Tommy Thumbs
Tommy Thumbs up and Tommy Thumbs down
Tommy Thumbs dancing all around town
Dance them on your shoulders
Dance them on your head
Dance them on your knees
And tuck them into bed

Pudding on the Plate
Tune: Farmer in the Dell
Pudding on the plate,
Pudding on the plate,
Wibble wobble,
Wibble wobble,
Pudding on the plate!
Candies in the jar,
Candies in the jar,
Shake them up,
Shake them up,
Candies in the jar!
Candles on the cake,
Candles on the cake,
Blow them out,
Blow them out,
Candles on the cake!

Charlie Chaplin
(good for diaper changing)
Charlie Chaplin went to France
To teach the ladies how to dance.
First he did the rumba, the rumba, the rumba (move baby’s legs in a circle)
Then he did the kicks, the kicks, the kicks (kick baby’s legs back and forth)
Then he did the samba, the samba, the samba, (move baby’s legs in a circle, the opposite direction)
Then he did the splits, the splits, the splits. (move baby’s legs apart)

A Little Flea
A little flea went walking (“walk” fingers around child’s tummy)
To see what he could see
But all that he could see
Was Baby’s little tummy! (tickle tummy)

This is the Way We Clean the House
(Tune: Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush)
This is the way we dust the ceiling
Dust the ceiling, dust the ceiling
This is the way we dust the ceiling
So early in the morning
This is the way we sweep the floor . . .
This is the way we vacuum the floor . .
This is the way we water the plants . . .
