Songs For Kids Age 1 to 101 Lyrics 

1. Hotdogs and Cookies  

 

I like my hotdogs hot (with ketchup!)

I like my hotdogs hot (and mustard!)

‘Cause if they were cold 

they would be cold dogs

And nobody likes those 

except for my dog, Spot

 

I like my cookies cooked (well mostly)

I like my cookies cooked (Sometimes I eat the dough)

‘Cause if they were raw they would be 

un-cookies and that’s why you cook them like in the cook book

 

I like my ice cream iced (chocolate!) 

I like my ice cream creamed (in a cone!)

‘Cause if it wasn’t iced and if it wasn’t creamed then I’d rather eat a bowl of chicken rice

 

I like my oranges orange (and juicy!) I like my oranges orange (and yummy!)

‘Cause if they were blue then I don’t know what I’d do If we called a blue fruit an orange? Weird.

 

All of these things I like to eat 

And I’m glad they’re the way they are

They’re delicious and nutritious

That’s why I’m playing this song on the guitar

I like my french fries fried (more ketchup!)And I like my french fries French (pourquoi?)

‘Cause if they were not, they would be English and that doesn’t really make any sense.

 

I like my squash squashed (with turkey)

I like my squash squished squashed 

(at thanksgiving!)

‘Cause if it wasn’t squashed it would be chunky so why would you call it squash, Josh?

 

I like my mushrooms mushed...

Oh wait a second, no

I don’t think mushrooms were meant to be mushed. What do you think? 

What else? What about popcorn? 

Do you like popcorn?

 

I like my pop corn popped (with butter!)

I like my pop corn popped (at the movies!)

‘Cause if it wasn’t popped it would be kernels and when you tried to chew it would be like eating rocks

 

All of these things I like to eat 

And I’m glad they’re the way they are

They’re delicious and nutritious

That’s why I’m playing this song on the guitar

All of these things I like to eat 

And I’m glad they’re the way they are

I hope you all agree, Now please excuse me

I’m headed for the cookie jar

2. Garbage Day

 

The garbage truck comes to our driveway

on garbage day

To take all the stinky smelly stuff 

we don’t want away

Sometimes I have to take it out 

before I go and play

On garbage day

 

The garbage can smells really gross

Banana peels and moldy toast

Rotten pork chop leftovers and eggs

Sometimes I have to plug my nose

Thank goodness garbage men are pro’s

On garbage day

 

But wait...

What’s this piece of cake doing here?

It still seems good to me

Right between the kitty litter and old socks

I shouldn’t let it go to waste

I’ll give it just a little taste

Hope my mommy doesn’t see!

 

The garbage truck comes to our driveway

on garbage day

To take all the stinky smelly stuff 

we don’t want away

Sometimes I have to take it out 

before I go and play

On garbage day

 

On garbage day

And I don’t recommend eating cake

From the garbage can for goodness sake.

 

I don’t feel so good!

 

 

 

3. Fat Cat 

 

Hey cat, why are you so fat?

You just lie around all day

Hey cat, you’re really kind of cute

But you should go outside today

 

You just eat cat food, poop in the litter box

Sleep in the laundry hamper

Curl up on the blankets, snooze in the sofa

You should get off your kitty butt and Scamper!

 

Hey cat, why are you so fat?

You just lie around all day

Hey cat, you’re really kind of cute

But you should go outside today

 

I pet you on your head and you purr

I brush you on your back and you meow

Your fur is so soft and fluffy

But why do you look so big and puffy?

Hey cat, fat cat, fat cat, fat cat

Hey fat kitty cat

Stop scratching at that!

Get down and scat!

Why don’t you go chase a rat?

 

Hey cat, why are you so fat?

You just lie around all day

Hey cat, you’re really kind of cute

But you should go outside today

 

Meow meow meow meow...

 

Hey cat, why are you so fat?

You just lie around all day

Hey cat, you’re really kind of cute

But you should go outside today

Hey cat, why are you so fat?
You just lie around all day

Well, hey cat, here’s a kitty treat

‘Cause I love you anyway

4. Twinkle Twinkle Black Sheep   

 

Twinkle twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are

Up above the world so high 

Like a diamond in the sky

Twinkle twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are

 

Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?

Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full

One for the master and one for the dame

And one for the little boy 

who lives down the lane

Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?

Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full

 

Twinkle twinkle have you any wool?

How I wonder three bags full

Up above the world for the dame

Like a diamond who lives down the lane

Baa baa black sheep little star

Yes sir, yes sir what you are!

 

A, B, C, D, E, F, G

H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P

Q, R, S, T, U, V

W, X, Y and Z

Now I know my ABC’s

Next time won’t you sing with me?

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13

14, 15, 16, 17         18, 19, and 20

Now I can count to 20          

Next time won’t you count with me?

