>> SCOTT: Good morning everybody and welcome to Babies, Books and Rhymes here at Nundah Library. My name’s Scott and this is my baby Clarry. And it’s good to have your company here today at Nundah. We have been missing you a lot due to everything that has been going on. So good to have your company here today.

How about we get started straight up, with our children’s Acknowledgement to Country, which is just over here on my right, and do the actions together. Ok. Ready. One. Two. Three.

Here is the land; here is the sky; here are my friends; and here am I.

One more time.

Here is the land; here is the sky; here are my friends; and here am I.

Alright.

So, the important thing about these sessions is spending time with your bubs. And it’s important that they see your facial expressions. So, the idea of these sessions is to have fun, because when they see you having fun, and laughing and smiling, they will be having fun too. And that’s what we are endeavouring to do here today. So, first of all, we might just give everyone a big wave. We can see you all out there. Big wave. Ready. One. Two. Three.

[Singing] Hi, hello, and how are you? how are you? How are you?
Hi, hello, and how are you? how are you? How are you today?

Are you good? Good. Are you happy? I think you’re happy. I think we’re happy. We’re happy to be here. So what do we do when we’re happy? Clary’s giving you a little hint. Yes, that’s right, we clap our hands. Let’s do a quick happy and you know it. Ready. One. Two. Three.

[Singing] If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands [clap, clap].
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands [clap, clap]
If you’re happy and you know it and you really ought to show it
If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands [clap, clap]

If you’re grumpy and you know it, stomp your feet, stomp, stomp
If you’re grumpy and you know it, stomp your feet, stomp, stomp
If you’re grumpy and you know, then you really ought to show it
If you’re grumpy and you know it, stomp your feet, stomp, stomp

If you’re happy and you know it, shout hooray. Hooray!
If you’re happy and you know it, shout hooray. Hooray!
If you’re happy and you know it, and you really ought to show it
If you’re happy and you know it, shout hooray. Hooray!

Give yourselves a big clap. That was a wonderful start. Alright.

So, because, because we’re stuck inside a little bit these days, it might be nice to go outside. Well, pretend that we’re going outside. How about we go on a rowboat? But, a word of warning, though, apparently there is a crocodile in the second verse. That’s just the talk going around, so let’s just keep an eye on it. Make sure we are ok, all right? Here we go. Ready, Clarry. Right, let’s go. One. Two. Three.

[Singing] Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream,
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.
Row, row, row, your boat, gently down the stream
If you see a crocodile, don’t forget to scream. Aaaarrghhhh!

Did you see a crocodile? Did you? I didn’t. Did you see a crocodile, Clarry? No? I think it’s safe to continue. Ok. Let’s keep going.

[Singing] Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream,
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.
Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream,
If you see a crocodile, don’t forget to scream. Aaaaarrgghh!!

I saw a crocodile! Did you see one? I don’t think....I think it’s too dangerous to be on this boat. We might have to hop off. Alright, back on the shore we go. I think it’s too dangerous to be on a boat. I think it is safer being to be on a bus. How about we go on a bus? Let’s sing about the wheels on the bus. Ready. One. Two. Three.

[Singing] The wheels on the bus go round and round,
Round and round, round and round
The wheels on the bus go round and round,
All the way to town.

The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish
Swish, swish, swish
Swish, swish, swish
The wipers on the bus go swish, swish, swish
All the way to town.

The driver on the bus goes beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep
Beep, beep, beep, ooh
The driver on the bus goes beep, beep, beep
All the way to town

The sheep in the bus go baa, baa, baa
Baa, baa, baa
Baa, baa, baa
The sheep on the bus go baa, baa, baa
All the way to town

The tigers on the bus go raa, raa, raa
Raa, raa, raa
Raa, raa, raa
The tigers on the bus

TIGERS ON THE BUS! EVERYBODY OFF!

We can’t stay on a bus with tigers and sheep and all this going on. We can’t stay on a bus, we better hop off. Alright.

You know what? So we can’t be on a boat, it’s too dangerous We can’t be on a boat, we can’t be on a bus, it’s too dangerous I think it would be safer to be on a wall, like this chap.

Who is it? It’s Humpty Dumpty. And a fun fact for you guys at home about Humpty Dumpty. His star sign is a Gemini, because he was born out of a double yoker. That’s a Dad joke [laughs at himself] Ok. Back with the program. Humpty Dumpty. Ready. One. Two. Three.

[Singing] Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. Whooaaa!
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again

But fortunately, Humpty managed to pull himself back together And climbed back onto that wall so...

[Singing] Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. Whoooaa!
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again

But along came the children with sticky tape and glue and put Humpty together again, as good as new. Isn’t that lovely? I like happy endings.

