Songs
Up, Up, Up:
Here we go up, up, up,
Here we go down, down, down.
Here we go up, up, up,
Here we go down, down, down.
Rickety, Rickety Rocking Horse
Rickety, rickety, rocking horse,
Over the hills we go.
Rickety, rickety, rocking horse,
Giddy-up, giddy-up, whoa
Noble Duke of York:
Oh, the noble Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men.
He marched them up
To the top of the hill,
And marched them down again.
And when they?re up,
they?re up
And when they?re down, they?re down.
And when they?re only half way up,
They?re neither up or down.
Trot, Trot to Boston
Trot, trot to Boston.
Trot, trot to Lynn.
Look out baby,
You?re going to fall in!
