Lyrics:

Why isn’t your nose twelve inches long?
Why would that be so very, very wrong?
Why isn’t your nose twelve inches long?
‘Cause then it would be a foot!
Ha!
Get it? Get it?
It’ll make you laugh if you let it.
Get it? Got it!
‘Cause then it would be a foot!

What time is it when the clock strikes thirteen?
Isn’t that the strangest thing you’ve ever seen?
What time is it when the clock strikes thirteen?
It’s time to get a new clock!
Ha!
Get it? Get it?
It’ll make you laugh if you let it.
Get it? Got it!
It’s time to get a new clock!

A riddle is a question with a joke at the end.
You can tell it to your cousin, you can tell it to a friend.
You can tell it to your dog, or your little rubber ducky
But they probably won’t guess it... unless they’re really really lucky!

What’s the hardest thing about learning how to skate?
And you’re going ‘round in circles when you’re trying to go straight?
What’s the hardest thing about learning how to skate?
The hardest thing is the ground!
Ha!
Riddles, riddles
Fun for adults and kiddles
Why does a fireman wear red suspenders?
So his pants don’t fall down when he’s laughing at a riddle!

(spoken/rapped)

I like telling riddles when I’m staying up all night.
I like telling riddles when I’m turning out the light.

I like telling riddles when I’m climbing up a tree.
I like telling riddles when I’m swimming in the sea.

I like telling riddles when I’m flying through the air.
I like telling riddles when I’m running from a bear.

I like telling riddles when I’m jumping on my bed.
I like telling riddles when I’m standing on my head.

I like telling riddles when I ride a kangaroo.
I like telling riddles and I’ll bet that you do, too.

I like telling riddles when I’m rolling on the floor.
I like telling riddles, but I don’t know any more.

About the Artist:

Barbara Klaskin Silberg(aka Mrs. Music) comes by her professional name after a lifetime spent training for her title. As a child Barbara studied ballet but then turned her attention as a teenager to singing. She toured with "The New Generation", under the direction of Don Bluth and then went on to direct her own singing group called "The West Los Angeles Children's Choir."

Mrs. Music studied her craft in college and then20traveled from school to school in the Los Angeles area teaching thousands of children about how music interacts with history. She is currently the music teacher at UCLA's Neuropsychiatric Hospital where she works her magic with pediatric and adolescent in-patients.
Barbara began writing her own music as a remedy to the often heard complaint “Why do students always sing the same songs at every holiday show and assembly? She produced her first two albums, “It’s Holiday Time” and “Celebrating Children” over nine years ago and enjoys knowing that schools all over the country continually incorporate those songs into their performances. This past year, Barbara celebrated the births of her two grandchildren by writing and producing the beautiful lullaby album “Rocking the Night Away.”
Mrs. Silberg is proud to have written two songs that have been accepted onto the National Institute of Health’s Educational Website for Patriotic Songs. The first, “Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor”, has been performed at the Statue of Liberty and will soon be sung by a 250 member choir in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her newest patriotic song, co-written with her husband Bob from the words of Martin Lut her King and Barack Obama is called “I Have A Dream/This is Our Moment” and has recently been performed with the Brentwood/Westwood Symphony in Los Angeles.
