City Songbirds nursery rhymes

 

Singing songs and rhymes with your baby or child is really good for them, as the rhythms and repetitive language make it easier for children to learn new words.

 

Your child will love hearing the same rhymes over and over again and will soon learn to join in with the actions. Singing and reciting with your child is also a great way to bond with them.

Listen below to some popular songs and nursery rhymes sung by the Stoke-on-Trent City Songbirds.

Incy wincy spider

Incy Wincy spider climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain
So Incy Wincy spider climbed up the spout again.

Baa baa black sheep

Baa baa black sheep

Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full
One for the master and one for the dame
And one for the little boy who lives down the lane

One Potato

One potato, two potato, three potato, four
Five potato, six potato, seven potato, more

 

One potato, two potato, three potato, four
Five potato, six potato, seven potato, more 

Five little speckled frogs

Five little speckled frogs, sat on a speckled log,

Eating a most delicious bug, yum, yum!

One jumped into the pool where it was nice and cool

Then there were four green speckled frogs, glub, glub.-

 

Four, three, two, one – no green speckled frogs.

Row your boat

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream.

 

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream

 

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
If you see a crocodile
Don’t forget to scream, aagh!

Head, shoulders, knees and toes

Head, shoulders, knees and toes,

knees and toes.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes,

knees and toes.
And eyes and ears and mouth and nose.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes,

knees and toes.

Here we go round the mulberry bush

Here we go round the mulberry bush

The mulberry bush, the mulberry bush

Here we go round the mulberry bush

On a cold and frosty morning.

Hickory dickory dock

Hickory Dickory Dock, the mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck one, the mouse ran down
Hickory dickory Dock, tick tock, tick tock

Three blind mice

Three blind mice
Three blind mice
See how they run
See how they run
They all ran after the farmer’s wife
Who chopped off their tails with a carving knife
Did you ever see such a thing in your life as
Three blind mice

I'm a little teapot

I’m a little teapot short and stout
Here’s my handle
Here’s my spout
When the tea is ready
Hear me shout
Tip me up and pour me out.

Round and round the garden

Round and round the garden
Like a teddy bear.
One step, two step,
Tickle you under there

It's raining, it's pouring

It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring
He went to bed and bumped his head and couldn’t get up in the morning.

When all the cows are sleeping

When all the cows are sleeping
And the sun has gone to bed,
Up jumped a scarecrow
And this is what he said

I’m a dingle dangle scarecrow
With a flippy floppy head
I can shake my hands like this
I can stamp my feet like that.

Miss Polly had a dolly

Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick
So she phoned for a doctor to come quick, quick, quick
The doctor came with his bag and his hat
And he knocked on the door with a rat-a-tat tat
He looked at the dolly and he shook his head
And he said Miss Polly put her straight to bed
He wrote on a paper for a pill, pill, pill
I’ll be back in the morning with my bill, bill, bill

Wind the bobbin up

Wind the bobbin up,
Wind the bobbin up,
Pull, pull, clap, clap, clap.

 

Point to the ceiling,
Point to the floor,
Point to the window,
Point to the door,

Clap your hands together, 1, 2, 3,
Put your hands upon your knee

 

Wind it back again,
Wind it back again,
Pull, pull, clap, clap, clap.
