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
And this little piggie cried,
“Wee! Wee! Wee!” all the way home

Old Gray Mare
Tune: Row, Row, Row Your Boat
(Baby faces parent on lap or knees)

Clip, clop, clippety clop
Clippety, clippety, clop
The old gray mare goes
Up and down
Until it’s time to stop

Wheels on the Bus
The wheels on the bus go round and round
Round and round, round and round
The wheels on the bus go round and round
All through the town

The wipers on the bus go swish, swish swish
The people on the bus go up and down
The parents on the bus go shh, shh, shh

Acka-backa Soda Cracker
Acka-backa soda cracker
Acka-backa boo
Acka-backa soda cracker
I love you.
Acka-backa soda cracker
Acka-backa boo
Acka-backa soda cracker
Up goes you! (lift up)
BIG HUG!

Shake Your Shaker
Shake your shaker in the air, shake it here, shake it there.
Shake your shaker in the air, shake your shaker.
Shake it high and shake it low, shake it yes, shake it no.
Shake it high and shake it low, shake your shaker.
Shake it up and shake it down, rub your shaker on the ground.
Shake it up and shake it down, shake your shaker.
Shake it near and shake it far, drive your shaker like a car.
Shake it near and shake it far, shake your shaker.
Shake it fast and shake it slow, shake it STOP, shake it GO.
Shake it fast and shake it slow, shake your shaker.
