Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.
And Eye and ears, and a mouth and a nose.
Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.

My Bonnie

My Bonnie lies over the ocean,
My Bonnie lies over the sea,
My Bonnie lies over the ocean,
Oh bring back my Bonnie to me.
Oh Bring back, bring back,
Oh bring back my Bonnie to me, to me; [x2]

[Action: As you sing each word beginning with the letter B, change from a standing to a sitting position and vice versa. All should be standing at the end of the song. When you have mastered these movements, sing it again, faster.]

My Bonnie (variation)

My Bonnie's complexion was makeup,
her face, it was beauteous to see;
Until she got caught in a rainstorm,
Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me.

My Bonnie leaned over the gas tank,
the height of its contents to see;
I lighted a match to assist her,
Oh, bring back my Bonnie to me.

My Bonnie has tuberculosis,
my Bonnie has only one lung,
My Bonnie can cough up raw oysters,
and roll them around on her tongue.

Last night as I lay on my pillow,
last night as I lay on my bed,
I stuck my feet out the window,
next morning my neighbors were dead.

My breakfast lies over the ocean,
My dinner lies over the sea,
My stomach is in a commotion,
Don't mention my supper to me.

CHORUS
Bring back, bring back,
Oh bring back my bucket to me, to me . . .

I really felt rotten this morning,
They tell me I really looked pale,
My stomach gave adequate warning,
To lean far out over the rail.

The sound of a stomach in motion,
A murmuring noise inside me,
I looked down and there on the water,
Was breakfast and dinner and tea.

Singing in the Rain

I'm singing in the rain, just singing in the rain.
What a glorious feeling, I'm happy again.
Thumbs up! [Group echoes.]
Toot-ta-ta-da, toot-ta-ta-da, toot-DA-DA. [Group echoes.]

[Add each of the following, in turn:]
Elbows in, Knees together, Toes together, Bums out
Chest out, Chin down, Tongue out

She'll be coming round the mountain

She'll be comin' 'round the mountain when she comes. (Whoo, whoo!)
She'll be comin' 'round the mountain when she comes. (Whoo, whoo!)
She'll be comin' 'round the mountain,
blowing steam off like a fountain,
She'll be comin' 'round the mountain when she comes.

She'll be driving six white horses, when she comes,
(Whoa, there!) [etc.]

Oh, we'll all go out to meet her when she comes. (Hi babe!)

She'll be wearing silk pajamas when she comes, [Wolf whistle.]

And, we'll wear our bright red woolies when she comes, (Scratch, scratch!)
Oh, we'll kill the old red rooster, (Hack, hack!)
cause he don't crow like he use ter.

Oh, we'll all have chicken and dumplings when she comes, (Yum, yum! / Yuck, yuck!)
Oh, we'll all have indigestion when she comes, (Burp, burp!)

Birdie

Way up in the sky,
The big birdies fly,
While down in the nest,
The little birds rest.
With a wing on the left,
And a wind on the right,
The little birdies sleep
all through the night.

SHHHH!! The birdies are sleeping!

The bright sun comes out,
The dew falls away,
"Good morning! good morning!"
The little birds say.
IF YOU'RE HAPPY AND YOU KNOW IT

If you're happy and you know it
Clap your hands (x2)
If you're happy and you know it
And you really want to show it
If you're happy and you know it
Clap your hands

If you're happy and you know it
...nod your head...
...stamp your feet...
...shout hello...
...do all four...

On Top Of Spaghetti

[Tune: On Top of Old Smokey.]

On top of Spaghetti, all covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed.

It rolled off the table, and onto the floor,
And then my poor meatball rolled out of the door.

It rolled down the garden, and under a bush,
And then my poor meatball was nothing but mush!

The mush was as tasty, as tasty could be,
And then the next summer it grew into a tree.

The tree was all covered, all covered with moss,
And on it grew meatballs, all covered with sauce.

So if you have spaghetti, all covered with cheese,
Hold onto your meatball, 'cause someone might sneeze.

Gory Gory

[Tune: Battle Hymn of the Republic]

My sergeant major jumped from 70 thousand feet
My sergeant major jumped from 70 thousand feet
My sergeant major jumped from 70 thousand feet
But he ain't going to jump no more.

CHORUS
Gory, gory, what a heck of a way to die.
Gory, gory, what a heck of a way to die.
Gory, gory, what a heck of a way to die.
Well, he ain't going to jump no more.

He jumped from 70 thousand feet without a parachute...
We scraped him off the tarmac like a dab of strawberry jam...
We put him in an envelope and sent him home to mum...
She put him on the mantelpiece for everyone to see...

The Animal Fair

We went to the animal fair,
the birds and the beasts were there,
By the light of the moon the big baboon
was combing his auburn hair.
The monkey, he got drunk,
and fell on the elephant's trunk,
The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees,
And that was the end of the monk-ey, monk-ey, monk...

Little Bunny Fru-fru

Little bunny Fru-fru, hoppin' though the forest,
Scoopin' up the field mice and battin' them on the head.
Along came the good fairy, and she said:
"Little bunny Fru-fru, I don't want to see you
Scoopin' up the field mice and battin' them on the head.
I'll give you three chances to change your ways, and if you
don't obey, I'll turn you into a goon."

So the next day . . . [Repeat-two more chances . . . ]
So the next day . . . [Repeat-one more chance . . . ]
So the next day . . . [Repeat]

"I gave you three chances to change your ways and you didn't obey, so now I'm turning you into goon. Pooff! You're a goon.

And the moral of this story is . . .
. . . 'Hare today and goon tomorrow!'

If I Was Not Upon the Stage

If I was not upon the stage one place I'd rather be...
If I was not upon the stage,
A policeman I would be.
I'd sing my song, all day long,
"Hey, You, Get off my street!"

If I was not upon the stage one place I'd rather be...
If I was not upon the stage,
A gym teacher I would be.
I'd sing my song, all day long,
"Up and up and do-o-o-wn!"
"Hey, You, Get off my street!"

If I was not upon the stage one place I'd rather be...
If I was not upon the stage,
An engineer I would be.
"Two feet by four feet, Bam-Bam-Bam!"
"Up and up and do-o-o-wn!"
"Hey, You, Get off my street!"

A gardener I would be
"Dig a hole, plant a seed, wait until it grows"

A waitress I would be
"Here's your food, here's your drink, here's a bag, Oops!"

A painter I would be
"Here's a pot, here's a brush, slap it on the door"
