I Went to Visit the Farm
I went to visit the farm one day,
I saw a cat along the way.
And what do you think I heard it say?
Meow, meow, meow
I went to visit the farm one day,
I saw a dog along the way.
And what do you think I heard it say?
Woof, woof, woof

Shoe the Old Horse
Shoe the old horse (tap one foot)
Shoe the old mare (tap the other foot)
But let the little pony
Run bare, bare, bare (tap feet together)

A Little Dog Went Walking
A little dog went walking (“walk” fingers around child’s tummy)
To see what he could see
But all that he could see
Was Baby’s little tummy! (tickle tummy)

Old MacDonald Had a Band (with instruments)
Can change instruments each verse
Old Macdonald had a band, E I E I O
And in this band he had some shakers, E I E I O
With a shake, shake here and a shake, shake there
Here a shake, there a shake, everywhere a shake, shake
Old MacDonald had a band, E I E I O
