Recommended Posts

I have hear one sung to the tune of the little green frog

 

Cluck cluck when the little red hen one day (Flapping arms)

Cluck cluck went the little red hen (flapping arms)

Cluck cluck when the little red hen one day (flapping arms)

And they all went cluck cluck cluck

But we know hens go sha la lal a la sha la la la la sha la la la la (jazz hands)

We know hens go sha la la la la (jazz hands)

they don't go cluck cluck cluck (shake heads and flap arms)

Repeat

 

(Bits in brackets are the actions to go with the song)

Said the first little chicken

with a queer little squirm,

"I wish I could find

A fat little worm."

 

Said the second little chicken,

with an odd little shrug,

"I wish I could find

A fat little bug."

 

Said the third little chicken'

With a sharp little squeal,

"I wish I could find

Some nice Yellow corn meal."

 

Said the fourth little chicken

with a sigh of grief,

"I wish I could find

A little green leaf."

 

Said the fifth little chicken,

With a faint little moan,

"I wish I could find

A wee gravel stone."

 

"Now see here, said the mother,

From the green garden patch,

"If you want any breakfast,

Just come her and scratch!"

 

This is the only one I can think of apart from Chick Chick Chicken

Fab! But two questions: what is the little green frog tune and what are jazz hands? Sounds great though - it's made me giggle!

I'm goona sound crackers as i try to explain this!! Jazz hands are were you do a sort of wave with each hand as in when you go da da!! (i think they are called jazz hands but i may have just completely made them up!!)

 

And the little green frog is a song where you go um um went the little green frog one day um um went the little green frog (as you say the um um you close your eyes and stick out your tounge) I look a complete loon as i am typing this singing it and doing the actions as i am trying to remember it!!

 

Hope this helps

The little red hen was going for a walk

That’s when she saw some wheat near a rock

The little red hen was going for a walk

That’s when she saw some wheat near a rock

 

She picked it up, dusted it clean saying.

“This is even better than a lima bean.”

 

What I have to do to plant this thing

Is dig a hole as round as a ring

 

Drop it in, cover it up

Does anybody out there want to help me out?”

 

The little duck said, “Not I quack, quack”

The little pig said, “Not I oink, oink”

The little cat said, “Not I meow, meow”

So the little red hen said, “I’ll do it somehow.”

She didn’t complain, and she didn’t moan

The little red hen did it all alone.

 

“It’s time to cut the wheat and take it to the mill

They’ll grind it into flour way up on the hill

 

Then carry it home, a sack or two

Does anybody out there want to help me out?”

 

Refrain:

The little duck said, “Not I quack, quack”

The little pig said, “Not I oink, oink”

The little cat said, “Not I meow, meow”

So the little red hen said, “I’ll do it somehow.”

She didn’t complain, and she didn’t moan

The little red hen did it all alone.

 

“To bake some bread, an egg or two,

Use the flour from the wheat that we grew

 

Put it in the oven and wait till it’s done

Does anybody out there want to help me out?”

 

Refrain:

The little duck said, “Not I quack, quack”

The little pig said, “Not I oink, oink”

The little cat said, “Not I meow, meow”

So the little red hen said, “I’ll do it somehow.”

She didn’t complain, and she didn’t moan

The little red hen did it all alone.

 

Now that the bread is ready to eat,

I’m glad that I found that little bit of wheat.

 

It’s time to sit down and enjoy this feast

Does anybody out there want to help me out?”

 

Refrain:

The little duck said, I do quack, quack”

The little pig said, “I do oink, oink”

The little cat said, “I do meow, meow”

But the little red hen said, “I’ll do it somehow.”

She didn’t complain, and she didn’t moan

The little red hen ate it all alone.

Oh, the Little Red Hen

Was asking all her friends

"Who will help me plant my grain?"

 

"Not I," said the dog.

"Not I," said the cat.

"Not I," said the little mouse.

 

So the Little Red Hen

With no help from her friends

Planted it by herself.

 

Oh, the Little Red Hen

Was asking all her friends

"Who will cut and grind my wheat?"

"Not I," said the dog.

"Not I," said the cat.

"Not I," said the little mouse.

 

So the Little Red Hen

With no help from her friends

Cut and ground it by herself.

 

Oh, the Little Red Hen

Was asking all her friends

"Who will help me bake my bread?"

 

"Not I," said the dog.

"Not I," said the cat.

"Not I," said the little mouse.

 

So the Little Red Hen

With no help from her friends

Ate it by herself.

 

So the Little Red Hen

With no help from her friends

Simply ate it by herself.

 

Yum! Yum!

Little Henny Penny

thought the sky was falling,

falling to the ground.

 

Little Henny Penny

said the sky was falling,

It almost knocked her down!

 

Run, Litlle Henny Penny!

Tell your friends!

Run, Little Henny Penny,

before it ends!

Run, Little Henny Penny!

Tell the king!

 

Tell the king the sky is falling,

falling right down.

 

Little Henny Penny

told Lucy Goosey

the sky was falling down.

Little Henny Penny

told Turkey Lurkey,

and all his friends around.

 

Run, Litlle Henny Penny!

Tell your friends!

Run, Little Henny Penny,

before it ends!

Run, Little Henny Penny!

Tell the king!

 

Tell the king the sky is falling,

falling right down.

 

Little Henny Penny

told Foxy Loxy

the sky was falling down.

Little Henny Penny

and all her friends,

followed him to town.

 

Run, Little Henny Penny!

It's a trick!

Run, LIttle Henny Penny!

You're in a fix.

Run, Little Henny Penny!

Run right home.

 

The sky was never falling,

falling right down!

Little Red Hen's Song [Mulberry Bush tune]

 

This is the way I plant the seed,

Plant the seed, plant the seed.

This is the way I plant the seed

So early in the morning.

 

 

- water the wheat

- cut the wheat

- go to the mill

-make the dough

- bake the bread

- eat the bread

Lola I know your problem trying to discribe little green frog song I tried to write it in my "regular songs" key ring (which I keep in my pocket as a prompt for songs at carpet time) and I couldnt even think of something as simple as writing "little green frog song"! the tune is very similar to an old sunday school song I remember.

 

as for chicken songs

I remember my children use to sing this one the words might not be 100%

 

Im a spring chicken (actions- children stand and flap arms)

Im yellow and small

my legs are not long (bend knees like PC Plod)

so i'll never be tall

 

Im spring chicken (children stand and flap arms)

Im yellow and small

my feathers are fluffy (shiver and rub hand up and down arms)

and there keeping me warm

 

Im a spring chicken (children stand and flap arms)

Im yellow and small

yes Im a real spring chicken

and Im having a ball (flap arms and turn/dance around on the spot)

im a chicken Im a chicken

and Im having a ball

 

 

the tune..... um dont know sorry no help :o

there are a load of verses but I dont know them either!

any one else know it?

Love all the Little red hen songs, will file them ready for next time

What I am really after is a downloadable copy of the little chicken song music ( as posted by Alison), we thought we had a cd, but alas no!

Does anybody know if such a thing exists?
