2. Bingo Schmingo the Song

There was a farm had a dog, Bingo was his name oh…
B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O and Bingo was his name, ohhhhhhh!

Well, the farmer not only had a dog named Bingo, but he had a bad memory.Every day he’d go out to have the dog bring him his newspaper but he couldn’t remember the dog’s name… so he’d try a different name every day…

Use the beginning letter of kids’ names…..

3. Smelly Feet   

You have such smelly feet,
Such awfully smelly feet.
I take a whiff, I take a sniff,
and I simply must repeat:
Your feet they really stink,
Please put them in the sink.
My golly, my gosh, I wish you would wash
Your smelly feet!

You have such yummy feet,
They really are so sweet,
I take a bite most every night
And I simply must repeat
Your feet smell like a rose,
Please put them in my nose
My dolly, my dear, it’s perfectly clear,
That you’ve washed your feet!

6. The Garbage Truck Serenade

By Kathleen Rushing

Tuesdays the Garbage truck comes through town
Rolling down the street, making its garbage rounds,
Trash cans packed full, waiting at the curb
Little faces at the window, this is what is heard,

**The garbage truck, the garbage truck,
It’s coming down the street
The garbage truck, the garbage 
It smells like dirty feet!
Rotten, nasty, dirty, the stuff we like the 
When the garbage stops here it’s a stinky smelly fest

It stops at our house and down comes the arm
Grabbing our trash can, how the flies around it swarm
Up into the air, chug a lug goes the trash,
Back down comes our trash can with a bang a crash.

The garbage is gone, down the street it goes
To a place called the dumps, where you have to hold your nose
We’ll fill the can once more, the rest of this week,
And again by next Tuesday, our can it will wreak!

**The garbage truck, the garbage 
It’s coming down the steer
The garbage truck, the garbage 
It smells like dirty dirty feet! 
Rotten, nasty, dirty, the stuff we like the best
When the garbage truck  stops here it’s a stinky smelly 
When the garbage trucks stops here we are truly, truly blessed!

The Ants Go Marching     

The Ants go marching one by one hurrun, hurrun,

The ants go marching one by one, the little one stops to suck his thumb,
And they all go marching down, to the ground, to get out - of the rain,
Boom, boom, boom.

The ants go marching two by two, hurooh, hurooh
The ants go marching two by two, hurooh, hurooh
The ants go marching two by two, the little one stops to tie his shoe,
And they all go marching, down, to ground, to get out - of the rain,
Boom, boom, boom..

three by three....Little one stops to watch a bee,
four by four,   Little one stops to close the door
five by five,   Little one stops to jump and jive ,
six by six,     Little one stops to play some tricks
seven by seven, Little one stops at the 7-11.
eight by eight, Little one stops and now he’s late.
Make up your own rhymes!

14. Hammock in the Shade

     Kathleen Rushing

On a hammock in the shade Sat dear Grammy one day
Swinging with 2 little grand kids,
Along came a bug, Into Grammy’s hair it dug
And this is what dear Grammy did say,

“Well, excuse me you pair, but there’s something in my hair,
It’s given me quite a scare.
But from this hammock we’d fall out,
So I guess I just won’t care!”

On a hammock in the shade, In Grammy’s hair the bug did stay,
Building a home and family.
When those bug eggs did hatch, it was really quite a batch,
And this is what dear Grammy did say,

“Well, excuse me you pair, but there’s something in my hair,
It’s giving me quite a scare.
I would scream and shake and shout,
But from this hammock we’d fall out,
So I guess I just won’t care!”

15. Twinkle ABC

Next time won’t you sing with me

8. The Pirate Song   Traditional

When I was one I sucked my thumb, on the day I went to sea,
I jumped aboard a pirate ship, and the captain said to me,
Now you go this way, and that way,
Over the deep blue sea.  
This way, and that way, over the deep blue sea.

When I was two, I tied my shoe
When I was three, I climbed a tree
When I was four, I shut the door,
When I was five, sakes alive!
When I was six, I picked up sticks
When I was seven I went to heaven
When I was eight, I closed the gate
When I was nine, I got in line
When I was ten, I saw some men    

OR make up your own, better yet, have the kids make them up! 


