Shiny yellow, green and blue.

Purple ends the pretty rays,

Only seen on rainbow days.

First comes red, and orange too.

Shiny yellow, green and blue.

Little Bunny Foo Foo

Little Bunny Foo Foo,

Hopping through the forest,

Scooping up the field mice,

And bopping them on the head.

Down came the good fairy, and she said,

Little Bunny Foo Foo,

I don't wanna see you,

Scooping up the field mice,

And bopping them on the head.

I'll give you three chances,

and if you don't obey,

I'll turn you into a GOON!

The next day,

Little Bunny Foo Foo,

Hopping through the forest...

After three chances, the good fairy turns Little Bunny Foo Foo into a goon.

There Was a Crocodile

There was a crocodile,

An orangutan,

A flying eagle,

And a silvery fish.

A bunny,

A beaver,

A crazy elephant!

On each repetition, leave out another animal, only making the motions.

Blinking Traffic Lights

Blinking, blinking traffic lights,

On the corner, shining bright.

Green means go, red means stop,

Flashing yellow, very slow.

Blinking, blinking traffic lights,

On the corner, shining bright.
