Sing a Song

Sing a Song of Sixpence

Mother Goose Time!

Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocketful of rye;
Four and twenty blackbirds,
Baked in a pie.

When the pie was opened,
The birds began to sing;
Wasn’t that a dainty dish,
To put before the king?

The king was in the counting-house,
Counting out his money;
The queen was in the parlor,
Eating bread and honey.

The maid was in the garden,
Hanging out the clothes;
When down came a blackbird,
And bit her on the nose.

Try This

Today’s color is black. Together, play the “Miss Mary Mack” hand rhyme. For young ones, just try clapping hands together.

Miss Mary Mack

Miss Mary Mack Mack Mack
She’s dressed in black black black
With silver buttons buttons buttons
All down her back back back
She asked her mother mother mother
For fifty cents cents cents
To watch the elephant elephant elephant
Jump over the fence, fence fence
He jumped so high high high
He reached the sky sky sky
And he never came back back back
Til the fourth of July July July