         

Twinkle twinkle little black sheep

Red riding hood and little Bo Peep

Q, R, S, T, U, V

18, 19, and 20

Baa, baa little star, jump the fence

This song is just pure nonsense!

5. Pat The Platypus

 

Pat the platypus

He is not a wuss

He is very dangerous

So don’t pat Pat the platypus

 

Have you ever seen a platypus?

They live in Australia

Pat is a funny looking thing

Full of paraphernalia

 

He’s got sharp claws

Has venom like a snake

He can even shock you for goodness sake

So don’t pat Pat the platypus

 

Pat’s so very proud

He’s a unique animal second to none

Yeah! He’s kind of part beaver, duck, 

eel, snake and otter

And a bunch cool of animals 

all rolled into one

 

He’s Pat the platypus

He is not a wuss

He is very dangerous

So don’t pat Pat the platypus

 

Have you ever seen a platypus?

They’re mammals like no other

Pat has fur that’s waterproof

And has a duck-bill just like rubber

 

He has a tail like a beaver

and he has webbed feet

And he swims like an otter in water

So don’t pat Pat the platypus

 

Pat’s so very proud

He’s a unique animal second to none

Yeah! He’s kind of part beaver, duck, 

eel, snake and otter

And a bunch cool of animals 

all rolled into one

 

He’s Pat the platypus

He is not a wuss

He is very dangerous

So don’t pat Pat the platypus

 

Oh... don’t,  pat,  Pat,  the platypus

Oh... don’t, pat, Pat, the plata - pooos!

 

6. It’s Fun To Read

 

It’s always fun to read a story

There’s lots of things to imagine and see

It’s always great to learn about stuff

There’s so much to know 

it’s hard to get enough

 

If you want to read, it makes you smart

Just pick up a book and you can always start

If you don’t know how, don’t worry just yet

You can learn in school and It’ll be no sweat

 

It’s fun to read, read, read, read

It’s fun to read

It’s fun to read, read, read, read

It’s fun to read

 

When you read, you don’t see

Videos like on computer or TV

You use more of your imagination

Just pretend you’re on the moon 

at a space station

 

You can read about horses or cars

Other countries and even dinosaurs

How to play hockey 

or bake with chocolate chips

Trains and planes and even pirate ships

 

It’s fun to read, read, read, read, read

It’s fun to read

It’s fun to flip, flip, flip, flip, flip

Flip through the pages

It’s fun to look, look, look, look, look

Look in a book

It’s fun to read, read, read, read, read

It’s fun to read!

 

And you can read about rocks and plants

Monkeys in the jungle, turtles and ants

The Sahara desert or Niagra Falls

Sailing ‘round the world or throwing baseballs

Platypuses, cats or whales in the sea

Or stories about people like you and me

 

It’s fun to read, read, read, read, read

It’s fun to read

It’s fun to flip, flip, flip, flip, flip

Flip through the pages

It’s fun to look, look, look, look, look

Look in a book

It’s fun to read, read, read, read, read

It’s fun to read!

It’s fun to read, read, read, read, read

It’s fun to read

It’s fun to flip, flip, flip, flip, flip

Flip through the pages

It’s fun to look, look, look, look, look

Look in a book

It’s fun to read, read, read, read, read

It’s fun to read!

 

 

 

7. Let’s Go to the Beach!

 

There will be waves and sun

It will be lots of fun

When we go to the beach

When we go to the beach!

We’ll jump and dash, swim and splash

When we go to the beach

When we go to the beach!

 

Oh... Let’s go to the beach

Let’s go to the beach!

 

Our friends will be there

Sand castles everywhere

When we go to the beach

When we go to the beach!

Seashells up for grabs

We’ll find rocks and crabs

When we go to the beach

When we go to the beach!

 

Oh... Let’s go to the beach

Let’s go to the beach!

 

We’ll dig in the sand, and we’ll get tanned

When we go to the beach

When we go to the beach!

Waves and sun, it’s beautiful at the beach

Bring you bucket & shovel, swimsuit & towel

Just don’t forget your sunscreen!

 

Oh... Let’s go to the beach

Let’s go to the beach!

 

And a sunny day...

A sunny day is all you need!

 

 

 

8. The Pirates From Yarmouth

 

I’ll tell ye a story that I’ve been told

About some pirates to behold

Their ship sails over the Atlantic

The waves are rough but they don’t get seasick

 

The shores of Nova Scotia is where they roam

The town of Yarmouth is their home

 

The pirates from Yarmouth say YAR!  (YAR!)

The pirates from Yarmouth say YAR!  (YAR!)

With yer mouth, say YAR!

Like the pirates from Yarmouth!

They haven’t found all the treasure yet

The captain has a parrot for a pet

They use telescopes to look over the sea

They sail all around 

the true north strong and free

 

The other pirate ships have all sank

They made the bad guys walk the plank

They polish their cannons 

and tie up their rope

They smell really bad 

‘cause they rarely use soap

 

The pirates from Yarmouth say YAR!  (YAR!)

