SSAA. Playground song/American railroading song. We found these songs in a songbook recommended by a Kaia mom. My version’ a little more funky than what’s written! Step Back, Baby is a call-and-response song collected by Keith Knighton from some kids at a Boston playground. It segues nicely into Chicka Hanka, an old railroading song. My version adds vocal and body percussion.
Here’s a video by Kaia from our Roots & Sass show back in 2007. That’s Angela and Ardas rockin’ out on the hand jive.
