Songs for Little Babies


Twinkle,Twinkle Little Star
Twinkle, twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

Twinkle, twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are.
(repeat)

Rock a Bye Baby

Rock-a-bye baby
on the tree top,
When the wind blows
The cradle will rock.
When the bough breaks,
The cradle will fall,
And down will come baby,
Cradle and all.
(repeat)
Down will come baby,
Cradle and all.

Baa Baa Black Sheep

Baa baa black sheep have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
three bags full.
One for my master
and one for the dame, and one for the little boy who lives down the lane.
Baa baa black
sheep have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
three bags full.


“Love grows from the closeness that you establish though hugging, praising, and talking with your child.”


Hush Little Baby

Hush little baby don’t say a word,
Mama’s gonna buy you a mocking bird,

And if that mocking bird don’t sing,
Mama’s gonna buy you a diamond ring,

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama’s gonna buy you looking glass,


And if that looking glass gets broke,
Mama’s gonna buy you a billy goat,

And if that billy goat won’t pull,
Mama’s gonna buy you a cart ‘n bull,

And if that cart ‘n bull turn over,
Mama’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover,

And if that dog named Rover won’t bark,
Mama’s gonna buy you a horse ‘n cart,

And if that horse and cart fall down,
You’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.

Hey Diddle Diddle
Hey diddle diddle
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed to see such fun
And the dish ran away with the spoon!


“Playtime should be a happy time. Use a variety of facial expressions, voice patterns and hand gestures as you play with baby.”


Cry Baby Bunting
Cry Baby Bunting
Daddy’s gone a-hunting
Gone to fetch a rabbit skin
To wrap the Baby Bunting in

Mama’s Little Baby
Mama’s little baby a kiss can blow
(blow a kiss)
And rub noses just like so.
(rub noses with baby)
Two little hands can clap, clap, clap,
(clap baby’s hands)
Ten little toes can tap, tap, tap
(tap baby’s toes)


Little Boys & Girls

What are little boys made of?
Snips and snails,

and puppy dogs tails
That’s what little boys are made of
What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice
and all things nice
That’s what little girls are made of

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake
Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake baker’s man,
Bake me a cake as fast as you can,
Pat it and roll it and mark it with a “B”,
Put it in the oven for baby and me,
(REPEAT)
Put it in the oven for baby and me,
(REPEAT)
Diddle, Diddle, Dumpling
Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John,
Went to bed with his trousers on;
One shoe off, and one shoe on,
Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John!
This is the Way Baby Rides

This is the way baby rides,
Baby rides, baby rides.
This is the way baby rides,
Bouncy, bouncy, bouncy.
Bounce baby slowly on your knee while
singing
