Boogie

FlyLady’s famous 27 Fling Boogie is a cherished tool of FlyBabies! It helps us quickly let go of the clutter that invades our homes and rules our lives. Now it’s time to teach our kids how to “Boogie” a room! See how many things your child can find to throw away, and how many things they can find to give away in one room before the song is over. Set a goal for how many items will be given the boot and celebrate their ability to let go. Remember to teach kids if an item doesn’t make them smile and have a place to live--get rid of it! A warning to parents: Let your kids let go! Just because sweet Aunt Sally gave them that ugly stuffed bear doesn’t mean they have to trip over it for the next 10 years!

 

Boogie
2008 Alison Moulton and Valerie Christensen

Pull the covers on my head
Somethin’ stinks beneath my bed
Can’t face my room to day!
Stubbed my toe and scraped my knee
With all the toys surrounding me
I don’t have room to play.
I can’t find my book
No matter where I look
And I just lost my shoes
So many toys around
They’re tumbling down
Tell me Mamma, what do I do?
(She said…)

Pick it up and pack it out
Decide what you can do without
So you have room to play!
Having junk around
Only brings you down
So Boogie that clutter away!
Only keep the toys that bring you joy
And pass the rest along
You can FLY when you simplify
And sing the Bedroom Boogie Song!

Broken book, banana peel
A truck with only a wheel
I’ll throw these away.
But the teddy bear
And the game up there
Are gonna bless another kid today
I’ve been hangin’ on
For way too long
Time to let them go
This room is growin’
The more I’m throwin’
I’m glad I finally know
(How to…)

Pick it up and pack it out
Decide what I can do without
So I have room to play!
Having junk around
Only brings me down
So I’ll Boogie that clutter away!
I only keep the toys that bring me joy
And pass the rest along
I can FLY when I simplify
And sing the Bedroom Boogie Song!

Mamma sent me in here
Thought it would take a year
For me to get it all done.
But now her eyes are poppin’
And her jaw is dropping’
And I’m off to have some fun!
(Yeah, yeah, yeah!  When I…)

Chorus:
Pick it up and pack it out
Decide what I can do without
So I have room to play!
Having junk around
Only brings me down
So I’ll Boogie that clutter away!
I only keep the toys that bring me joy
And pass the rest along
I can FLY when I simplify
And sing the Bedroom Boogie
The Bedroom Boogie
The Bedroom Boogie Song!
