A New Song!

I wrote a new song for our co-op this week, where the current theme is Transportation. I felt like too many of the songs we had focused on the same few modes and it'd be nice to have one with a little more diversity. It was a huge hit! The kids made us do it again and we could have repeated several times if we hadn't wanted to move on.

It's very easy for everyone to join in even if they don't know the song yet, you just need one person who remembers the rhyming line. You can do relevant hand/body motions during the song and clap or stomp or whatever for the beat-beat at the end of the lines. The leading "Oh" can be replaced with "Yes" or "Now" or "And" or whatever. I stuck with "Oh" here for simplicity. New stanzas can also be added, of course. I did this in less than five minutes starting with a bit I stole from another song so my artistic integrity is not threatened.

If you don't have little kids to sing with, you almost certainly won't care.


Going Places (To the tune of "If You're Happy and You Know It")

Oh we're riding on the bus, on the bus
Oh we're riding on the bus, on the bus
Oh we're riding on the bus
Come and ride along with us
Oh we're riding on the bus, on the bus

Oh we're flying on a plane, on a plane
Oh we're flying on a plane, on a plane
Oh we're flying on a plane
Through the clouds and through the rain
Oh we're flying on a plane, on a plane

Oh we're riding on a bike on a bike
Oh we're riding on a bike on a bike
Oh we're riding on a bike
Come and join us if you like
Oh we're riding on a bike on a bike

Oh we're walking down the street, down the street
Oh we're walking down the street, down the street
Oh we're walking down the street
Saying hi to those we meet
Oh we're walking down the street, down the street
