Hello hello hello

Simple, sweet, and silly singalong songs celebrating mamas!


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. 

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!

Here’s a sweet mother’s day I found on It’s called I Love Mommy.

I love mommy

Tune: Frere Jacques

I love Mommy, I love Mommy,

Yes I do, yes I do

All I want to say

Is “Happy Mother’s Day”

I love you, I love you! 

We love mothers

Tune: Frere Jacques

We love mothers.

We love mothers.

Yes we do; yes we do.

Mothers are for hugging

Mothers are for kissing

We love you; yes, we do.

Mama’s take care of their children – and dispense hugs and kisses along with bandages and ice packs. Here’s little tom tinker crying for his mama to make his finger feel better….

little tom tinker

Little Tom Tinker got burned by a clinker

And he began to cry,

“Ma, Ma, What a poor fellow am I.”

And sometimes mamas get overwhelmed by all the bumps and bruises and hands and needs of their littles. This poem makes me laugh. 

old woman who lived in a shoe

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.

She had so many children, she didn’t know what to do.

She gave them some broth without any bread;

And whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.

My friend, Kelly, has four kids – including a set of three year old twins. She made a big blue boot costume last year for Halloween – I’ll put a picture in the show notes so you can laugh too. 

Here’s a funny rhyme I found from Ireland:

123 my mother caught a flea

One, two, three,

Me mother caught a flea,

She put it in the teapot

And made a cup of tea.

The flea jumped out,

Me mother gave a shout

And in came daddy

With his shirt hanging out.

Now, let’s get those hands ready for a fingerplay song. 

Bringing Home a Baby Bumblebee

I’m bringing home a baby bumblebee.

Won’t my mommy be so proud of me?

I’m bringing home a baby bumblebee.

Ouch! It stung me!

I’m squishing up the baby bumblebee

Won’t my mommy be so proud of me?

I’m squishing up the baby bumblebee.

Oh no! It’s yucky!

I’m wiping off the baby bumblebee.

Won’t my mommy be so proud of me?

I’m wiping off the baby bumblebee.

Look! All clean!


Tune: Bingo Source:

I love her and she loves me,

And Mommy is her name-o,




And Mommy is her name-o!

Skidamarink a dink a dink,

skidamarink a doo.

I love you!

Skidamarink a dink a dink,

skidamarink a doo.

I love you!

I love you in the morning,

and in the afternoon.

I love you in the evening,

and underneath the moon.

Oh skidamarink a dink a dink a dink,

skidamarink a doo.

I love you!


Finally, here’s a sweet version of Rock a bye baby when mama does what mama’s do best – take care of their little ones as best they can. 

rock a bye baby

Rock a bye baby on a treetop

When the wind blows the cradle will rock

When the bough breaks the cradle with fall

And mama will catch it, cradle and all.