9.  Frosty the Snowman - w. Rollins/Steve Nelson

Frosty the snowman, was a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose,
And two eyes made out of coal
Frosty the snowman was a fairy tale they say,
He was made of snow and the children know how he came to life one day
There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found
For when they placed it on his head, he began to dance around! 
Frosty the snowman, was alive as he could be, and the children say 
He could laugh and play, just the same as you and me

Thumpity, thump, thump,
Thumpity, thump, thump
Look at Frosty go,
Thumpity, thump, thump,
Thumpity, thump, thump, over the hills of snow! 

Frosty the snowman knew the sun was hot that day
So he said let's run and we'll have some fun
Now before I melt away! 
Down through the village, with a broomstick in his hand
Running here and there, all around the square, 
Saying "Catch me if you can!"
He led them down the streets of town right to a traffic cop
And he only paused a moment when he heard him holler, "STOP!"
Frosty the snowman, had to hurry on his way,
So he waved good-bye, saying, "Don't you cry, I'll be back again some day!"

Thumpity, thump, thump,
Thumpity, thump, thump
Look at Frosty go,
Thumpity, thump, thump,
Thumpity, thump, thump, over the hills of snow!

Groundhog gravy all over his chin.. groundhog, groundhog

Look at those fellas they're about to fall 2x
At till their pants won't button at all…. groundhog, groundhog, groundhog!!!

Little piece of cornbread a layin' on the shelf 2x
If you want more you can sing it yourself! Groundhog, groundhog

14. Potatoes are Under the Ground - MaryLee Sunseri

There's an Irish rainbow above the green mountains
And a little white house by the sea,
And shamrocks are growin' where the rivers are growing
And potatoes grow under the ground, the ground, and potatoes grow under the ground

There's an Irish rainbow above the green mountains, 
and a road leading off to the sea
There's a horse to ride, and a dog by my side
And potatoes grow under the ground, the ground, and potatoes grow under the ground

There's an Irish rainbow above the green mountainS
And a sweet Irish harp calling me
The bagpipes and fiddles play diddle aye diddle
And potatoes grow under the ground, the ground, and potatoes grow under the ground

There's an Irish rainbow above the green mountains
And a leprechaun as tall as my knee
Remember the ground where the pot of gold is found,
And potatoes grow under the ground, the ground, and potatoes grow under the ground

Too ra loo ra loo ra, too ra loo ra la,
Too ra loo ra loo ra, hush now don't you cry
Too ra loo ra loo ra, too ra loo ra ly
Too ra loo ra loo ra, that's an Irish lullaby

15.  Ravioli

Raviolis, I like Raviolis!  Have I got it on my head?
Yes, you've got it on your head!
ON MY HEAD??  
ON YOUR HEAD!!
Raviiolis, I like Raviolis, it's the best for me!  



Andy has an ape on his head, Andy has an ape on his head and he likes to feed it apples
Bailey has a baboon on his head, and he likes to feed it bananas… 

and so on with each letter of the alphabet, using someone's name, same first letter.

1. Big Rock Candy Mountain  - Harry McClintock (additional lyrics ?) 

Tell you about a land I know, not so far from here.. 
And every time you blink your eyes, the strangest things appear….. 

Oh, the buzzin' of the bees in the bubble gum trees,
The soda water fountain
The lemonade streams and the bluebirds sing, 
On the Big Rock Candy Mountain

Oh, the Big Rock Candy Mountain
Is the perfect place for kids,
Your allowance grows on bushes,
And the cookie jars don't have lids.
You can have your choice of any pet
in the Big Rock Candy Zoo,
There's a root beer lake you can dive into,
You can paddle all around it in a big canoe,
On the Big Rock Candy Mountain

Oh, the buzzin' of the bees in the bubble gum trees, 
The soda water fountain,
The lemonade springs where the bluebirds sing,
On the Big Rock Candy Moutain

On the Big Rock Candy Mountain, 
You never change your socks, 
And little streams of apple juice come 
Come a bubblin' down the rocks
There's no such thing as home,
It's your birthday all the time
You can stay up late and your folks don't care,
You can come to school in your underwear! 

Oh, the buzzin' of the bees 

2. I See the Moon - Traditional lyrics

I see the moon and the moon sees me,
Down through the leaves of the old oak tree,
God bless the moon and God bless me,
God bless the ones I love. 

