Good Morning Dear Earth – by Tim Cain

Good morning dear earth, good morning dear sun

Good morning dear trees, and the flowers every one

Good morning dear bees and the birds in the trees

Good morning to you and good morning to me (good morning)

 

Mr. Sun

Oh Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun

Please shine down on me;

Oh Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun

Hiding behind a tree;

We little children are asking you

To please come out so we can play with you.

Oh Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun

Please shine down on, please shine down on

Please shine down on me. (ba-dum-ba-dum- WHEE!)

We know you’re hiding in there

We know you’re crouching down

We really want to see you

Come OUT, little clown!

I’ll Sing a Song – by Ella Jenkins

I’ll sing a song, and you’ll sing a song

And we’ll sing a song together

I’ll sing a song, and you’ll sing a song

In warm and wintry weather!   (I’ll clap a song, stamp, etc)

 

Clap Your Hands

Clap, clap, clap your hands,

Clap your hands together.

Clap, clap, clap your hands,

Clap your hands together.

Clap a little faster now, clap along with me.

Clap a little faster now, clap along with me. (stamp, pat knees, etc.)

 

Morning on the Farm

When cows get up in the morning they always say “good day” (repeat 2x)

They say, moo, moo, moo, moo, that is what they say. 
(repeat with various animals: sheep, dogs, etc.)

 

Rockabye Your Bear 

Everybody clap (clap three times)

Everybody sing (la, la, la, la, la)

Bow to your partner, and then you turn around (YIPPEE!)

Hands up in the air, rockabye your bear,

Bears are all asleep, sh, sh, sh, Bears are all asleep, sh, sh, sh.

 

We’ll Sing Goodbye

We’ll sing goodbye, our time is done

We’ll sing goodbye, now everyone

We’ll sing goodbye, this song will tell

We make music very well.

 

If all the raindrops…

If all the raindrops were lemon drops and gumdrops

Oh what a rain that would be.

I’d stand outside with my mouth open wide,

AH AH AH AH AH AH AH AH AH AH

If all the raindrops were lemon drops & gum drops
Oh what a rain that would be!

 

Boa Constrictor – (based on Shel Silverstein lyrics as performed by Peter, Paul and Mary)

Oh I’m being swallowed by a boa constrictor

I’m being swallowed by a boa constrictor

I’m being swallowed by a boa constrictor

And I don’t like it very much.

 

Oh no, oh no, he swallowed my toe, he swallowed my toe

Oh gee, oh gee, he’s up to my knee, he’s up to my knee

Oh fiddle, oh fiddle, he’s reached my middle, he’s reached my middle

Oh heck, oh heck, he’s up to my neck, he’s up to my neck

Oh dread, oh dread, he swallowed my (GULP)

 

Down by the Bay – by Raffi

Down by the bay, where the watermelons grow

Back to my home, I dare not go

For if I do, my mother will say

Did you ever see a moose kissing a goose

Down by the bay.   (Children provide rhymes- 3’s and 4’s)

The Frog Song

5 green and speckled frogs
Sat on a speckled log

Eating the most delicious bugs - yum, yum

One jumped into the pool,

where it was nice and cool

Now there are 4 green speckled frogs - ribbit, ribbit (repeat counting down)

Ants Go Marching

The ants go marching 1 by 1, hurrah, hurrah (repeat)

The ants go marching 1 by 1, 

The little one stops to see the suck his thumb,

And they go all marching down, to the ground, to get out, of the rain - boom, boom, boom

2 by 2 to tie his shoe

3 by 3 to tap his knee

4 by 4 to close the door
