A call and response song I like to use to differentiate between the childrens’ voices and my own. They respond back to me up an octave. Key of G, normally on guitar.
Lyrics: Down by the Bay (Down by the Bay) Where the watermelons grow (where the watermelons grow) Back to my home (Back to my home) I dare not go (I dare not go) For if I do (For if I do) My Mother will say (My Mother will say) Did you ever see: *Insert rhyme* Down by the Bay!
Rhymes: -a fly wearing a tie -a goose kissing a moose -a llama wearing their pajamas -a dog sitting on a log -a cat wearing a hat -a bear combing his hair etc. I like to have the kids come up with their own rhymes or I will use their names to rhyme one.
