Hello hello hello

I love to play games, don’t you? Today I’m going to play a few mystery melodies. You and your family can see if you recognize it but there’s a surprise – each melody has at least two right answers! Ready to play? Let’s go!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. 

Mystery Song #1

Do you know what this song is? 

(CCEEGGGGF….)

Did you make a guess? Is it Twinkle Twinkle Little Star? Or, did you say the ABC song? Or… did you say Baa Baa Black Sheep?

Can you believe all three of those songs have the same notes? I’ll hum it again. 

CCEEGGGGF…

Let’s sing the songs!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

When this blazing sun is gone,

When he nothing shines upon,

Then you show your little light,

Twinkle, twinkle, through the night.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

Then the traveller in the dark

Thanks you for your tiny spark;

He could not see where to go,

If you did not twinkle so.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

ABC

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

Baa Baa Black Sheep

Baa Baa Black Sheep have you any wool? 

Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.

One for my master, one for my dame, 

One for the little boy who lived down the lane

Baa Baa black sheep have you any wool? 

Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.

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, 4 rounds:

Ta Ta Ta Ta

Ta Ta ti ti Ta

Ti ti ta ti ti ta

Ta ti ti Ta chocolate

In keeping with the theme of our show with mixed up melodies, I can change the syllables we say and still practice the same rhythm. So, just like our numbers episode – Episode 13: Numbers, Numbers, Numbers, let’s play our rhythm repeat game with numbers. 

1 2 3 4  That’s the same as Ta Ta Ta Ta

1 2 3and 4 —-> Ta Ta ti ti Ta

1and 2 3and 4 ——-> Ti ti ta ti ti ta

1 2and 3 tripelet ———> Ta ti ti Ta chocolate

Here’s our next mystery melody

Mystery Melody 2

Oh My Darling

Near a cavern, across from a canyon,

Excavating for a mine,

Lived a miner, forty-niner

And his daughter Clementine

CHORUS: Oh my Darling, Oh my Darling,

Oh my Darling Clementine.

You are lost and gone forever,

Dreadful sorry, Clementine.

Light she was and like a fairy,

And her shoes were number nine

Herring boxes without topses

Sandals were for Clementine. 

CHORUS

Found a Peanut

Found a peanut, found a peanut, found a peanut just now.

Just now I found a peanut, found a peanut just now.

Then it continues with the same rhythm:

Cracked it open

It was rotten

Ate it anyway

Got a stomach ache

Called the doctor

Operation

Died anyway

Went to Heaven

Wouldn’t take me

Went the other way

Didn’t want me 

Woke Up

It was a dream

Found a Peanut….

Here’s our next mystery melody

Mystery Melody 3

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring

It’s raining. It’s pouring.

The old man is snoring.

He bumped his head and went to bed

and couldn’t get up in the morning

A tisket, A tasket

A-tisket, a-tasket

A green and yellow basket

I send a letter to my love

On the way I dropped it

I dropped it, I dropped it

Yes, on the way I dropped it

A little girlie picked it up

And took put it in her pocket

Closing
