(Sometimes we sing them a little bit differently than the videos :)

There are bubbles in the air, in the air
There are bubbles in the air in the air,
There are bubbles in the air,
There are bubbles everywhere,
There are bubbles in the air, in the air.
                There are bubbles in the way up high…
                There are bubbles way down low…
 
Come along and sit with me,
Sit with me, Sit with me
Come along and sit with me,
On a (cloudy Thursday)
Clap with me
Sing with me
 
Wake up feet, wake up feet
 Wake up feet and wiggle, wiggle wiggle,
Wake up feet, wake up feet,
Wake up and wiggle in the morning
                … hands, ears, nose
 
I’m in the mood for singing
Hey how ‘bout you
I’m in the mood for singing
Hey how ‘bout you
I’m in the mood for singing
Singing along with you
Hey hey, what d’ya say
I’m in the mood for that today
Hey hey, what d’ya say
I’m in the mood for that
                …clapping, bouncing
 
Monkey Monkey (chant)
Monkey Monkey in the tree
Can you (wave your hand) like me?
Monkey see and Monkey do,
Monkey Monkey, me and you!
…nod your head, blink your eyes, etc.
 
Charlie Chaplin Went to France
To teach the ladies how to dance
First he did the rhumba,
Then he did the kicks,
Then he did the samba
Then the splits!
 
The Grand ol’ Duke of York
He had ten thousand men
He marched them up to the top of the hill
And he 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 halfway up
They were neither up nor down
 
Bumping up and down on my little red wagon
...won’t you be my darling
Wheel fell off and the axle’s broken
…won’t you be my darling
 
Oh the city is great and the city is grand
There’s a whole lot of people on a little piece of land
And we live way up on the 57th floor
And this is what we do when we go out the door
We take the elevator up, we take the elevator down
…and we turn around
 
Alice the camel had five humps
Alice the camel had five humps
Alice the camel had five humps
So go alice go
…four, three, two, one
 
Zoom Zoom Zoom
We’re going to the moon
Zoom, zoom, zoom,
We’re going to the moon.
If you want to take a trip,
Climb aboard my rocket ship,
Zoom zoom zoom,
We’re going to the moon.
In 5-4-3-2-1- BLASTOFF!
 
Mmm-ahh went the Little green frog one day
Mmm ahh went the little green frog.
Mmm ahh went the little green frog one day.
And they all went mmm, mmm, ahh.
But...
We know frogs go (clap) La-di-da-di-da.
(clap) La-di-da-di-da.. (clap) La-di-da-di-da.
We know frogs go (clap)  La-di-da-di-da.
They don't go mmm, mmm, ahh.
 
My Paddle’s Keen and Bright
Flashing with silver,
Follow the wild goose flight,
Dip, dip and swing,
Dip, dip and swing
                Dip, dip and swing her back,
                Flashing with silver,
                Follow the wild goose track,
                Dip, dip and swing,
                Dip, dip and Swing
 
Sing when the spirit says sing
You gotta sing when the spirit says sing
You gotta sing when the spirit says sing
When the spirit says sing
You gotta sing right along
You gotta sing when the spirit says sing
 
Come-a look-a-see
Come-a look-a see, here’s my mama,
Come-a look-a see, here’s my papa,
Come-a look-a see, my brother tall,
Sister, baby (kiss!)
I love them all!
                Come-a look-a see, here’s my grandma,
                Come-a look-a see, here’s my grandpa,
                Come-a look-a see, my uncle tall,
                Auntie, cousin (kiss!)
                I love them all!
 
Tiny Tim
There was a tiny turtle
Whose name was Tiny Tim,
I put him in the bathtub,
to see if he could swim
He drank up all the water
He ate up all the soap
And now he’s sick in bed
With bubbles in his throat
 
A smooth road to London town
A smooth road to London town
The road goes up and the road goes down
A smooth road to London town
                …but bye and bye we come to a dell
                And there the road is not so swell
                A bumpy road, a bumpy road
                A bumpy road to London town
A smooth road to London town
A smooth road to London town
The road goes up and the road goes down
A smooth road to London town
                …but bye and bye we come to a wood
                And there the road is not so good
                A rough road, a rough road
                A rough road to London town
 
Baby goes bumpy boo, baby goes bumpy bye
Baby goes bumpy bee, all on top of my knee
I bounce you to the left, I bounce you to the right
I bounce you up and down, I bounce you right out of sight…woooh!
                Baby goes bumpy boo, baby goes bumpy bye
                Baby goes bumpy bee, all on top of my knee.
                I bounce you very fast, I bounce you very slow
                I bounce you up and down, and back we both    do go…..woooh.
Baby goes bumpy boo, baby goes bumpy bye
Baby goes bumpy bee, all on top of my knee.    
                                                               
Sittin in my highchair, my chair, highchair
Sittin in my highchair bangin my spoon
Sitting in my highchair, my chair, highchair
Sittin in my highchair bangin my spoon
Bring on the crackers, bring on the cheese
Won’t somebody feed this baby please
Bring on the crackers, bring on the cheese
Won’t somebody feed this baby please
