We Have a Little Garden

    We have a little garden,
    a garden of our own,
    and every day we water there
    The seeds that we have sown.
    We love our little garden,
    and tend it with such care,
    You will not find a folded leaf
    or blighted blossom there.


Sleep, Baby, Sleep

    Sleep, baby sleep.
    Your father tends the sheep.
    Your mother shakes the dream-land tree,
    Down falls a little dream for thee.
    Sleep, baby, sleep.


A Wise Old Owl Lived in an Oak

    A wise old owl lived in an Oak.
    The more he heard, the less he spoke.
    The less he spoke, the more he heard.
    Why aren't we all like that wise old bird?


Jolly Red Nose

    Nose, nose, jolly red nose,
    And what gave thee that jolly red nose?
    Nutmeg and ginger, cinnamon and cloves,
    That's what gave me this jolly red nose.


Friday's Night Dream

    Friday's night dream
    On the Saturday told,
    Is sure to come true,
    Be it never so old.


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.

Skidamarink

    Skidamarink a dink a dink,
    skidamarink a doo,
    I love you.
    Skidamarink a dink a dink,
    skidamarink a doo,
    I love you.
    I love you in the morning,
    and in the afternoon.
    I love you in the evening,
    and underneath the moon.
    Oh, skidamarink a dink a dink,
    skidamarink a doo,
    I love you.


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 about.
    That's what it's all about.
    Hey. (left foot, right hand,
    left hand, backside, whole self.)


Jack Be Nimble

    Jack be Nimble,
    Jack be quick,
    Jack jump over the candlestick.


Brotherhood

    Fly, fly, fly 'round the universe
    Fly, fly, fly 'round the earth
    Fly, fly, fly 'round the universe
    Fly, fly, fly 'round the earth.

    My feathers touch my brother.
    My feathers touch my brother.
    Circle, circle, circle, circle,
    Circle to my brother.

    Fly, fly, fly 'round the universe
    Fly, fly, fly 'round the earth.


Hey Diddle Diddle

    Hey diddle diddle,
    the cat and the fiddle,
    the cow jumped over the moon.
    The little dog laughed to see such a sport,
    and the dish ran away with the spoon.


Oats Peas Beans

    Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow.
    Oats, peas, beans, and barley grow.
    Do you or I or anyone know
    how oats, peas, beans, and barley grow?


Sh, Sh, Sh

    Out come the stars
    Sh sh sh
    Bright shines the moon
    Sh sh sh
    Sweet sings the nightbird
    Sh sh sh

    "Go to bed
    Sleepyhead"
    Sandman said,
    "Sh, sh, sh."

A Hunting We Will Go

    A hunting we will go,
    a hunting we will go,
    Heigh-Ho the merrio,
    a hunting we will go.


Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

    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.

    When the blazing sun is gone,
    When he nothing shines upon,
    Then you show your little light,
    Twinkle twinkle all the night.


Starwish

    Star light, star bright,
    First star I see tonight,
    I wish I may,
    I wish I might,
    Have the wish
    I wish tonight.


Swing Our Hands

    Swing our hands,
    swing our hands,
    swing our hands together.
    Swing our hands,
    swing our hands,
    swing our hands in our circle now.
    (tap our toes, shake our heads,
    move our hips, bend our legs,
    stomp our feet, clap our hands.)


The North Wind

    The North wind doth blow, and we shall have snow.
    And what will poor robin do then? Poor thing!
    He'll sit in a barn and keep himself warm
    And hide his head under his wing. Poor thing!


Little Drops of Water

    Little drops of water,
    Little grains of sand,
    Make a mighty ocean,
    And the pleasant land.


Jerimiah

    Jerimiah,
    blow the fire.
    Puff, puff puff.
    (pretend to be blowing on the fire)
