The engine chugs along,
The engine chugs along,
Up and down the mountain tracks,
The engine chugs along.
The train goes click, click, click,
The train goes click, click, click,
Straight across the open plain,
The train goes click, click, click!
The whistle goes woo, woo,
The whistle goes woo, woo,
All across the USA,
The whistle goes woo, woo!!

Two Little Blue Birds

(Often sung as Two Little RED Birds)
Two little blue birds (hold one finger from each hand, or 2 bird puppets, in front of you)
Sitting on a hill
One named Jack (wiggle one finger)
One named Jill (wiggle the other)
Fly away Jack (put hand behind back)
Fly away Jill (put the other hand behind back)
Come back Jack (bring one hand back to front with finger up)
Come back Jill (bring out other hand)

Two Red Apples

Way up high, in a tree (raise hands over head)
Two red apples smiled at me (smile)
So I shook that tree as har-r-d as I could (Pretend to shake tree)
Down came the apples, M-m-m-m, they were good! (Rub tummy)

Way Up High

Way up high In the winter sky,
Two little snowflakes caught my eye.
Down to the ground they fell without a sound.
And before very long , It was snowing all around.
