Lima Bean Song 

My dog Lima likes to roam. One day Lima* roamed from home. He came back all nice and clean. Where oh where has Lima* Bean? Lima* Bean, Lima* Bean, Where oh where has Lima* Bean? Lima* Bean, Lima* Bean, Where oh where has Lima* Bean? 

 

*Replace Lima with different types of beans for each verse*

Examples: black, coffee, jelly, green 

 

Down by the Bay 

Down by the bay 

Where the watermelons grow 

Back to my home 

I dare not go 

For if I do 

My mother will say 

"Did you ever you ever see a goose

kiss a moose?" *

Down by the bay

 

*Any rhyme will work here!

Other examples: 

Have you ever seen a frog on a log? 

Have you ever seen a whale with a polka dotted tail? 

Have you ever seen a mouse inside of a house? 

 
Tony Chestnut 

Toe-knee chest-nut nose I love you, toe-knee nose, toe-knee nose, toe-knee chest nust nose I love you, that’s what toe-knee nose. Toe- knee, toe-knee, and his sister I-lean. And I-lean loves kneel and kneel loves pat but pat still loves bob. And there’s russell and skip, this song is silly, but it’s hip. And how it ends only one man nose and guess what it’s TOE-KNEE CHEST NUT  

*POINT TO BODY PARTS 

 

Happiness Runs 

Happiness runs in a circular motion, love is like a little boat upon the sea. Everybody is a part of everything anyway, you can be happy if you set yourself free. BABABABABABABABABABABABABABABABABABABABABABABABA

Happiness runs, happiness runs, (clap clap), happiness runs happiness runs

*Then go faster or slower each time
