This little train goes up the track (walk fingers up baby's arm)

"The Wheels on the Bus"

For the tune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvzk5jkrEkM

The wheels on the bus go round and round
Round and round, Round and round.
The wheels on the bus go round and round
All through the town.

Put arms in front of you like windshield wipers on 'swish, swish, swish'

The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish,
Swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish,
The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish,
All through the town.

The door on the bus goes open and shut,
Open and shut, open and shut,
The door on the bus goes open and shut,
All through the town.

Honk horn on 'beep, beep, beep'

The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep,
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep,
The horn on the bus goes beep, beep, beep,
All through the town.

Rub eyes with fisted hands on 'wah, wah, wah'

The baby on the bus says, wah, wah, wah!
Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah!
The baby on the bus says, wah, wah, wah!
All through the town.

Put pointer finger in front of mouth on 'shh, shh, shh'

The people on the bus say, shh, shh, shh,
shh, shh, shh, shh, shh, shh,
The people on the bus say, shh, shh, shh,
All through the town.

"Stoplight Chant"
The red at the top  
Tells us to STOP! Hold up palm facing out.
The green below  
Tells us to GO! Sweep arm out as traffic cop would.
The yellow in the middle  
Tells us to WAIT! Extend both arms out.
   
Please don't worry,  
You won't be late.
