A bouncing we will go

A bouncing we will go, a bouncing we will go


I have two eyes to see with

I have two eyes to see with, I have two feet to run


Tick tock, tick tock

Tick tock, tick tock, I'm a little cuckoo clock


Zoom, zoom, zoom

Zoom, zoom, zoom, we're going to the moon!


Roly Poly

Roly poly, roly poly, in, in, in.


Let's go walking

Let's go walking, walking, walking, let's go walking far, far away!

Two little dickie birds and two little parrots

Two little dickie birds sitting on a wall, one named Peter, one named Paul.


The Goodbye Rhyme

With my two hands I can clap, clap, clap!


Two little fishies

Two little fishies, side by side, swim through the water, swim through the tide.


Sitting in a high chair

Sitting in a high chair, a big chair, my chair.                             


Where oh where?

Where oh where are babies fingers? Where oh where are babies toes?


The hello song

I wonder what your name is, I wonder if you know?
