Jumping Fish

I closed my eyes and saw a fish
That swam inside my head
Who laughed at all the people
That were jumping on my bed.

But then the jumping people
And the funny little fish
They ran into my sister's room
And jumped inside a dish.

Don't wake me up.

When I sleep
My head is full
Of funny things
That kick and pull.

Like boxes that can play guitars
Or yellow birds that come from Mars.
There's one legged goats that like to sing
And three-legged birds that all say "Ping!!!"
And Elephants that pull down trees
With fish that all have dirty knees.
There's floating bits of Marmite toast,
And flying eggs that like to boast.
There's monkeys and Orangutangs
And cardboard boxes that have fangs.
Yes when I sleep, I see these things
And sometimes all of them have wings...

But when I wake
It's really weird
All these strange things
Have disappeared.

When I am watching...

When I am watching stars at night
And when I fly my sister's kite
I think about how small I am...
And I feel little like a lamb

But when I watch the birds that fly
And when I see the bright blue sky
Well then I think I'm made of iron
And I feel stronger than a lion.

Doctor, doctor help me quick
I think I'm feeling very sick,
My tongues gone rough,
My skin's grown fur,
And I can't speak no more
I purr...

I really want to climb in trees
And suddenly I've got four knees
I've got sharp nails (they're almost claws)
And really sharp teeth in my jaws.

All I want is fish and milk
My fur's so smooth it feels like silk
What would you think
If I said that...
I think I've turned
Into a cat?

Inside the Whale

Inside the whale there was a mouse
That lived inside a tiny house
And all day long the mouse sang songs
And played the flute and banged on gongs

Until the great big whale he said
"All this noise inside my head
It's just too much you have to go."
And then he gave a great big blow

And so the mouse, out of control,
Came flying from his squirty-hole
He flew right up into the sky
And hit a black bird passing by!

The Sleepy Ghost.

There was a sleepy little ghost
Whose heart was full of dread,
Because he thought another ghost
Was underneath his bed.

And so he moved and went to sleep
In the place he loved the most,
Underneath the creaky bed,
Of another sleeping ghost.

River Rhyme.

By the river Severn
I counted to eleven
And by the river Torridge
I ate a bowl of porridge

By the river Tees
I washed my dirty knees
And on the river Lune
I sang a little tune

By the river Gipping
I couldn’t keep from skipping
And by the river Thame
I had to do the same

I swam the river Rother
Without the slightest bother
But as I crossed the Dee
I got washed out to sea!

The little car.

The little car was feeling sad
He'd run right out of fuel
And so he made himself feel glad
By eating loads of gruel.

And then he drove around the town
And over hill and dale
And round and round in circles
Until he caught his tail.

Eating flowers.

I'm sitting in the garden
Eating lots of flowers,
I can sit and eat them all
For hours and hours and hours.

And when I'm feeling really full,
I rush up to the loo,
And do a little wee wee,
And have a great big poo!

Harvey's box.

Harvey's got a box of tricks
That when he's sad
He sometimes kicks.

But when he's happy
For a treat
He dances with it
In the street!

The Rabbits Jump

The rabbits jump
They jump and jump
They jump into the sky,
And disappear behind the cloud
That's made of cherry pie.

The lobsters in the sea they run
They run and run and run
And float upon the little boat
That's made of cherry bun.

And cherries in my dream arrive
And jump on rabbits' toes
And chase away the lobsters
Who all run up my nose.

And then I sneeze,
And sneeze and sneeze
And oh I must confess
I cover all my hands and face
With snotty lobster mess.

Upside down.

Can we have our lunch for breakfast
And our breakfast for our tea
And can I eat my cereals
Up in the yellow tree?
Can I go to bed right now
And wake up yesterday?
Could you try to teach me how,
Would that be okay?

Can I walk up on the stars
Can the birds fly in the sea?
Would you ever hold my hand
And fly away with me?
Can all my dreams come true right now
Or at least by Saturday
Could you try to teach me how,
Would that be okay?

