Summer Tattin' - knot-tea song lyrics

In honor of my new beginner's tatting class starting on June 30th, I offer up a knot-tea song lyric.

Summer Tattin'
Sung to the Tune of "Summer Nights" from the movie "Grease"

[IsDihara]
Summer Tattin' got me a class.

[Students]
Summer Tattin' signed up so fast.

[IsDihara]
Six new students waiting for me.

[Students]
Makin' lace, just like Aunt Bea.

[Both]
First lesson comes with a kit, to uh-oh get stitches to flip.

[Everyone]
Uh Well-a well-a well-a huh

[Students]
What's a pinch? Did yours flip?

[IsDihara]
OK, hold it like this.

[Students]
Holy cow! Mine just flipped.

[IsDihara]
Great! You made your first stitch!

I'm not teaching so I might just have to Shuttle Off To Buffalo!

*big.grins* Shuttle Off To Buffalo!
Thanks, Fox, for being so clever!

Gina, I make no claim to eloquence of expression such as poets and songwriters have. I fracture existing lyrics. But I hope they make you smile or hum a cheery tune as you go about your day.

Thanks to both of you for your kind comments!