Alright, so now it’s time for 'Clarry’s Choice'. So Clarry is going to whisper into my ear, and let me know what the next song is. Ok.

[Clarry whispers]

Yeah, let’s do that. All right, Ok.

So the next song we are going to do is 'Old McDonald’s Farm'. So, I’m going to hold up a toy and we are going to make that noise. Ok. Ready. One. Two. Three.

[Singing] Old McDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O
And on that farm, he had a pig E-I-E-I-O
With an oink oink here and an oink oink there
Here an oink, there an oink, everywhere an oink oink

Old McDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O
And on that farm he had a sheep, E-I-E-I-O
With a baa baa here and a baa baa there
Here a baa, there a baa, everywhere a baa baa

Old McDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O
And on that farm he had a cow, E-I-E-I-O
With a moo moo here and a moo moo there
Here a moo, there a moo, everywhere a moo moo

Old McDonald had a farm E-I-E-I-O
And on that farm he had an elephant, err, righti-o, E-I-E-I-O
With a bruurrr here and a bruurrr there 
Here a brruurr, there a bruurrr, everywhere a bruurr, brurr

 

Old McDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O
And on that farm, he had a dinosaur, hhrrrrr...E-I-E-I-O
With a raah here, and a raah there
Here a raah, there a raah, everywhere a raah-

Right, this is getting silly

Old McDonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O. Yay!

There we go.

There’s a story about Old McDonald. It’s an interesting farm to visit, if you’re in the area.

But there was one glaring omission from Old McDonald’s Farm and it is...who is it? It is this guy. Who is it? It’s Garlumph. He loves to dance, so how about we sing a song for him. Ready. One. Two. Three.

[Singing] Garlumph went the little green frog one day
Garlumph went the little green frog
Garlumph went the little green frog one day
And the frogs went , garlumph, garlumph, garlumph

But, we all know frogs go [claps] la-de-da-de-da [claps] la-de-la-de-da [claps] la-de-da-de-da
We all know frogs go
[claps] la-de-da-de-da
They don’t go garlumph, garlumph, garlumph.

Excellent. You know what’s better than singing a song for Garlumph? It’s singing a song for two Garlumphs. Here they are. Get Clarry all set up. Let’s go. Alright. Two Garlumphs. We can sing Garlumph now in stereo. One. Two. Three.

[Singing] Garlumph went the little green frog one day
Garlumph went the little green frog
Garlumph went the little green frog one day
And the frogs went , garlumph, garlumph, garlumph

But, we all know frogs go [claps] la-de-da-de-da [claps] la-de-la-de-da [claps] la-de-da-de-da
We all know frogs go
[claps] la-de-da-de-da
They don’t go garlumph, garlumph, garlumph.

Excellent work. Give yourselves a big clap. The Garlumphs are so happy. They’ve had such a great time. All right.

So, we are running out of time. So we’ve only got time for one more song. So, now Clarry needs to probably go to sleep now so [clicks fingers] there we go. Clarry’s asleep. It’s as easy as that. Trust me. So, our last song is about a bear. So we have to stand up and do this last one so we stand up here so this last one is about a bear.

Actually, this isn’t a bear...THIS is a bear. Alright. And we are going to sing 'Bear Is Now Asleep'. One. Two. Three.

[Singing] Everybody clap (clap, clap, clap)
Everybody sing, la, la, la, la, la
Bow to your partner, and then you turn around hee-hee
Hands in the air, rockabye your bear
Bear is now asleep, shh, shh, shh
Bear is now asleep, shh, shh, shh

Second verse is same as the first.

[Singing] Everybody clap (clap, clap, clap)
Everybody sing, la, la, la, la, la
Now to your partner, and then you turn around hee-hee
Hands in the air, rockabye your bear
Bear is now asleep, shh, shh, shh
Bear is now asleep, shh, shh, shh

 

Bear is now asleep, shh, shh, shh
Bear is now asleep, shh, shh, shh

SCOTT: Just before we go guys, it’s been great having you here, we have been missing you terribly. One thing that’s very important is we have to...

[Singing to the tune of Baby Shark] Wash our hands, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Wash our hands, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Wash our hands, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Wash your hands

Get them clean, do, do, do, do, do, do, do,
Get them clean, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Get them clean, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Get them clean

Get them dry, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Get them dry, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Get them dry, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Get them dry

Now you’re good, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Now you’re good, do do, do, do, do, do, do
Now you’re good, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
Now you’re good

That’s going to stay in your head for the rest of the day. So until next time, I’m Scott at Nundah Library. Hope to see you again soon. Have a great day. Bye now.
