BONZO’S FLY SONG

There was a little fly flew into a grocers store,
and he * upon the ceiling and he * upon the floor.
He *upon the bacon and he * upon the ham
and he *on the head of the little grocer man.

So the little grocer man said before this day is done,
I’ll get my spray and I’ll stop that wee fly’s fun.
But before the grocer man could count from one to ten,
the fly flew in the door and he * on him again.

Now the little grocer man and his little grocer wife
Said we’re going to get that fly back if it takes us all our life
So they got themselves some dynamite and hid
inside the store
Then they blew the shop to pieces
As the fly flew out the door

So the grocer went out shopping and he bought himself some things
Glue and sticks and feathers and he made himself some wings
He found the tallest building and he jumped into the sky
He flew down like a bomber and he * upon the fly!

And his great big monkey arms
That’s where all my money goes…

Down through the chimney with lots of toys
All for the little ones; Christmas joys

Give her a dolly that laughs and cries
One that will open and shut her eyes

READY STEADY TEDDY

There is a very special friend you love to hold so tight
A pal for all occasions who’ll keep you safe at night
They’ve two round ears, a button nose
For snuggles they are ready
Your very favourite cuddly toy?
You’ve guessed it…It’s a teddy!

CHORUS – Here come the cuddly teddy bears
The soft and fuzzy teddy bears
See them walking round and round
Their furry feet don’t make a sound
Ready, steady, teddy
The cuddly teddy bears
Ready, steady, teddy
The cuddly teddy bears

Now bears are always hungry
They really like to eat
Some love tea and sandwiches
And picnics are a treat
But there’s one thing that all bears love
It’s sticky and it’s runny
It’s made by busy bumble bees?
You’ve guessed it…they love honey!

CHORUS

To find our next companion
To the Arctic we must go
They hang around on icebergs
And play around in snow
They’ve got a big black shiny nose
They really are quite rare
With fur that’s white and soft as clouds
You’ve guessed it…it’s a polar bear!

CHORUS

HUSHABYE LULLABY

Rest your eyes, rest your eyes
You’ve had a busy day
Say night night, say night night
It’s time to drift away
We’ll take a trip to dreamland
Where wishes can come true
On cotton clouds and snuggle downs
We’ll snooze the whole night through

So close your eyes, close your eyes
You’ve had a busy day
You’ll sleep tight, you’ll sleep tight
It’s time to drift away
We’re heading off to snooze town
To join the sleepy crew
So rest your head, we’re off to bed
Where sweet dreams wait for you

So shut your eyes, shut your eyes
You’ve had a busy day
Hushabye, hushabye
It’s time to drift away
Hushabye, hushabye
It’s time to drift away
Hushabye, hushabye
It’s time to drift away

THE FREEZE

When I was just a baby I’d get a runny nose
My Mama said you better go put on your winter clothes
There’s something that you better do before you start to sneeze
So get on up, and shake it down or else you’re gonna freeze

Clap your hands…clap your hands

Come on clap your hands….Clap your hands

Clap your hands, clap your hands
Keep those fingers warm
Hands, clap your hands
And you can’t go wrong
Clap, clap your hands
It’s what I’m telling you
Clap, clap your hands
It’s what you have to do
Now freeze…….I said now freeze!

Your hands are nice and toasty, fingers feeling warm
You’re crunching through the frosty snow but something else is wrong
Your feet they start to shiver and you think that they have froze
Your shoes they feel like blocks of ice. It’s time to work those those toes

Stamp your feet, stamp your feet
Keep those tootsies warm
Feet, stamp your feet
And you won’t go wrong
Stamp, stamp your feet
It’s what I’m telling you
Stamp, stamp your feet
It’s all you have to do
Now freeze……now freeze

So if you’re going sledging, making angels in the snow
You’re face begins to tingle and your cheeks are all aglow
You gotta get hot to be real cool and stay out all day long
Get movin’ and a groovin’ and listen to my song

Jump around, jump around
Keep your body warm
Jump, jump
If you’re cold you got it wrong
Jump, jump around
It’s what I’m telling you
Jump, jump around
It’s all you have to do
Now freeze……I said now freeze

Now Clap……
Now Stamp…..
Now Jump…
Say yeah…
Yeah…
yeah….
YEAH!!!!….

