Stamp Your Beet

please enable images

There's a photo I've seen circulated with the text "If you're happy and you know it" and the image is a spiral ham in a C-clamp (i.e. "clamp your hams"). I then thought of this successor, "stamp your beet" (i.e. "stomp your feet"). I did not realize there are many variations of this song until I compiled a playlist of kid songs for my toddler. Many people sing the same songs but often there are some changes. "A stamp costs way more than 32¢!" you say. Well, congrats on knowing that there is a money amount connected to stamps. Also, they use to be cheaper, as that's how inflation and such things work. I didn't make it a forever stamp because drawing one would be more complicated than what I did. 

Explanation: The song "If You're Happy and You Know It" has several verses of what to do to show your happiness, including clapping your hands and stomping your feet. "Stomp your feet" sounds similar to "stamp your beet" much like how "clap your hands" sounds like "clamp your hams." 

If you're happy and you know it...
