Songs and Poems

Sing Along to "Once There Was a Little Duck" and "The Bird Song"


Iím A Great Big Vulture
Tune: Iím A Little Teapot

Iím a great big vulture in the sky,
Flying in a circle, oh, so high.
I just love to soar around and around.
Then down I swoop right to the ground.

*****

Little Bird: A Poem

Little bird, little bird fly about,
First fly in and then fly out.
Start down low and go up high,
Little bird, little bird, learn to fly!

*****

Swans In The Park
Tune: Rock-A-Bye Baby

Swans glide across the pond in the park,
With feathers so white and beaks that are dark.
They spread out there wings and take to the air.
The swans fly away, but I don't know where.

*****

I'm A Duck
Tune: Frere Jacques

I'm a duck, I'm a duck,
Watch me waddle, watch me waddle.
Hear me when I talk,
Hear me when I talk.
Quack, quack, quack;
quack, quack, quack.

*****

I Had A Little Rooster

I had a little rooster by the old barn gate
And that little rooster was my playmate
And that little rooster went cock-a-doodle-doo
Dee-doodley-doodley-doodley-do
(substitute other animals)

*****

Three Talking Toucans

Three talking toucans sitting in a tree
The first one turned & squawked at me!
Three little toucans sitting in a row
The second one said "I flap my wings, watch me go!"
Three little toucans sitting side by side
The third one said "my bright beak, I open wide!"

*****

Five and Five Eggs

Five and five eggs
(Hold up hands)
That makes ten
Sitting on top is mother hen
(Fold one hand over the other)
Crackle crackle crackle
(Clap hands three times)
What do I see
(Fingers around eyes)
Ten fluffy chickens
As yellow as can be
(Hold up ten fingers.)

*****

Five Little Birds - poem

Five little birds in a nest in a tree
(hold up right hand)
Are just hungry as can be
"Peep", said baby bird number one
(wiggle one finger)
Mother bird promised she would come
"Peep, Peep", said baby bird number two,
If she doesn't come what will we do?
"Peep, Peep, Peep", said baby bird number three,
I hope she can find this tree.
"Peep, Peep, Peep, Peep", said baby bird number four,
She never was so late before.
"Peep, Peep, Peep, Peep, Peep", said baby bird number five,
When will our mother bird arrive?
Well, here she comes to feed her family
(use left hand as mommy bird)
They're all as happy as can be!

*****

The Chickadee Song
(Fly your fingers away one by one as you sing this song)

Chorus:
Chickadee, chickadee, happy and gay
Chickadee, chickadee, fly away.
Five little chickadees, no room for more,
One flew away, and then there were four.
Four little chickadees, sitting in a tree,
One flew away, and then there were three.
Three little chickadees, don't know what to do,
One flew away, and then there were two.
Two little chickadees, sitting in the sun,
One flew away, then there was one.
One little chickadee, can't have any fun.
He flew away, and then there were none.

*****

Birds Fly High
Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Birds fly high and bees fly low,
Caterpillars crawl and rivers flow,
Cats meow and cows go 'moo'.
Puppies bark and babies 'coo'.
So many things to see and hear,
I use my eyes and I use my ears.

*****

Two Little Blackbirds

Two little blackbirds
Sitting on a wall;
One named Peter,
The other named Paul.
Fly away Peter!
Fly away Paul!
Come back Peter!
Come back Paul!

*****

The Sea Gull Song
Tune: Frere Jacques

I see sea gulls
I see sea gulls,
At the beach,
At the beach,
Soaring, diving, fishing,
Soaring, diving, fishing,
At the beach,
At the beach.

I hear the ocean,
I hear the ocean,
At the beach,
At the beach,
Crashing, splashing, foaming
Crashing, splashing, foaming,
At the beach,
At the beach.

*****

Five Little Ducks

Five little ducks, went out to play (hold up five fingers)
over the hills, and far away, (hold hand to eyebrows)
When the mother duck went "Quack Quack Quack"
(motion "quack" with your hand)
Four little Ducks came waddling back.
(make wings with arms and move elbows up and down)

Continue to count down until there are no little ducks then sing:
No little ducks went out to play,
Over the hills and far away,
When the mother duck went "QUACK, QUACK, QUACK,"
Five little ducks came waddling back.

*****

Six Little Ducks

Six little ducks
That I once knew
Fat ones, skinny ones,
Fair ones, too
But the one little duck
With the feather on his back
He led the others
With a quack, quack, quack
Quack, quack, quack,
Quack, quack, quack
He led the others
With a quack, quack, quack

Down to the river
They would go
Wibble, wobble, wibble, wobble,
To and fro
But the one little duck
With the feather on his back
He led the others
With a quack, quack, quack
Quack, quack, quack,
Quack, quack, quack
He led the others
With a quack, quack, quack

Back from the river
They would come
Wibble, wobble, wibble, wobble,
Ho, hum, hum
But the one little duck
With the feather on his back
He led the others
With a quack, quack, quack
Quack, quack, quack,
Quack, quack, quack
He led the others
With a quack, quack, quack!

*****

Eggs

Lots of animals come from eggs
Some with fins
And some with legs

Some that chatter
And some that cheep
Some that fly
And some that creep

Some that slither
And some that run
Some with feathers
And some with none

Animal eggs can be quite small
Or just as big as a tennis ball

The animals here
They're quite a few
Hatch from eggs
And lay them, too.

Birds Around Us
Tune: Frere Jacques

It's a parrot,
It's a parrot,
Flying by.
Flying by.
Brightly-colored feathers,
Brightly-colored feathers,
Jungle life.
Jungle life.

It's an eagle,
It's an eagle,
Swooping down.
Swooping down.
Living near the water,
Living near the water,
Search for food.
Search for food.

It's an owl,
It's an owl,
That I hear.
That I hear.
Listen for the bird call,
Listen for the bird call,
Who is near.
Who is near.
