Mr. Gumpy's Outing by John Burningham

I Saw A Giraffe Drive By
One day, I saw a giraffe drive by,
In a shiny car with a big bow tie.
I saw a sheep driving a jeep!
I saw a duck driving a truck!
I saw a goat sitting in a boat!
I saw a bear flying through the air;
He was parachuting through the sky!
What a lot of funny animals went by!

Twinkle Twinkle Traffic Light
(Tune of: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)
Twinkle, twinkle traffic light,
Standing at the corner bright,
When it's green it's time to go,
When it's red, you stop you know,
Twinkle, twinkle traffic light,
Standing at the corner bright.

Wheels on the Train
(Tune of Wheels on the Bus)

The wheels on the train go clickity-clack,
Clickity-clack, clickity-clack.
The wheels on the train go clickity-clack,
All along the track.

The whistle on the train goes whoo-ee-whoo,
Whoo-ee-whoo, whoo-ee-whoo.
The whistle on the train goes whoo-ee-whoo,
All along the track.

The people on the train go up and down,
Up and down, up and down.
The people on the train go up and down,
All along the track.

The conductor on the train says “All aboard!
All aboard! All aboard!”
The conductor on the train says “All aboard!”
All along the track.

Did someone hide it from me?
