Please help me thrill my 4 year old daughter with suggestions of songs that have the singer saying "Hey!" more than once.
She told us awhile back that she loves songs that have "Hey!" in them, so I want to make a playlist of "Hey!" songs. The "Hey!" should be punctuated and repeated at least once - preferably more than once. The songs don't have to be songs for children, but should be at least semi-appropriate for 4 year olds (i.e. profanity is out, but innuendo that they won't understand until they are much older is ok).
Some examples of stuff that we already have: "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" by the Beatles, "She" by the Monkees, "Get Off Of My Cloud" by the Rolling Stones, a couple traditional Greek songs. Any genre or time period is fine!
ULTIMATE FOUR YEAR OLD HEY! PLAYLIST - GO!

My son, a first-grader, sings a song to the tune of "Happy Birthday" that goes: "Happy Birthday to me / I'm a hundred and three / I still go to preschool / and I miss my mommy / my mommy's at work / she fired a jerk / she hired a monkey to do my homework." Most kid-culture folk songs my son brings home are well-known to me from my childhood, but not this one. What is the origin of this song, if it has an origin? How old is it? [more inside]

You're 3 years old. You love holding up your plastic microphone and looking at yourself in the mirror as you sing along dramatically to diva women with big voices. Who are you singing to? Give me names and songs for this compilation, and make a little girl super happy! [more inside]

Any recommendations for songs for a Ukulele songbook to be used in schools in Kenya? A friend of mine got asked to to help make suggestions for the songbook.

Walkin' talkin' dancin' catfish, you are a friend of mine
Walkin' talkin' dancin' catfish, I'm in luuuuuv with you....
These are two lines of a song that my husband has been singing to my daughter. No amount of Googling has revealed more lyrics or any information about the song. Can you help us identify the entire song? If not, can you recommend any other silly songs you like singing to kids? Thank you! Getting all the lyrics would be an awesome Father's Day accomplishment!
