Mulberry Bush: Days of the Week
(Nursery Rhyme Time by Georgiana Stewart)
Here we go round the mulberry bush,
Mulberry bush, mulberry bush
Here we go round the mulberry bush
So early in the morning

This is the way we wake up and stretch…
So early Monday morning

This is the way we wash our hands…
So early Tuesday morning

This is the way we brush our teeth…
So early Wednesday morning

This is the way we comb our hair…
So early Thursday morning


This is the way we put on our shoes…
So early Friday morning

This is the way we eat our food…
So early Saturday morning

This is the way we read a book…
So early Sunday morning


Happy Days
(Tune: Happy & You Know It – Dr. Jean)
When you're glad it's Sunday, clap your hands
When you're glad it's Sunday, clap your hands
Let's spell Sunday
It's a fun day
S-U-N-D-A-Y

Monday - Marvelous Monday - Stomp your feet
Tuesday - Terrific Tuesday - Nod your head
Wednesday - Wonderful Wednesday - Blink your eyes
Thursday - Thrilling Thursday - Snap your fingers
Friday - Fantastic Friday - Bounce around
Saturday - Super Saturday - Shout Hooray


Monday's Cat
(Meguido Zola and David Booth)

Monday's cat drinks lots of milk.
Tuesday's cat is smooth as silk.
Wednesday's cat creeps through the house.
Thursday's cat can't catch his mouse.
Friday's cat will clean her fur.
Saturday's cat just loves to purr.
Sunday's cat will scratch his head and yawn and stretch and stay in bed.

Days of the Week
(Tune of "Adams Family")

There's Sunday and there's Monday,
There's Tuesday and there's Wednesday
There's Thursday and there's Friday
And then there's Saturday.
Days of the Week (clap clap)
Days of the Week (clap clap)
Days of the week, days of the week, days of the week (clap clap)

Days of the Week
(Tune of "Alouette")
Sunday, Monday,
Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday
Friday, Saturday,
Let's begin again.

Sunday, Monday,
Tuesday- Wednesday-Thursday,
Friday, Saturday,
That will be the end!

Days of the Week
(Sung to the tune of "Oh My Darlin' Clementine")

There are seven days, there are seven days,
There are seven days in a week
Sunday, Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday,
That's the week.

Days of the Week
(Tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star")
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday too.
Wednesday, Thursday just for you.
Friday, Saturday that's the end.
Now let's say those days again!
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday!

Thanks for these. I'm doing a days of the week storytime and I can't wait to try out some of the songs.
