Music

Korean Folk Songs by Robert Choi (This book comes with the CD we used in Storytime. You can view the songs we listened to below.)

Songs, Rhymes & Fingerplays

Song: Hello in Different Languages
Hello, hello friend,
Hello friend, hello!

Chinese:
Ni hao, ni hao pengyou,
ni hao pengyou, ni hao!

Movement Rhyme: Translated Chinese Tongue Twister
青青山上一根藤,青藤底下挂铜铃,风吹藤动铜铃动,风停藤停铜铃停。

Qīng qīng shān shàng yī gēn téng,qīng téng dĭ xià guà tóng líng,Fēng chuī téng dòng tóng líng dòng,fēng tíng téng tíng tóng líng tíng.

Translated:
On a green mountain grows a vine.
Under the vine there hangs a copper bell.
When the wind blows,
the vine moves, and so does the bell.
When the wind stops,
the vine stops, and the bell stops too.

Song: Mountain Rabbit (from Korean Folk Songs book/CD)
Jack rabbit, jack rabbit,
where are you going?
Over the mountain peaks,
I’ll climb them on my own.
Bouncing as you’re running,
where are you going?
Ripe and shiny chestnuts,
I’ll find and bring them home.

Song: Tadpole Song (from Korean Folk Songs book/CD)
There’s a tadpole swimming in a stream, wriggling, wriggling, wriggling around.
Back legs out, front legs out, hopping, hopping, now he’s a frog.
Wriggle, wriggle, wriggle, wriggle, wriggle, wriggle, wriggling around.
Back legs out, front legs out, hopping, hopping, now he’s a frog.

Song: Butterfly (from Korean Folk Songs book/CD)
Put your scarves in the air, in the air
Butterfly, butterfly, come on over, fly to me.
Brightly colored butterflies, dancing, dancing, in the breeze.
Spring winds make the petals laugh, laughing, laughing happily.
Sparrows chirp, tweet, tweet, tweet, singing dancing in the trees.

Song: It’s Time to Say Goodbye
It’s time to say goodbye to our friends (clap, clap)
It’s time to say goodbye to our friends (clap, clap)
Storytime is done today,
So come again another day
It’s time to say goodbye to our friends (clap clap)
