    Thanks for posting these songs. I’m an early education major at SFASU in Texas and we are required to make song cards to be included in our portfolios. While most of them are required to also have the notes shown, some can have only lyrics.

    Do you have Take Me Out to the Ballgame?

    Since I’m from Texas, I especially enjoyed the link to the Texas site.

    Thanks again, Michele

    Jane, let me see if I can find that one. I had it written down at home, one of several that my sisters and I remembered and wrote out when we were together last Christmas… and then I never got them posted like I had planned. I’ll see if I can find it and get it online. May take me a few days to find, but I’ll do my best.

    I’ve added the “Wink’em Blink’em” that I learned as a kid, which apparently more commonly goes by the name “Winkum Winkum.” The link above has been updated accordingly.

    Thanks for visiting Kid Songs!

    How about the song “Mr. Sun”. It’s a great song and I will try to send all the words to you.

    I’m trying to find all the words to the song “Madalina Catalina”. I’m not really sure if that is the title, but the song goes something like;
    “Madalina Catalina Oopenstien, Openstien, Oaka, Polka, Mocha was her name. She had two hairs in the middle of her head, one was black and the other one was red. She had two teeth in the middle of her mouth one pointed north and the other pointed south. Oh Madalina Catalina Oopenstein, Operstein, Oaka, Polka, Mocha was her name!

      I found this off a camp resource page:

      Catalina Matalina
      There was a funny girl, she had a funny name
      She got it from her pappy just the same, same, same.

      CHORUS:
      Catalina Madalina, Hoopin Stina, Walla dina
      Oaka, Poka, Loka was her name.

      She had two hairs on the top of her head
      One was alive and the other was dead.

      CHORUS

      She had two eyes in the front of her head
      One was green and the other was red.

      CHORUS

      She had two teeth in the front of her mouth
      One pointed north and the other pointed south.

      CHORUS

      Her nose was so long that when she sneezed
      It got caught in between her knees.

      CHORUS

      Her ears stuck out like the sails of a boat
      Her Adam’s apple wandered up and down her throat.

      CHORUS

      She loved to polish her fingernails
      She bought her polish in ten gallon pails.

      CHORUS

      The language that she spoke was an awful joke
      Her head was made out of solid oak

      CHORUS

      Her feet were flat as bathroom mats
      I forgot to ask how they got like that.

      CHORUS

      A ten ton truck hit our Madalina…
      That was the end of that machine-a…

      CHORUS

    I was led to this sight by searching “wink em blink em” but the song you have listed is not the one I am looking for. my grandfather used to sing me a song I only knew as “wink em, blink em, and nod” but I only remember bits and pieces of the words. no matter where I look I cannot find the complete lyrics! if you find and add this song PLEASE email me!

      is it maybe called Winkin Blinkin and Nod?

      Winkin’, Blinkin’, and Nod, one night sailed off in a wooden shoe;
      Sailed off on a river of crystal light into a sea of dew.
      “Where are you going and what do you wish?” the old moon asked the three.
      “We’ve come to fish for the herring fish that live in this beautiful sea.
      Nets of silver and gold have we,” said Winkin’, Blinkin’, and Nod.

      The old moon laughed and sang a song as they rocked in the wooden shoe.
      And the wind that sped them all night long ruffled the waves of dew.
      Now the little stars are the herring fish that live in that beautiful sea;
      “Cast your nets wherever you wish never afraid are we!”
      So cried the stars to the fishermen three – Winkin’, and Blinkin’, and Nod.

      So all night long their nets they threw to the stars in the twinkling foam.
      ‘Til down from the skies came the wooden shoe bringing the fisherman home.
      ‘Twas all so pretty a sail it seemed as if it could not be.
      Some folks say ’twas a dream they dreamed of sailing that misty sea.
      But I shall name you the fisherman three – Winkin’, Blinkin’, and Nod.

      Now Winkin’ and Blinkin’ are two little eyes and Nod is a little head.
      And the wooden shoe that sailed the skies is a wee one’s trundle bed.
      So close your eyes while mother sings of the wonderful sights that be.
      And you shall see those beautiful things as you sail on the misty sea,
      Where the old shoe rocked the fishermen three – Winkin’, Blinkin’, and Nod.

    I am looking for the name of a children’s song. The lyrics are:

    I like to ride on my bike, it makes me feel so free.
    I follow the traffic rules and my father is proud of me.
    My arm goes up when I turn to the right, it goes straight down when I stop.
    I walk my bike across the busy street, exactly like my pop when he was my age………

    It was on a children’s record when I was a child. Who sang it? The record also had a song about pixies. Singer was female.

      I don’t have any of the information for you. I was just singing this song to myself this afternoon and decided to Google it, thus finding your question. You actually remember more of the words than I do, but then I’m 58 and I think I must have last sung it in school at age 8.

      Somebody out there has to know the details and have the full lyrics. We can’t lose pop culture that fast!

      • 12. Jenna  |  September 28, 2009 at 3:15 pm

        hmm, I’m pretty sure it’s “follow the traffic light”, which rhymes better with bike.

