    The Fishie Song
    Down in the meadow in an itty-bitty pool
    Lived three little fishies and the mummy fishie too
    "Swim!" said the Mummy Fishie. "Swim if you can!"
    So they swam and they swam right over the dam.

    a bom-bom diddum daddum waddem ooh!
    a bom-bom diddum daddum waddem ooh!
    bom-bom diddum daddum waddem ooh!
    So they swam and they swam right over the dam.

    "Stop," said the Mummy Fish, "or you will be lost!"
    But those three little fishies, they did not want to be bossed.
    Away they swam and they felt so free
    As they swam and they swam right out to sea.

    a bom-bom diddum daddum waddem ooh!
    a bom-bom diddum daddum waddem ooh!
    bom-bom diddum daddum waddem ooh!
    As they swam and they swam right out to sea.

    Those little fishies, they had so much fun
    They did no work til the day was done.
    They played and they played; they thought it a lark
    Til all of a sudden they saw a shark

    a bom-bom diddum daddum waddem ooh!
    a bom-bom diddum daddum waddem ooh!
    bom-bom diddum daddum waddem ooh!
    Til all of a sudden they saw a shark

    "Gosh," said the fishies, "just look at the whales!"
    Then as quick as they could they turned on their tails
    Back to the pool in the meadow they swam
    They swam and they swam back over that dam.

    a bom-bom diddum daddum waddem ooh!
    a bom-bom diddum daddum waddem ooh!
    bom-bom diddum daddum waddem ooh!
    They swam and they swam back over that dam - ooh!

    Never smile at a crocodile
    No you can't be friends with Mr Crocodile
    Don't be taken in
    By his toothsome grin
    He's imagining how well you'd fit within his skin

    Never smile at a crocodile
    Never tip your hat and stop to talk a while
    Never run, walk away
    Say goodbye and not good day
    Clear the aisle and never smile at Mr Crocodile

    You may be very well bred
    Lots of etiquette in your head
    But there's always some special case
    Time or place
    To forget
    Etiquette

    Remember!

    Never smile...

    lol! He LOVES Milo Tweenie!
    I've got to put a stop to him saying 'daaaaaarn-cing' instead of dan-cing though!
    I'm encouraging him to sing with Grandad Tweenie, I like his accent.

    Ok people, I need "location" songs for 0-4 year olds, so songs or rhymes about "in" "on" "over" "under" "behind" "infront" etc.

    Any suggestions? All I canthink of is the hokey-pokey.

    Here we go Loopy Loo - that's a bit like the Hokey Cokey though.

    The bear went over the mountain
    The bear went over the mountain
    The bear went over the mountain
    To see what he could see

    But all that he could see
    But all that he could see

    Was the other side of the mountain
    The other side of the mountain
    The other side of the mountain
    Was all that he could see



    How about something like She'll be coming round the mountain, but as well as wearing pink pyjamas and riding 6 white horses, maybe she'll be coming over a bridge, or coming through a tunnel, or coming behind an elephant, or before an alien invasion, or in a pirate ship... whatever else takes his interest!

    Default Vincent

    His favorite song is "Vincent" by Don McLean and I also sing Broadway songs to him :-) I think he will grow up a singer!

    I was singing to ds the other day and having trouble remembering some lines from songs, he just loves music and laughs at my terrible singing. Anyway i googled the words to the frogs song and it gave me a link to here, i never even thought of looking on belly belly (Derr). Should have known you can find everything on here.lol

    i don't know if this is the right spot to post this, but i took my ds1 who is two to his first session of mini maestros this morning. if anyone else out there (all of us i am sure) has a littlie that loves to sing and dance then i highly recommend it. it was absolutely brilliant. my ds1 has been buzzing all morning from the songs and dances he has already learnt.
