The more we get together, together, together.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.
For your friends are my friends.
And my friends are your friends.
The more we get together, the happier we’ll be.

Song: The Wheels on the Truck

The wheels on the truck go round and round
Round and round
Round and round
The wheels on the truck go round and round
All though the town.

The scoop on the truck goes CHOMP, CHOMP, CHOMP,
CHOMP, CHOMP, CHOMP,
CHOMP, CHOMP, CHOMP
The scoop on the truck goes CHOMP, CHOMP, CHOMP
All through the town

The bell on the truck goes ding, ding, ding,
Ding, ding , ding
Ding, ding, ding
The bell on the truck goes ding, ding,
All through the town.

The siren on the truck goes WHOOP, WHOOP, WHOOP
WHOOP, WHOOP. WHOOP,
WHOOP, WHOOP, WHOOP
The siren on the truck goes WHOOP, WHOOP, WHOOP,
All through the town

The ball on the truck goes BAM,BAM, BAM,
BAM, BAM, BAM,
BAM, BAM, BAM,
The ball on the truck goes BAM, BAM, BAM,
All through the town.

The drum on the truck goes, WHOOSH, WHOOSH, WHOOSH
WHOOSH, WHOOSH, WHOOSH
WHOOSH, WHOOSH, WHOOSH
The drum on the truck goes WHOOSH, WHOOSH, WHOOSH
All through the town.

Movement Song: 

Rumble, Rumble Monster Max
Can you jump those junkyard stacks?
Up above the trash so high,
Like a rocket in the sky.
Rumble, rumble, Monster Max.
Yep, he jumped those junkyard stacks.

Song:

Three Loud Trucks.
Three Loud Trucks.
See how they zoom
See how they zoom.
They all jumped over
The muck and goo.
They skidded and screeched
And their mufflers blew.
Did you ever see such a crazy crew?
As three loud trucks,
Three Loud Trucks. 

Movement Rhyme: Wave Goodbye
Wave high, wave low,
I think it’s time, we gotta go.
Wave your elbows, wave your toes,
Wave your tongue and wave your nose.
Wave your knees, wave your lips,
Blow a kiss with fingertips.
Wave your chin, wave your eye,
Wave your hand and say “Goodbye!”
