Heard this one the other day. Was so glad as used to sing when doing nursery nurse training about 10 or so years ago and had forgotten how it goes. Anyway, it goes like this:

5 little men in flying saucers
flew round the world one day
they looked left and right
but they didnt like the sight
so one man flew away!

The same again using 4, 3, 2, 1.

I love this little one, makes a change from five little ducks!

My Granda used to sing this to me Morningtown Ride dunno who its by Confused Now I sing it to Robert and he loves it Very Happy

Train whistle blowing, makes a sleepy noise,
Underneath their blankets go all the girls and boys.
Heading from the station, out along the bay,
All bound for Morningtown, many miles away.

Sarah's at the engine, Tony rings the bell,
John swings the lantern to show that all is well.
Rocking, rolling, riding, out along the bay,
All bound for Morningtown, many miles away.

Maybe it is raining where our train will ride,
But all the little travelers are snug and warm inside.
Somewhere there is sunshine, somewhere there is day,
Somewhere there is Morningtown, many miles away.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

I sing to Robert Here comes the sun by the Beatles, I used to sing it to my bump Laughing

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it's all right

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Little bunny fufu hoping through the forest
scooping up the field mice and bopping them on the head

Down came the good fairy and she said
little bunny fufu I don't wast to see you
scooping up those field mice and bopping them on the head
I'm going to give give you 3 chances and if you don't behave
I'll turn you into a ghoul

So the next day
Little bunny fufu hopping through the forest
scooping up the field mice and bopping them on the head

Down came the good fairy and she said...........etc etc

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

three wee craws stittin' oan the wa
sittin' oan the wa aaa aaaa aaaa
three wee craws sittin' oan the wa
oan a cald n frosty morning

The first wee craw wis greetin fur his maw

My eyes are dim
I can not see
I have not brought my specks with me
I have not brought my specks with me

there where bees bees bees with hairy knees
in the store, in the store
there where bees bees bees with hairy knees
in the continental store

There are a couple of versions of Wiggly Woo but Dylan loves this one.

There's a worm at the bottom of the garden
And his name is Wiggly Woo
There's a worm at the bottom of the garden
And all that he can do
Is wiggle all night
And wiggle all day
the birds they flap their wings and say....

I love this thread, I'm remembering so many songs i had forgotton!

I sing alot to Ze, the songs that work a treat when she is grumpy and crying are

Tura lura Lura:

Over in Killarney,
Many years ago,
Me mither sang a song to me
In tones so sweet and low.
Just a simple little ditty,
In her good ould Irish way,
Over in Killarney,
many miles away
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,
Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,
Hush, now don't you cry!
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,
Too-ra-loo-ra-li,
Too-ra-loo-ra-loo-ral,
That's an Irish lullaby.


and you are my sunshine:

You are my sunshine
my only sunshine
you make me happy
when skys are grey
you never know dear
how much I love you
please don't take
My sunshine away

I'd forgotten half of these!was just trawelling the net for some new ones cos we're getting a bit bored of the same old!

I love this one,but I can't remember exactly how it goes,so found it on the net.It's the three bears rap and it's great fun to do

While tapping a rhythm(sp?)

A long time ago in nursery land there were three bears,
Papa bear, Mama bear and Wee bear.
They went for a walk in the forest.
Along came a girl with long golden hair,
She knocked on the door but no one was there...
Back came those three bears,
Papa bear, Mama bear and Wee bear.



'Who's been eating my porridge?' said the Papa bear
SAID THE PAPA BEAR (you have to do this in a really deep voice)

'Who's been eating my porridge?' said the Mama bear
SAID THE MAMA BEAR (in a girly voice)

'Hey Mama she bear'
Said the little wee bear...(
'Someone's been eating my porridge and it's all gone!'(in a tiny voice and do actions for it being all gone)



'Who's been sitting in my chair?' said the Papa bear
SAID THE PAPA BEAR-(again deep voice)

'Who's been sitting in my chair?' said the Mama bear
SAID THE MAMA BEAR (girly voice)

'Hey Mama she bear'

Said the little wee bear...

'Someone's been sitting in my chair and it's broken!' (tiny voice)



'Who's been sleeping in my bed?' said the Papa bear.
SAID THE PAPA BEAR (deep voice)

'Who's been sleeping in my bed?' said the Mama bear
SAID THE MAMA BEAR (girly voice)

'Hey Mama she bear'

Said the little wee bear...

'Someone's been sleeping in my bed and she's still there!'

SSHH!

Goldilocks woke up and broke up the party.



'Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye' said the Papa bear.

'Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye' said the Mama bear.

'Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye' said the Wee bear.

Sleeping bunnies (the new fave at all the groups here!)

all children to lie down

See the bunnies sleeping
Till its nearly noon
Shall we go and wake them
With a merry tune
They're so still
Are they ill
Wake up soon!!!

(kids jump up and down)
Hop little bunnies hop hop hop
Hop little bunnies hop hop hop
Hop little bunnies hop hop hop
Hop hop hop hop hop!!!

bit like a dingle dangle scarecrow - the kids go mad for it!

My nan used to sing this song to me and my brothers and sister and then my mum sang it to us when we were little but i cant remember all the words. it went..

Soldier, soldier will you marry me with your musket, pipe and drum?
Oh no sweet maid, i cannot marry you for i have no shirt to put on.
So off she went, to her grandfather chest
And brought him the shirt of the very very best,
And the soldier put it on.

Then it repeats it just with different items of clothing, then at the end it goes somwthing like

Soldier, soldier will you marry me with your musket, pipe and drum?
Oh no sweet maid, i cannot marry you for i have a family at home.

I dont know if thats the words though? Laughing

Is it possible for a gorilla and a mouse to mate? I definitely think it is! the resulting offspring would probably have the personality to match some of the mods on here???
