    the grand old duke of york? is that one?

    'The grand old duke of york,
    he had 10,000 men,
    he marched them up to the top of the hill and he marched them down again.
    And when they were up, they were up,
    and when they were down, they were down.
    And when they were only half way up they were neither up nor down!'

    Alasdair loves that and row row row your boat:
    'row row row your boat,
    gently down the stream,
    merrily merrily merrily merrily,
    life is but a dream!

    Sway sway sway your boat,
    gently to and fro,
    up and down and left and right,
    around the world we go!'

    Pull, Pull, Clap, Clap, Clap
    Wind it back again, Wind it back again
    Pull, Pull, Clap, Clap, Clap
    Point to the ceiling
    Point to the floor
    Point to the window
    Point to the door
    Clap your hands together

    Hush, little baby, don't say a word,
    Daddy's gonna buy you a mockingbird.
    And if that mockingbird don't sing,
    Daddy's gonna buy you a diamond ring.
    And if that diamond ring turn brass,
    Daddy's gonna buy you a looking glass.
    And if that looking glass gets broke,
    Daddy's gonna buy you a billy goat.
    And if that billy goat don't pull,
    Daddy's gonna buy you a cart and bull.
    And if that cart and bull turn over,
    Daddy's gonna buy you a dog named Rover.
    And if that dog named Rover won't bark.
    Daddy's gonna buy you a horse and cart.
    And if that horse and cart fall down,
    Well you'll still be the sweetest little baby in town

    I'm a little teapot :rofl:

    ''I'm a little teapot, short and stout
    Here is my handle
    Here is my spout

    When I get all steamed up
    Then I shout
    Just tip me over and pour me out''

    I even do a little dance to it and she loves it! :lol:

    Though this one amuses her, I sing the ''Twinkle, twinkle'' one when it's bedtime.

    row row row your boat
    gently down the stream
    merrily merrily merrily merrily
    life is such a dream

    rock rock rock the boat
    up and down the stream
    and if we see a crocodile
    dont forget to scream

    row row row your boat
    gently down the stream
    merrily merrily merily merily
    life is but a dream

    row row row your boat
    gently down the river
    if you see a polar bear
    dont forget to shiver (shivers)

    row row row your boat
    gently along the shore
    if you see a lion
    dont forget to roar (roars)

    row row row your boat
    gently down the stream
    if you see a crocodile
    dont forget to scream (screams)

    rock rock rock your boat
    gently to and fro
    wibbly wobbly wibbly wobbly
    into the water you go (splash)
