Way Up High In the Apple Tree
Way up high in the Apple tree
I shook that tree as hard as I could
(make shaking motion with arms)
Down came the apples
(bring arms down)
Mmm, they were good!
(rub tummy and smile)
Here is the Beehive
Here is the beehive.
Where are the bees?
(look at your fist)
Hiding inside where no one can see.
(shake your head)
Here they come, out of their hive.
One, two, three, four, five...
(open your fist, one finger at a time)
(gently tickle your child with the five "bees")
Tick, Tock goes the Clock
(this one can be done while moving your arms as if they're hands on a clock)
Two hands move round and round.
1, 2, 3, 4
Always moving, more and more.
5, 6, 7, 8
Making sure you're never late.
9, 10, 11, 12... that's the end,
now let's go around and do it again.
