Hello hello hello

We all need some happiness right now!

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. 

And – quick housekeeping announcement –  During these unprecedented times, Valerie and I are recording new episodes on Wednesdays 10a Central on Instagram live. You can find it in my stories for 24 hours at @singalongpodcast. We’re also putting the video on our new YouTube channel – so find us there or on YouTube Kids!

Now, 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!

Upward trail

We’re on the upward trail,

We’re on the upward trail,

Singing, singing, everybody singing as we go.

We’re on the upward trail,

We’re on the upward trail,

Singing, singing, everybody singing homeward bound.

I love the mountains

I love the mountains.

I love the rolling hills.

I love the flowers.

I love the daffodils.

I love the fireside.

When the lights are low…

Boom dee ah da. Boom dee ah da.

Boom dee ah da. Boom dee ah da.

S-M-I-L-E

It isn’t any trouble just to S-M-I-L-E

It isn’t any trouble just to S-M-I-L-E

So smile when you’re in trouble

It will vanish like a bubble

If you’ll take the trouble just to S-M-I-L-E

It isn’t any trouble just to L-A-U-G-H

It isn’t any trouble just to L-A-U-G-H

So laugh when you’re in trouble

It will vanish like a bubble

If you’ll take the trouble just to L-A-U-G-H

It isn’t any trouble just to G-R-I-N grin

It isn’t any trouble just to G-R-I-N grin

So grin when you’re in trouble

It will vanish like a bubble

If you’ll take the trouble just to G-R-I-N grin

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha

He, he, he, he, he, he, he, he

Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho

Ha, ha, he, he, ho, he, ho

It isn’t any trouble just to S-M-I-L-E

It isn’t any trouble just to S-M-I-L-E

So smile when you’re in trouble

It will vanish like a bubble

If you’ll take the trouble just to S-M-I-L-E

Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the stream

Merrily merrily, merrily, merrily

Life is but a dream

Repeat

Kookabura – a bird native to Australia and New Guinea

Listen to a Kookaburra call from the Cincinnati zoo – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fc_-icFHwQo 

Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree,

Merry merry king of the bush is he.

Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra,

Gay your life must be!

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree

Eating all the gumdrops he can see

Stop, Kookaburra, Stop, Kookaburra

Leave some there for me.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,

Counting all the monkeys he can see

Stop, Kookaburra, Stop, Kookaburra,

That’s no monkey, that’s me.
