Hello hello hello

Have you ever been on a train? Have you ever been on a plane? When you go to the store, do you take a bike or ride in your car? Have you ever ridden in a sled or on a horse? Today’s show is all about the way we travel!

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.

I’ve been working on the railroad – Also in Episode 18: All Aboard!

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.

Bumping up and down in my little red wagon

Bumping up and down in my little red wagon

Bumping up and down in my little red wagon

Bumping up and down in my little red wagon

Having so much fun.

  1. Here come my friends in my little red wagons…etc.
  2. Look at me in my little red wagon…etc.
  3. Pull me around in my little red wagon… etc.
  4. Turn the corner in my little red wagon…etc.
  5. [REPEAT 1ST VERSE]

She’ll be coming round the mountain

Featured Sing Along Book of the Show! I found a delightful version of this song in a book especially for my full time and trailer towing camping friends! It’s by Philemon Sturges and it features a woman driving a camper and bringing the party with her. I’ll leave a link in the show notes for you to check it out. Here’s the classic version:

She’ll be driving six white horses when she comes

She’ll be driving six white horses when she comes

She’ll be driving six white horses, She’ll be driving six white horses 

She’ll be driving six white horses when she comes

  • Oh we’ll all come out to meet her when she comes”
  • “She’ll be carrying three white puppies when she comes”
  • “She’ll be wearing pink pajamas when she comes”
  • “We’ll all have tasty pudding when she comes
  • Well You’ll have to sleep with Grandma when she comes

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]

Over the river and through the wood – Also in Episode 11 – Wetter Weather

Over the river, and through the wood,

To Grandfather’s house we go;

the horse knows the way to carry the sleigh

through the white and drifted snow.

Over the river, and through the wood—

oh, how the wind does blow!

It stings the toes and bites the nose

as over the ground we go.

Over the river, and through the wood—

and straight through the barnyard gate,

We seem to go extremely slow,

it is so hard to wait!

Over the river, and through the wood—

now Grandmother’s cap I spy!

Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?

Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

Sailing Sailing

Sailing, sailing, over the bounding main;

For many a stormy wind shall blow, ‘ere Jack comes home again!

Sailing, sailing, over the bounding main;

For many a stormy wind shall blow ‘ere Jack comes home again.

Row, Row, Row your Boat – Also in Episode 2 – Water Water Everywhere

Our first song is Row Row Row Your Boat. If you’re sitting in the car, you can put your hands out like your holding the oars and pulllll them back to you! If you’re not in the car, you can sit facing someone, knees to knees. Hold hands and pull each other like you’re rowing a boat together!

Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the stream

Merrily merrily, merrily, merrily

Life is but a dream

REPEAT

This next song is called Down at Grandpa’s Farm. But, I changed the words to be about Grandpa’s Garage because my dad, my kids’ Grandpa, loves anything with a motor in it!

Down in Grandpa’s Garage

We’re on our way,

We’re on our way

On our way to Grandpa’s garage.

We’re on our way,

We’re on our way

On our way to Grandpa’s garage. 

Down in Grandpa’s garage 

There is a little red corvette…

The car, it makes a sound like this: 

“Beep, beep!” 

Down in Grandpa’s garage 

There is a big blue truck…

The truck, it makes a sound like this: 

“Vrrrrm vrmmm!” 

Down in Grandpa’s garage 

There is a big yellow school bus…

The truck, it makes a sound like this: 

“Vrrrrm vrmmm!” 

Down in Grandpa’s garage 

There is a really loud hotrod…

The truck, it makes a sound like this: 

“Vrrrrm vrmmm!” 

Bicycle built for two

Daisy, Daisy,

Give me your answer, do!

I’m half crazy,

All for the love of you!

It won’t be a stylish marriage,

I can’t afford a carriage,

But you’ll look sweet on the seat

Of a bicycle built for two!

Closing
