A Turkey Named Bert

A turkey named Bert
thought he'd make up a dance
and he'd dance it
for the King and Queen

If he did a good job
and they like it a lot
They wouldn't eat him
That would be mean

He said side, close, side, close
Flap your wings and touch your toes, again
Side, close, side close,
shake your bottom and wiggle your nose.

Boogie in the closet and

Boogie woogie goblin, I can see,
Boogie woogie goblin, can't catch me.
Boogie woogie goblin, what a sight.

Eensy Weensy Spider

Down came the rain and washed the spider out;
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain;
And the eensy weensy spider went up the spout again.

Do Your Ears Hang Low?

Do your ears hang low?
Do they wobble to and fro?
Can you tie them in a knot?
Can you tie them in a bow?
Can you throw them o'er your shoulder
Like a Continental Soldier?
Do your ears hang low?

Do your ears hang high?
Do they reach up to the sky?
Do they wrinkle when they're wet?
Do they straighten when they're dry?
Can you wave them at your neighbor
With an element of flavor?
Do your ears hang high?

Do your ears hang wide?
Do they flap from side to side?
Do they wave in the breeze
From the slightest little sneeze?
Can you soar above the nation
With a feeling of elevation?
Do your ears hang wide?

Do your ears fall off
When you give a great big cough?
Do they lie there on the ground
Or bounce up at every sound?
Can you stick them in your pocket
Just like Davy Crockett?
Do your ears fall off?

Does your tongue hang down?
Does it flop all around?
Can you tie it in a knot?
Can you tie it in a bow?
Can you throw it o'er your shoulder
Like a Continental Soldier?
Does your tongue hang down?

Does your nose hang low?
Does it wiggle to and fro?
Can you tie it in a knot?
Can you tie it in a bow?
Can you throw it o'er your shoulder
Like a Continental Soldier?
Does your nose hang low?

Do your eyes pop out?
Do they bounce all about?
Can you tie them in a knot?
Can you tie them in a bow?
Can you throw them o'er your shoulder
Like a Continental Soldier?
Do your eyes pop out?

He was a great, great man.
When Americans asked who can lead them,
They say George Washington can.

Heart
Words and Music by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross

You've gotta have Heart,
All you really need is Heart,
When the odds are sayin' you'll never win,
That's when the grin should start.

You've gotta have hope,
Mustn't sit around and mope,
Nothin's half as bad as it may appear,
Wait'll next year and hope.

When your luck is battin' zero,
Get your chin up off the floor;
Mister, you can be a hero,
You can open any door,
there's nothin' to it, but to do it,

You've gotta have Heart,
Miles 'n' miles 'n' miles of Heart,
Oh, it's fine to be a genius of course,
but keep that old horse before the cart,
First you've gotta have Heart!
(Repeat)

Here Is The Beehive
Fingerplay

Here is the beehive, where are the bees?
(fist with thumb enclosed to make hive)
Hidden away where nobody sees.
(place other hand over the hive)
Watch and you'll see them come out of the hive,
(closely watch hive)
One, two, three, four, five.
(very slowly, beginning with thumb, fingers come out of hive one by one)
Bzzzzzz.....
(all fly away)

I Can See Clearly Now

I Heard Mr. Turkey Say

I heard Mr. Turkey say
"Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble".
Soon it will be Thanksgiving Day
"Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble".

People say that it's such fun
But I think that I shall run
And hide until the day is done
"Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble".

I've Got Rhythm
Words by Ira Gershwin Music by George Gershwin

Days can be sunny,
With never a sigh;
Don't need what money can buy.
Birds in the tree sing their dayful of song,
Why shouldn't we sing along?
I'm chipper all the day
Happy with my lot.
How do I get that way?

I got rhythm,
I got music,
I got good times
Who could ask for anything more?

I got daisies
in green pastures,
I got good times
Who could ask for anything more?

Old Man Trouble,
I don't mind him,
You won't find him
'Round my door.

I got starlight,
I got sweet dreams,
I got good times,
Who could ask for anything more,
Who could ask for anything more?

Monday's Cat
By Meguido Zola and David Booth

Monday's cat is full of milk.
Tuesday's cat is smooth as silk.
Wednesday's cat will roam the house.
Thursday's cat can't catch his mouse.
Friday's cat licks clean her fur.
Saturday's cat just loves to purr.
Sunday's cat will scratch his head
and yawn and stretch and stay in bed.

Monday Mornin' Blues

When you can't get it together and there's lousy weather,
you've got Monday mornin' blues.
When your dog eats your homework and the schoolbus won't work,

It's so hard to wwake up smilin' when your head is incomplete.
But your brain says, "Keep on tryin'" Get up on your feet!"

When you can't get it together and there's lousy weather,
you've got Monday mornin' blues.
When your dog eats your homework and the schoolbus won't work,
you've got Monday mornin' blues.
Monday mornin' blues.
Monday mornin' blues.

Over The River and Through the Woods



Over the river and thru the wood,
To grandfather's house we go;
The horse knows the way
To carry the sleigh,
Thru the white and drifted snow, oh!

Over the river and thru the wood,
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes,
And bites the nose,
As over the ground we go.

Over the river and thru the wood,
To have a first-rate play;
Oh, hear the bell ring,
"Ting-a-ling-ling!"
Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day-ay!

Over the river and thru the wood,
Trot fast my dapple gray!
Spring over the ground,
Like a hunting hound!
For this is Thanksgiving Day.

Take Me Out To The Ballgame
Written By: Jack Norworth & Albert Von Tilzer

Take me out
To the ball game
Take me out
With the crowd
Buy me some peanuts
And Crackerjacks
I don't care if
I never get back

'Cause it's root, root root
For the home team
If they don't win
It's a shame
For it's one, two,
Three strikes you're out
At the old ball game!

Thank You

Thank you for the world so sweet.
Thank you for the food we eat.
Thank you for the birds that sing.
Thank you for everything.

The October Moon
By Sally Albrecht

October's the time, I've heard it said,
a bright yellow moon shines over your head.
And witches and goblins hide under your bed!
It's the scary October moon.

An owl turns its head with big yellow eyes,
and wispy white ghosts fly high in the sky.
And arms on the trees above whisper and sigh.
It's the scary October moon. Oo!

there'd be no more trouble at all.

The kids on the bus say "Are we there yet?"
"I gotta go to the bathroom."
