Sandcastle

Tune: “The Hokey Pokey”

You put some sand in. You take some sand out. You put some sand in
And you shape it all about. You make a sand castle…With towers all around. That’s what it’s all about! You put some shells in. You take some shells out.
You put some shells in. And you place them all about.
You make a sand castle…With shells all around.
That’s what it’s all about!


All the Pretty Little Horses

Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,

Go to sleepy little baby.

When you wake, you’ll have cake,

And all the pretty little horses.

Black and bay, dapple and grey,

Coach and six little horses,

Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,

Go to sleepy little baby.

Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,

Go to sleepy little baby,

When you wake, you’ll have cake,

And all the pretty little horses.

Way down yonder, down in the meadow,

There’s a poor wee little lamb.

The bees and the butterflies picking’ at its eyes,

The poor wee thing cried for her mammy.

Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,

Go to sleepy little baby.

When you wake, you’ll have cake,

And all the pretty little horses.


Apples and Bananas

I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas

I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas

I like to ate, ate, ate ay-ples and ba-nay-nays

I like to ate, ate, ate ay-ples and ba-nay-nays

I like to eat, eat, eat ee-ples and bee-nee-nees

I like to eat, eat, eat ee-ples and bee-nee-nees

I like to ite, ite, ite i-ples and by-ny-nys

I like to ite, ite, ite i-ples and by-ny-nys

I like to ote, ote, ote oh-ples and bo-no-nos

I like to ote, ote, ote oh-ples and bo-no-nos

I like to oot, oot, oot oo-ples and boo-noo-noos

I like to oot, oot, oot oo-ples and boo-noo-noos


Nursery Rhymes


Put on a Happy Face

Gray skies are gonna clear up

Put on a happy face

Wipe of the clouds and cheer up

Put on a happy face

Take of the gloomy mask of tragedy

It’s not your style

You’ll look so good that you’ll be glad

You decided to smile

Pick out a pleasant outlook

Stick out that noble chin

Wipe off that full-of-doubt look

Slap on a happy grin

Spread sunshine all over the place

Just put on a happy

Put on a happy face

Gray skies are gonna clear up

Put on a happy face

Wipe of the clouds and cheer up

Put on a happy face

Take of the gloomy mask of tragedy

It’s not your style

You’ll look so good that you’ll be glad

You decided to smile

Pick out a pleasant outlook

Stick out that noble chin

Wipe off that full-of-doubt look

Snap on a happy grin

Spread sunshine all over the place

Just put on a happy


Elephant

An elephant goes like this and that (pat knees)
He’s terribly big (hands high)
And he’s terrible fat (hands wide)
He has no fingers (wriggle fingers)
And he has no toes (touch toes)
But goodness gracious,
What a long nose (curl hand away from nose)
