Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry.
Go to sleep little baby.
When you wake,
You shall have cake.  
And all the pretty little horses.  
Blacks and bays
Dapples and grays.  
All the pretty little horses.  
Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry. 
Go to sleep little baby.

Song: “If You’re Happy and You Know it”
A video of the tune is available here  

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands! 
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands!
If you’re happy and you know it,
Then you’re face will surely show it.
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands! 

If you’re sad and you know it, rub your eyes.
If you’re sad and you know it, rub your eyes. 
If you’re sad and you know it,
Then you’re face will surely show it.  
If you’re sad and you know it, rub your eyes.   

If you’re angry and you know it, stomp your feet. 
If you’re angry and you know it, stomp your feet.
If you’re angry and you know it,
Then you’re face will surely show it.  
If you’re angry and you know it, stomp your feet.

Song: “I Have Feelings”
Sung to the tune "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star"
 
I have feelings.  Point to yourself. 
You do too.  Point to a friend. 

Let’s all sing about a few. 

 
This is happy.  Smile.  
This is sad.  Frown.  
This is scared. Make a scared expression.  
And this is mad. Make an angry expression. 
I have feelings.   Point to yourself. 
You do, too. Point to a friend. 
We just sang about a few!
