Its battery takes in energy from sunlight all day long. When the sun sets, the hidden lights in the roses turn themselves on and begin to glow in the darkness.

Day Roses – Night Roses…Empowered by the Sun!

Natural Roses are beautiful – we love their colors, aroma, and variety – from wild roses to carefully cultivated hybrids. These solar-powered roses are a fusion of beauty and science that we can enjoy day and night!

Speaking of energy, what do we do with all that energy? One thing I like to do is take long walks and photograph flowers in my local park. On my walks, I encountered a Parks Department Security Guard. We fell into a conversation about our shared interest in flowers and how the park gardeners carefully plant and tend the different varieties so they form multi-colored arrangements that change through the seasons.

The Guard and I formed a friendship over our shared interest in flowers and we began to talk about social issues too – in a spirit of understanding and enjoying each other’s company. It felt particularly poignant because these days, due to the Coronavirus-19 and the need for social distancing, I spend most of my time at home alone. The park offers a chance for exercise, fresh air, sunshine, and sometimes – conversation.

One day, I decided to enhance the exercise potential of my walks and build up my arm muscles (along with my legs), so I started carrying water bottles. Each filled bottle weighs about two pounds. As I lift and swing my arms on my walk, I’m getting a good, full-body work out. What I still miss is dancing – especially with a good partner. All the dance clubs have been closed for months – and not likely to re-open soon. But it turns out that my new friend is … a dancer!

Water Bottle Weights are Free – Companionship and Dancing Joy are Priceless!
