Hints and Tips: 

  • Learn the actions of the song

When all the cows were sleeping
And the sun had gone to bed
Up jumped the scarecrow
And this is what he said

I'm a dingle, dangle scarecrow
With a flippy floppy hat
I can shake my hands like this
And shake my feet like that

When all the hens were roosting
And the moon behind the cloud
Up jumped the scarecrow
And shouted very loud

I'm a dingle, dangle scarecrow
With a flippy floppy hat
I can shake my hands like this
And shake my feet like that

Get jammies on then lay down my head

But I'm not tired,
Can't fall asleep
What shall I do?
Let's count some sheep!

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Now we counted up to 10,
Still not asleep.
Let's count again!

Night Night!
Sleep Tight!

When you feel like something’s tickling your nose
And you really, really, really wanna sneeze
Don’t hold it back, that’s the way it goes
When you really, really, really wanna sneeze

Don’t be shy (Achoo!)
Don’t be shy (Achoo!)
When you really, really, really wanna sneeze
Wipe your nose (Achoo!)

When you really, really, really wanna sneeze

When you’re sniffing all the flowers and you’re playing in the sun
And you really, really, really wanna sneeze
You can cover up your mouth, wash your hands when you’re done
When you really, really, really wanna sneeze

If you’re allergic or you’re sick, or you’re tickled by a feather
And you really, really, really wanna sneeze
Don’t worry too much, it could just be the weather
When you really, really, really wanna sneeze

One falls off, goes to sleep.

Up comes a butterfly floating on the breeze.