Emily-Emily sing me a song
Make it all happy and not very long
Make it about all the stars in the sky
And all of the things that I see with my eye.

Sing me a song about leopards and bears
Sing me a song about tables and chairs
Sing me a song about stars in the night
Sing about walruses flying a kite
Sing me a song about apples and cake
Sing me a song about learning to bake
Sing me a song about peacocks and tails
Sing about dolphins riding on whales.
Sing about night-time, sing about day
Sing about children learning to play.

Emily sing me a song I can keep
Dear Emily-Emily
Sing me to sleep.

The Frog, the frog, the frog.

The frog, the frog, the frog
He jumped off of his log
Straight into the steamy-stinky
Stinky, stinky bog.

And happy as can be
He swam around with me
Until we found a kayak
And paddled it out to sea.

Elephant, Elephant

Elephant, Elephant
Your skin is all grey
You're covered in wrinkles
And munching on hay.
But I know that last week
You were dancing with the bears
While juggling bananas
And eating juicy pears.

Elephant, Elephant
I laugh so much I cry
When you shower icy water
On the Zoo keeper and I.
But I remember last month
You were jumping up and down
Upon your favourite trampoline
Dressed up as a clown.

Elephant, Elephant
What time is it today
That you will play the violin
And chase the clouds away?
'Cause I remember last year
That you had a big balloon
And filled it up with helium
And flew off to the moon.

Hot and Cold

The wind is hot,
The wind is cold
Both of these things
I have been told.

But no one warned me
The wind would blow
my hat away.

Inside a glass of orange juice
There swam a little fish,
Who said that if I sang for him
He would grant me a wish.
And so I sang a little song
About a little fish,
Who swam around in orange juice
And granted me a wish.

Inside a glass of orange juice
There swam a little fish
Who said that if I danced for him
He would grant me a wish.
And so I danced a little dance
About a little fish.
Who swam around in orange juice
And granted me a wish.

Inside a glass of orange juice
There swam a little fish
Who said that if I told a joke
He would grant me a wish.
And so I told a little joke
About a little fish.
Who swam around in orange juice
And granted me a wish.

The little fish he granted
Me wishes one, two, three
And then politely asked if
I would set him free.
And so I poured the orange juice
Out into the sea
And then the little fish he
Waved goodbye to me.

Mr Platypus

My friend the Duck-billed Platypus
He ate a great big cake
But when he tried to swim again
He got a belly ache.

And so he bought a little boat
And sailed it out to sea,
Where he had a lovely picnic
With his Duck-bill friends and me.

Happy's here to stay.

This is Mr Happy
He's a little clown
And when he plays the mandolin
He does it upside down.

Mr Happy's happy
He's dancing in the hay
And sings a little song for us,
Called Happy's here to stay.

Jumping Sid.

My pet spider Jumping Sid,
When he got scared he often hid
Between my dirty little toes,
Or deep inside my snotty nose.

But Jumping Sid
He wasn't pleased,
When his legs tickled,
And I sneezed!

Bob's Job

He loved his Job
Cleaning out the loo...

But sad to tell,
One day he fell,
Into a pile of poo.

Mouse in the house?

Last night I thought I heard a mouse
Running round inside my house.

But when I did investigate
I found my little sister Kate...

Sitting in her underwear,
Rubbing biscuits in her hair.

The Windy Wind

When the windy wind it blows
I hope it doesn't take my nose
It's very useful when I smell
And so's a bar of soap as well

And when the snowy snow it falls
I can't help walking into walls
It's my fault though, I get a fright,
I painted all my walls in white!

Frosty Cold

When the weather's frosty cold
No-one does what they've been told
So all the teachers scream and shout
And put their gloves on inside out.

But when the weather's warm and hot
Then no one does what they should not
So all the teachers smile instead
And wear their knickers on their head!
