1. Good Morning

Good morning, good morning
Welcome to another day
Good morning, good morning
Let’s go out and play
I love you, I missed you

It’s good to see your face
Good morning, good morning
Welcome to another day

Gotta dump my blocks, first thing in the morning
Gonna smile a lot, and hug my stuffed pony
Look at books and roll a ball
It’s the morning, after all
It’s a new day, after all

Good morning, good morning…

Are you ready? to go out and play?
Are you ready? It’s a brand new day!
We’ve got a couple of things that
We’ve gotta do today
Are you ready? to go out and play?

Good morning, good morning…

2. Visit the Library

I like to go…visit the library

We can read a book;
get a movie and take a look
Every time that I go—I have fun

Said, I like to go…visit the library

I like to see all my friends
I hope that storytime never ends
Every time that I go, I have fun

I like to go…visit the library

3. Pop Goes the Weasel

All around the cobbler's bench,
the monkey chased the weasel.
The monkey thought 'twas all in fun.
Pop! goes the weasel.

A penny for a spool of thread
A penny for a needle—
That's the way the money goes,
Pop! goes the weasel.


4. Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill went up the hill,
to fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after


5. Little Red Wagon

Bumpin' up and down in my little red wagon (3x)
Won’t you be my darling?

Hold on tight, goin' around a corner (3x)
Won’t you be my darling?

Climbin' up the hill in my little red wagon (3x)
Won’t you be my darling?

Zoomin' down the hill in my little red wagon (3x)
Won’t you be my darling?

Headin' on home in my little red wagon (3x)
Won’t you be my darling?

Bumpin' up and down in my little red wagon (3x)
Won’t you be my darling?


6. I Wanna Play

I wanna play,
Whether it’s night or day
It’s all I wanna do
Is play with you.
(repeat)

Get my blocks out and
Y’all better look out and
Anything can happen when I play.

I get my train out and
Choo-choo-choo aloud and
Pull it in the station for the day.

I wanna play,
Whether it’s night or day
It’s all I wanna do
Is play with you.

I get my books out and
Momma reads aloud and
I like sitting on her lap.

I get my music out and
Rock, rock, rock it out
All I wanna do is clap!

I wanna play,
Whether it’s night or day
It’s all I wanna do
Is play with you.

7. The Grand Old Duke of York

Oh, the grand old Duke of York
He had ten thousand men
He marched them up to the top of the hill,
And marched them down again.

And when they were up, they were up,
And when they were down, they were down,
And when they were only half-way up,
They were neither up nor down.

Oh, he marched them to the left
He marched them to the right
He turned them over upside-down
Oh, what a funny sight!

And, he marched them to the left
He marched them to the right
He marched them 'round and 'round again
And marched them out of sight.


8. Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the kinds horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again


9. I'm a Little Teapot

I'm a little teapot, short and stout
Here is my handle and here is my spout
When I get all steamed up, then I shout
Tip me over and pour me out!

I'm a little teapot, brewing up some tea
One cup for you and another cup for me
We will be such good friends, wait and see
Sit right down and drink your tea!

I'm a little teapot, short and stout
Here is my handle and here is my spout
When I spy a teacup, then I shout
Tip me over and pour me out!
Tip me over and pour me out!


10. Swimmin' in My Tub

Well, I like to go swimmin’, swimmin’ in my tub
Said I like to go
Swimmin’, swimmin’ in my tub
I play with my toys,
I get filled up with joy
I hear splishin’ and splashin’
It’s always full of action
And I like to go
Swimmin’, swimmin’ in my tub

I like to play with my little yellow duckie too
If ya don’t like that
I’ve got another duckie that’s blue
Green turtle goldfish
Both squirt water at you
Ready, set, aim, fire!

Said, I like to go swimmin’, swimmin’ in my tub…

I’ve got a little boat
The captain’s name is “Dan”
And I’m his first mate
I help him whenever I can
I sometimes sing
Sing as loud as I can

11. This Little Piggie

This little piggie went to market
This little piggie stayed home
This little piggie had roast beef
This little piggie had none
This little piggie cried "Wee, wee, wee!" all the way home.


12. Peanut Butter and Jelly

Peanut, peanut butter and jelly

First you take the peanuts and you crunch 'em, crunch 'em
Peanut, peanut butter and jelly

Then you take the grapes and you squish 'em, squish 'em
Peanut, peanut butter and jelly

Then you take the bread and you spread it, spread it
Peanut, peanut butter and jelly

Then you take the sandwich and you eat it, eat it
Mmmm…so good!


13. Everybody Knows I Love My Toes

Everybody knows I love my toes
I love my eyes, my ears, my mouth and my nose
But everybody knows I love my toes.

Everybody knows I love my toes
I love my knees, my chin, my belly and my nose
But everybody knows I love my toes.

Everybody knows I love my toes
I love my fingers, my shoulders, my ankles and my nose
But everybody knows I love my toes.

Everybody knows I love my toes
I love my arms, my legs, my head and my nose
But everybody knows I love my toes.

14. I See the Moon

I see the moon and the moon sees me
The moon sees somebody I'd like to see
Please let the light that shines on me
Shine on the one I love

I see the moon and the moon sees me
Shining down through the old oak tree
Please let the light that shines on me
Shine on the one I love

Over the mountain, over the sea
That's where my heart is longing to be
Please let the light that shines on me
Shine on the one I love

I hear the lark and the lark hears me
Singing a song with a melody
Please let the lark that sings for me
Sing for the one I love

15. Naptime

I think it’s time for a nap
I could really use a snooze

Everything can wait for awhile
I feel like I just ran a mile
I don’t have the energy to smile
Put me in my crib for awhile

I think it’s time for a nap
I could really use a snooze

Just give me my blanket to hold
Wrap it all around if I get cold
I’ll be back up in awhile
First thing I’ll do is give you a smile

I think it’s time for a nap
I could really use a snooze

16. Baa, Baa Black Sheep

Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.
One for your sweater, one for your rug
One for your blanket, to keep you warm and snug.

Cluck, cluck, red hen, have you any eggs?
Yes sir, yes sir, as many as your legs.
One for your breakfast, one for your lunch
Come back tomorrow, I'll have another bunch.

Moo, moo, brown cow, have you milk for me?
Yes sir, yes sir, tasty as can be.
Churn it into butter, make it into cheese
Freeze it into ice cream, or drink it if you please

Buzz, buzz, busy bee, is your honey sweet?
Yes sir, yes sir, sweet enough to eat.
Honey on your muffin, honey on your cake
Honey by the spoonful, as much as I can make

Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.


17. I Love Animals

I like big dogs, I like little dogs.
I like spotted dogs, I like stray dogs.
I like dogs.

I like little cats, I like big cats.
I like playful cats, I like lap cats.
I like cats.

I love animals
I love animals
I love animals

I like animals on the farm, I like big cows
I like big horses, I like little pigs.
I like animals on the farm.

I love animals…

18. Little Miss Muffet

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet
Eating her curds and whey
Along came a spider and sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away!

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet
Eating macaroni and cheese
Along came a spider and sat down beside her
And said, "May I have some please?"

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet
Eating a PB & J
Along came a spider and sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away! Arrgh!

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet
Eating her curds and whey
Along came a spider and sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away! Eek!


19. The Seasons

I love Fall
When the leaves fall from the trees

I like Winter
And the snowfall in the sky

I love Spring
With the flowers waking up

I love Summer
When the sun shines on my face
