There was a great big moose
Who liked to drink a lot of juice
There was a great big moose
Who liked to drink a lot of juice

CHORUS:
Singing whoa oh-oh
Wee-oh wee-oh wee-oh wee-oh
Whoa oh-oh
Wee-oh wee-oh wee-oh wee-oh

The moose’s name was Fred
He liked to drink his juice in bed
The moose’s name was Fred
He liked to drink his juice in bed

CHORUS

He drank his juice with care
But he spilled it in his hair
He drank his juice with care
But he spilled it in his hair

CHORUS

Now there’s a sticky moose
Full of juice
On the loose

Book

Music
Laurie Berkner – Victor Vito

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays
Terrific Toes
I have such terrific toes,
I take them with me wherever I goes.
I have such fantastic feet.
No matter what, they still smell sweet.
Toes and feet and feet and toes.
There’s nothing else as fine as those.

This little piggy
This little piggy went to market.
This little piggy stayed home.
This little piggy had blueberries.
This little piggy had none.
And this little piggy cried, “Wee, wee, wee!”
All the way home.

Are You Sleeping?
Are you sleeping? Are you sleeping?
Brother John, Brother John?
Morning bells are ringing,
Morning bells are ringing.
Ding! Dong! Ding!
Ding! Dong! Ding!

French – Frere Jacques?
Frere Jacques, Frere Jacques,
Dormez-vous? Dormez-vous?
Sonnez les matines, sonnez les matines.
Din, din, don! Din, din, don!

Spanish – Fray Felipe?
Fray Felipe, Fray Felipe?
Duermes tu? Duermes tu?
Suenan las campanas,
Suenan las companas.
Din, dan, don! Din, dan, don.

My Grandma is Coming to Visit (Tune of “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean”)
My grandma is coming to visit,
My grandma is coming to play,
My grandma is coming to visit,
She’s coming to visit today!

Chorus:
Waiting, waiting,
Oh waiting for Grandma today, today.
Waiting, waiting,
Oh waiting for Grandma today, today.

A Smooth Road
A smooth road, a smooth road,
(with baby on your knees, stroke baby’s legs on each ‘a smooth road’)
a smooth road, a smooth road

A bumpy road, a bumpy road,
(bounce baby gently on the ‘bumpy’ road)
a bumpy road, a bumpy road

A rough road, a rough road,
(The road is a little more bumpy)
a rough road, a rough road
A hole!
(Baby ‘falls’ in the space between your legs)

The Bugs on the Bus
The bugs on the bus go buzz, buzz, buzz
buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz
The bugs on the bus go buzz, buzz, buzz
All through the town.

The kids on the bus go itch, itch, itch…

The parents on the bus go shoo, fly shoo…

The More We Get Together
The more we get together, together, together.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends.
And my friends are your friends.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.

The more we read together, together, together.
The more we read together, the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends.
And my friends are your friends.
The more we read together, the happier we’ll be.
