I Have a Little Turtle
I have a little turtle
His name is Tiny Tim
I put him in the bathtub
To see if he could swim
He drank up all the water
He gobbled up the soap
And when he tried to talk
He had a bubble in his throat
Oh, bubble, bubble, bubble
Bubble, bubble, POP!
Bubble, bubble, bubble
Bubble, bubble, POP!

Apple Basket

The first apple in the basket was bright and shiny red
The second apply in the basket said, "My what a cozy bed!"

The third apple in the basket said, "Make room for me, you pair!"
The fourth apple in the basket said, "Please move over there!"

The fifth apple in the basket said, "Oh dear, oh me, oh my
This basket looks like a pastry--I think we're in a pie!"

Songs

Autumn Leaves
(tune: Have you ever seen a Lassie?)

Autumn leaves are hanging, are hanging, are hanging
Autumn leaves are hanging, are hanging today.

Autumn leaves turn colors, turn colors, turn colors
Autumn leaves turn colors, turn colors today

Autumn leaves are blown down, blown down, blown down
Autumn leaves are blown down, blown down today.

Autumn leaves are dancing, are dancing, are dancing
Autumn leaves are dancing, are dancing today.

Autumn leaves get raked up, get raked up, get raked up
Autumn leaves get raked up, get raked up today.

Autumn leaves get jumped in, get jumped in, get jumped in
Autumn leaves get jumped in, get jumped in today.

Scarecrow, Scarecrow
Scarecrow, scarecrow turn around
Scarecrow, scarecrow touch the ground
Dance on your toes
Touch your nose
Reach up high
Touch the sky
Bend down low
Touch your toe
Jump up now
Take a bow
Stomp your feet
Take a seat.
