Songs

These are songs we often sing with students. We own no rights to these songs and have just picked them up along the way. We’d love to give credit where credit is due…let us know!

 

Fall

Begin.

Begin.

Begin each day with joyful hearts.

The day ends well that joyful starts.

I wish I were a kid in the forest. 

I wish I were a kid in the forest.

If I’s a kid in the forest,

You’d hear laughter like a chorus.

Oh, I wish I were a kid in the forest.

I wish I were a kid by a stream.

I wish I were a kid by a stream.

If I’s a kid by a stream,

I would laugh and I would scream.

Oh, I wish I were a kid by a stream.

I wish I were a kid in the wood.

I wish I were a kid in the wood.

If I’s a kid in the wood,

I’d be happy, I’d be good.

Oh, I wish I were a kid in the wood.

Bear sniffed sniffed his sniffedy nose

On a blustery autumn day.

He could smell the North wind coming

So he lumbered off to say:

Hurry, hurry, scurry, scurry

We must all get fat and furry.

Not a moment to be lost, 

For I can smell old Jacky Frost.

Whisky Frisky,
Hipperty Hop,
Up he goes
To the tree top!

Whirly, twirly,
Round and round,
Down he scampers
To the ground.

Furly, curly,
What a tail,
Tall as a feather,
Broad as a sail.

Where’s his supper?
In the shell,
Snappy, cracky,
Out it fell.

 

Winter

Begin.

Begin.

Begin each day with joyful hearts.

The day ends well that joyful starts.

I wish I were a kid in the forest. 

I wish I were a kid in the forest.

If I’s a kid in the forest,

You’d hear laughter like a chorus.

Oh, I wish I were a kid in the forest.

I wish I were a kid by a stream.

I wish I were a kid by a stream.

If I’s a kid by a stream,

I would laugh and I would scream.

Oh, I wish I were a kid by a stream.

I wish I were a kid in the wood.

I wish I were a kid in the wood.

If I’s a kid in the wood,

I’d be happy, I’d be good.

Oh, I wish I were a kid in the wood.

Bear sniffed sniffed his sniffedy nose

On a blustery autumn day.

He could smell the North wind coming

So he lumbered off to say:

Hurry, hurry, scurry, scurry

We must all get fat and furry.

Not a moment to be lost, 

For I can smell old Jacky Frost.

Where are the froggies when the North winds blow?

We cannot see them in the ice and snow.

Deep, deep down in the leaves they lie.

Froggies frozen with tight closed eyes.

When the warm spring sun comes out,

Froggies thaw and hop about.

Oh, how happy they will be.

A springtime world they will see.

Spring

Begin.

Begin.

Begin each day with joyful hearts.

The day ends well that joyful starts.

I wish I were a kid in the forest. 

I wish I were a kid in the forest.

If I’s a kid in the forest,

You’d hear laughter like a chorus.

Oh, I wish I were a kid in the forest.

I wish I were a kid by a stream.

I wish I were a kid by a stream.

If I’s a kid by a stream,

I would laugh and I would scream.

Oh, I wish I were a kid by a stream.

I wish I were a kid in the wood.

I wish I were a kid in the wood.

If I’s a kid in the wood,

I’d be happy, I’d be good.

Oh, I wish I were a kid in the wood.

Where are the froggies when the North winds blow?

We cannot see them in the ice and snow.

Deep, deep down in the leaves they lie.

Froggies frozen with tight closed eyes.

When the warm spring sun comes out,

Froggies thaw and hop about.

Oh, how happy they will be.

A springtime world they will see.
