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!

Three men in a tub,

And who do you think they be?

The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker,

And all of them out to sea.

Row row row your boat

Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the stream

Merrily merrily, merrily, merrily

Life is but a dream

I saw a ship a-sailing,

A-sailing on the sea.

And, oh, but it was laden

With pretty things for thee.

There were comfits in the cabin,

Were four-and-twenty white mice,

With chains about their necks.

The captain was a duck,

With a packet on his back,

And when the ship began to move,

The captain said, “Quack! Quack!”

Sailing, sailing,

Over the bounding main,

For many a stormy wind shall blow

‘Til we come home again.

Milk and honey on the other side, hallelujah.

The steamboat had a bell, (Toot! Toot!)

Miss Lucy went to heaven,

And the steamboat went to

Hello operator, give me # 9 and,

If you disconnect me, I will kick you right

Behind the refrigerator, there laid a piece of glass,

Miss Lucy sat upon it, and broke her little

Ask me no more questions, please tell me no more lies

Miss Susie told me all of this the day before she

Died her hair all purple, she died her hair all pink

She died her hair all polka dots and washed it down the
