A-Hunting We Will Go
A-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go,
We'll catch a fox and put him in a box,
And then we'll let him go.

A-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go,
We'll catch a bear and comb her hair,
And then we'll let her go.

A-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go,
We'll catch a mouse and put him in a house,
And then we'll let him go.

A-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go,
We'll catch a whale and tickle her tail,
And then we'll let her go.

A-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go,
We'll catch a goat and put him in a boat,
And then we'll let him go.

Balls Are for Bouncing
(Tune: Hands are for Clapping)
Balls are for bouncing,
Bouncing to this song!
Balls are for bouncing,
Let’s bounce all day along.

Ballls are for throwing…
Balls are for catching…
Balls are for rolling…

Bounce and Catch It
Bounce and catch it, bounce and catch it!
Bounce and catch the ball!
Bounce and catch it, bounce and catch it!
Do not let it fall!

Did You Ever See A Hare?
(Tune of: Did You Ever See A Lassie)
Did you ever see a hare,
A hare, a hare,
Did you ever see a hare
Who runs so fast?
He zips and zaps,
And zooms right on past.
Did you ever see a hare
Who runs so fast?

Did you ever see a tortoise,
A tortoise, a tortoise,
Did you ever see a tortoise
Who crawls so slow?
She knows she’s so low,
Her legs will not grow.
Did you ever see a tortoise
Who crawls so slow?

Hare and Tortoise Song
(Tune of "Farmer in the Dell")
The hare ran so fast,
The Hare ran so fast.
Heigh-ho, the derry-oh,
The Hare ran so fast.

The tortoise crawled so slow,
The tortoise crawled so slow.
Heigh-ho, the derry-oh,
The tortoise crawled so slow.

The hare stopped to rest,
The hare stopped to rest.
Heigh-ho, the derry-oh,
The hare stopped to rest.

The tortoise won the race,
The tortoise won the race.
Heigh-ho, the derry-oh,
The tortoise won the race.

Here’s A Ball for Bouncing
Here’s a ball for bouncing. I bounce it 1, 2, 3.
Here’s a ball for throwing. Can you catch it? Let me see!
Here’s a ball for rolling, roll it back to me!

I’m Bouncing
I’m bouncing everywhere.
I bounce into the air.
I’m bouncing like a ball.
I bounce until I fall.

One Elephant Went Out to Play
One elephant went out to play,
On a spider’s web one day.
He had such enormous fun
That he called for another elephant to come.

(Keep adding elephants until)
Five elephants went out to play,
On a spider’s web one day.
They had such enormous fun
That they played all day, ‘till the day was done.

Patty Cake
Patty cake, patty cake, baker's man,
Bake me a cake as fast as you can.
Roll it, and pat it, and mark it with a “B”
And put it in the oven for baby and me.
