Adam Had Seven Sons


American folk song, adapted by Beth Thompson

Adam had seven sons*,
Seven sons had Adam,
And they all were bright
And they did what Adam say,
“Let’s all do this,
Let’s all do this,” says Adam.

Optional lyric change: substitute “kids” for “sons”


Formation: Students stand in a circle surrounding a student, who is “Adam” (“It”).

“It” does a motion that all students imitate while singing.
