Are you Busy Joe?

Lyrics

Hi. My name is Joe.
And I work in a button factory.
I have a wife and a dog and a family.
One day, my boss came up to me
And he said "Hey Joe, are you busy?" I said "No".
"Okay!" "Push the button with your right hand."

Hi. My name is Joe.
And I work in a button factory.
I have a wife and a dog and a family.
One day, my boss came up to me
And he said "Hey Joe, are you busy?" I said "No".
"Okay!" "Push the button with your left hand."

Hi. My name is Joe.
And I work in a button factory.
I have a wife and a dog and a family.
One day, my boss came up to me
And he said "Hey Joe, are you busy?" I said "No".
"Okay!" "Push the button with your right foot."

Hi. My name is Joe.
And I work in a button factory.
I have a wife and a dog and a family.
One day, my boss came up to me
And he said "Hey Joe, are you busy?" I said "No".
"Okay!" "Push the button with your left foot."

Hi. My name is Joe.
And I work in a button factory.
I have a wife and a dog and a family.
One day, my boss came up to me
And he said "Hey Joe, are you busy?" I said "No".
"Okay!" "Push the button with your head."

Hi. My name is Joe.
And I work in a button factory.
I have a wife and a dog and a family.
One day, my boss came up to me
And he said "Hey Joe, are you busy?" I said "YES!".

This song stuck in my head because my oldest son came home (2nd grade?) singing this song. Couldn't understand him. Thought he was saying "and I work in a BUTT factory"!! Just thought I'd share my memories from 25+ years ago!!

This is an activity poem for children aka Joe and the Button Factory. You can push a button with your tongue too.

Well, the first version was not great and very incomplete, the second version in the comments more like it. The one I remember goes like this: Hi. My Name is Joe. And I work in a button factory. I have a wife, and two kids and a dog. One day, my boss came up to me and said, "Joe, are you busy?" I said "No." He said "Push this button with your right hand." You continue like the other comment says until you are pushing numerous buttons, and then the final verse: Hi. My name is Joe. And I work in a button factory. I have a wife, and two kids, and a dog. One day, my boss came up to me, and said "Joe, are you busy?" I said "YES!"

Terrible attempt. Real lyrics: Hi. My name is Joe. And I work in a button factory. I have a wife and a dog and a family. One day, my boss came up to me And he said "Hey Joe, are you busy?" I said "No". "Okay!" "Push the button with your (right hand)." (make pushing motion with hand and continue) [Repeat subsituting left hand, right foot, left foot, and head, adding each movement in addition to the others.] Final verse after all motions are active: Hi. My name is Joe. And I work in a button factory. I have a wife and a dog and a family. One day, my boss came up to me And he said "Hey Joe, are you busy?" I said YES!
