Transport songs


Recommended Posts

A few years out of the loop and I’ve been asked if I can remember any transport songs by the lady who runs the toddler group.

I’ve remembered the obvious wheels on the bus

down at the station

row, row, row your boat

five little men in a flying saucer

bouncing up and down on a big red tractor

 

can you think of any more, please?

Ooh FM. I’d forgotten the rusty car one.  Please can you remind me of the rest? I’ve got the first two lines in my head ….

Twinkle twinkle chocolate bar

my dad's got a rusty car

turn the handle (?), pull the choke

off we go in a cloud of smoke

 

just don't quite remember the few words before the choke 😂

Just had a look in 'This Little Puffin' book, 

Here comes a big red bus,

A big red bus, a big red bus;

Here comes a big red bus

To takes us to the shops

other verses might be.....

Minibus to take us all to school

motorcar to take us to the sea

taxi-cab to take us to the station

dustbin lorry to take away the rubbish

 

it says sing to the tune of Jack and Jill I struggled a little with that!  Also felt it was a little of its time - maybe

 

Another one is a version of I went to visit a farm one day

I went across the street one day,

and saw a car across the way

and what do you think I heard it say?

Brrm Brmm Brmm

other vehicles could be motorbike/bus/ lorry   (milk float not very likely around here😂)

 

there are a few others but nothing I would have thought suitable for toddlers

my dad's got a rusty car 

start the engine ,  pull the choke (little history to explain this one!)

off we go in a cloud of smoke.

twinkle twinkle chocolate bar

my dad's got a rusty car.

Twinkle twinkle chocolate bar

My mum's got a shiny car.

push the button, foot goes down

watch her zoom around the town

Twinkle twinkle chocolate bar

my Mum's got a shiny car!

(the second verse if made up of course! call me Shakespeare! !!!)

It works to ‘here we go round the mulberry bush’
