 Songs & Rhymes

Rhyme: Whisky Frisky Hippity Hop

Whisky, frisky, hippity hop,
Up he goes to the tree top.
(hand makes a spiral motion up)
Whirly, swirly, round and round,
Down he scampers to the ground.
(hand makes a spiral motion down)
Furly, curly, what a tail,
Tall as a feather, broad as a sail.
(wave hand for tail)
Where’s his supper–in the shell.
(hold hand closed like a nut)
Snappity, crackity, out it fell.
(thumb and finger open and shut like cracking a nut)

Song: The Leaves on the Ground
(To the tune of: “The Wheels on the Bus”)

The leaves on the trees turn orange and red,
Orange and red,
Orange and red
The leaves on the trees turn orange and red
All around the town.

The leaves on the ground go swish, swish, swish,
Swish, swish, swish,
Swish, swish, swish.
The leaves on the ground go swish, swish, swish
All around the ground.

The leaves on the trees tumble down,
Tumble down, Tumble down.
The leaves on the trees tumble down
Down to the ground.

We’ll rake the leaves in a pile and jump right in!
Jump right in,
Jump right in!
We’ll rake the leaves in a pile
All around the town.
