Book 1 Lyrics

Book 1 Lyrics

Singing is a great way to learn the tune to a piece and increase listening skills.  We sing a lot in book 1!

Lightly Row

Lightly row, lightly row, up the ladder we must go.

Lightly row row, lightly row row, hop to E and back just so.

One, two, three, four, five step up.

One, two, three, four, five step off.

Lightly row row, lightly row row, hop to E and back just so.

 

Song of the Wind

When he hears the winter wind the grasshopper he hides, grasshopper he hides

Winter wind is very cold and makes me want to run inside.

Winter wind is very cold and makes me want to hide.

 

Go Tell Aunt Rhody

Go tell Aunt Rhody, listen carefully

Go tell Aunt Rhody, listen now to me.

First I play loudly I use lots of bow,

Then I play softly use less bow.

Go tell Aunt Rhody, listen carefully

Go tell Aunt Rhody, listen now to me.

 

O Come Little Children

Up down up down up is the way we begin.

Up down up down up helps your mother to grin.

Up down up down up we begin every line.

Up down up down up now you’re doing just fine.

 

May Song

All the birds have come back again, all the birds together.

Hear them singing high in the trees, hear them singing high in the trees.

All the birds have come back again, all the birds together.

 

Long Long Ago

Let’s climb the scale, climb the scale, now a slow-bow,

Down now a slow-bow, Down now a slow-bow,

Let’s climb the scale, climb the scale, now a slow-bow

Down now a fast now a slow-bow (list-en)

Now walking now jumping now walking slow-bow

Now walking now jumping now walking slow-bow

Let’s climb the scale, climb the scale, now a slow-bow,

Down now a fast now a slow-bow (list-en)

Allegro

Choo choo choo the train is in the station, ding ding ding put down the crossing gate

Wave wave wave, the engineer is waving.  Down the tracks the train is moving straight.

Round and round the wheels are turning slower slower till they stop.

Choo choo choo the train is in the station, ding ding ding put up the crossing gate

 

Allegro

Head head ears ears shoulders shoulders nose nose, waist waist knees knees ankles ankles toes.

Head head ears ears shoulders shoulders nose nose, waist waist knees knees ankles ankles toes.

Fingers, wrists, and two elbows, and eyes that see, and hair that grooooooooows

Head head ears ears shoulders shoulders nose nose, waist waist knees knees ankles ankles toes.

 

Allegretto

In a place far away on a hot summer day

The three bear’s cottage stood on the edge of a wood.

In a place far away on a hot summer day

The three bears went away for a walk.

First the big papa bear, then the kind mama bear,

Last of all with his chair came the small baby bear.

In a place far away on a hot summer day

The three bears went away for a walk
