We sang, "Follow follow me to the ring of the fairies"

I am a choo choo train puffing (or chugging) down the track
Now I'm going forward and now I am going back
See the bell a ringing Hear the whistle blow
What a lot of noise it makes every where it goes!

Open shut them open shut them give a little clap.
Open shut them open shut them lay them in your lap.
Creep them creep them slowly creep them right up to your chin
Open up your little mouth but do not let them in
Higher Higher Higher higher till they reach the top
Quickly pick them up again and turn them round and round
Faster faster faster faster faster faster faster
Slower slower slower slower slower slower slower
Open shut them open shut them give a little clap
Open shut them open shut them lay them in your lap!

Build a house build a house build it to the sky
See the chimney see the roof
See the floor see the pretty yellow door
See the mother knead the bread see the baby go to bed
See the happy children play
On this bright and sunny day!

This little pig found a hole in the fence
This little pig jumped through
This little pig headed straight for the garden
And this little pig did too
But this little pig said wee wee wee look what I see
This little pig said ooo juicy berries
This little pig said oh nice fresh greed lettuce
This little pig said here comes the farmer
This little pig said you had better run or he will get us
This little pig said wee wee wee he cant catch me!

Two little birds sat in a tree the first named _________
And the other named __________
Fly away ________ fly away ________
Come back ________ come back _________

In a cottage in the woods
Little old man by the window stood
Saw a rabbit hopping by knocking at the door
Help me help me sir he said or the hunter is
gonna hurt me bad
Rabbit come and live with me
Happy we will always be.

Oh where oh where has my little dog gone
Oh where oh where could he be
With his hears so short
And his tail so long
Oh where oh where could he be.

Old mother Hubbard went to the cupboard
To get her poor dog a bone
But when she got there the cupboard was bard
So the poor dog had none.

Little miss muffet sat on her tuffet
Eating her curds and whey
Along came a spider and sat down beside her
And frightened miss muffet away
(we repeat the last line a few times with a few rhythms)

Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill came tumbling after
Up jack got and home did trot as fast as he could caper
He went to bed and wrapped his head in vinegar and brown paper
(we add repeats on "vinegar and vinegar and vinegar and brown paper" w/ a few rhythms)

Little feet on my legs
Tummy round
Pink and sound
Arms so long and hands so small
Belong to little baby (child's name) all

Thumpkin Bumpkin
Merry go bet
Fell in the duck pond and got all wet
A nickel for a nappy
And a penny for a pen
To dress my little cocky Oley Bumpkin in!

Pat a cake
Pat a cake
Bakers man
Bake me a cake as fast as you can
First you roll it
Then you pat it
Then you mark it with a B
And you put it in the oven for baby and me.
(Again, b/c the kids might get wiggly, we add "for baby and me, for baby and me, put it in the oven for baby and me" with rhythms)

Cluck cluck red hen have you any eggs
Oh yes oh yes as many as your legs
One for your breakfast one for your lunch
If you come back tomorrow then I'll have a bunch

Then we sang "Where are all the froggies?" (I can copy the music for anyone interested)

Where are the froggies when the north winds blow?
We cannot see them in the ice and snow.
Deep, deep down in the mud they lie, Froggies sleeping with tight-closed eyes.
When the warm spring sun comes out, Froggies wake and jump about.
Oh, how happy they will be - A spring-time world they will see!

same words, only Turtle and crawl about.

same words, only Bears  
. . . snow.
Snug and warm in a cave they lie, Baby bears sleeping . . .
. . . baby bears wake and run about . . .

same words, Squirrels . . .
snow . . .
Cracking nuts in a hollow tree,
Squirrels are cozy as cozy can be.
. . . sun comes out, Squirrels wake and jump about . . .

Caterpillars . . .
. . . snow.
Snug and warm in a chrysalis they lie,
Caterpillars changing to a butterfly.
When the warm spring sun comes out,
Butterflies wake and flutter about . . .
