Songs
A Lost Tooth Song

(Sung to “Ta-Ra-Ra-Boom-De-Ay”)

Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay!

I lost my tooth today!

When I went out to play,

It just fell out that way!

Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay!

I lost my tooth today!

And I would like to say,

Hip hip hooray!



Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay!

I lost my tooth today!

But I know it’s okay,

‘Cause baby teeth don’t stay!

Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay!

New teeth will come my way!

They’ll grow in any day!

Hip hip hooray!
