I’m a Nut

I’m an acorn, small and round
Lying on the cold, cold ground
Everybody steps on me
That is why I’m cracked you see.

I’m a nut! (click, click) (make the “click, click” sound out of the side of your mouth)
I’m a nut! (click, click)
I’m a nut! I’m a nut! I’m a nut! (click, click)

I’m so nutty, you can see
I fell from that big oak tree.
Dad’s a nut, and so is Mom
That is why I sing this song.

I’m a nut! (click, click)
I’m a nut! (click, click)
I’m a nut! I’m a nut! I’m a nut! (click, click)

Brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts,
Nutty grandma, nutty gramps.
We’re all nuts and you’ll agree
Our family fell from the big nut tree!

I’m a nut! (click, click)
I’m a nut! (click, click)
I’m a nut! I’m a nut! I’m a nut! (click, click)

Bought Me a Cat

Bought me a cat and the cat pleased me,
I fed my cat under yonder tree.
Cat goes fiddle-i-fee. (act like you’re playing a fiddle)

Bought me a hen and the hen pleased me,
I fed my hen under yonder tree.
Hen goes chimmy-chuck, chimmy-chuck,
Cat goes fiddle-i-fee.

Bought me a duck and the duck pleased me,
I fed my duck under yonder tree.
Duck goes quack, quack,
Hen goes chimmy-chuck, chimmy-chuck,
Cat goes fiddle-i-fee.

Bought me a chicken and the chicken pleased me
I fed my chicken under yonder tree.
Chicken goes b’gok, b’gok,
Duck goes quack, quack,
Hen goes chimmy-chuck, chimmy-chuck,
Cat goes fiddle-i-fee.

Bought me a sheep and the sheep pleased me,
I fed my sheep under yonder tree.
Sheep goes baa, baa,
Chicken goes b’gok, b’gok,
Duck goes quack, quack,
Hen goes chimmy-chuck, chimmy-chuck,
Cat goes fiddle-i-fee.

Bought me a pig and the pig pleased me,
I fed my pig under yonder tree.
Pig goes oink, oink,
Sheep goes baa, baa,
Chicken goes b’gok, b’gok,
Duck goes quack, quack,
Hen goes chimmy-chuck, chimmy-chuck,
Cat goes fiddle-i-fee.

Bought me a cow and the cow pleased me,
I fed my cow under yonder tree.
Cow goes moo, moo,
Pig goes oink, oink,
Sheep goes baa, baa,
Chicken goes b’gok, b’gok,
Duck goes quack, quack,
Hen goes chimmy-chuck, chimmy-chuck,
Cat goes fiddle-i-fee.

Bought me a horse and the horse pleased me,
I fed my horse under yonder tree.
Horse goes neigh, neigh,
Cow goes moo, moo,

Duck goes quack, quack,
Hen goes chimmy-chuck, chimmy-chuck,
Cat goes fiddle-i-fee.

Bought me a dog and the dog pleased me,
I fed my dog under yonder tree.
Dog goes bow-wow, bow-wow,
Horse goes neigh, neigh,

Chicken goes b’gok, b’gok,
Duck goes quack, quack,

Three Chartreuse Buzzards

Three Chartreuse Buzzards (Each time you sing “three” hold up 3 fingers. Each time you sing “chartreuse” flap your arms like buzzard wings. Each time you sing “buzzards” make a scary face and put your hands up like buzzard talons)
Three Chartreuse Buzzards
Three Chartreuse Buzzards
Sitting on a dead tree. (Each time you sing this line, make your body into a bent shape like a dead tree)

Oh, look! (Flip both hands in the air in surprise when you say each of these lines)
One has flown a-way!
Isn’t it a shame?

Two Chartreuse Buzzards (Each time you say “two” hold up two fingers…)
Two Chartreuse Buzzards
Two Chartreuse Buzzards
Sitting on a dead tree.

Oh, look!
One has flown a-way!
Isn’t it a shame?

One Chartreuse Buzzard (Each time you say “one” hold up one finger…)
One Chartreuse Buzzard
One Chartreuse Buzzard
Sitting on a dead tree.

Oh, look!
One has flown a-way!
Isn’t it a shame?

No Chartreuse Buzzards (Each time you say “no” make your fingers form a zero.)
No Chartreuse Buzzards
No Chartreuse Buzzards
Sitting on a dead tree.

Oh, look!
One has re-turned!
Let us re-joice!
One Chartreuse Buzzard
One Chartreuse Buzzard
One Chartreuse Buzzard
Sitting on a dead tree.

Oh, look!
One has re-turned!
Let us re-joice!

I Know An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

I know an old lady who swallowed a fly.
I don’t know why she swallowed the fly.
I think she’ll die.

I know an old lady who swallowed a spider
(move fingers like spider’s legs and tickle your tummy)
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her!
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
But I don’t know why she swallowed the fly.
I think she’ll die.

I know an old lady who swallowed a bird
How absurd to swallow a bird!
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
But I don’t know why she swallowed the fly
I think she’ll die.

I know an old lady who swallowed a cat
Now fancy that to swallow a cat!
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
But I don’t know why she swallowed the fly
I think she’ll die

I know an old lady who swallowed a dog
My what a hog to swallow a dog!
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
But I don’t know why she swallowed the fly
I think she’ll die

I know an old lady who swallowed a goat
Just opened her throat and in walked the goat!
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
But I don’t know why she swallowed the fly
I think she’ll die

I know an old lady who swallowed a cow
I don’t know how she swallowed a cow
She swallowed the cow to catch the goat
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wriggled and jiggled and tickled inside her
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly
But I don’t know why she swallowed the fly
I think she’ll die

I know an old lady who swallowed a horse

She died, of course!
