Sing a Song

Down by the Bay

Down by the bay,
Where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home,
I dare not go,
Cause if I do,
My mother will say,

"Did you ever see a bear? Combing his hair?" Down by the bay.

Down by the bay,
Where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home,
I dare not go,
Cause if I do,
My mother will say,

"Did you ever see a goose? Kissing a moose?" Down by the bay.

Down by the bay,
Where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home,
I dare not go,
Cause if I do,
My mother will say,

"Did you ever see a whale? With a polka dot tail?" Down by the bay.

Down by the bay,
Where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home,
I dare not go,
Cause if I do,
My mother will say,

"Did you ever see a pig? Wearing a wig?" Down by the bay.

Down by the bay, Where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home,
I dare not go,
Cause if I do,
My mother will say,

"Did you ever see a cat? Wearing a hat?" Down by the bay.

Down by the bay,
Where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home,
I dare not go,
Cause if I do,
My mother will say,

"Did you ever see a dragon? Pulling a wagon?" Down by the bay.

Down by the bay,
Where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home,
I dare not go,
Cause if I do,
My mother will say,

"Did you ever see a goat? Wearing a coat?" Down by the bay.

Down by the bay,
Where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home,
I dare not go,

Cause if I do,
My mother will say,
"Did you ever have a time? When you couldn't find a rhyme?"Down by the bay.

Try This

Today is a rainbow day.

Make bubbles with dish soap and water. What colors are your child's bubbles?

Sing the bubble song together while your child plays in the tub:

Dip your pipe and gently blow
Watch the tiny bubble grow
Big and bigger, round and fat
Rainbow colored and then…
SPLAT!
