Songs Sung as a Round
Black socks, they never get dirty,
The longer you wear them the stronger they get.
Sometimes I think I should wash them,
But something keeps telling me no, not yet, not yet, not yet...
(To the tune of Frere Jacque)
Cuddlerly Koalas, Cuddlerly Koalas (rock baby koala)
Possums too, Possums too (use fingers to form glasses round eyes)
Wallabies and Wambats, Wallabies and Wambats (big and little claws)
Kangaroos, Kangaroos (jump)
Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree,
Merry, merry King of the bushes he,
Laugh Kookaburra, laugh Kookaburra,
How gay your life must be.
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Eating all the gum drops he can see
Stop, Kookaburra! Stop, Kookaburra!
Leave some there for me!
Kookabura sits on the electric wire,
Jumping up and down with his bum on fire,
Ouch! Kookaburra, Ouch! Kookaburra,
How burnt your bum must be!
I went to the Animal Fair, the birds and the bees were there.
The big baboon by the light of the moon, was combing his golden hair.
A monkey fell out of his bunk (splat), and slid down the elephants trunk (weee),
The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees,
But what became of the monkey, monkey, monkey...
Ho-hum, everybody come,
Rich man, poor man,
Money have I none.
But, I will be happy...
