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. Are you ready? Let’s sing!

Ladybird, Ladybird

Ladybird*, ladybird, 

Fly away home, 

Your house is on fire, 

And your children all gone, 

All except one, 

And that’s little Ann, 

For she crept under, 

The frying pan.

Itsy Bitsy Spider and in Spanish!

The itsy-bitsy spider

Climbed up the water spout

Down came the rain

And washed the spider out

Out came the sun

And dried up all the rain

And the itsy-bitsy spider

Climbed up the spout again

Friends, I’m so excited – earlier I called my friend Ms. Kim and asked her for an easy Spanish version of the Itsy Bitsy Spider. This is her version.

La araña pequeñita

La araña pequeñita

subió, subió, subió

vino la lluvia

y se la llevó.

Salió el sol 

y todo lo secó

y la araña pequeñita 

 subió, subió, subió.

A flea and a fly

A flea and a fly 

Flew up in a flue. 

Said the flea, “Let us fly!” 

Said the fly, “Let us flee!” 

So they flew through 

A flaw in the flue.

There was an old woman

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly;

I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a spider; 

That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her!

She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;

I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a bird; 

How absurd to swallow a bird!

She swallowed the bird to catch the spider;

That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her!

She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;

I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a cat; 

Fancy that! She swallowed a cat!

She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,

She swallowed the bird to catch the spider;

That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her!

She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;

I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady that swallowed a dog; 

What a hog, to swallow a dog!

She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,

She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,

She swallowed the bird to catch the spider;

That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her!

She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;

I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a cow; 

I don’t know how she swallowed a cow!

She swallowed the cow to catch the dog,

She swallowed the dog to catch the cat,

She swallowed the cat to catch the bird,

She swallowed the bird to catch the spider;

That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her!

She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;

I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – Perhaps she’ll die!

There was an old lady who swallowed a horse;

…She’s dead, of course!

Shoo fly

Shoo, fly, don’t bother me,

Shoo, fly, don’t bother me,

Shoo, fly, don’t bother me,

For I belong to somebody.

I feel, I feel, I feel like a morning star,

I feel, I feel, I feel like a morning star.

Oh, shoo, fly, don’t bother me,

Shoo, fly, don’t bother me,

Shoo, fly, don’t bother me,

For I belong to somebody.

Nobody likes me

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me

I think I’ll go eat worms!

Big fat juicy ones

Eensie weensy squeensy ones

See how they wiggle and squirm!

[Verse 1]

Down goes the first one, down goes the second one

Oh how they wiggle and squirm!

Up comes the first one, up comes the second one

Oh how they wiggle and squirm!

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me

I think I’ll go eat worms!

Big fat juicy ones

Eensie weensy squeensy ones

See how they wiggle and squirm!

Boom Boom 

A horse and a flea and three blind mice

Sat on a curbstone covered in ice

The horse he slipped and fell on the flea

“Whoops,” said the flea, “There’s a horse on me!”

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

Giggly and foolish the whole day through

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

Way down South where bananas grow

A flea stepped on an elephant’s toe

The elephant cried, with tears in his eyes

“Why don’t you pick on someone your size?”

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

Giddy and foolish the whole day through

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

Way up North where there’s ice and snow

There lived a penguin and his name was Joe

He got so tired of black and white

He wore pink slacks to the dance last night!

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?

Giggly and foolish the whole day through

Boom, boom, ain’t it great to be crazy?
