“Drive the Fire Truck” by Rob Newhouse, Songs for Wiggleworms

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song: What Will You Be When You Grow Up?
What will you be when you grow up?
You grow up, You grow up?
What will you be when you grow up?
When you get older?
Jack wants to be a firefighter, firefighter, firefighter,
Jack wants to be a firefighter when he gets older.

Song: Fire Truck Wheels
Tune: Wheels on the Bus

The fire truck wheels go round and round
Siren goes
Ladder goes up and down
Seat belts go snap, snap, snap

Song: Old MacDonald
Old MacDonald had a farm, eieio
And on his farm he had a chicken, eieio
With a cluck, cluck here and a cluck, cluck there
Here a cluck, there a cluck, everywhere a cluck, cluck
Old MacDonald had a farm, eieio

Movement Rhyme: Fireman, Fireman
(to the tune of Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear)
Fireman Fireman, turn around
Fireman, fireman, touch the ground
Fireman, fireman, drive the truck
Fireman, fireman, don’t get stuck!
Fireman, fireman, hurry to the fire
Fireman, fireman, spray the water higher.
Fireman, fireman, give a shout,
Fireman, fireman, you put the fire out! Hooray!

Song: I am a Policeman
Sung to the tune of “I’m a Little Teapot.”
I am a policeman with my star.
I help people near and far.
If you have a problem call on me.
And I will be there 1, 2, 3!

Song: If You’re a Community Helper
Adapted by Julie Dietzel-Glair
Tune: If You’re Happy and You Know It

If you’re a firefighter and you know it spray the fire . . .Then your uniform will surely show it
Police officer, show your badge
Soldier, give a salute
