It’s Music Time again.  Does your mind go blank when it comes to thinking of songs to sing?  Would you like a little help?  Well, I have listed 10 songs below that I know children love to sing. 

Why not select one and try it with your children?

1.Twinkle, twinkle

Twinkle, twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are! Up above the world so high, Like a diamond in the sky. Twinkle, twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are

 

2. Baa, baa black sheep

Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?

Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full!

One for the master,

One for the dame,

And one for the little boy

Who lives down the lane

 

3. Horsey horsey

Horsey horsey don't you stop

Just let your feet go clippety-clop

Your tail goes swish and the wheels go round

Giddy up, we're homeward bound.

 

4. Old MacDonald

Old MacDonald had a farm E-I-E-I-O!

And on that farm he had some chicks, E-I-E-I-O! (insert animal name)

With a chick-chick here, and a chick-chick there

Here a chick there a chick, everywhere a chick-chick! (insert animal sound)

Old MacDonald had a farm E-I-E-I-O!

 

5. Five little ducks

Five little ducks went swimming one day,

Over the hills and far away.

Mummy duck said, “Quack, quack, quack, quack,”

But only four little ducks came back.

Four, Three, Two, One

One little duck went swimming one day,

Over the hills and far away.

Mummy duck said, “Quack, quack, quack, quack,”

And five little ducks came back.

 

6. She’ll be coming around the mountain

She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes,

She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes,

She'll be coming round the mountain, coming round the mountain,

She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes,

Singing ay, ay, yippee, yippee, ay (ye har)

Singing ay, ay, yippee, yippee, ay (ye har)

Singing ay, ay, yippee, ay, ay, yippee,

ay, ay, yippee, yippee, ay (ye har)

She'll be wearing pink pyjamas when she comes

She'll be wearing pink pyjamas when she comes

She'll be wearing pink pyjamas, wearing pink pyjamas

She'll be wearing pink pyjamas when she comes

Singing ay, ay, yippee, yippee, ay (ye har)

Singing ay, ay, yippee, yippee, ay (ye har)

Singing ay, ay, yippee, ay, ay, yippee,

ay, ay, yippee, yippee, ay (ye har)

 

7. Row, row, your boat

Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the stream

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily

Life is but a dream

Rock, rock rock your boat

Gently to and fro

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily

Into the water we go. SPLASH!

Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the stream

If you see a crocodile

Don’t forget to scream ARGHHH!

 

8. Incy wincy spider

Incy Wincy spider climbed up the water spout

Down came the rain and washed the spider out

Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain

So Incy Wincy spider climbed up the spout again

 

9. The wheels on the bus

The wheels on the bus go round and round,

round and round,

round and round.

The wheels on the bus go round and round,

all day long

Insert other events for additional verses: doors, open and shut; wipers, swish swish; children, up and down….

 

10. 1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive.

One, two, three, four, five,

Once I caught a fish alive,

Six, seven, eight, nine, ten,

Then I let it go again.

Why did you let it go?

Because it bit my finger so.

Which finger did it bite?

This little finger on my right.

 

I hope you and the children find one that you enjoy!
