All of me
See my eyes.
See my nose.
See my chin,
see my toes.
See my waist.
See my knee.
Now you have seen all of me!
In the Apple Tree
Away up high in an apple tree
Two red apples smiled at me
I shook that tree as hard as I could
Down came the apples and
m-m-m-m they were good.
How very quiet things can be,
With just the dog, the cat, and me.
There's no one else to laugh and shout,
To dance and sing and run about
With just the dog, the cat, and me,
How very quiet things can be.
Spring is showery, flowery, bowery;
Summer: hoppy, croppy, poppy;
Autumn: wheezy, sneezy, freezy;
Winter: slippy, drippy, nippy.
Five Baby Birds
Five baby birds in a nest in a tree
Are just as hungry as they can be.
"Peep." said baby bird number one.
Mother bird promised she would come.
"Beep.beep." said baby bird number two.
If she doesn't come, what will we do?
"Peep, peep, peep," said baby bird number three.
I hope that she can find this tree.
"Peep, peep, peep, peep," said baby bird number four.
She never as so late before.
"Peep. peep, peep, peep, peep," said baby bird number five.
When will our mother bird arrive?
Well, here she comes to feed her family.
They're as happy as they can be.
Today I have a birthday.
I'm six years old you see.
And here I have a birthday cake
Which you may share with me.
First we count the candles,
Count them, every one. One... two... three... four... five... six.
The counting now is done.
Let's snuff out the candles,
Out each flame will go... "wh... wh... wh... wh... wh... wh..."
As one by one we blow.
