Alphabet Song
Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush
Hokey-Pokey
Hop a Little, Jump a Little
Ice Cream
If You're Happy And You Know It
I'm a Little Teapot
It's Raining, It's Pouring
London Bridge is Falling down
Old MacDonald Had A Farm
Rain Rain go Away
Ring-a-Ring o' Roses
Rock a Bye Baby
Round and Round the Garden
Row, Row, Row Your Boat
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
The Ants Go Marching
The Wheels On The Bus
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Wheels On The Bus

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes

Head, shoulders, knees, and toes,
Knees and toes,
Head, shoulders, knees, and toes,
Knees and toes,
Eyes, and ears and mouth and nose,
Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes.

Eyes and ears and mouth and nose,
Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes,
Head, shoulders, knees and toes,
Knees and toes.

REPEAT - Usually many times :-)

Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush

Here we go round the mulberry bush,
The mulberry bush, the mulberry bush,
Here we go round the mulberry bush,
So early in the morning

This is the way we wash our clothes,
Wash our clothes, wash our clothes,
This is the way we wash our clothes,
So early Monday morning

This is the way we iron our clothes,
Iron our clothes, iron our clothes,
This is the way we iron our clothes,
So early Tuesday morning

This is the way we sweep the floor,
Sweep the floor, sweep the floor,
This is the way we sweep the floor,
So early Wednesday morning

This is the way we mend our clothes,
Mend our clothes, mend our clothes,
This is the way we mend our clothes,
So early Thursday morning

This is the way we clean the house,
Clean the house, clean the house,
This is the way we clean the house,
So early Friday morning

This is the way we bake our bread,
Bake our bread, bake our bread,
This is the way we bake our bread,
So early Saturday morning

This is the way we get dressed up,
Get dressed up, get dressed up,
This is the way we get dressed up,
So early Sunday morning

Hokey-Pokey

You put your right foot in,
You put your right foot out;
You put your right foot in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey-Pokey,

And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

You put your left foot in,
You put your left foot out;
You put your left foot in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey-Pokey,

And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

You put your right hand in,
You put your right hand out;
You put your right hand in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey-Pokey,

And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

You put your left hand in,
You put your left hand out;
You put your left hand in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey-Pokey,

And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

You put your right side in,
You put your right side out;
You put your right side in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey-Pokey,

And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

You put your left side in,
You put your left side out;
You put your left side in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey-Pokey,

And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

You put your nose in,
You put your nose out;
You put your nose in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey-Pokey,

And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

You put your tail in,
You put your tail out;
You put your tail in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey-Pokey,

And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

You put your head in,
You put your head out;
You put your head in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey-Pokey,

And you turn yourself around.
That's what it's all about!

You put your whole self in,
You put your whole self out;
You put your whole self in,
And you shake it all about.
You do the Hokey-Pokey,
And you turn yourself around.
