Sing a Song

In Our Backyard

Tune: Mulberry Bush

This is the way we bounce a balloon
Bounce a balloon, bounce a balloon.
This is the way we bounce a balloon,
In our backyard.

This is the way we ring a bell
Ring a bell, ring a bell.
This is the way we ring a bell,
In our backyard.

This is the way we fly like a bat
Fly like a bat, fly like a bat.
This is the way we fly like a bat,
In our backyard.

This is the way we sing like a bird
Sing like a bird, sing like a bird.
This is the way we sing like a bird,
In our backyard.

This is the way we eat a banana
Eat a banana, eat a banana.
This is the way we eat a banana,
In our backyard.

This is the way we bounce a ball
Bounce a ball, bounce a ball.
This is the way we bounce a ball,
In our backyard.
