Growing up with a musician for a mom, my sisters and I always took music for granted. We sang around the piano at home, we sang in the car, we sang before bedtime. We constantly had to be reminded not to sing at the table. We knew all the traditional kids’ songs, Christmas songs, patriotic songs and more. Who could ever forget all those wonderful songs?
Well, unfortunately, I did. When my own kids were born, I began a frantic search for all those great songs of my childhood. Many I remembered, in part or in whole, but there were many more that I had forgotten.
As I have talked with other parents over the years, I have found that mine is not an unfamiliar plight. I have searched across the internet for web sites that list these old childhood favorites, but most have only a handful posted here and there. Thus, the search became a project, and I have included my whole family in the process.
This site is in constant construction mode. We will continue to add great traditional children songs as we can, but we need your help.
If you know additional verses or alternate words to a song listed on Kid Songs, please leave a comment. We appreciate all input, and will be happy to include helpful info whenever possible.
If you know of a great kids’ song that is not yet listed here, please email it to us with any background info you can include.