Over the mountains and over the see,
Back where my heart is longing to be,
I know the light that shines on me, 
Shines on the ones I love.

I see the stars and the stars see me, 
Down through the leaves of the old oak tree
God bless the stars and God bless me, 
God bless my Grammy too

Over the mountains and over the see,
Back where my heart is longing to be,
I know the stars that shine on me, 
Shine on my Grandpa too.

I hear the lark and it calls to me,
Singing a song with a memory,
Please take the song it sings to me,
Back to the ones I love.

Over the mountains and over the sea,
Back where my heart is longing to be,
Please take the song it sings to me,
Back to the ones I love.

I hear the rain and the rain hears me,
Down through the leaves of the old oak tree,
God Bless the rain and God bless me, 
God bless my Mommy

Over the mountains and over the sea,
Back where my heart is longing to be,
I know the rain that drips on me,
Drips on my Daddy too.  

3. I Wanna Be a Dog  - Barry Louis Polizar

Oh, I wanna be a dog, I wanna wag my tail,
Chase cars and knock over garbage cans,
Bite the lady who brings you the mail.

Oh I wanna be a dog, I wanna dig big holes,
I wanna sniff french poodles and bassett hounds,
And look for telephone polls,

Oh, I wanna have dog breath, I wanna learn how to growl,
Scratch fleas and ticks, run after sticks,
The moon will make me howl! 

Oh, I wanna be a dog, I wanna lie around,
Being human these days is getting too crazy,
I just wanna be a hound!  

4. Oh Susannah! Stephen Foster

Oh I come from Alabama with the banjo on my knee,
I'm going to Louisiana my true love for to see
It rained all night the day I left, the weather it was dry,
The sun so hot I froze to death, Susannah don't you cry! 

Oh Susannah, don't you cry for me,
Cause I come from Alabama with the banjo on my knee

I had a dream the other night when everything was still,
I dreamed I saw Susannah, she was comin' down the hill,
The buckwheat cakes were in her mouth, a tear was in her eye,
Says I, "I'm coming from the south, Susannah don't you cry!" 

Oh Susannah…

Soon I'll be in New Orleans and then I'll look around,
And when I find Susannah, I'll fall upon the ground, 
And if I do not find her, then I will surely cry,
And when I'm sad and lonely, Susannah don't you cry. 

5. The Cat Came Back!  Traditional 

Old man Johnson had troubles of his own,
He had a yellow cat that wouldn't leave his home.
He tried and tried to give that cat away, 
He gave it to a man going far, far away…. but,

Chorus:    But The cat came back, the very next day, the Cat came back, they thought he was a goner, but the cat came back, he just wouldn't stay away, away, away, away…..

He gave it to a man going up in a balloon,
Told him for to take it to the man in the moon,
The balloon came down about a hundred miles away,
Where the man is now I cannot say… but…. chorus

Well, he put it in a cotton sack and gave it to a girl,
She was traveling on a bicycle all around the world,
Well, over ther in China a terrible wreck was found,
She's singing now in heaven with the angels all around… But…. chorus

He finally found a way for the cat to really fix,
He put in a orange craate on Highway 66
Come a 10 ton truck with a 20 ton load,
Scattered pieces of that orange crate all down the road… but… chorus

He put it on a boat bound for Seattle town,
He thought with all that rain the cat would surely drown,
The rain came down for the 42nd day,
The whole wet city just floated all away… but… chorus

Took him to Cape Canaveral and he put him into place, 
He put him in a rocketship bound for outer space,
Just when he thought he was beyond human reach,
Then he got a call from Miami Beach!  But….. chorus

He took him to San Francisco one fine summer day
Put him on a cable car headed for the bay,
At the bottom of the hill, the car jumped the rail, 
Went right into the bay like a great big whatle!  But….. chorus

6. So Long, My Friend   Bill Harley version (My Mom)

I'm getting up in the morning, I'm headed for a new town today,
I'm going to Africa, 'cause that's where the elephants play!

So long, my friends, I'm sorry but I cannot stay,
I've got a heavy load and it's a long road, and you've got to be on your way! 

6. I'm getting up in the morning, headin' for a new town today,
I'm going to Africa, 'cause that's where the elephants play,
And it's so long, my friends, I'm sorry that I cannot stay,
I've got a heavy load, and it's a long road, and I've got to be on my way
