"London Bridge is Falling Down" - from Nancy - history of the bridge

16 verses & MIDI from NIEHS

Game 1:
Formation:
Two children join hands and form an arch.
They secretly decide who is silver and who is gold. The other children form a single line to pass under the bridge.
Action: Children in line pass under the bridge. On "My fair lady", the bridge falls and captures a prisoner.
Chorus...The bridge gently sways the prisoner back and forth. At the end of the chorus, the prisoner is secretly asked, "Do you want to pay with silver or gold?" The prisoner then stands behind the child representing his choice. The game continues with verses and chorus until all children have been captured. A tug-of-war between "gold" and "silver" ends the game.
Game 2:
Formation:
Same as Game 1.
Action: Same as Game 1 through the choice of "silver or gold." At this point, the prisoner takes the place in the bridge of the child representing his choice. The child who was part of the bridge joins the line and the game continues. from http://www.punkyschildcare.com/music/london.html

"Lord's Army" - from Holly (same tune as "Great Big Gobs...")

I may never march in the infantry, Ride in the cavalry, Shoot the artillery.
I may never zoom o'er the enemy, But I'm in the Lord's army.
I'm in the Lord's army, (yes, sir!) I'm in the Lord's army, (yes, sir!)
I may never march in the infantry, Ride in the cavalry, Shoot the artillery.
I may never zoom o'er the enemy, But I'm in the Lord's army. (yes, sir!)

Oh Tom the Toad, Oh Tom the Toad
Why did you hop across the road?

Now you are a streak of
slime.
Oh Tom the Toad, Oh Tom the Toad
Why did you hop across the road?

"Baby Bumblebee" - Beth

(Cup hands together as if holding bee)
I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee,
Won't my mommy be so proud of me,
I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee,
Ouch! It stung me! (Shake hands as if just stung)

('Squish' bee between palms of hands)
I'm squishing up the baby bumblebee,
Won't my mommy be so proud of me,
I'm squishing up a baby bumblebee,
Ooh! It's yucky!
(Open up hands to look at 'mess')

(Wipe hands off on shirt)
I'm wiping off the baby bumblebee,
Won't my mommy be so proud of me,
I'm wiping off the baby bumblebee,
Now my mommy won't be mad at me!
(Hold hands up to show they are clean)

Here's a cute verse to add to the song..
from http://www.dltk-teach.com/rhymes/bumblebee/song.htm.
I'm bringing home my baby dinosaur
Won't my mommy hide behind the door
I'm bringing home my baby dinosaur
Ooh eee it stepped on me!


"Jesus Loves Me" - Ricky

Jesus loves me I can say
He watches me both night and day
He show's His love
In many ways
And to Him this is why I pray.

"Alfred the Alligator" - Brittany
Have you ever been down the waterspout
To the very bottom of the water system?
There you'll find a little alligator that goes by the name of Alfred,

If you do, he's mine.
I lost him.
I threw him down the waterspout
And now I'm feeling lonely cause he's gone
I miss him.

"Junebugs Come in the Middle of June" - Leann

Junebugs come in the middle of June
Lightning bugs come in May
Bedbugs come just any old time
But they ain't got long to stay.


"Gobble! Gobble"

"Gobble, Gobble!" said the Turkey to the Pumpkin Pie.
"I don't like the look in the Pilgrim's eye!
Now, he's chasing me. I don't know why!
So, I'll take this time to say, 'Bye, bye!'"


Oh! The Starship Captain Kirk
Tune: "A-Hunting We Will Go"
 
Oh! The Starship Captain Kirk
He Had A Thousand Men,
He Beamed 'em Up To The Enterprise
Everyone stands up
And Beamed 'em Down Again.
Everyone sits down
And When You're Up Your Up,
Everyone stands up
And When You're Down Your Down,
Everyone sits down
And When You're Only Half Way Up,
Everyone half-way up
You're Nowhere to Be Found.


Richer than I you will never be
For I have a mother who sang to me!
