Letter A Song
(To Down by the Station)

A is for Alice,
Who met an alligator,
Swishing down the alleyway
on Apple Avenue.
“Shoo!” said Alice,
"I’m allergic to all gators,
Ah- choo!, Ah- choo!"
Off she flew.

Way Up High in the Apple Tree
Way up high in the apple tree
Two little apples smiled at me.
I shook that tree as hard as I could!
Down came the apples,
Mmmmm, they were good!

5 Little Monkeys Swinging in A Tree
5 little monkeys swinging in a tree (hold up 5 fingers, swing back & forth)
Teasing Mr. Alligator,
"You can't catch me, you can't catch me" (thumbs in ears, waving hands)
Along comes Mr. Alligator quiet as can be (whisper -palms together)
And (clap) snaps that monkey right out of that tree.
4 little monkeys. . .
3 little monkeys. . .
2 litttle monkeys. . .
1 little monkey. . .

No more monkeys swinging in the tree!

B Song
(To Ninety-Nine Bottles)

Bubba’s best buddy
was Bingo the Bear.
Bubba was Bingo’s best friend.
They both lived together
on Blueberry Lane,
picking big berries
in sun and in rain.

Little Boy Blue
Little Boy Blue
Come blow your horn
The sheep's in the meadow
The cow's in the corn
Where is the boy
Looking after the sheep?
He's under the haystack
Fast asleep

Here is the Beehive
Here is the beehive
Where are the bees?
Hiding away
Where nobody sees
Here they come
Out of their hive

Baby Bumblebee
I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee
Won't my Mommy be so proud of me?
I'm bringing home a baby bumblebee
OUCH! He stung me!

C Song
(To Do Your Ears Hang Low?)

Can you bake a cake?
Can you cook a T-bone steak?
Can you make a chocolate malted?
Can you make an ice cream shake?
Can you boil a cup of water?
Clean the dishes like you ought to?
Can you bake a cake?

Hickory Dickory Dock
Hickory Dickory Dock (clap with each word)
The mouse ran up the clock. (right fingers run up left arm)
The clock struck one (over head, clap hands once loudly)
The mouse ran down (right fingers run down left arm)
Hickory Dickory Dock (clap with each word)

5 Pretty Autumn Leaves
  5 pretty Autumn leaves
One yellow, two red, two brown.
A little breeze came by
And blew the YELLOW one down.

Four colored leaves
Are left up in the tree,
A RED leaf floated down,
Now there are three.

Three fall leaves
And the wind whistles through,
The RED leaf twisted loose,
And now there are two.

Two little leaves,
Both of them are BROWN
One broke off
And fluttered to the ground.

Now we see there’s only one,
The last one fell,
And now our story’s done.

It's Autumn Time

It’s Autumntime, It’s Autumntime
The leaves are falling down
It’s Autumntime It’s Autumntime
It’s all around the town.
It’s Autumn time, It’s Autumn time
There’s YELLOW, RED, and BROWN
It’s Autumntime, It’s Autumntime
Pretty colors can be found
