This page is a transcript of the Toddler Time with Kate and Mel at Corinda Library video on Brisbane City Council's YouTube channel. The video is 9 minutes and 20 seconds long.

 

>> KATE: Hi everyone! This is Mel and I’m Kate. We’re here from Corinda Library, and we’re going to sing you some songs - Toddler Time songs today.

So, we will start with Children’s Acknowledgement to Country, which I think everybody knows it goes like this:

>> TOGETHER: Here is the land, here is the sky, here are my friends, and here am I.

>> KATE: Lovely, let's try that one more time.

>> TOGETHER: Here is the land, here is the sky, here are my friends, and here am I.

>>KATE: Beautiful.

>>MEL: Very good. Now before we get started, I just had a message for all the parents and carers out there. We’ve got it up on our board, it says, "Children learn best from talking, playing and singing with us".

Best of all, this can happen any place and any time. So, you really can, you know, when you’re just at home doing the washing or anything like that turn it into a song, have a chat about it, and that’s the best way for kids to learn.

>> KATE: Absolutely! Ok and now we will start with our 'Hi Hello' song. So, everyone knows we have our hands like that, we can wave to each other, to Mum and Dad, siblings if you’ve got them at home. So, it’s…

>> TOGETHER [singing]: Hi, hello and how are you? How are you? How are you? Hi, hello and how are you? How are you today?

>> KATE: Very nice. Excellent.

>> MEL: Now next up [gasp] 'If You’re Happy and You Know It'. So, who here is happy and they know it? I am! 

So the first thing we’re going to do, if you’re happy and you know it, is we clap our hands. We clap clap. And the next thing we’re going to do is stomp our feet, we go stomp stomp stomp. And the last thing we’re going to do is shout hooray! So you ready? We go…

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

>>TOGETHER [singing]: If you’re happy and you know it stomp your feet [stomp stomp]. 
If you’re happy and you know it stomp your feet [stomp stomp],
If you’re happy and you know it then you really ought to show it.
If you’re happy and you know it stomp your feet [stomp stomp].

>>TOGETHER [singing]: 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 then you really ought to show it.
If you’re happy and you know it shout hooray Hooray!

>>KATE: So, Mel do you think we can do all three together a little faster? Let’s give it a go, do you remember? It’s clap clap, stomp stomp and then hooray!

>>TOGETHER [singing]: If you’re happy and you know it do all three [clap clap stomp stomp] Hooray!
If you’re happy and you know it do all three [clap clap stomp stomp] Hooray!
f you’re happy and you know it then you really ought to show it.
If you’re happy and you know it do all three [clap clap stomp stomp] Hooray!

>>KATE: Well done.

>>MEL: Good work! Well done.

>>KATE: So we’re doing…

>>MEL: 'Ten Little Soldiers'.

>>KATE: So this is a counting one, so we have our hands up like this with our ten little soldiers so it goes…

>>TOGETHER: Ten little soldiers stand up straight.
Ten little soldiers make a gate.
Ten little soldiers make a ring.
Ten little soldiers bow to the king.
Ten little soldiers dance all the way.
Ten little soldiers hide away.

>>KATE: Very good.

>>MEL: Should we do that one again?

>>KATE: Let’s do that one again.

>>TOGETHER: Ten little soldiers stand up straight.
Ten little soldiers make a gate.
Ten little soldiers make a ring.
Ten little soldiers bow to the king.
Ten little soldiers dance all the way.
Ten little soldiers hide away.

KATE: Very good. That’s wonderful. Ok so Corinda kids might be familiar with this puppet. This is our Galumph frog. So we’ll do our 'Galumph' song.

>>MEL: If you don’t have your own Galumph frog at home you can just use your hands as little Galumph frogs like I’ll be doing.

>>KATE: You can, that’s right. So it starts:

>>TOGETHER [singing]: Galumph went the little green frog one day,
Galumph went the little green frog,
Galumph went the little green frog one day,
and the frog went galumph galumph galumph.

>>TOGETHER [singing]: Now we all know frogs go [clap] la-de-da-de-da, [clap] la-de-da-de-da, [clap] la-de-da-de-da.
We all know frogs go [clap] la-de-da-de-da, they don’t go galumph galumph galumph.

>>KATE: Very nice.

>>MEL: That’s a lot of fun.

>>KATE: So we’ll put the frog away. But you will see Mister Frog when libraries are open again. We’ll be doing Galumph many times.

>>MEL: Oh no! I’ve lost my next song!

>>KATE: [laughs]

>>MEL: So… we’re going to do 'Old Macdonald'. Now I have my own little farm of animals here that I thought we could use. So first up, we’ve got someone who’s black and white and goes “Moo!”

>>KATE: Ahh. So does everyone know what kind of animal this is? It’s a cow.

>>MEL: So ready? We go…

>>TOGETHER [singing]: Old Macdonald 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 Macdonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O.

>>MEL: Fantastic. Thank you Mister Cow. Now who have I got next? I actually have one of these at home. You might have one at home as well. This is a little one that goes woof woof woof.

>>KATE: Yeah we have one at home. So does everyone know what this is? This is a...

>>TOGETHER: Doggy!

>>MEL: Ready?

>>TOGETHER: Old Macdonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O. And on that farm he had a dog, E-I-E-I-O. With a woof woof here and a woof woof there, here a woof, there a woof, everywhere a woof woof. Old Macdonald had a farm, E-I-E-I-O.

>>MEL: Oh very good, Mister Dog. Now next up [gasp] oh this is a fun one. So this one is pink! Likes to roll in the mud. And goes…

>>KATE: I think I know what this one is.

>>MEL: [snorts like a pig]

>>KATE: Does everyone know what it is?

>>MEL: It goes oink oink oink.

>>KATE: It’s a pig!

>>MEL: Fantastic! Thank you for joining in on my farm.

>>KATE: Well done you guys. Lovely.

>>MEL: Good work. So lucky last it’s time to start finishing up. So we’re going to do 'Open Shut Them'.

>>KATE: We start with our open hands.

>>TOGETHER [singing]: Open shut them, open shut them, give a little clap [clap]. Open shut them, open shut them, lay them in your lap.

>>TOGETHER [singing]: Creep them creep them, creep them creep them, right up to your chin. Open wide your little mouth but do no let them in.

>>TOGETHER [singing]: Roll them roll them, roll them roll them, roll them just like this. Shake them shake them, shake them shake them, blow a little kiss [kiss].

>>TOGETHER [singing]: Waving waving, waving waving, bye to one and all. Swaying swaying, swaying swaying, farewell one and all.
