A-Hunting We Will 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!

Baby Mice *from Knock At the Door by Kay Chorao 
Where are the baby mice?
Squeak, squeak, squeak (Cover eyes)
I cannot see them
Peek, peek, peek (Peek-a-boo)
Here they come from a hole in the wall (Make hole with fingers)
1-2-3-4-5… That’s all! (Count fingers)

Bouncing Mouse 
Boing, boing, squeak
Boing, boing, squeak
A bouncing mouse is in my house
He's been there for a week. (chorus)
He came from out of nowhere
And quickly settled in.
I'm thankful that he came alone
I heard he had a twin.
He bounces in the kitchen
He bounces in the den
He bounces in the living room
Look, there he goes again
That mouse just keeps on bouncing every minute of the day
He bounce, bounce, bounce, bounces
But he does not bounce away

Five Hungry Mice 
Five little mice were hungry as could be
"Let's go to the kitchen and see what we can see!"
The first little mouse found a tasty cookie crumb.
 He ate it right up with a, "Yum, yum, yum!"
The second little mouse found a piece of jelly bread. "
That snack was pretty good," he said.
The third little mouse said, "For goodness sake,
Just look at that delicious chocolate cake!"
The fourth little mouse found a big piece of cheese…
When all of a sudden he started to sneeze!
The fifth little mouse said, "We'd better scat!
Here comes Tommy that big old cat!"

Five Little Mice Went Out to Play
Five little mice went out to play,
Gathering cheese along the way
Out comes the kitty cat nice and fat
And only four little mice came back.
(Repeat 4-3-2-1)

Hickory Dickory Dock
Hickory dickory dock
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck one, the mouse ran down
Hickory dickory dock

Hickory dickory dock
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck two, the mouse said, “Boo!”
Hickory dickory dock

Little Mouse, Little Mouse
 Little mouse, little mouse,
Are you in a red house? No...
(repeat with other colored houses until mouse is found)

Three White Mice 
Three white mice, three white mice
See how they run, see how they run
They all were chased by a farmer’s cat
They ran and hit in an old straw hat
Did you ever see such a sight as that?
Those three white mice…

When Mice Get Up in the Morning 
When mice get up in the morning, they always say, “Good day.”
When mice get up in the morning, they always say, “Good day.”
Squeak-squeak! Squeak-squeak!
That is what they say
Squeak-squeak! Squeak-squeak!
That is what they say

Where is Mousie?
(Tune of: "Where is Thumbkin?")
Where is Mousie?  Where is Mousie?
Here I am - Here I am
How are you today, Sir - Very well, I thank you
Run away - Run away
