Two little ears to hear each sound,
One little nose to smell what's sweet,
One little mouth that likes to eat.

On my toe there is a bee,
Now he's crawling up on me,
Past my tummy, past me nose,
On my head where my hair grows.

Now he's crawling down on me,
Past my tummy,
Past my knee,
On my toe, take THAT YOU BEE!

they are all hiding where no one can see.
They are coming out now, they are all alive,
One, two, three, four, five.

Three time around went our gallant ship, and she sank to the bottom of the sea.....glub, glub, glub...

Up jumps a little fish and up jumps me!
 
Two times around,......

All the kings horses and all the kings men couldn't put Humpty together again!

Down came the rain and wash the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain, and
the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again.

When the song stops it will find it's place in someone's hand.
Who has the heart?   I have the heart.
