Baa Baa Black Sheep

Leo the Lion

Five Fat Sausages

Five little ducks

Miss Polly

Dingle, Dangle Scarecrow

I wonder what your name is

The wheels on the bus





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.

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.

Leo the Lion

Leo the Lion
Is the king of the jungle
His jaws are open wide!
Roar!
Leo the lion
When he roars it's a warning
That you better run away and hide!
Roar!

Five Fat Sausages

Five fat sausages frying in a pan,
(Hold up five fingers)
All of a sudden one went 'BANG!'
(Clap hands loudly)

Four fat sausages frying in a pan,
(Hold up four fingers)
All of a sudden one went 'BANG!'
(Clap hands loudly)

Three fat sausages frying in a pan,
(Hold up three fingers)
All of a sudden one went 'BANG!'
(Clap hands loudly)


Two fat sausages frying in a pan,
(Hold up two fingers)
All of a sudden one went 'BANG!'
(Clap hands loudly)

One fat sausage, frying in a pan,
(Hold up one finger)
All of a sudden it went 'Bang!'
(Clap hands loudly)

And there were NO sausages left!
(No fingers left up)

Five little ducks

Five little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
'Quack, quack, quack, quack.'
But only four little ducks came back.

Four little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
'Quack, quack, quack, quack.'
But only three little ducks came back.

Three little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
'Quack, quack, quack, quack.'
But only two little ducks came back.

Two little ducks
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
'Quack, quack, quack, quack.'
But only one little duck came back.

One little duck
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
'Quack, quack, quack, quack.'
But no little ducks came back.

So mother duck
Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
The sad mother duck said
'Quack, quack, quack, quack.'
And all of the five little ducks came back.

Miss Polly

Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick
So she called for a Doctor to come quick, quick, quick.

The doctor came with his bag and his hat,
And he knocked on the door with a rat-a-tat-tat.

He looked at the dolly and he shook his head,
He said 'Miss Polly, put her straight to bed.'

He wrote on a paper for a pill, pill, pill,
'I'll be back in the morning with my bill, bill, bill.'

Dingle, Dangle Scarecrow

When all the cows were sleeping
And the sun had gone to bed
Up jumped the scarecrow
And this is what he said:

I'm a dingle, dangle scarecrow
With a flippy floppy hat
I can shake my hands like this
And shake my feet like that.

When all the hens were roosting
And the moon behind the cloud
Up jumped the scarecrow
And shouted very loud:

I'm a dingle, dangle scarecrow
With a flippy floppy hat
I can shake my hands like this
And shake my feet like that.

I wonder what your name is


I wonder what your name is,
I wonder if you know.
Your name is...?
Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello.
(A good song for learning new names and helping the memory)

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 through the town.
(Roll hands over each other)

The wipers on the bus go 'Swish, swish, swish,
Swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish'
The wipers on the bus go 'Swish, swish, swish'
All through the town.
(Put arms together in front of you and ‘swish’ like windshield wipers)

The door on the bus goes open and shut
Open and shut, open and shut
The door on the bus goes open and shut
All through the town.
(Cover eyes with hands on ‘shut’ and uncover them on ‘open’)

The horn on the bus goes 'Beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep'
The horn on the bus goes 'Beep, beep, beep'
All through the town.
(Pretend to honk horn)

The fuel on the bus goes 'Glunk, glunk, glunk
Glunk, glunk, glunk, glunk, glunk, glunk'
The fuel on the bus goes 'Glunk, glunk, glunk'
All through the town.
(Pretend to fill tank using pointer finger as nozzle)

The money on the bus goes 'Clink, clink, clink,
Clink, clink, clink, clink, clink, clink'
The money on the bus goes 'Clink, clink, clink'
All through the town.
(Pretend to put money in cash box on bus)

The baby on the bus says, 'Wah, wah, wah!
Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah!'
The baby on the bus says, 'Wah, wah, wah!'
All through the town.
(Fisted hands in front of eyes and rub them like baby crying)

The people on the bus say, 'Shh, shh, shh,
Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh'
The people on the bus say, “'hh, shh, shh'
All through the town.
(Put pointer finger to mouth to ‘shhh’)

The mummy on the bus says, ' love you,
I love you, I love you'
The daddy on the bus says, 'I love you, too'
All through the town.
(Point to self on ‘I’, right hand over heart on ‘love’,
and point to another on ‘you’)
