Alright, this post is mainly for my family members who will remember this song.
When we were kids my grandparents had a old record player in the basement with a bunch of old records. There was only one us kids were interested in and that was The Candy Man. And on that record there was only one song that we listened to and that was the Boogie Woogie Bakery Man. One of my older cousins invented a game where we ran around the basement to the music and then had to jump on one of the beds before the music stopped. It was a lot of fun and occupied us for hours. I am sure I have heard this song hundreds of times. So you don't have to always entertain your kids, just give them some old tapes to listen to, some space to run around in, and see what they do.
(In the interests of full disclosure when we were doing this as teenagers I fell on my cousin and he ended up with a really bloody nose.)
This song isn't exactly politically correct and the video is pretty corny but the song definately brings back memories of good times.
