A Hippopotamus Got on the City Bus
A hip, a hip, a hippopotamus
Got on, got on, got on a city bus
And all, and all, and all the people said
You’re squishing us
A cow, a cow, a cow got on the city bus
And all, and all, and all the people said
Moooooove over
A sheep, a sheep, a sheep got on the bus
And all, and all, and all the people said
Baaaaaack up

Cranes reach out
And all around

Where is Baby?

Where is baby? Where is baby? (put scarf in front of baby’s face)
There he is! There he is! (pull scarf away)

Peek-a-boo! Peek-a-boo! (place scarf in front of face and pull it away)
