(Mary had a little lamb)
Everybody smile and wave,
Smile and wave,
Smile and wave.
Everybody smile and wave,
I’m so glad you’re here.

Rhyme: Dump Truck
Dump truck, dump truck
Bumpin’ down the road
Spillin’ gravel as you travel
With your heavy load
Bumpety bumpety bump
Dump truck dump truck – Dump! (tip over)

Rhyme: I’m Driving in My Car
I’m driving in my car, I’m driving in my car,
Beep! beep! toot! toot! I’m driving in my car.

I’m driving very fast, I’m driving very fast,
Beep! beep! toot! toot! I’m driving very fast.

I’m driving very slow, I’m driving very slow,
Beep! beep! toot! toot! I’m driving very slow.

The light is turning red. I must stop my car,
Beep! beep! toot! toot! I must stop my car.

The light is turning green. I can go again,
Beep! beep! toot! toot! I can go again