The pirates from Yarmouth say YAR!  (YAR!)

With yer mouth, say YAR!

Like the pirates from Yarmouth!

 

They like to have a grand old time

They like to sing songs that rhyme, like...

Swing yer partner round and round!

Dance on the deck but don’t fall down!

Lower the anchor and paddle to shore!

Go into town and sing some more!

 

You might think that “YAR” is gobbledygook

But what else can you say when your 

leg is a peg and your hand is a hook?

 

The pirates from Yarmouth say YAR!  (YAR!)

The pirates from Yarmouth say YAR!  (YAR!)

With yer mouth, say YAR!

Like the pirates from Yarmouth!

The pirates from Yarmouth say YAR!  (YAR!)

The pirates from Yarmouth say YAR!  (YAR!)

With yer mouth, say YAR!

Like the pirates from Yarmouth!

 

They stroke their beards 

and tip their hats 

and say YAR matey!

9. Firefly 

 

Oh firefly in the sky

You flew by and caught my eye

Little bug with a blinking bum

Blink-blink!

You are glowing oh, so bright

In the field of grass tonight

Your behind is a little light

Little firefly

Blink-blink!

 

I see you there, from afar

A funny bug is what you are

Perhaps I’ll catch you in a jar

Little firefly

 

I’ll put you right beside my bed

Turn out the lights and lay my head

And watch you blink and name you Ned

Little firefly

Blink-blink! ...blink!

 

In the morning you won’t glow

So in the grass, I’ll let you go

And where you’ll go I, won’t know

And then I’ll say goodbye 

My little firefly

 

Oh firefly in the sky

You flew by and caught my eye

Little bug with a blinking bum

Blink-blink!

You are glowing oh, so bright

In the field of grass tonight

Your behind is a little light

Little firefly

Little firefly

Little firefly...  Blink! 

 

10. Canada  

 

Canada

A big country in the northwest

The United States is right below

And oceans flow around the rest

 

In Newfoundland and Labrador

Prince Edward Island

Nova Scotia, New Brunswick

Quebec and Ontario, they’re smilin’

Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta 

And British Columbia to boot

Yukon, Northwest Territories

And Nunavut

 

Canada

Our home and native land

The red maple leaf is on the flag

Oh Canada is grand!

 

 

11. Monkeys!   

 

Hanging upside down, acting like a clown

It’s so funny when the monkeys come to town

Swinging around from tree to tree

And they are all acting a little bit like me

 

I’m a monkey!  ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah!

I’m a monkey!  ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah!

 

Eating bananas and playing in the sun

Big ones, little ones 

and a teeny tiny ba-by one!

Some monkeys even like 

to have cookies and tea

And they are all acting 

a little bit like you and me

 

I’m a monkey!  ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah!

I’m a monkey!  ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah!

 

Monkeys have long tails

They’re a lot smaller than whales

They like to pick things up with thier toes 

And they like to pick their nose!

With their toes? (Well, sometimes) Gross!

 

Monkeys like to play

they hang on ropes all day

And they like to jump up and down

And they like to make some 

really funny monkey sounds

Can you make a monkey sound?

 

I’m a monkey!  ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah!

I’m a monkey!  ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah!

You’re a monkey!  ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah!

You’re a monkey!  ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah!

 

Monkeys! 

Monkeys! 

Monkeys! 

Monkeys!

 

12. Kyle

So lets sing for a little while

And be as happy as can be

Mom Dad and little Kyle

Pizza in the playground, pizza in the treehouse

Pizza in the bathtub, and pizza in bed

Pizza on his bicycle, pizza on the toilet

Pizza upside down, standing on his head

 

Cheese and tomatoes, red and green peppers

Chicken and olives and pepperoni 

Ham and pineapple, hamburg mushrooms

And add some more tomato sauce

Teeny tiny turtle

Teeny tiny turtle!

Teeny tiny turtle

Tiny animal in a little green shell

Walks really slow but he swims very well

Teeny tiny turtle

Sticks his little neck out long

And he starts singing a little turtle song

Teeny tiny turtle!

 

Sits on a log with a tiny guitar

And you can hear him rockin’ really hard

All the teeny tiny fishes and teeny ting frogs

Start rockin’ out to his music in the bog

And all the little birdies dance in the sand

To the teeny tiny turtle’s rock ‘n’ roll band!

