Opening Song: Mister Sun The Grand Old Duke of York
Oh Mister Sun, Sun, Mister golden Sun The grand old duke of york
(arms circle overhead) He had ten thousand men
Please shine down on me First he marched them up the hill
(wiggle fingers down and point to self) Then he marched them down again.
Oh Mister Sun, Sun, Mister golden Sun And when you’re up, you’re up,
(arms circle overhead) And when you’re down, you’re down,
Hiding behind a tree But when you’re only half-way up,
(hide face behind hands) You’re neither up nor down.
These little children are asking you
(point to others) 5 Dinosaurs
To please come out so we can play with you To the tune of “5 Little Ducks”
(clasp hands together) One dinosaur went out to play
Oh Mister Sun, Sun, Mister golden Sun On a giant fern one day
(arms circle overhead) She had such enormous fun
Please shine down on me That she called for another dinosaur to come:
(wiggle fingers down and point to self) Oh, Diiiiiiiiiinosaur!
Slap hands on thighs to make “running” sounds.
Open Shut Them
Open shut them, open shut them Two dinosaurs went out to play…
Give a little clap, clap, clap Three dinosaurs…
Open shut them, open shut them Four dinosaurs…
Put them in your lap
Five dinosaurs went out to play
Creep them, creep them On a giant fern one day
Creep them, creep them They had such enormous fun
Right up to your chin That they played until the day was done!
Open up your little mouth
But do not let them in! All Around the Swamp
To the tune of “The Wheels on the Bus”
Two Little Blackbirds Pteranodon’s wings went flap, flap, flap
Two little blackbirds sitting on a hill Flap, flap, flap,
One named Jack, one named Jill Flap, flap, flap,
Fly away Jack Pteranodon’s wings went flap, flap, flap
Fly away Jill All around the swamp.
Come back Jack, come back Jill *kiss*
Triceratop’s horns went poke, poke, poke…
Two little blackbirds sitting on a cloud Apatosaurus’ mouth went munch, munch, munch…
One named Soft, one named Loud
Fly away Soft Closing Song: We Wave Goodbye Like This
Fly away Loud To the tune of “Farmer in the Dell”
Come back Soft, come back Loud *kiss* We wave goodbye like this.
We wave goodbye like this.
We clap our hands for all our friends.
We wave goodbye like this.