Clap, stamp and jump
You’re gonna get so warm
Clap, stamp and jump
And you can’t go wrong
Clap, stamp and jump
Now hear me telling you
Clap, stamp and jump
It’s what you have to do
.
Clap, stamp and jump
You’re gonna get so warm
Clap, stamp and jump
And you can’t go wrong
Clap, stamp and jump
Now hear me telling you
Clap, stamp and jump
Staying warm’s the thing to do.

Don’t freeze!

PENGUIN HOLIDAY

We all love to plan a trip
Our special getaway
Leave your worries all behind
And book a holiday
There are holiday makers
Planning their vacation
Love to choose a chilly place
As their favourite destination

Hoorah, hoorah. It’s the penguin holiday
Hoorah hoorah! It’s good to get away
It’s time to all go coconuts
And hear Calypso play
You’ve got your factor 50
It’s the penguin Holiday
La la la la la la la
It’s the penguin holiday

They remembered all of their passports
And booked their tickets too
They’ve travelled half way round the world
And they’ll sleep in an igloo
Some they go for a swim
Some for relaxation
Chose this very chilly place
It’s their favourite destination

Chorus

They’ve studied all the guide books
I hear the fish is nice
And try the local cocktails
I’m sure they come with ice
Don’t forget the postcards
Send to your relations
From this very chilly place
It’s their favourite destination

Chorus

A WONDERLAND OF SNOW

CHORUS
A wonderland, a wonderland
of snow, snow, snow
A great big Christmas wonderland
Let’s go, go, go
A billion stars that you can see
They glow, glow, glow
So shine a light
Light up the night
In our wonderland of snow

Santa’s working night and day – at the North Pole
He’s making toys so we can play – at the North Pole
Mrs Claus made mince pies and just before they froze
Rudolph stuck his nose in them and that is why it glows

CHORUS

The seals are very silly – at the North Pole
And walruses are chilly – at the North Pole
A polar bear was skating and having so much fun
But he slipped and and took a tumble and he landed on his…tummy

CHORUS

It’s like a giant freezer – at the North Pole
The food is really beezer – at the North Pole
It’s fish fingers for supper, the best I’ve ever had
And if you fancy pudding, the ice cream is snow bad

CHORUS

UNDERWATER ADVENTURE

CHORUS
Hold your nose – Hold your nose
Take a deep breath – deep breath
We’re swimming for adventure
As we journey to new depths
Let’s cause a commotion down in the ocean
So close your eyes and count to three – 1-2-3
As we swim, swim, swim – to the bottom of the sea

Verse 1
You’re sure to see amazing things
and sights beyond belief
There’s sharks and whales and tiny fish
that hide in coral reef
You’ll meet new friends, anemones
Find shells, maybe a sponge
You can use it when it’s bath time
So come on take the plunge

Verse 2
You won’t need floats or armbands
Or fancy scuba gear
We’re tucked up on the sea bed
And the water’s crystal clear
We might find a shipwreck
Or go exploring caves
And find out why the seaweed
As we slip beneath the waves

Verse 3
Lets all be deep sea divers
There’s so much we can do
Seek out giant inky squid
Or an Octopus that’s blue
There’s great big stingy jellyfish
And things with claws and teeth
But don’t go pulling mussels
As we see what lies beneath

HIGHLAND FLING

CHORUS
Say hoots mon – hoots mon
It’s time to head away
Yeee hooch – yeee hooch
We’ll tak a scots wha hae
We’ll have a hootenanny, we’ll dance and laugh and sing
Cos we’re making a Highland, doing a Highland, having a Highland Fling

We’re head to toe in tartan
For hills we have to walk
We may be hunting haggis
or monsters in a loch
So join us for our shindig
Among the blooming heather
There’s one thing we can’t guarantee
And that’s the Scottish weather

We’ll climb up hills and mountains
And take in all the views
We may meet local wildlife
Like stags and heilan coos
We’re going to a ceilidh
It’s time to kick those heals
We’ll dance until we’re dizzy
With lots of jigs and reels

