SONGS FOR ‘LIL CATHY, AGE 3½

Pictured in 1943 on the streets of NYC is Woody Guthrie and his amazing machine - when it wasn't busy killing fascists it was put to good use by entertaining children.

WOODY SEZ:
“Watch the kids. Do like they do. Act like they act. Yell like they yell. Dance the ways you see them dance. Sing like they sing. Work and rest the way the kids do. You'll be healthier. You'll feel wealthier. You'll talk wiser. You'll go higher, do better, and live longer here amongst us if you'll just only jump in here and swim around in these songs and do like the kids do. I don't want the kids to be grownup. I want to see the grown folks be kids.”

At the time of releasing his first set of children's songs, Woody revealed one his key influences:

“I’ve been playing and singing songs I made up now for nearly twenty years and Cathy [his daughter] at 3½ already can outrhyme, outplay, and outsing me any old day.

In the wider scheme of things, there’s not a lot happening here… in fact, this year's chart-topper has the dubious distinction of having the lowest rating of any year. Still, Woody’s entry was a noble effort which very much had its place, and was highly regarded by the target audience – parents and children!
