    We sing heaps to Abby! She loves it! Songs we sing are:

    4 and 20 black birds, rub a dub dub, 5 little ducks, hey diddle diddle, twinkle twinkle, ABCD, 12345 once i caught a fish alive etc.

    and a strange little song that my mum and nan useto sing to me... they tell me its a real song but if it is, someone has changed the words over the years as they are very odd. Mum laughs when i ask her about it and tells me its a real song?!

    it goes:

    (boy voice)
    If i give you, a little straw hat
    With 7 pounds of sasagues hanging down the back
    Will you marry, marry, marry, marry
    Will you marry me?

    (girl voice)
    If you give me,a little straw hat
    With 7 pounds of sasagues hanging down the back
    I wont marry, marry, marry, marry,
    I wont marry you!

    (boy voice)
    If i give you, a watering can
    To water your flowers till the sun goes down
    Will you marry, marry marry marry
    Will you marry me?

    (girl voice)
    If you give me a watering can
    To water my flowers till the sun goes down
    I wont marry, marry marry marry
    I wont marry you!



    (boy voice)
    If I give you, a little motor car,
    To ride around the streets with your ma and pa,
    Will you marry, marry, marry, marry
    Will you marry me?

    (girl voice)
    If you give me a little motor car,
    To ride around the streets with my ma and pa,
    I wont marry, marry, marry, marry
    I wont marry you!

    (boy voice)
    If I give you, the key to my chest
    And all the money that i posess
    Will you marry, marry, marry, marry
    Will you marry me?

    (girl voice)
    If you give me, the key to your chest
    And all the money that you posess
    I Will you marry, marry, marry, marry
    I will marry you!

    (this next bit is in a cross talking tone! pmsl)
    (boy voice)
    Ha, Ha, Ha! Arent you funny!
    You dont want me, you just want my money!
    I wont marry, marry, marry
    I wont marry you!

    I told you it was an odd little song! If anyone knowa anything about it, where it came from or the propper words id love to hear about it!!

    I sing if you are happy and you know it ...clap your hands/nod your head etc
    you know it

    Head,shoulders,knees and toes ...

    Twinkle ,twinkle little star ...

    we have a book with this song

    Jesus loves me! This I know,
    For the Bible tells me so.
    Little ones to Him belong;
    They are weak, but He is strong.

    Yes, Jesus loves me!
    Yes, Jesus loves me!
    Yes, Jesus loves me!
    The Bible tells me so.

    Jesus loves me! This I know,
    As He loved so long ago,
    Taking children on His knee,
    Saying, “Let them come to Me.”

    Jesus loves me still today,
    Walking with me on my way,
    Wanting as a friend to give
    Light and love to all who live.

    I love the Barney song and thanks for the other new ones.

    So cute .... pity I can't carry a tune but they still love me.

    I always sing Tori the Grand Old Duke of York when she is upset and she smiles and giggles.
    I also sing all my loving, althought these are the only real words I know.
    Close your eyes and Ill Kiss you, tomorrow Ill miss you- Im sending all my loving to you.....
    We also sing her alot of Harry Connick Jnr stuff, because we bought a CDof his on our honeymoon (when Igot preg) and I played it all throughmy pregnancy so she seems tofind those songs soothing

    I always sang "you are my sunshine' to my youngest. He has just turned three and when he wasnt well last month i cuddled him and sang it to him for the first time in ages and he dropped off to sleep in my arms after about 60 seconds. It was a wonderful loving flashback to when he was a tiny baby!
