Here are some fun songs you can enjoy this week. 

Here We Go Looby-Loo

Here we go looby loo,
Here we go looby light,
Here we go looby loo,
All on a Saturday night.

You put your right hand in.
Your put your right hand out.
You give your hand a shake, shake, shake,
And turn yourself about.

(Repeat with left hand, right foot, left foot, etc. - Movements can include walking in a circle during the chorus, walking in and out of the circle, etc.)

This is the Way Knee Bounce

This is the way the ladies ride:
Clip Clop, Clip Clop.
This is the way the gentlemen ride:
Trit Trot, Trit Trot.
This is the way the farmers ride:
Hobbledee! Hobbledee! (very bouncy)
And down in the ditch! (roll child off your knee and catch them just off the floor)

I’m a Little Cowboy

(Tune: I’m a Little Tea Pot) 
I’m a little cowboy, here is my hat.
Here are my boots, and here are my chaps.
When I get up, I work all day,
Get on my horse and ride away!

Giddy-Up!

(Tune: William Tell Overture, a.k.a. Lone Ranger)
Giddy-up, giddy-up, giddy-up, up, up!
Giddy-up, giddy-up, giddy-up, up, up!
Giddy-up, giddy-up, giddy-up, up, up!
Whoa, horsie!

I Want Someone To Buy Me a Pony

I want someone to buy me a pony,
Jig jog jig jog jigga jog gee.
Not too fat and not too boney,
Jig jog jig jog jigga jog gee.
For I want to go for a ride.
All around the country side,
With a jig jog jig jog jig jog jig jog
Jig jog jigga jog gee.
With a jig jog jig jog jig jog jig jog
Jig jog jigga jog gee.

All the Pretty Little Horses

Hush-a-bye, Don't you cry
Go to sleep, my little baby
When you wake, you shall have
All the pretty little horses
Blacks and bays, dapples and grays,
A coach and pretty little horses.
Blacks and bays, dapples and grays,
A coach and pretty little horses.