We’ll try our luck at highland games
with cabers we can toss
Even try a tug of war
We’ll show them who’s the boss
We’ll seek out ancient castles
Explore by candlelight
We’ll tell each other ghostly tales
And give ourselves a fright

I LOVE A CUP OF TEA

There is a certain beverage
That seems to hit the spot
You fill your favourite mug up
And drink it when it’s hot
Some like it weak and milky
While others like it strong
It is our nation’s favourite drink
And I drink it all day long…

CHORUS
Tea, tea I love a cup of tea
When I get up in the morning
It’s the drink that pleases me
Tea, tea I love a cup of tea
Stir the cup, drink it up
I love a cup of tea
Oh – stop the bus I need a wee wee
A wee, wee cup of tea

There are so many different ways
To make your favourite brew
Some like milk and sugar
Would you like one lump or two?
Some add a slice of lemon
To a fine bone china cup
And sip it holding saucers
With their pinkies sticking up…

CHORUS

You can have a cup at bedtime
Or with a slice of cake
You can dunk your biscuit in it
When it’s time to take a break
It’s great with scones and clotted cream
Or some lovely buttered toast
But I just have it on its own
It’s the drink I love the most…

CHORUS

There’s loads of different kinds you know
Assam, Ceylon, Earl Grey
Darjeeling, Lapsang Chouchong
We could be here all day
Just grab your favourite teabag
And bung it in the pot
Pour on boiling water
But be careful cos it’s hot…

WHEN THE BOAT COMES IN 

When you are a youngster, you must sing and play
Paddle in the rock pools finding things all day
Build yourself a castle till the tide rolls in
Washes it away and start it all again

Dance to your Daddy, sing to your Mammy
Dance to your Daddy, to your Mammy sing
You shall have a fishy on a little dishy
You shall have a fishy when the boat comes in

You might find this fishy in a shallow pool
It has got five legs, they’re really rather cool
Not like normal fish, really quite bizarre
Really brightly coloured, shaped just like a star

You shall have a fishy on a little dishy
You shall have a Starfish when the boat comes in…
Dance to your Daddy, sing to your Mammy
Dance to your Daddy, to your Mammy sing
You shall have a fishy on a little dishy
You shall have a fishy when the boat comes in

What’s the trawler landed on it’s latest trip
It’s a kind of shell fish and it’s claws they nip
It can swish about with the tail it’s got
If you want to get one, catch it in a pot

You shall have a fishy on a little dishy
You shall have a lobster when boat comes in….
Dance to your Daddy, sing to your Mammy
Dance to your Daddy, to your Mammy sing
You shall have a fishy on a little dishy
You shall have a fishy when the boat comes in

This fish is amazing, strangest you will see
You will find them hiding in the deep blue sea
They have got a beak, they can squirt black ink
Really very smart, eight tentacles I think

You shall have a fishy on a little dishy
You shall have an octopus when boat comes in….
Dance to your Daddy, sing to your Mammy
Dance to your Daddy, to your Mammy sing
You shall have a fishy on a little dishy
You shall have a fishy when the boat comes in

Dance to your Daddy, sing to your Mammy
Dance to your Daddy, to your Mammy sing
You shall have a fishy on a little dishy
You shall have a fishy when the boat comes in

SURF’S UP!

Shake the sand from your toes
Grab all our boards
Cos everyone knows surf’s up (Surf’s up!)
We’re radical dudes
With bad attitudes
But we’re all the groove, cos surf’s up (Surf’s up!)
You can turtle roll or duck dive
Paddle out and up you pop
You shout ‘cowabunga’, and make the drop (Shout ‘cowabunga’ and make the drop)

CHORUS

Ahhhh x 4
Surfin’, everybody here’s gone surfing
Ooooh ooh oooh
Riding the waves, riding the waves, riding waves
Surfin’, everybody here loves surfing
Riding, riding, riding, riding, riding the waves
Surf’s up!

