When Strega Nona wants pasta, she stands over the pasta pot and sings a song. When she wants the pasta pot to stop making pasta, she sings another song.
Ms. Epstein's third grade class at Walden School in Louisville, Kentucky, wrote new pasta pot songs.
Boil, boil, pasta pot
until I say stop, stop, stop.
Pasta, pasta in the bowl,
come out, come out where you belong.
Bubble up bath tub,
Pasta pot, pasta pot, bake some more,
yum, yum, yum, I'll eat it up,
hot, hot, hot, pasta pot.
Pasta pot, pasta pot, make pasta hot.
Pasta pot, pasta pot, make some pasta a lot, a lot, a lot.
Make it really yummy and stop when I say stop.
Make it so yummy it changes flavor in your mouth.
Tomie: If Strega Nona gets tired singing the same ol' pasta pot song, she can choose one of your songs!