15. Squirmy Worm

 

Getting dressed in the morning

little squirmy worm

Eating your breakfast

Playing with your toys 

like a wiggly inch worm

Splashing in the bathtub

little squirmy worm

My baby is a little squirmy worm

Squirmy worm, oh little one

16. The Solar System

 

The solar system goes ‘round and ‘round

The solar system goes ‘round and ‘round

 

It’s called the solar system 

‘cause the SUN is in the middle 

The Sun is a big giant ball of fire 

but from here it actually looks quite little

And It is really a star, but it is just not as far

And 8 planets orbit happily around it

 

The closest planet to the Sun, is MERCURY

It’s the smallest one

It gets too cold and way too hot 

and it looks like little grey dot

The next planet is VENUS 

and you don’t have to be a genius

To find it in the sky at night 

because it’s just so bright

 

The solar system goes ‘round and ‘round

The solar system goes ‘round and ‘round

 

EARTH is the 3rd planet

You and me are on it

It’s the only one that has people

animals, plants and life

It takes one year to go around the sun 

and in one spin one day is done

Earth is the very best planet 

because it is our home

 

The Moon goes around the Earth

You can see it day and night

And sometimes it shines bright 

just because it reflects sunlight

The 4th planet is MARS

It looks like a red spec within in the stars

It’s got volcanoes and valleys 

and even has some ice

There’s probably no Martians there 

because there is not very much air

But if little green people did live there

I’m sure they would be nice

 

The solar system goes ‘round and ‘round

The solar system goes ‘round and ‘round

 

JUPITER’s the 5th planet 

and it’s by far the biggest

It’s got giant storms on it and 67 moons!

The 6th planet is SATURN

It’s the one with the big rings

The 7th one is URANUS and it looks solid blue

And so does the 8th one. It is called NEPTUNE

 

Then there is PLUTO (It’s a dwarf planet)

It’s the farthest thing we’ve sung about 

But it’s not over yet... 

Beyond our solar system there are trillions of more stars and other solar systems! 

Do you think there are ones like ours? 

 

The solar system goes ‘round and ‘round

The solar system goes ‘round and ‘round

The solar system goes ‘round and ‘round

The solar system goes ‘round and ‘round

 

17. Hockey

 

Watching hockey on TV

I’m cheering for my favorite teams

Flames and Habs on CBC

Canucks, Jets, Oilers, Sens and Leafs

 

You should have a great goalie

‘Cause guys like Gretzky and Crosby

Can dance that puck around your feet

And when they score it’s really sweet

 

I like playoffs of hockey

But one thing I don’t like to see

Is fighting like they are babies 

Good thing they have penalties

 

Faceoffs are a thing to see

The puck’s dropped by the referee

And there’s a cup from Lord Stanley

For one team each year in hockey

 

 

18. I Make Music 

 

I make my music with whatever I can find

I make my music with instruments of any kind

Even if all I have is a spoon and pan

I make my music with whatever I can

 

There’s guitar, bass and drums

And you can use anything else 

for an instrument

Like a wooden spoon and a pan 

Can you hear it? Let’s go!

 

I make my music with whatever I can find

I make my music with instruments of any kind

Even if all I have is a spoon and pan

I make my music with whatever I can

 

Harmonica

Shaker

Banjo

Spoons

Kazoo

Tambourine

Clarinet

Jug

Trombone

Violin

Piano

Jews harp

Cardboard

Keys

Nose whistle

Lego!

 

Now our voices!

La la la... do do do... brrp brrp brrp...

Can you whistle? ...

Scadoopboop diddleyscoop adoopatydoota

dascoopadoopadoopa ready? Let’s go!

 

I make my music with whatever I can find

I make my music with instruments of any kind

Even if all I have is a spoon and pan

I make my music with whatever I can

I make my music with whatever I can find

I make my music with instruments of any kind

Even if all I have is a spoon and pan

I make my music with whatever I can

 

I make my music 

‘Cause I’m Matt the Music Man!

 

19. Try 

 

If you know what makes you happy

And if you are up to the test

If you can believe it, you can achieve it 

If you give it your best

 

Don’t you ever ever let anybody 

Tell you what you can’t do

If you know it’s the right thing for you 

You can see it through, so

 

Try, just try

And do the best you can do

Because you can do almost anything

You put your mind to

 

If you want to play music 

On the piano or the guitar

If you want to be a doctor

A scientist or a hockey star

 

Don’t you let the little things get you down

Keep your head up high

You will learn from every mistake 

If you just continue to...

 

Try, just try

And do the best you can do

Because you can do almost anything

You put your mind to

If you really really want to do something 

Keep your eyes open wide

And If you fail you should still be proud

Because at least you tried      

 

Try, just try

And do the best you can do

Try, just try

And do the best you can do

Because you can do almost anything

Oh, you can do almost anything

Oh, you can do almost anything

You put your mind to

 

 

20. Time To Sleep

 

It’s time to go to sleep

We won’t make a peep

It’s time to close your eyes

Sweet dreams until sunrise

 

It’s time to go to sleep

We’ll start counting sheep

And sleep your worries all away

And dream your worries all away