        It also had “I have a pony named Tony, he lives on the merrygo round…” and Dr. Sniffle swiper

        I got it! I just looked for Dr Sniffle swiper, the singer is Dora Hall, there are a bunch of videos of the songs on YouTube, they’re off Imagine That! I can’t find the lyrics,but it looks like YouTube has all the songs :)

        I’m only 28, but we listened to this album all the time driving from Alberta to visit relatives in B.C.

      Linda Lundstrom the Fashion Designer? Anywho, I have been looking for the very same song for quite some time. I remember playing a 45 of this song on my parents record player. I don’t recall the b side or the artist. Have you been able to find anything since your posting?

      I remember that record well. It was a LP large record called “Oozy’s Kidsongs”
      made in the 1970′s. The songs on that record are as follows,. They were all sung by a woman, who has a soothing voice as any kid would remember in the 1970′s.
      I think her name may have been Ozzy Harriet.

      Toni the Pony
      Buy A Balloon
      I like To Ride On My Bike
      Dr. Sniffles Wiper
      The Dixiland pixies and their pixiland band
      Dream Little Boy And Girl
      God Gave His Hand

      I’ve tried to search for this, but with no luck. This was a great record, and they don’t make songs like this anymore.

      The words I remember for the second part were –
      My arm goes up when I turn to the right, it goes straight down when I stop.
      It goes straight out when I turn to the left, exactly like my pop when he was my age.

      The first time through that chorus, the words were this –
      Exactly like my pop when he’s driving.

      Gotta go check out YouTube PRONTO!

      I sing that song all the time but I have no idea who wrote it. I use to listen to my little 45 record. One side was “I like to ride on my bike” and the other side had “Mr. Squiff and Mr. Squee”.

    I am looking for the lyrics to a song with the following lyrics.

    “Wouldn’t you, Wouldn’t you, like to wear a wooden shoe.
    Like the little children do, do in Amsterdam.”

    Anyone ever heard this? I used to sing it when I was little but that is all I can rememer of it.

        I don’t know the name but I remember this from hte lyrics:

        Wouldn’t you, wouldn’t you like to wear a wooden shoe?
        Like the little children do, oh do in Amsterdam?
        In the land of tulips, with windmills all around
        Everywhere the children go, you hear this happy sound!
        Clip Clop. Clip Clop. Clip Clop. Clip Clop. Clip Clop.
        Oh wouldn’t you, wouldn’t you like to wear a wooden shoe….

        I’ve been trying to find the rest of it for years as well.

        I too had an album with the Amsterdam wooden shoe song onit. The album was American and was centered around The Little Red School House. “In the little red school house down the lane…”. I loved all the songs on it as a child in the 1970′s and would love to hear the recordings again.

        Here’s the cover of the album. I do not own it and I think that eventually Peter Pan records produced records with just one or two songs on them because I do not remember all of the songs listed on this one.

  • 25. A  |  October 1, 2010 at 7:29 am

    Ok, so everyone here thinks I am crazy. I think the song was called “baloney boll-weevil”.
    Lyrics are something like…..
    “baloney boll weevil, riding his bike every chance that he can. A dare devil jumper, a rubberman bumper(???), a thrill seeking son of a gun, oh yeah!

    Where is Thumpkin? This is sung to the tune of Brother John. It helps with hand and eye coordination. It involves the child putting both hands behind their back and one by one each hand greets the other by singing the song and bringing each had to the front while wiggling the appropriate finger on one hand as it “greets” the same finger on the other hand. At the end of each greeting one hand and then the other is returned to the child’s back.

    “Where is Thumpkin? Where is Thumpkin ?” (thumbs)
    “Here I am”” (bring one hand to the front with the thumb up)
    “Here I am” (bring the other hand to the front, thumb up)
    “How are you today sir?” (wiggles like nodding to the other thumb)
    “Very well I thank you? (the responding thumb wiggles}
    “He runs away” (fist hand returns to the back)
    “He runs away” (second hand returns to the back)

    The ditty continues with each finger repeating the action of back to front, then the wiggle, then returns to the back.

    “Where is Pointer, where is Pointer?”
    “Here I am, here I am”
    “How are you today sir, very well I thank you”
    “He runs away, he runs away.”

    “Where is Tall Man, where is Tall Man?”
    “Here I am, here I am”
    “How are you today sir, very well I thank you”
    “He runs away, he runs away.”

    “Where is Crooked Man, where is Crooked Man?”
    “Here I am, here I am”
    “How are you today sir, very well I thank you”
    “He runs away, he runs away.”

    “Where is Short Man, where is Short Man?”
    “Here I am, here I am”
    “How are you today sir, very well I thank you”
    “He runs away, he runs away.”

    “Where are all the men? where are all the men?”
    “Here we are, here we are”

    Then the ditty stops and the children jump and clap and simply let go of energy.

    Back about 50 years ago there were 2 songs that were quite funny but I have not been able to find them again. The lyrics were as follows:
    1. Two popcorn kernels in a red hot pan
    one turned to the other and said “hey Man’
    I’m too pooped to pop, just lay’in here frying
    the salt and butter’s ready and the fire’s hot
    but it seems like I’m just too pooped to pop!

    2: Charlie was a boxer brave as he could be
    Til one day they started boxing on TV
    ( More Lyrics)
    Charlie would rather act than fight
