Bri Children's songs (40) RE: Children's songs 11 Apr 99


I have a couple from the daycare I volunteer at...

What can make a hippopotamus smile?
What can make him walk for more than a mile?
It's not a tune on an old violin
Or listenin' to the whispering wind.
That's not what hippos do!

CHORUS--
Theeeeyyyyy....ooze through the gooze without and shoes,
Wade through the water till their lips turn blue.
That's what hippos do!

What can make a hippopotamus smile?
What can make him walk for more than a mile?
It's not a paper party hat
Or a bag of candy that will make him fat.
That's not what hippos do!

(repeat chorus)
There are motions to this song and I'll give them if you don't already know this song! :o)

and then there's--

Way up in the sky,
The little birds fly,
While down in the nest (cup arms like rocking a baby),
The little birds rest (hands together against cheek, like sleeping).
With a wing on the left (make arm into a wing)
and a wing on the right (make arm into a wing)
the little birds sleep all through the night (repeat 1st sleeping gesture)

shhhhhhh!!!! THEY'RE SLEEPING(shout)!!!!

The bright sun comes up (throw hands up),
The dew falls away (bring hands a little more down on every word).
Good Morning, Good morning (fling hands up each time good morning is said)
The little birds say!
