FARMERS COUNTING SONG


Here comes the farmer in his great big boots.
How many cows in the field today?
(sheep) (field)
(pigs) (sty)
(ducks on the pond)
One and two and three and four and five
Moo moo and he’s on his way.
(baa baa)
(Oink oink)
(Quack quack)

Chorus: Brrm brrm digger digger, brrm brrm digger digger
Brrm brrm digger digger, brrm brrm brrm.

Last verse: Here comes the farmer with his great big boots.
All of the animals are here today.
Turn off the tractor, have a nice cup of tea
Wave good bye, what a busy old day!

Actions:

Line 1: hands on hips, stamping feet
Line 2: searching, hand shading eyes
Line 3: counting on fingers
Line 4: nice loud animal noises as appropriate

Chorus: move round in the ring miming tractor driving

The song has got ‘Old MacDonald’ appeal but has tractor driving too!

JINGLE BELLS


Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way…
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh – oh!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way…
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh.

Dashing through the snow in a one horse open sleigh
O’er the fields we go, laughing all the way,
Bells on bob tail ring, making spirits bright,
Oh what fun it is to ride a sleighing song tonight. Oh…
Jingle bells…

A real Christmas favourite with everyone. Toddlers and nursery children love to shake sleigh bells
and if you like you can break up the song and stop the accompaniment to see if the musicians are
listening and stop their shaking at the same time. You can then continue with the piano, stopping every
four bars to savour the silences!

Its a great way to end a Nativity play as everyone can join in.
