Bedtime Nursery Rhymes and Preschool Songs


Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
Wee Willie Winkie
Hush, Little Baby
I See the Moon
Go to Bed Late
Diddle, Diddle Dumpling

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are.





Wee Willie Winkie

Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town
Upstairs and downstairs in his night gown
Knocking at the windows
Crying at the lock.
"Are the children in their beds?
It's past eight-o-clock."



Hush, Little Baby

Hush, little baby, don't say a word,
Papa's going to buy you a mockingbird
If that mockingbird won't sing
Papa's going to buy you a diamond ring
If that diamond ring turns to brass
Papa's going to buy you a looking glass.
If that looking glass gets broke,
Papa's going to buy you a billy goat.
If that billy goat won't pull
Papa's going to buy you a cart and bull.
If that cart and bull turn over,
Papa's going to buy you a dog called Rover.
If that dog named Rover won't bark,
Papa's going to buy you a horse and cart.
If that horse and cart fall down,
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.



I See the Moon

I see the moon,
And the moon sees me.
God bless the moon,
And God bless me.



Go to Bed Late

Go to bed late,
Stay very small.
Go to bed early,
Grow very tall.



Diddle, Diddle Dumpling

Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John,
Went to bed with his trousers on;
One shoe off, and one shoe on,
Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John!




Preschool Songs and Nursery Rhymes for Tea-time


Cup of coffee Tea for Two
I'm a Little Teapot
Polly Put the Kettle On
Wash the Dishes
One, Two, Three


In our home, we drink tea often throughout the day. I was amazed one day that when I asked my children to sing a song about tea, that each child thought of a different song and now it has become a tea-time ritual!

My 3 year old chose "Tea for two", my five year old sang "I'm a little tea-pot" and my 7 year old chose "Polly put the kettle on."



Tea for Two

Picture you
Upon my knee
Just tea for two
And two for tea,
Just me for you
And you for me alone.

These are the lyrics of the first verse of the song Tea for Two - published in 1924 - music by Vincent Youmans & words by Irving Caesar From the musical comedy No No Nanette



I'm a Little Teapot - do the actions too

I'm a little teapot short and stout
Here's my handle (place one hand on hip)
Here's my spout (bend other arm at elbow and wrist to make a spout)
When I see the teacups
Here I shout:
"Pick me up and pour me out!" (bend over sideways towards the spout)



Polly Put the Kettle On

Polly put the kettle on
Polly put the kettle on
Polly put the kettle on
We'll all have tea.

Sukie take it off again
Sukie take it off again
Sukie take it off again
We're all gone away.



Wash the Dishes

Wash the dishes, wipe the dishes
Ring the bell for tea.
Three good wishes, three good kisses,
I will give to thee.



One, Two, Three

One, two, three
I love coffee,
And Billy loves tea.
How good you be,
One, two, three,
I love coffee,
And Billy loves tea.
