Old Lady Leary

Old Lady Leary

Before singing this song, divide the group into 4 and have a different counselor or person lead each section, cuing them for their part.  Sing the first part together, then break it up in order.  Groups 1 & 2 can sing in normal voices, but it’s fun for group 3 to sing their lines in a high pitch and for group 4 to sing their lines in a deep gruff firefighter voice.

Late last night, while we were all in bed.
Old lady Leary left a lantern in the shed
and when the cow kicked it over, she winked her eye and said
“It’ll be a hot time in the old town tonight”

Group 1: Fire! Fire! Fire!
Group 2: Water! Water! Water!
Group 3: Save My Child! Save My Child!
Group 4: Jump, Lady, Jump!
