Six Hogs On A Scooter by:Soinelli, Eileen

Songs
Down by the Station
Down by the station, early in the morning, see the little pufferbellies all in a row. See the station master turn the little handle puff, puff, toot, toot off we go!
Row, Row, Row Your Boat
Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream, Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.
Driver Song (tune of Old MacDonald)
Dani the Driver has a car, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, and on that car he has a horn: beep, beep, beep, beep, beep, with a beep here, and a beep, beep there, here a beep, there a beep, everywhere a beep, beep. Dan the driver has a car, beep, beep, beep, beep, beep.

Pete the pilot has a plane, zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom. And on that plane there are some wings: zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom. With a zoom, zoom here, and a zoom, zoom there, here a zoom, there a zoom, everywhere a zoom, zoom, Pete the pilot has a plane, zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom.

Other verses: Engineer has a train-chug.

Bonnie the biker has a bike-wiz.