Life is a beach
The outback’s in reach
The seagulls all screech ‘Surf’s up!’ (Surf’s up!)
Kick out your board
There’s more to explore
Wave bye-bye to the shore, cos surf’s up (Surf’s up!)
But you feel somethin’ gnarly
And you know what that’s about
You’re gonna have to bail before you ‘Wipe out!’ (You’re gonna have to bail before you wipe out)

CHORUS

Hit that wave with a crash
A ding and a bash
You made a big splash, surf’s up (Surf’s up!)
Well you’re under the sea
Where the fishes swim free
But you’d rather be saying ‘surf’s up’ (Surf’s up!)
Swim back to the shore and we’ll do it all again
Work those noodle arms cos we’re gonna hang ten (Work those noodle arms cos we’re gonna hang ten)

CHORUS x 2

SWIMMING IN THE SWIMMING POOL

Swimming, swimming, in the swimming pool
Hot days, cold days, in the swimming pool
Breast stroke, side stroke, fancy diving too
Isn’t it so lovely having nothing else to do

Now put all the words back but do it double speed!

TATTIE SOUP




I choked upon a tattie, a tattie, I choked upon a tattie
A plate o tattie, plate o tattie, plate o tattie soup

I shouted for ma Mammy, Ma mammy, I shouted for ma mammy

THE MIDGIES ARE COMING

Chorus
The Midgies are coming Oh no, Oh no!
The Midgies are coming Oh no, Oh no!
The Midgies are coming to bite you and bug you
The Midgies are coming Oh no, Oh no!

Verses:
There is a beastie I know, I know,
A fearsome wee beastie I know, I know
That terrifies the people of Scotland
I wish they would leave us alone, alone

These nasty wee blighters they swarm, they swarm
They come out to bite when its wet or warm
You swipe them and swat them and then run away
I wish they would leave us alone, alone

These pests they can ruin a hike, a hike
Or when you are riding your bike, your bike
No lotions or potions can keep them away
I wish they would leave me alone, alone

THE LADDIE WHO WENT TO SEA

There once was a laddie who went to the sea
(Oh no, went to the sea)
He said to his mummy he’d be back for tea
(Oh no, be back for tea)

A day at the beach is just what he needs
To go for a paddle, that was his wish
He took off his socks, went past the seaweeds
Dipped in his toe, and along came some fish

The hungry wee fishes they nibbled his toes
(Oh no, nibbled his toes)
One of them jumped out and munched on his nose
(Oh no, munched on his nose)
Nibbled his toes, munched on his nose – those hungry wee fishes they nibbled his toes

Straight back to the shore to save his poor feet
And something else that he could try
A yummy dessert is the perfect wee treat
But then he looked up to the skies….uh oh bird is the word!

The seagulls dive-bombed him and stole his ice cream
(Oh no, stole his ice cream)
He was so ragin’ he started to scream
(Oh no, started to scream)
Stole his ice cream, started to scream – those seagulls dive-bombed him and stole his ice cream

He needed something to cool him off quick
So back to the sea for a lark
He splashed and he splashed and he did a frog-kick
When who should appear but a great big shark!

Our poor wee laddie was chased by a shark
(Oh no, chased by a shark)
Ran back to his mammy before it got dark
(Oh no, before it got dark)
If this tale of the sea fills you with dread
(Oh no, fills you with dread)
Maybe you should just stay in bed
(Oh no, stay in bed)
Fills you with dread, stay in bed – maybe you should just stay in bed.

ANIMAL MAGIC

Chorus

So monkeys go bananas
Oooh ooh ah ah ah
Elephants blow your trunks
Ooompah oompah pah
Caterpillars wiggle
Worms they like to wriggle
Hyenas like to giggle
Ha ha ha ha ha
Oooh ah ah
Ooompah pah
Ha ha ha ha ha

Who likes howling at the moon and has four giant paws?
Wolves like howling at the moon and have four giant paws
And who likes walking sideways and nips you with his claws?
A crab likes walking sideways and nips you with his claws
From below the ground
To the tops of the trees
From high in the sky
To the deep blue sea
There’s a magic world of animals for everyone to see
There’s a magic world of animals for everyone to see

Who travels through the desert with a hump upon his back?
Camels travel through the desert with a hump upon their back
Who paddles down the river and gives a little quack?
Ducks paddle down the river and give a little quack
From below the ground
To the tops of the trees
From high in the sky
To the deep blue sea
There’s a magic world of animals for everyone to see
There’s a magic world of animals for everyone to see
