Color Balloons
(flannel script)
I had a great big red balloon
Until I let it go.
Now where, oh where, I wonder
Did my balloon blow?

I had a great big blue balloon
The string I held so tight
But when I opened up my hand
My balloon flew out of sight.

I had a great big green balloon
As pretty as could be
But when I let go of its string,
It flew away from me!

I had a great big yellow balloon
When I went out to play
But when I wasn't watching,
My balloon just flew away.

Red balloon, red balloon
Where can you be?
Red balloon, red balloon
Up in a tree.

Blue balloon, blue balloon
Where did you fly?
Blue balloon, blue balloon,
Up in the sky.

Green balloon, green balloon
Where can you be?
Green balloon, green balloon
Under the tree.

Yellow balloon, yellow balloon
Where did you fly?
Yellow balloon, yellow balloon
High in the sky.

G-R-E-E-N
(Tune of Bingo)
There was a frog who liked to jump,
And green was his color!
G-R-E-E-N...

If You’re Wearing…
(Tune of Happy & You Know It)
If you’re wearing red, shake your head,
If you’re wearing red, shake your head,
You’ve got red on and you know it,
So don’t be afraid to show it!
If you’re wearing red, shake your head.

If you’re wearing blue, touch your shoe…
If you’re wearing black, pat your back…
If you’re wearing yellow, shake like Jello…
If you’re wearing brown, turn around…
If you’re wearing pink, stop and think…
If you’re wearing green, make a scene…

Plain On Top
Five ice creams waited at the shop,
But no one wanted to eat them - because they were plain on top!
So, one ice cream took some time to think;
He mixed in some bubble gum and changed his color to PINK!

(Countdown)
... knew what to do; he mixed in some blueberries and changed his color to blue...
... was a smart fellow; he mixed in bananas and changed his color to yellow...
... got an idea in his head; he mixed in some cherries and changed his color to red...
... wanted to leave town; he mixed in some chocolate and changed his color to brown...
