JOHN JACOB JINGLE HEIMER SCHMIDT
John Jacob Jingle Heimer Schmidt
His name is my name too
Whenever we go out
The people always shout
There goes John Jacob Jingle Heimer Schmidt.
Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah.

(Repeat the verse over and over, each time singing lower and lower until it is lip synced and then the last line is sung very loudly).
OLD LADY WHO SWALLOWED A FLY
There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.
I don't know why she swallowed a fly.
I guess she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a spider.
That wiggled and jiggled and tickled insider her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
I don't know why she swallowed a fly.
I guess she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a bird.
How absurd! To swallow a bird!
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and jiggled and tickled insider her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
I don't know why she swallowed a fly.
I guess she'll die.

Continue adding on verses:
Cat . . . Imagine that!
She swallowed a cat.
Dog . . . What a hog!
She swallowed a dog.
Goat . . . She opened her throat
and in walked a goat.
Cow . . . I don't know how
she swallowed that cow.

There was an old lady,
she swallowed a horse.
She DIED of course!
ALICE WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
Alice, where are you going?
Up-stairs to take a bath
Alice, with legs like toothpicks
And a neck like a giraffe-raf-raf

Alice, stepped into the bathtub
Pulled out the plug
OH MY GOODNESS OH MY SOUL
There goes Alice down the hole!
Alice, where are you going?
Glub, glub, glub
Without your towel!
THE SECOND STORY WINDOW
The window, the window
The second-story window
If you don't know a rhyme or sing it in time,
We'll throw you out the window!

Mary had a little lamb,
Its fleece was white as snow
And every where that Mary went -
She threw it out the window!
The window, the window...
The second-story window
If you don't know a rhyme or sing it in time,
We'll throw you out the window!


(Repeat with other nursery rhymes until you run out! You can also divide your singing group into teams and sing this song as a competition.)
I'M GLAD
I'm glad I'm at Oh-Neh-Tah boom, boom
Beside the lake so blue boom, boom
I'm glad I'm at Oh-Neh-Tah Aren't you?

I like to swim in the lake boom, boom
Those gypsy days are great boom, boom
I'm glad I'm at Oh-Neh-Tah Aren't you?

Wouldn't want to be at Talako Or Tawanka as you see
Manitou hasn't got it, Oh-Neh-Tah for me!
I'm glad I'm at Oh-Neh-Tah boom, boom

Beside the lake so blue
I'm glad I'm at Oh-Neh-Tah
Aren't you, aren't you, aren't you?

Ho ho hey!

The ants go marching one by one. Hurrah, Hurrah.
