Hello hello hello

Can you guess what this instrument is? (Fiddle, old king Cole) It’s in this song too – (Hey diddle diddle). What about this instrument? (Banjo – oh Susannah, train). How about this one? (Horn – little boy blue)

In today’s show, we’re going to sing songs that feature different musical instruments. Are you ready? Let’s sing!

Greeting

Hi Friends! Welcome back to the Sing Along with Mandy Podcast. I’m Mandy, and I’m so glad you’re here. 

I love to sing songs and play fun – and sometimes silly – games and I especially love to sing and play with you. We’re going to sing lots of lovely songs today. 

If you like what you hear, would you take a video or picture or a screenshot and share it? Be sure to tag me in it so I can say hi! I’m at the @singalongpodcast on Instagram and Facebook and @PodcastSing on Twitter.

If you or your adult would like to see the lyrics to the songs in this episode, I’ll leave a link in the show notes.  If you don’t know a song yet, don’t worry! Just listen and sing along when you can. 

Old King Cole – Featured sing along book – extended version by Iza Trapani

Old King Cole was a merry old soul,

And a merry old soul was he;

He called for his pipe, and he called for his bowl,

And he called for his fiddlers three.

Every fiddler he had a fiddle,

And a very fine fiddle had he;

Oh there’s none so rare, as can compare,

With King Cole and his fiddlers three.

Hey Diddle Diddle 20 – With a meow meow

Hey diddle diddle

The cat and the fiddle 

The cow jumped over the moon

The little dog laughed to see such sport

And the dish ran away with the spoon, the spoon

The dish ran away with the spoon

Aiken Drum, E10 – 3, 2, 1, Blast Off!

There was a man lived in the moon, in the moon, in the moon,

There was a man lived in the moon,

And his name was Aiken Drum.

CHORUS: 

And he played upon a ladle, a ladle, a ladle,

he played upon a ladle,

and his name was Aiken Drum.

His hair was made of spaghetti…

CHORUS

And his eyes were made of meatballs

Rhythm repeat

Let’s play our Rhythm Repeat game! First, let’s warm up our hands with a drumroll. Use you hands to slap your thighs! (drumroll)

Can you clap your hands? (clap) Can you snap your fingers? (snap) Can you slap your knees? (Slap) I call this next game Rhythm Repeat. It’s very easy.

I’m going to say some very silly words and then you repeat them. You can clap, snap and slap along too!

My turn, your turn, 8 rounds]

Little Boy Blue

Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn,

The sheep’s in the meadow, the cow’s in the corn.

Where is that boy who looks after the sheep?

He’s under a haystack, fast asleep.

Oh Susannah, 1 – Valerie’s Favorites

I came from Alabama,

With my banjo on my knee,

I’m goin’ to Louisiana,

My true love for to see;

It rain’d all night the day I left,

The weather it was dry,

The sun so hot I froze to death,

Susanna, don’t you cry.

CHORUS

Oh! Susanna, 

Oh don’t you cry for me,

I’ve come from Alabama

With my banjo on my knee.

I had a dream the other night

When everything was still,

I thought I saw Susanna

A coming down de hill;

The buckwheat cake was in her  mouth,

The tear was in her eye;

Says I, “I’m coming from the south,

Susanna, don’t you cry.”

CHORUS

I’ve Been Working on the Railroad 18: All About Trains

I’ve been working on the railroad

All the live-long day.

I’ve been working on the railroad

Just to pass the time away.

Can’t you hear the whistle blowing,

Rise up so early in the morn;

Can’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

Strummin’ on the old banjo!

Singin’ fee, fie, fiddly-i-o

Fee, fie, fiddly-i-o-o-o-o

Fee, fie, fiddly-i-o

Strummin’ on the old banjo.
