Thread: Favourite nursery rhymes and songs

    Default Songs..

    Tess LOVES us singing the old Cab Calloway song Minnie the Moocher (from the Blues Brothers movie)

    Now folks let me tell you the story about MInnie (Tessie) the moocher
    She was a lowdown hoochie-coocher
    She was the roughest, toughes frail
    But Minnie (Tessie) had a heart as big as a whale

    Hidey Hidey Hidey Hi (Hidey Hidey Hidey Hi)
    Hodey Hodey Hodey Ho (Hodey Hodey Hodey Ho)
    Heedey Heedey Heedey He (Heedey Heedey Heedey He)

    etc etc.

    I think we must look funny singing the Hidey Hi's as she always cracks up and laughs and laughs at us which eggs us on.

    It's on You Tube if you need the music!

    hmmm.......my favourite is
    please open your umbrella.

    please open your umbrella,
    please open your umbrella,
    please open your umbrella,
    and shield me from the rain

    The shower is nearly over,
    The shower is nearly over,
    The shower is nearly over,
    so shut it up again.

    its very easy for small ones to remember

    Here are 2 that I wrote myself. We sing in the bath and I keep running out of songs before the bath is over.

    The Little Mer-man

    Deep beneath the ocean
    Far beneath the sea
    lives a little merman
    who's much like you and me
    He has ten little fingers
    and a little button nose,
    but down where his feet should be
    there's fins instead of toes

    oh funny little merman
    swimming in the sea
    funny little merman
    he's just like you and me
    he has a bright red mouth to kiss
    and little shell like ears
    and a mummy and a daddy
    to take away his fears

    oh funny little merman
    swimming in the sea
    funny little merman
    he's much like you and me
    he has two bright blue eyes to see
    and light brown wavey hair
    he has two arms to hold you tight
    and lots of love to share

    funny little merman
    swimming in the sea

    he's much like you and me

    there's fins instead of toes.




    Little Black penguin

    Little back penguin
    sitting on a rock
    little black penguin
    started to hop
    he hop hopped left
    he hop hopped right
    he hopped all day
    and he hopped all night

    DS loves the chicken dance
    No words, but the actions are pretty much self explainatory

    When I was pregnant with DD3, my older two and I would sing her Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and it's now her favourite song. If she's crying, we break out in song and she starts giggling and coo'ing. I didn't really sing to my older two and wishing I did.

    Always stuck with the basics; twinkle twinkle and row, row, row your boat.
