Hello hello hello

This week I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to be a good friend and a good person. I hope you have too. We can always find something to like about other people and playing with friends we love is one of the best things about living.

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. 

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. You can also find a video of us recording this episode there or on our Sing Along with Mandy Podcast channel on youtube.

 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!

make new friends, but keep the old

Make new friends, but keep the old.

One is silver, the other is gold.

A circle is round, it has no end.

That’s how long, I want to be your friend.

Say say oh playmate

Say, say, oh playmate,

Come out and play with me

And bring your dollies three

Climb up my apple tree

Shout down my rain barrel

Slide down my cellar door

And we’ll be jolly friends

Forever more more more more more

Say, say, oh playmate

I cannot play with you

My dolly’s got the flu

Boo hoo hoo hoo hoo hoo

Ain’t got no rain barrel

Ain’t got no cellar door

But we’ll be jolly friends

Forever more more more more more

Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill went up the hill

To fetch a pail of water

Jack fell down and broke his crown

And Jill came tumbling after

Jack got up, and home did trot

As fast as he could caper

To old Dame Dob, who patched his nob

With vinegar and brown paper

Taffy was a welshman

Taffy was a Welshman, Taffy was a thief;

Taffy came to my house and stole a leg of beef;

I went to Taffy’s house and Taffy was in bed;

I upped with the jerry pot and hit him on the head.

Taffy was a Welshman, Taffy was a thief;

Taffy came to my house and stole a piece of beef;

I went to Taffy’s house, Taffy wasn’t in;

I jumped upon his Sunday hat and poked it with a pin.

Taffy was a Welshman, Taffy was a sham;

Taffy came to my house and stole a piece of lamb;

I went to Taffy’s house, Taffy was away,

I stuffed his socks with sawdust and filled his shoes with clay.

Taffy was a Welshman, Taffy was a cheat,

Taffy came to my house, and stole a piece of meat;

I went to Taffy’s house, Taffy was not there,

I hung his coat and trousers to roast before a fire.

Twiddledum

Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dee

Resolved to have a battle,

For Tweedle-dum said Tweedle-dee

Had spoiled his nice new rattle.

Just then flew by a monstrous crow,

As big as a tar barrel,

Which frightened both the heroes so,

They quite forgot their quarrel.

How can we make up when a we do something a friend doesn’t like?
