A Sailor Went to Sea

A Sailor went to sea, sea, sea
To see what he could see, see, see.
But all that he could see, see, see,
Was the bottom of the deep blue,
Sea, sea, sea.


Bobby Shaftoe

Bobby Shaftoe's gone to sea,
Silver buckles on his knee.
He'll come back and marry me,
Bonny Bobby Shaftoe.

Bobby Shaftoe's fine and fair,
Combing down his auburn hair.
He's my friend for evermore,
Bonny Bobby Shaftoe.


Down at the Station

Down at the station
Early in the morning
See the little engines
All in a row -
The man inside the engine
Turns a little handle
Poop-poop, choof-choof
Off we go!


Early In The Morning

Come down to the railway station early in the morning,
See all the railway trains standing in a row.
See all the drivers starting up the engines,
Clickety click and clackety clack,
Off they go!

Come down to the garage early in the morning,
See all the buses standing in a row.

See all the motor-boats floating in a row.
See all the drivers starting up the engines,
Splishing, splashing, ssploshing, sploshing,

See all the aeroplanes standing in a row.
See all the pilots starting up the engines,
Whirring, whirring, whirring, whirring.
Off they go!

Five Little Men in a Flying Saucer

Five little men in a flying saucer,
Flew around the world one day.
They looked left and right,
But they didn't like the sight.
So one man flew away.
ZOOOOOOOOOM!

Four little men in a flying saucer......

Continue until they've all gone.


I've Been Workin' on the Railroad

I've been workin' on the railroad,
All the live long day.
I've been workin' on the railroad,
Just to pass the time away.
Don't you hear the whistle blowing?
Rise up so early in the morn.
Don't you hear the captain shouting
"Dinah, blow your horn"?
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow your horn?
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow,
Dinah, won't you blow your horn?
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah.
Someone's in the kitchen, I know.
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah
Strumming on the old banjo.
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o.
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o.
Fee, fie, fiddle-e-i-o.
Strumming on the old banjo.


Michael, Row the Boat Ashore

Michael, row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah.
Michael, row the boat ashore,
Hallelujah.
Sister, help to trim the sails,
Hallelujah.
Sister, help to trim the sails,
Hallelujah.
River Jordan's deep and wide,
Hallelujah.
Milk and honey on the other side,
Hallelujah.
River Jordan's chilly and cold,
Hallelujah.
Chills the body, but warms the soul,
Hallelujah.


Puff-a-train

Puff-a-train, puff-a-train
Noisy little puff-a-train
If you're going to the sea
Puff-a-train, oh please take me
Sh, sh, sh, sh .
Noisy little puff-a-train!


Row, Row, 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.
If you see a crocodile,
Don't forget to scream


Stop! Says the Red Light

Stop says the red light
Go says the green
Be careful says the yellow light
Twinkling in between.


The Big Ship

The big ship sails on the ally-ally-oh
The ally-ally-oh
The ally-ally-oh
Oh, the big ship sails on the ally-ally-oh
On the last day of September

The captain said it will never, never do
Never, never do, never, never do
The captain said it will never, never do
On the last day of September

We all dip our heads in the deep blue sea
The deep blue sea, the deep blue sea
Oh, we all dip our heads in the deep blue sea
On the last day of September

The big ship sank to the bottom of the sea
The bottom of the sea, the bottom of the sea
Oh, the big ship sank to the bottom of the sea
On the last day of September

Oh, the big ship sails on the ally, ally-oh
The ally-ally-oh
The ally-ally-oh
Oh, the big ship sails on the ally-ally-oh
On the last day of September


The Pirate Song

When I was one,
I banged my drum.
The day I went to sea.
I jumped aboard a pirate ship,
And the captain said to me.
We're going, this way, that way,
Forwards and backwards,
Over the Irish Sea.
A bottle of rum, to warm my tum,
And that's the life for me.

When I was two,
I buckled my shoe.....

When I was three,
I banged my knee....

When I was four,
I knocked on the door....

When I was five,
I learned to dive.....


The train

Tickerty-tack
Over the track
Far, far away
Puffing all day
Tickerty-too
Hurry up do!
Trains cannot wait
Must not be late
Tickerty-tock
Nickerty-nock
Speeding along
Singing this song
Tickerty-tackerty
Nickerty-nackerty
Tickerty-tackerty
Tock!


The Wheels on the Bus

The wheels on the bus,
Go round and round,
Round and round, round and round.
The wheels on the bus,
Go round and round,
All day long.

The wipers on the bus,
Go swish, swish, swish,
Swish, swish,swish, swish, swish, swish.
The wipers on the bus,
Go swish, swish,swish,
All day long.

The horn on the bus,

Goes beep, beep, beep.........
The mummies on the bus
Go Chatter, chatter, chatter......

You can continue with as many variations as you like.


This Is The Way We Cross The Road

Green cross code

This is the way we cross the road,
We cross the road, we cross the road.
This is the way we cross the road,
We stop ,we look we listen.

We stand at the kerb and we look both ways,
Look both ways, look both ways.
We stand ant the kerb and we look both ways,
Before we cross the road.

If the road is clear we cross the road,
Cross the road, cross the road.
If the road is clear we cross the road,
We follow the green cross code.

Sung to the tune of 'Here we go round the Mulberry bush'.


Traffic Lights

Red light, red light, what do you say?
I say stop, and stop right away
Yellow light, yellow light, what do you mean?
I mean wait till the lights turn green
Green light, green light, what do you say?
I say cross, but please look each way
Thank-you, thank-you: red, yellow, green
Now we know what the traffic lights mean.
