196  appendix C COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL Springtime Rain (Tune: “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star”) Sprinkle, sprinkle, springtime rain, Tapping on my windowpane. Raindrops falling to the ground, Helping plants to grow all around. Sprinkle, sprinkle, springtime rain, Tapping on my windowpane. It’s Raining, It’s Pouring It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring. He went to bed and bumped his head And couldn’t get up in the morning. Down by the Station Down by the station early in the morning, See the little pufferbellies all in a row. See the stationmaster turn the little handle. Puff, puff, toot, toot—off we go! What Shape Is This? (Tune: “The Muffin Man”) Do you know what shape this is? What shape this is, what shape this is? Do you know what shape this is, I’m holding in my hand? (Hold different shapes for the children to guess.) Mister Sun Oh Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun, Please shine down on me. Oh Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun, Hiding behind a tree. These little children are asking you To please come out so we can play with you. Oh Mister Sun, Sun, Mister Golden Sun, Please shine down on me. Please shine down on me! Five Little Fishies Swimming in the Sea Five little fishies swimming in the sea, Teasing Mr. Shark, “You can’t catch me! You can’t catch me!” Along came Mr. Shark as quiet as can be And snapped that fishy right out of the sea! Did You Ever See a Fishy? (Tune: “Did You Ever See a Lassie?”) Did you ever see a fishy, a fishy, a fishy? Did you ever see a fishy swim this way and that? Swim this way and that way, and this way and that way? Did you ever see a fishy swim this way and that? The Seashore Song (Tune: “Do Your Ears Hang Low?”) Feel the sand in my toes, Smell the ocean with my nose, See the children splash and play On a hot summer day. Hear the ocean waves go roar As they crash into the shore. Taste the salty sea! COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL
