Track Name: Skippin' Song
Jelly on a plate jelly on a plate
With a wibbley wobbley wibbley wobbley
Jelly on a plate

Candles on a cake candles on a cake
Blow them out puff, puff, puff
Candles on a cake

Sausages in the pan sausages in the pan
Flip them over flip them over
Sausages in the pan

Sweeties in the jar sweeties in the jar
Gobble them up gobble them up
Sweeties in the jar

Money on the ground money on the ground
Pick it up pick it up
Money on the ground
Track Name: The Spider
Incy Wincy spider climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain and it washed the spider out
Out came the sun and it dried up all the rain
And Incy Wincy spider climbed up the spout again
Track Name: Miss Molly
Miss Molly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick
So she called for the doctor to come quick, quick, quick
The doctor came with his bag and his hat
And he knocked on the door with a rat-a-tat-tat
He looked at the dolly and he shook his head
And he said "Miss Molly put her straight to bed"
He wrote on some paper for a pill, pill, pill
"I'll be back in the morning with my bill, bill, bill."
Track Name: Blind Mice
One blind mouse one blind mouse
See how he runs see how he runs
He scurried after the farmer’s wife
She cut off his tail with a carving knife
She never saw such a thing in her house as one blind mouse

Two blind mice two blind mice
See how they run see how they run
They both ran after the farmer’s wife
She cut off their tails with a carving knife
Did you ever see such a thing in your life as two blind mice?

Three blind mice three blind mice
See how they run see how they run
They all ran after the farmer's wife
She cut off their tails with a carving knife
Did you ever see such a thing in your life as three blind mice?
Track Name: Old Man Blues
Lyrics:

It’s raining it’s pouring
The old man is snoring
He went to bed and bumped his head
And couldn’t get up in the morning
Track Name: Baby's Dish
Dance to your daddy
My little laddie/lassie
Dance to your daddy
My little lamb

You shall have a fishy
On a little dishy
You shall have a fishy
When the boat comes in

Fishy fishy in a brook
Daddy caught him on a hook
Mammy cooked the little fish
And served it up in Baby’s dish
Track Name: The King's Concerto
Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye
Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie
When the pie was opened the birds began to sing
Wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king

The king was in his counting house counting out his money
The queen was in the parlour eating bread and honey
The maid was in the garden hanging out the clothes
When down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose
Track Name: Humpty Dumpty
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again
Track Name: Don't Forget to Scream
Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
If you see a crocodile
Don’t forget to scream!
Track Name: Michael Finnegan
There was an old man named Michael Finnegan
He had whiskers on his chinnegan
The wind came along and blew them in again
Poor old Michael Finnegan

There was an old man named Michael Finnegan
He went fishing with a pin again
Caught a fish but it flopped back in again
Poor old Michael Finnegan

There was an old man named Michael Finnegan
He ran a race and tried to win again
He fell down and bumped his shin again
Poor old Michael Finnegan
Track Name: An Old Story
Johnny sat down and he told an old story
He told it and told it and told it again:

"Hey diddle diddle
The cat and the fiddle
The cow jumped over the moon
The little dog laughed to see such fun
And the dish ran away with the spoon"

“Be Gob”, said old Biddy, “You tell it so well
Why don’t you sit down and tell it again?”

So...Johnny sat down and he told an old story
He told it and told it and told it again...
Track Name: Old King Cole
Old King Cole was a merry old soul and a merry old soul was he
He called for his pipe and he called for his bowl
And he called for his fiddlers three
Now every fiddler had a fine fiddle and a very fine fiddle had he

Fiddle fiddle dee fiddle dee went the fiddlers “Very fine men are we!”
There’s none so rare as can compare to the King’s fine fiddlers three
Fiddle fiddle dee fiddle dee went the fiddlers “Very fine men are we!”
There’s none so rare as can compare to the King’s fine fiddlers three
Track Name: Jack and Jill
Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after

Up Jack got and home did trot
As fast as he could caper
He went to bed and covered his head
In vinegar and brown paper
Track Name: Dilín
Dilín ó deamhas ó deamhas
Dilín ó deamhas ó dí
Dilín ó deamhas ó deamhas ó deamhas ó
Dilín ó deamhas ó dí

She didn’t dance at all
She didn’t dance today
She didn’t dance at all at all no
She didn’t dance today

Caithfimid suas is suas
Caithfimid suas an páiste
Caithfimid suas í suas is suas í
'S tiocfaidh sí 'nuas amárach

Throw her uppity up
Throw her up so high
Throw her uppity up up up
And she will come down nearby
Track Name: The Scarecrow
When all the cows were sleeping
And the sun had gone to bed
Up jumped the scarecrow
And this is what he said

Chorus:
I'm a dingle, dangle scarecrow
With a great big floppy hat
I can shake my hands like this
And I can shake my feet like that

When all the hens were roosting
And the moon behind a cloud
Up jumped the scarecrow
And shouted very loud

Loud Chorus

When dogs were in the kennels
And doves were in the loft
Up jumped the scarecrow
And whispered very soft

Soft Chorus
Loud Chorus
Track Name: Homeward Bound
Horsey, Horsey don’t you stop
Just let your hooves go clippity clop
Let your tail go swish and the wheels go round
Giddy up! We’re homeward bound
Track Name: The Star
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

When the blazing sun is gone
When he nothing shines upon
Then you show your little light
Twinkle, twinkle all the night
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

Then the traveller in the dark
Thanks you for your tiny spark
He could not see where to go
If you did not twinkle so
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

In the dark blue sky you keep
And often through my curtains peep
For you never shut your eye
'Til the sun is in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

As your bright and tiny spark
Lights the traveller in the dark
Though I know not what you are
Twinkle, twinkle little star
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
