Bouncing Song

Bounce and bounce and bounce and stop

Rock and rock and rock and stop . . .

Cheek, chin, cheek, chin, cheek, chin, toes!
Cheek, chin, cheek, chin, up baby goes!

Bicycle
(Baby faces parent)
Here comes our choo-choo train,
Chuggin’ down the track
Now it’s going forward
Now it’s going back
Now our bell is ringing
Now our whistle blows
What a lot of noise it makes
Everywhere it goes!

Criss Cross Applesauce
Criss, cross, applesauce (draw x on child’s back)
Spiders running up your back (walk fingers up back)
Cool breeze (blow gently)
Tight squeeze (hug)
Now you’ve got the shivers! (tickle)

Did You Ever See a Fishy?
Did you ever see a fishy, a fishy, a fishy?
Did you ever see a fishy swim this way and that?
Swim this way and that way,
And this way and that way.
Did you ever see a fishy swim this way and that?

Yes, I’ve seen a fishy, a fishy, a fishy.
Yes, I’ve seen a fishy swim this way and that.
Swim this way and that way,
And this way and that way.
Yes, I’ve seen a fishy swim this way and that

Autumn Leaves
Autumn leaves are falling down,
Falling down, falling down.
Autumn leaves are falling down,
All over town.

The cold wind blows them all around,
All around, all around.

All over town.

Take a rake and pile them up,
Pile them up, pile them up.
Take a rake and pile them up,
All over town.
