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!

Down by the banks of the Hanky Panky

Down by the banks of the Hanky Panky,

Where the bull frogs jump from bank to banky,

With a hip, hop, hippity, hop,

Leap off a lily pad and go KERPLOP!

Jack be Nimble

Jack be Nimble, Jack be quick,

Jack jump over the candlestick!

Skip to my loo

Also heard in nowtakeoff.com/colors

Skip, skip, skip to my Lou,

Skip, skip, skip to my Lou,

Skip, skip, skip to my Lou,

Skip to my Lou, my darlin’.


Fly in the buttermilk, shoo, fly, shoo.

Fly in the buttermilk, shoo, fly, shoo.

Fly in the buttermilk, shoo, fly, shoo.

Skip to my Lou, my darlin’.

There’s a little red wagon, paint it blue.

I lost my partner, what’ll I do?

I’ll get another, as pretty as you

Little bunny foo foo

Little Bunny Foo Foo, 

Hopping through the forest,

Scooping up the field mice, 

And bopping them on the head.

Down came the Good Fairy, and she said,

“Little Bunny Foo Foo,

I don’t want to see you,

Scooping up the field mice

And bopping them on the head.”

“I’ll give you three chances,

And if you don’t behave,

I’m gonna turn you into a goon!”

The next day….

Decrease chances. Once there are no more chances, the Good Fairy says…

“I gave you three chances, 

And you didn’t listen,

And now I’m gonna turn you into a goon. POOF!”

Five speckled frogs

Five little speckled frogs

Sat on a speckled log

Eating the most delicious grubs (yum yum)

One jumped into the pool

Where it was nice and cool

Then there were four green speckled frogs. (glup glup)

Decrease until there are no green speckled frogs

Miss Mary Mack

Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack

All dressed in black, black, black

With silver buttons, buttons, buttons

All down her back, back, back.

She asked her mother, mother, mother

For 50 cents, cents, cents

To see the elephants, elephants, elephants

Jump over the fence, fence, fence.

They jumped so high, high, high

They reached the sky, sky, sky

They never came back, back back

Till the 4th of July, ly, ly!

Our last song today is a jump rope chant. You can jump with a pretend rope or learn how to play with a real rope! To begin just start hopping! When we say ‘do the splits’, you can jump and kick your legs. When we say ‘do the twist’ you can jump and turn in the air so you land facing the other direction

Spanish Dancer

Not last night but the night before,

Twenty-four robbers came knocking at my door

I asked them what they wanted,

And this is what they said:

Spanish Dancer, do the splits,

Spanish Dancer, do the twist,

Spanish Dancer, turn around

Spanish Dancer, touch the ground,

Spanish Dancer, go out the back

Spanish Dancer, please come back.

Spanish Dancer, read a book.

Spanish Dancer, do not look.

(and then we jump and count!)

1, 2, 3, 4, 5…
