She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain

She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain

I loved this song, including the little words in between.  All the words in parenthesis are shouted, not really sung.  We also made up little actions to them, like the motions of a truck horn during the “toot toot”.  Little pantomimes make the song extra fun.

She’ll be coming round the mountain
When she comes

(Toot, toot!)

She’ll be coming round the mountain
When she comes

(Toot, toot!)

She’ll be coming round the mountain,
She’ll be coming round the mountain,
She’ll be coming round the mountain
When she comes

(Toot, toot!)

She’ll be driving six white horses
When she comes

(Whoa back!)

She’ll be driving six white horses
When she comes

(Whoa back!)

She’ll be driving six white horses,
She’ll be driving six white horses,
She’ll be driving six white horses
When she comes

(Whoa back! Toot, toot!)

Oh, we’ll all go out to meet her
When she comes

(Hi babe!)

Oh, we’ll all go out to meet her
When she comes

(Hi babe!)

Oh, we’ll all go out to meet her,
We’ll all go out to meet her,
We’ll all go out to meet her
When she comes

(Hi babe!
Whoa back! Toot, toot!)

She’ll be wearing red pajamas
When she comes

(Scratch, scratch)

She’ll be wearing red pajamas
When she comes

(Scratch, scratch)

She’ll be wearing red pajamas,
She’ll be wearing red pajamas,
She’ll be wearing red pajamas
When she comes

(Scratch, scratch, Hi babe!
Whoa back! Toot, toot!)

She will have to sleep with Grandma
When she comes

(She snores!)

She will have to sleep with Grandma
When she comes

(She snores!)

She will have to sleep with Grandma,
She’ll have to sleep with Grandma,
She will have to sleep with Grandma
When she comes

Little Bunny Foo Foo

Little Bunny Foo Foo

This is a really fun song, as kids love the motions of the bopping field mice on the head.  A lot of schools teach this, at least that’s where I first learned it.

(Chorus) Little bunny Foo Foo
Hopping through the forest
Scooping up the field mice
And bopping ‘em on the head

Down came the good fairy and she said

“Little Bunny Foo Foo,
I don’t want to see you
Scooping up the field mice
And boppin’ ‘em on the head.
I’ll give you three chances,
And if you don’t behave
I’ll turn you into a goon!”

The next day:

Chorus

Down came the good fairy and she said

“Little Bunny Foo Foo,
I don’t want to see you
Scooping up the field mice
And boppin’ ‘em on the head.
I’ll give you two more chances,
And if you don’t behave
I’ll turn you into a goon!”

The next day:

Chorus

Down came the good fairy and she said

“Little Bunny Foo Foo,
I don’t want to see you
Scooping up the field mice
And boppin’ ‘em on the head.
I’ll give you one more chance,
And if you don’t behave
I’ll turn you into a goon!”

The next day:

Chorus

Down came the good fairy and she said

“Little Bunny Foo Foo,
I don’t want to see you
Scooping up the field mice
And boppin’ ‘em on the head.
I gave you three chances
And you didn’t behave
Now you’re a goon! POOF!!”

The moral of the story is:
HARE TODAY, GOON TOMORROW

Banjo

Banjo

This song is sung with a southern twang, and during the banjo parts, play a banjo sound. It’s a fun song for kids.

I like to play my old banjo
And place it on my knee
But now the strings are all broken,
and It’s no good to me.
I took it to the music shop
To see what they could do.
And now my strings are good as new and I can play for you!

Song That Never Ends

Song That Never Ends

Of course, this can be a horrifically annoying song for any adult, to realize the consequences before you teach a child this!

This is the song that never ends
It just goes on and on, my friend
Some people started singing it
Forever just because…(Repeat)



(Don’t worry, it ends at 1:51!)

Tomba Tomba

Tomba Tomba

This is a fun song, though you have to listen to the song to get the rhythm going.

Tomba Tomba (repeat)
A riki tiki tomba (repeat)
A moosa moosa moosa (repeat)
Wayla wayla wayla wayla (repeat)

Repeat the first three lines louder and louder each time, but do the “Wayla” do it very softly

On the final time, sing the first part soft and the “Wayla” loud.

Unfortunately, I don’t know where you might find this song, but as soon as I find it, I’ll update this!

Moonshadow

Moonshadow

Yes, the song Moonshadow was made famous by Cat Stevens, though I learned this song at camp long before I knew anything about Cat Stevens.  We sang it frequently by the fire as some of the last songs of the evening to wind down before bed.

(Chorus) I’m being followed by a moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow
Leaping and hopping on a moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow

And if I ever lose my hands
Lose my plough, lose my land
Oh, if I ever lose my hands
Oh, well…
I won’t have to work no more

And if I ever lose my eyes
If my colors all run dry
Yes, if I ever lose my eyes
Oh well …
I won’t have to cry no more.

Chorus

And if I ever lose my legs
I won’t moan and I won’t beg
Oh if I ever lose my legs
Oh well…
I won’t have to walk no more.

And if I ever lose my mouth
All my teeth, north and south
Yes, if I ever lose my mouth
Oh well…
I won’t have to talk…

Did it take long to find me
I ask the faithful light
Ooh did it take long to find me
And are you going to stay the night.

Chorus
Moon shadow, moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow


This is the “Daddy Plays Acoustic Rock Lullabies” Version, not Cat Stevens”
