I’ve Been Working On The Railroad Lyrics

I’ve been working on the railroad

All the live long day

I’ve been working on the railroad

Just to pass the time away

 

Can’t you hear the whistle blowing

Rise up so early in the ‘morn

Can’t you hear the captin shouting

Dinah, blow your horn!

 

Dinah, won’t you blow

Dinah, won’t you blow

Dinah, won’t you blow your horn

 

Dinah, won’t you blow

Dinah, won’t you blow

Dinah, won’t you blow your horn

 

Someone’s in the kitchen with Dinah

Someone’s in the kitchen I know

Someone’s in the kitchen with Dinah

Strumming on the old banjo

 

And singing, “Fee fi fiddley-i-oh, fee fie fiddley-i-oh, ho-ho-ho, Fee fie fiddley-i-oh,”

Strumming on the old banjo!

Baby Shark Song

Here are the lyrics and movements for The Baby Shark Song – a song about a family of sharks on the attack!

While you are singing the Baby Shark Song, cup your hands and open and close them to make a baby shark.

Clap your hands for mama shark, and keep making bigger and bigger shark jaws with your arms until you get to grandpa shark. For the rest of the movements, see the notes in the Baby Shark Song lyrics!
