Songs

The Garden Song (”Inch by Inch”)
Have your child show you the hand signs that go with this
Refrain:
Inch by inch, row by row,
Gonna make this garden grow.
All it takes is a rake and a hoe and a piece of fertile ground.
Inch by inch, row by row,
Someone bless these seeds I sow,
Someone warm them from below
‘Til the rain comes tumblin’ down.

Pullin’ weeds, pickin’ stones,
We are made of dreams and bones.
I feel the need to grow my own ‘cause the time is near at hand.
Grain for grain,
Sun and rain,
I find my way in nature’s chain,
I tune by body and my brain to the music of the land.
(refrain)

Plant your rows straight and long,
Temper them with prayer and song.
Mother Earth will make you strong if you give her love and care.
See that crow watching hungrily
From his perch on yonder tree.
In my garden I’m as free as that feathered thief up there
(refrain)

Bonnie the Beautiful Butterfly

Bonnie the beautiful butterfly
Flies around all day.
In the night when the sun goes down
She folds her wings away.
Spiders may crawl through the forest at night.
Lightening bugs blink off and on,
But Bonnie the beautiful butterfly
Keeps her wings folded ‘til dawn.
And when the sun rose in the morning
Bonnie would wake up and yawn.
She’d fold her wings out
And flutter about
And suddenly she would be gone.

Who Has Seen the Wind?

Who has seen the wind?
Neither you nor I.
But when the leaves hang trembling,
The wind is passing by.

Who has seen the wind?
Neither I nor you.
But when the trees bow down their heads,
The wind is passing through.

Baby Beluga

Baby Beluga in the deep blue sea
You swim so wild and you swim so free.
Heaven above and the sea below
And a little white whale on the go.

Baby Beluga
Baby Beluga
Is the water warm?
Is your mama home with you so happy?

Way down yonder where the dolphins play
Where you dive and splash all day
The waves roll in and the waves roll out
See the water squirtin’ out of your spout.

Baby Beluga,
Baby Beluga,
Sing your little song,
Sing for all your friends we like to hear you.

When it’s dark and you’re home and fed
Curl up snug in your water bed
The moon is shining and the stars are out.
Good night little whale good night.

Baby Beluga,
Baby Beluga,
With tomorrow’s sun
Another day’s begun, you’ll soon be waking.

Baby Beluga in the deep blue sea;
You swim so wild and you swim so free.
Heaven above and the sea below,
And a little white whale on the go.
You’re just a little white whale on the go.

AUTUMN TO MAY

Oh once I had a little dog, his color it was brown
I taught him for to whistle, to sing and dance and run
His legs they were fourteen yards long, his ears so very wide
Around the world in half a day, upon him I could ride.

Sing tarry-o day, sing, autumn to may.

Oh once I had a little frog, he wore a vest of red
He’d lean upon his silver cane, a top hat on his head
He’d speak of far off places, of things to see and do,
Of all the kings and queens he’d met while sailing in a shoe.

Sing tarry-o day, sing, autumn to may.

Oh once I had a flock of sheep, they grazed upon a feather
I’d keep them in a music box from wind or rainy weather
And every day the sun would shine, they’d fly all through the town
To bring me back some golden rings, candy by the pound.

Sing tarry-o day, sing, autumn to may.

Oh once I had a downey swan, she was so very frail
She sat upon an oyster shell and hatched me out a snail
The snail had changed into a bird, the bird to butterfly
And he who tells a bigger tale would have to tell a lie.

Sing tarry-o day, sing, autumn to may.
